Read full description of the books Alaska - RATED R VERSION:So, lets start at the beginning. I left a review on Amazon, and since then, I've read the rest of the book. It took me hours to read it. And since then, I've felt that I should share this with the entire community. This book is not good.
But more of that later in the review.
I read this book when Bella was writing on Wattpad. I liked it, it needed a BUNCH of editing, maybe some trimming with the characters--because let's be honest, they're annoying as crap--but I saw real potential in her story. When she announced she was publishing, my reaction was sort've like this:
Then, I bought it for 99 cents, because let's be honest, the paperback is WAY to expensive, and I wanted to know if she'd invested enough into this book to actually deserve a place on my shelf. I was glad that I did that before dropping twenty dollars--because let's be honest, my reaction while I read this book, was slowly slipping to painful. I had to FORCE myself to read this stupid book, with the characters being flatter and more confusing than before.
I HATED this book. I don't hate books very often. Sure, I get really angry because books don't go the way they really should. BUT I REALLY, REALLY hated this book.
For one, the book was not edited. Like, large glaring error edited. Like the author only had her friends look over the book, and they didn't know what the heck they were doing. It was bad. Missing commas, missing quotation marks, more and more made me just want to rip my hair out. The dialogue was flat, the characters more so, and the story jumped around and was so boring, I went back to reading Twilight just so that I could read something exciting for a change.
I big issue was the content. I didn't understand what the author was trying to do with her plot. It was all over the place, and didn't make any sense. It jumped, a LOT and I wasn't even sure that the author planned between her arcs. Just that she wanted to get there, even if it meant sacrificing her entire book to get there.
Third: characters. They are as flat as the pages of her book. Like, damn, they have NOTHING about them. Grayson's the biggest jackass of them all. He's abusive, borderline psychotic. Chloe is a naive girl who sits down and whines the entire book. Literally, I think that she is the definition of spoiled, and stupid. Just. Wow. I haven't hated a character more than House of Night, and at least I could get through the first and second book of that.
Fourth, descriptions. They suck. Bad. First chapter, when we're introduced to Chloe, she's described as having "iced-over" eyes. She's cynical about her appearance, but can stop an entire room with her beauty. Okay, should I call you Chloe, or maybe Bella Swan, or Mary Sue perhaps? God, just... wow.
The romance is NOT ROMANCE. It's abusive, it's rushed, and it doesn't make sense. It's the most uncomfortable thing to read in the entire book. There is no push pull feeling, there's just telling, and that's what the majority of this book is. The author just TELLING us what to think. Never really allowing for the character's actions to speak louder than their words. I don't really know what to make of it, but I defiantly don't like it. At all.
Don't bother trying to read about the secondary characters, they're so flat, I'm sure that they've inverted themselves on the page. It's like someone took a bunch of random facts, stitched them together, and called them characters. Yeah, not a page turner. Looks like no secondary characters will save us from our misery of this book, this day, or any other day. At least Twilight had wonderful side characters.
Another thing I had a huge problem with, not counting the crappy dialogue, the unexplained romance, or the *gag* horrible descriptions, was the way the author built her entire story. Usually, there is structure, there is sense, there is a semblance that the author knows what they are doing. Nope. Not here. Not at all. I could tell where the author had other scenes and cut them out, but didn't bother to even stitch the wound so we (the readers) couldn't even tell that it was there. It was horrible. Just, I wish that she would've invested some sort of time and energy to look over her book before putting it out there.
So, overall. I give it a 1/5. Don't read this book unless you want to take out a red pen and actually figure out what the author was trying to do herself.
