Mandi Kaye @ Never Too Fond of Books

Louisa May Alcott may as well have been writing about me when she wrote "She is too fond of books and it has turned her brain!" But I am a staunch believer that there is no such thing.

A Million Suns - Beth Revis Reviewed at http://www.mandikayereads.com/archives/733Beth Revis is one hell of a writer. I didn’t feel quite as unsettled reading this one, but I think it’s because Eldest is dead. He was the character that fueled most of my frustration in the first one.This one has no less frustration, but it’s handled differently. There’s no lying to the masses – Elder is truly trying to do his best and be honest with every one. But, as is to be expected, the masses don’t handle it very well. One of my favorite things about these books is the way Revis writes humanity – she really nails it. Some people are good and some people are bad – and crowds always fuel the fire.One of the twists – toward the end – should have been predictable. I mean, really it should have been. But Revis wrote her characters so well that it ended up completely surprising me.I loved it! I absolutely can’t wait to read the next one – I’m betting it will be the best one yet.
