It was just SO BAD. I&#39;m curious to see how Sea of Monsters turns out, especially after they decided to change Annabeth&#39;s hair color back to blonde and made a bunch of other changes to try to be more true to the book. I&#39;m on the fence about it, but I think there might be some hope that it won&#39;t suck as much as the first one. :P<br /><br />Julia @ <a href="http://thathapachick.blogspot.com" rel="nofollow">That Hapa Chick</a>Julia :)http://www.blogger.com/profile/04961460353502898001noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4061231377175017865.post-69146555044010717162013-07-09T20:30:44.046-05:002013-07-09T20:30:44.046-05:00I agree that The Hunger Games was really well done...I agree that The Hunger Games was really well done.

I actually love hearing that this not only isn&#39;t written in a more traditional manner, but that the story&#39;s contents themselves are outside of the norm. And I love how you mention the link between mental illness and creativity. I&#39;m fascinated to see how that&#39;s played out in the story (even if the characters don&#39;t suffer from mental illnesses, per se). Such a well-written and thoughtful review!Cold Laser Dallashttp://www.coldlasertherapy.comnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4061231377175017865.post-31222006173852810332013-06-04T17:45:13.645-05:002013-06-04T17:45:13.645-05:00I had the same feelings with this book, the whole ...I had the same feelings with this book, the whole love/hate.

So, I went into it, not expecting too much. I was determined to read this one, despite the poor reviews because I LIKE boarding school books. For me, this one was different. At first, Allie makes friend, only later does the common &quot;mean girl&quot; plot take over. I thought they wasted an awful lot of time on the Summer Ball. It got a little boring to me. Unlike you though, I was not able to predict the outcome. I was actually interested in the strange way everything shook out in the end. I&#39;ve read some reviews for the next book and it looks like it quite a bit better than this one. So I&#39;m in, how about you?<br />Gina @ My Precioushttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01895568426820464572noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4061231377175017865.post-48372717254922051772013-05-16T02:38:46.726-05:002013-05-16T02:38:46.726-05:00This book sounds great and I&#39;m going to read i...This book sounds great and I&#39;m going to read it very soon!!
