Fallen by Lauren Kate

What if the person you were meant to be with could never be yours?

17-year-old Lucinda falls in love with a gorgeous, intelligent boy, Daniel, at her new school, the grim, foreboding Sword & Cross . . . only to find out that Daniel is a fallen angel, and that they have spent lifetimes finding and losing one another as good & evil forces plot to keep them apart.

Get ready to fall . . .

Guys, I hate trolling about books. Even if I really dislike a book, I will still say something redeeming about it in my review. But this? It’s just irredeemable. That’s why I’ll state the good and bad here, and save the ugly for another post.

I decided to read this book when a friend of mine saw the trailer of the movie and suggested the book to me. The trailer makes the series seem pretty good, but guys, don’t fall for the dramatic music. Maybe the movies might be decent, but not the books. Similarly, don’t fall for that gorgeous cover. Never in a million years, at least for me.

One drawback was that there was absolutely no action. Maybe 97% of the actual plot amounted to 3% action throughout the first book which amounted to a couple of pages riiiiight at the end. Waaaay too much detail was given about the most trivial of things, and I felt like Lauren was wasting her time on minutiae.

You can’t sell a book to people if the main character is absolutely despicable. Remember how I said that the ugly was going to be saved for another post? Guess what? That post will feature singularly on Luce – the protagonist who you will learn to hate. Details will come soon.

On the other hand, I never actually finished this series. I DNFed (Did Not Finish)ed when I was on around the fifth or sixth page of book 2. Maybe it gets better who knows? Well guys, I don’t really plan on finding out.
