So…Forever released yesterday.
If you follow this blog you know that Forever is the final book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy. The first book was Shiver.
It’s a great series. Seriously. It’s awesome.
I’m saddened that it’s over.
So I got my copy of the book when I got off work yesterday. I also attended a signing for the author, Maggie Stiefvater.
This is the result:
Today I finished Forever. It was excellent, a stellar way to end the series. This is a slower type of book, but very satisfying. I’m not going to review it formally because I don’t want to ruin the book on the second day it’s out, and anyway I don’t think I’m very good at writing reviews. I don’t look for writing style (though this book is written excellently) when I’m reading a book. I tend to get caught up in the story. And, of course, that doesn’t make for a good review because it’s spoilers galore.
But I’ll try to review it in my own way, as best I can:
Forever was suspensful. Like I said, it was slower, but sometimes you needed that to take in all the revelations that went on. And a lot did happen in this book, with all four of the narrators. It had its incredibly sad moments and its unbelievably happy moments, and I think it ended on the right foot, even if it was bittersweet.
It was refreshing to read a book that was different. It seems now that most of the books I read are chock-full of action.
Not to say that this book was devoid of it. It had its tense moments.
In any case, I liked it. If you like werewolves and love stories, definitely check it out.
Friday will be the Day of the Deathly Hallows Review. I promise I’ll do my best to actually talk about the movie in depth.
Also, there will be pictures.
And happy reading.
