The ending is superb and deeply satisfies the reader. All of the narration comes together to leave an accomplishment... but had I not persevered through the book my initial lack of interest (which spanned for 3/4 of the book) would have won out. Brick Lane takes too long to go anywhere and seems to spend too much time explaining the plot rather than living it. Nazneen's seclusion from the world did not work to the favor of this book and her emotions seem stifled. Hasina's letters seem to be a bit odd in place as Nazneen only seems to be casually interested in them. However, if you can wait out for the last few chapters of the book you will find that it is a quiet gem of a read... though you may not read it twice.
DEAD UNTIL DARK provides a compelling read with a world and plot that readers do not need to struggle to believe unlike many supernatural stories. Unique and enchanting with a strong sense of mystery allows the reader to fully sink their fangs into this addicting book. The narration is odd at first; Sookie seems to be too perfect in the beginning, but her true character is fetching as she is a strong woman who takes initiative. Before this book and before the TV Series I'll admit that I did not care for southerners. I've been mistaken, southern flair is awesome. This book is awesome. I look forward to the rest of this series.
This book started out slow and throughout has parts which should have been crossed out. There is not a lot of depth in this book. But despite these weaknesses I do feel like this series has promise and I'll continue to read it. There were a few twists that were pleasing and I have high hopes for this to be a fair series worth buying.
A good clean romance book that will fetch the hearts of most readers. Those who enjoy romance, of any kind, will appreciate Hake's strong plot and lovable characters. Ruth, though clumsy, has faults for being impulsive and not by her outward quirk of clumsiness which help drive her decisions good and bad that delight the reader. As an atheist I was surprised by how much I liked this book. I do not enjoy too many references to god and even though she seems to say it one too many at times that it disrupted the pacing even people like myself will ignore it and appreciate the characters' strong faith which helps case this book together. I had no idea this was a series until this review but I hope to purchase the rest. You must check Letter Perfect out!
