A Good Read

The Silver Kiss, by Annette Curtis Klause, was one of the books that I have been wanting to get for over a couple months now. I just got it for Christmas and, as soon as I got it, I dived in.

One of the reasons why I really liked this book was because of Zoe, the main character, reminded me of myself. Zoe, in the book, had a couple of on the side problems going on; her best friend, Lorraine, was moving, her mom had cancer, and her Dad was barely there because he was at the hospital along side of her mother's hospital bed. Throughout the book, Zoe was struggling with all these problems and she was more turning over the pessimistic side of every situation. That, until Simon, the mysterious boy she saw in the park, came along.

I'm not going to give away the end of the story, but when Zoe and Simon finally start talking, Zoe finally starts inching towards the optimistic sides of every situation.

This book was a good, emotional read that possibly everyone can relate to in some way.

Uh, nice try I guess...

There is not enough attraction between the characters...it spends too much time talking about their separate lives when the book is supposed to be about their relationship. Hello?? the book IS called silver 'kiss'

    Dissipointed ):

    This book started off strong with great characters and so much potential, but about half way through the book it all started to fall apart. I had to force myself to finish this book.

    Disappointing):

    I read this book when i was in 7th grade. I was really into mystery books and after going through all of R.L. Stine's Goosebumps and Elm Streets, I turned to vampire books. This book was recommended to me by my then teacher so I decided to give it a try. Like written on the headline this book was simply boring and, afterall, disappointing. The plot lacked an interesting element and I found that i was myself myself to finish it. if you're into these kind of book like I was, I'd recommend the Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice, or if looking for something easier to handle but definitely a good read, Cirque du freak series.

    Not a fan...

    This book was very hard to get into. I was about to put it down for good, when it started to climax a little. I don't think the plot unfolded smoothly at all. It was also written in a way that made it impossible to read easy. I'm not a fan. But, I tried!

    A Tear-jerker

    Yes, I have rated this book a two and call it a tear-jerker. This book bored me, and my whole book club. I think that only three of the members read the whole thing, and that was out of ten people. The whole, being depressed and feeling like dying vibes that came from this book made me feel like keeling over. The only thing I can say was even half-heartedly funny was when 'territory was marked'. How this book gets praised I will never know, but I can say I will never recomened it to a valued friend or family member.

    Maybe I'm being negative

    This book is being praised as a top reading novel although I find the book lacking anything of interest. The fact alone that the main character let a stranger walk her home and then later on invite him inside her house while still having doubts about him is really moronic and idiotic. This book is great for young teenagers. I recomend it to 12 year olds up to 15 other wise this book wont hold any challenge to you.

    Vampire

    This book is okay for amateur readers, but wasn't written for more advanced readers. Everyone already knows the story of the beautiful mortal who falls in love with a vampire, but then the vampire dies and the girl learns some valuable lesson; why hear the same story again? I don't recommend this story very highly, because it's not very imaginative, and insults the intelligent mind. I'm sorry to sound so negative, but this book isn't worth reading.
