The moment Luce looks at Daniel she knows she has never felt like this before. Except she can't shake the feeling that she has ..... and with him - a boy she doesn't remember ever setting eyes on.
Will her attempt to find out why enlighten her - or destroy her?
....... From the outer back cover.
FIRST SENTENCE: Around midnight, her eyes at last took shape.
MEMORABLE MOMENT: "Yes," she said, "the best kiss I've ever had." And even though it had been her only real kiss, Luce knew that if you asked her again in sixty years, a hundred years, she would say the same thing.
One of the most soppy, romantic stories I've read in a long while as well as one of the most frustrating - a novel of 452 pages, it has taken the author the first 352 to set the scene, to let us in on the secret.
I've read an awful lot about this novel on various different blogs and, in the main, they all seem to agree that it's a great story. Something I'm afraid we are going to have to agree to disagree on.
Ok, so it wasn't exactly a bad read, goodness only knows I read it quickly enough (in a day) BUT that was only because I was desperate to make some kind of sense of the whole thing.
With an average plot, Fallen's characters I found to be 'limp' and irritating in the extreme and as for the 'love triangle' between Luce, Daniel and Cam? Was it only me who found it to be not unlike the triangle of Twilight's Bella, Edward and Jacob? Oh I don't know, perhaps I just wasn't in the mood for a story so sickeningly slushy.
Fallen was purchased at Newcastle Airport.
Always happy to share what other bloggers think of a book, Click HERE for Nina's view of Fallen.
