You know, I think after talking to a couple of people about it, reading a couple of reviews, I can see better why someone would like these books I am not a girl who cares for The Wings of the Dove, so I cannot understand this particular preference, but I can observe that people have it I guess that there is something about vague wordiness that is attractive to some readers, and, you know, I can see how that is a thing Maybe it is like black licorice Like, it is objectively disgusting, but some people like it I kid I kid mostly Anyway, I would not say that I have a particular problem with Ms DeStefano s vague wordiness, actually, but it is my impression that, for some, this characteristic redeems the absence of character development, plot, and understandable world building in her books So, there s that I will tell you what I do have a problem with, though, but I feel like I need to move to a new paragraph at this point, so you are going to have to be content with no snappy thesis sentence in this review It s the DeStefano way Ahh, yes Much comfortable Soo, anywhoo In one of my Intro to Lit classes in college, I had this lovely professor who advised us that whenever we read anything, we should ask
4.5 starsThis is the first book I ve read this year that grabbed me And I mean it grabbed me In fact, it s the first book that s going right on my 2012 favs shelf You know I m picky and you know my bar is pretty high, but I LOVED this book Lauren DeStefano stole my heart with her lyrical prose in Wither, but she took my breath away with Fever But before I start gushing uncontrollably about how much I loved this book, I feel I need to talk about this cover for a minute I m gonna be honest here and say that when I first saw this cover, I didn t exactly like it In fact, my exact words were, It looks awful And why does her hair look like that She looked so much better on the first cover She looks like she is strung out on drugs Total fail on this one Smh Sigh I really should stop judging a book by its cover because unlike some books where the cover is completely misleading cough The Shadow Reader cough , Fever s is very accurate Every detail you see on that cover has something to do with the plot from the drugged facial expression and body position, to the tarot cards, right down to the color of the dress Yes, yes Someone read this book before the
2012 Seriously I can t wait that long I want to get my hands on that book NOW This is total agony cries Fever is Book 2 of the Chemical Garden TrilogyRhine and Gabriel have succeeded in escaping the mansion, and they are determined to find Rhine s brother, Rowan However, it s a very short time before they are in danger again as they fall into the grips of an evil brothel owner I really liked some of the secondary characters introduced in Fever I had a very soft spot for young Maddie We learn a lot about her and her story really tugged at my heart strings Lilac, Silas, Jared and Claire were also great characters that I wanted to know about They met up with all sorts of people Lots of bizarre characters at the carnival brothel, some very strange restaurant owners, as well as a psychic But again some of the characters stories just seemed to end abruptly and I was left wondering what became of them.I read though this rather quickly I will admith though, that I was skimming the pages a little I was anxious to know what was going to happen It seemed like there was a lot of detail about events that didn t seem all that important and yet a lot of important questions went unanswered I really wanted to learn about the real world outside the mansion but it just felt like not very much happened in this book I found the relationship between Rhine and Gabriel odd They almost seemed like brother and sister at times I found myself wondering half the time if Gabriel even wanted to be there Don t get me wrong there are some tender moments but it just
About a year ago, I reviewed Fever, and it was pointed out to me how positive the review was compared to my rating you can still see on my blog, but which I m not going to link to, because, though I meant it at the time, this is one book where hindsight has really changed my opinion Since I don t believe in major edits to my blog reviews, I m going to change this one, because I really don t care.What I Liked The writing, sort of Lauren DeStefano has a very interesting, unique style that, while not precisely my thing, I can appreciate the merits of Her writing will specifically appeal to those who appreciate a poetic sort of style.Rhine and Gabriel s relationship is very awkward They have no sort of chemistry and it becomes apparent when they run away together If you shipped them, this will be a negative for you, but I thought it made a nice change from the typical instalove sort of scenario Sometimes intense attractions are born solely from the stressful situation in which the character has found herself, like being sold to some guy she doesn t know as a baby machine.That s pretty much it, but the book is also very readable, which is what led me to rate this book too highly initially In adjusting to my own rating system, it took me some time to fully appreciate that just because I read a book quickly, that doesn t necessarily mean that I liked it.What Annoyed Me Fever suffers from some se
Not good at all Oh, wait No one likes it when I leave a single sentence review Breathless fangirls and guys are even now lurking in the darkness of the internet, waiting to leap out with their all caps denunciations HOW CAN U SAY THAT WITH NO REASON U JUST DONT GET IT ITS TO DEEP FOR YOU I m sorry I m sure some of them can spell I m a little bitter from my last bad Goodreads experience, with other fan fave Name of the Wind But there s no need to be rude, and I m sorry for casting aspersions upon DeStefano s fan base I guess there s something that reminds me of Name about this book The same overwrought faux Victorian prose, loaded with improbably purple dialogue and shoddy character descriptions Here s something that has bugged me for 100 pages the main character at one point claims to mutter something unintelligibly to herself Can you do that I mean, even if you mutter very softly and don t enunciate, I m pretty sure you still know what you re saying With all of the other problems with the book, I am not sure why that one stuck in my teeth, but there you go If you, like me, love books about bleak pitiless futures and strange diseases, just give this book a miss, no matter how alluring it may seem You could have just stopped at my first sentence Fever is really not good DeStefano has captured the tone of a melodramatic teenager who
Liebes Fever,was war denn das Deine gro e Schwester Wither und ich hatten so eine gute Zeit zusammen und jetzt kommst du daher und machst alles kaputt.Ich bin wirklich entt uscht Ich habe so viel mehr von dir erwartet, stattdessen f hlst du dich an wie ein L ckenf ller.Es ging ja ganz gut los Karnevalszenerien gewinnen mich immer schnell f r sich, sogar diese sehr rotlichtstichige Ein Riesenrad, ein Karussell, farbenpr chtige Zelte, eine verschrobene Karnevalsk nigin und s lich bet render Rausch in der Luft Perfekt Die Atmosph re hat mich genauso umgehauen wie Rhine und Gabriel Ich fand fast gar nichts Schockierendes an dem voyeuristischen Liebesspiel, zu dem sie gezwungen werden Das k nnte aber auch daran liegen, dass du dich dar ber so ausschweigst Rhine hat doch vorher noch mit niemandem Sex gehabt oder Und jetzt, wo es unter so extremen Umst nden sogar mehrmals dazu kommt, beh ltst du wirklich alle Details f r dich Das finde ich echt nicht fair.Und wo ich schon bei Rhine und Gabriel bin die beiden sind so anziehend wie Feuer und Eis Da gibt es nicht das kleinste F nkchen Chemie K nnte daran liegen, dass Gabriel einfach null Charakter hat.Versteh mich nicht falsch, du liest dich wirklich ganz gut Lauren DeStefano hat sich wieder alle
Things will get worse before they get better A little agony before the fever will break.Fever, the second installment to The Chemical Garden Trilogy, picks up immediately where Wither left off As Rhine and Gabriel escape Linden s mansion in search of their freedom and Rhine s twin brother, they find themselves captured by Madame Soleski and forced to become a perverse display for profit The story unfolds into a brutal yet subtly romantic dystopic nightmare where no matter how harsh and morbid it becomes, there seems to be something that makes this novel increasingly addicting I ll admit right now, I am sort of shocked at myself for how engrossed I ve become with this trilogy It s definitely not like anything I ve categorized in the past as romantic, beautiful, or hopeful, yet there s a deep seeded part of this story that deserves those exact descriptors and it s for reasons that hide beneath the layers of DeStefano s story telling As I read certain scenes, I d find myself both cringing and embracing this author s ability to enrapture me with her bold skill to push my comfort level yet keep me fully engaged She seamlessly creates a j
An improvement over Wither Fever starts exactly where we left off in the midst of the excitement from having escaped The issue I had with Wither lacking energy, where I had a feeling of restlessness being with those girls in their big mansion unmoving, is not the case any In Fever, we re out in the real world Things are moving fast and the anxiety is heightened As a lover of fast paced dystopians, I found myself much preferring this second installment.We re following Rhine and Gabriel on the run Rhine is trying to find her brother, while Gabriel is seeing the outside of the Mansion for the first time in a decade As in Wither, I didn t feel a lot of chemistry between these two They are clearly good for each other always there to help one another, but there s no rooted passion between them Fortunately, the plot doesn t center around the romance as much as their escape and, eventually, what s happening to Rhine She s started getting sick with the same symptoms as the virus No one knows why, or how to fix it.Although it s still not at the scale I was hoping, we do learn about the outside world in Fever Rhine and G
