I’m gonna make this quick.
I don’t see the point of this book.
If I had bought it with my own money, I would have been angry. But as it was, I had only borrowed it from the library, full of optimism and excitement.
I didn’t realise beforehand that this was ‘Beautiful Disaster’ but from Travis’ POV. But that could have been ok, I’m down with a re-telling.
But this is copied. Pasted. And then damn well published. It offered hardly anything in the way of extra content and I found that seeing it from Travis’ perspective undid a lot of work that was made in the previous book to make both characters seem like reasonable, semi-adults.
I had a lot of high hopes and excitement for a sequel to Beautiful Disaster.. But this was not what I expected at all.
Can somebody please enlighten me as to the point of this book? I don’t understand why anyone would want to sit and read one book.. twice.. The element of surprise is lost!
That said, I’m going to read Beautiful Oblivion, it’s currently on order. I’m giving McGuire a chance to redeem herself. Please, please, PLEASE, let it be a good ‘un.
