There's no buildup or rising or falling action. In my opinion, the action is just a flat line the whole time. The book starts off with Ivy and Tristan in a car crash, which I personally think is the climax of the book, and with him saying that the brake doesn't work. Then basically the rest of the book is about Tristan getting Ivy's attention, even though you already know how it's going to end.
You already know that they're going to end u If there was a 'zero star' button, I would use that. You already know that they're going to end up dating and you already know that they're going to get in a car crash because of the little thing in the beginning.
Most of the book is a mix of an extended flashback and Ivy moping. Nothing happens. The element of surprise isn't surprising. At the end of the book, there's supposed to be this big revelation that someone tampered with the brakes and forced them off the road. That's probably supposed to be the climax, but I figured that out in the first pages, when the book states, "'That's funny,' Tristan murmured. The animal's eyes blazed. Then light came from behind it, a bright burst around its dark shape.
A car was coming from the opposite direction. Trees walled them in. There was no room to veer left or right. It was evident to me, at least, that something was wrong with the car. Maybe the author thinks that the readers aren't as intelligent. Maybe she thinks Tristan isn't that intelligent. Maybe my copy of the book which I got online got messed up and put their car crash in the beginning. The heroine is annoying.
I thought I would never have to read another mopey Bella Swann book, but here it is. After Tristan dies, Ivy just becomes depressed. She lashes out at her friends. She loses belief in her religion.
She dismisses her brother. Are you serious? Her throwing out her angel statues are the equivalent of smashing a picture of Jesus. She claims, "If angels were real, if angels were our guardians, Tristan would be alive! Ever heard of the phrase "Everything happens for a reason"? Also, I felt like Ivy couldn't fend for herself. She couldn't see what was right in front of her eyes either, and refused to see that angels actually did exist. The characters have no depth.
I feel as though all of the characters just have one aspect of their personality that they follow. Suzanne, for instance, is this party girl who is pretty much obsessed with Gregory, her crush.
Later on in the series, this leads to her choosing Gregory over her supposed "best friend". But if Ivy was her best friend then she would actually listen to her. I felt like I couldn't connect with any of the characters in the book, nor did I want to. Oh, and Tristan and Ivy's "love". Yeah, no. I didn't feel any of it. The author said they were in love, but I had no way of discerning that because none of Tristan's or Ivy's seemed that romantic. Personally, I thought they were just annoying.
The book isn't believable. So apparently, Tristan can just take in Ivy's cat. Just like that. Doesn't he have to, oh, I don't know, ask his parents? I don't remember anything about him doing that, and even if he did, no parent in their right mind would let their son -- who had no idea how to care for a cat -- just get a cat, just like that. And how come the drama teacher had them jump off a diving board?
It seems like connections were trying to be made where there were none. Ooh and on top of that, Ivy got over her fear of water just like that. If the love of my life made me stand of top of a tower for an hour that rhymes!
I would be even more scared of heights, not not scared at all. I'm not sure how the author expects us to believe it. Don't read this book, and save yourself the agony.
