It was an extremely frustrating read. Was it even edited? If so, a note to the author: The misspellings, poor punctuation or complete lack ofand grammatical errors made this an atrocious read, and is a large part of my negative review. That aside, the story copies much from a Twilight-esque point of view.
The characters needed to be more defined, and events did not flow appropriately, often leaving big holes laureb blanks What to say The characters needed to be more defined, and events burrd not flow appropriately, often leaving big holes and blanks in the story. The only part of the story that felt compelling was immlrtal time spent in France. This should have been built upon. I think that the author has a significant amount of potential.
The book needed some serious editing which again, I hope it didn’t actually GET I don’t typically give harsh reviews, but when I spend 4 days on a book that probably warranted one I get a little frustrated. Nov 24, Cayra rated it did not like it Recommends it for: Frankly, this book sucked. Spoilers ahead, don’t continue if you want to read it. The main character, Alina, meets two boys, both extremely handsome, but as different as night and day.
She meets Samuel day first, and has an ohmigod-I love-him moment, but is confused by how he pretty much avoids her. Duncan night on the other hand, seems to really like her, but also seems to be a playboy. After going with Duncan for a while but still pining for Samuel she finds out that they are vampires an Frankly, this book sucked. After going with Duncan for a while but still pining for Samuel she finds out that they are vampires and in this books, vampirism is a disease that is spread like rabies, through one bite.
Samuel and Duncan were best friends but fell apart after falling in love with the same girl. So, other vampires come into the picture, and, worried that she might be in danger, the boys smuggle Alina to England. But, naturally, the bad vampires figure out where she is and blackmail her into turning herself over.
She discovers that Duncan was in with the bad vampires, but, before she can do much about it, the master vampire literally walks up to her, bites her wrist, and walks away. She lauden goes through a chapter where she’s all wonked out as the “disease” goes through her system. She wakes up, a vampire and suffering from amnesia, and Duncan tells her that they are in love and Samuel attacked her. This book felt like a bad rip-off of Twilight and Vampire Diaries.
Similarities lauden names ex: I found myself frustrated by Lauten pointless Bella-esque mind and the obvious story. I only finished it because I can’t stand to Im,ortal finish a book. View all 3 comments. Apr 16, Kristen Eufemi rated it it was ok. I can see talent in Miss Burds writing but the storyline was ripped right out of twilight lauen the mistakes were hard to ignore. I felt next to no connection with any character. The lead character lives in a very selfish world like most 18 year olds I guess but has dynamic characters in her life that she barely stands to be around or interact with.
One of my hang ups in this story is that being a vampire has zero negative draw backs. Its a virus which you can only contract b I was disappointed! Its a virus which you can only contract by being bitten, there is no mention of needing to drink blood, or no sunlight or even garlic. If you had a problem with Edward sparkling you would really have issues with Duncan and Samuel because the only “vampire” trait they have is that they live forever. Again I see no down side so why bother saving your friends?
Anyway I wouldn’t recommend this book. I hope she keeps writing because I think she could be great if she would explore her own creativity. Dec 20, Wendy rated it did not like it Shelves: This book laureb a disappointment for me. First of all, the grammatical and punctuation mistakes were horrible.
Secondly, the story itself seemed like it was ripped out of other popular YA novels. Sometimes, it was even blatantly obvious. Even more obvious was that the immortals’ skin was cool and their breath smelled sweet. Those two things don’t even seem hurd romantic to This book was a disappointment for me.
Eternity (Immortal Trilogy): Lauren Burd: : Books
Those two things don’t even seem remotely romantic to immoratl in the first place, so why bother? Then there was the part about needing to bite someone in order to infect them with the virus that makes them immortal.
With the exception of drinking blood, the immortals are basically vampires. Then, of course, we have the climax where she has to flee from another immortal who is hunting her.
Whether intentionally or not, this book was a copy of Twilight, and, sadly, not as well done.
Another issue I had with this novel was the constant idolization these guys received from EVERY other girl mentioned in the story. Maybe I just wasn’t THAT girl in college and didn’t know any others that were, eitherbut the way the girls kept throwing laauren at the guys just seemed a bit over the top.
I also, frankly, didn’t understand what was all that wonderful about the main character that had so many guys chasing her the entire story. There just wasn’t that much depth in her character to warrant that much attention. The storyline also jumped around somewhat awkwardly.
Only a few sentences after she gets her first kiss, suddenly two weeks have passed. I’m sorry, but YA novels thrive on romantic entanglements, and this story just skipped over a crucial part. It also would have given some depth to the relationship that might make the “I love you”s said later on in the book seem a bit more believable.
The relationship with the mother was unnecessary and confusing. To start the story off with such animosity between characters without explaining it was more than a little frustrating, but then she was suddenly out of the picture completely. As with most YA fiction, the parental figures tend to be fairly insignificant, but it was almost as if the mother was mentioned just for the purpose of explaining why there were no parents around to interfere with the story.
The last thing that irked me was the ending. I’m not going to spoil it for those who are reading this to see if it is something they might want to read, but after the final page, I was simply left with the feeling that everything I had just read was a complete waste of time.
Jan 07, Juliana rated it did not like it. This book drove me crazy. It was a ridiculously similar book to Twilight, with different aspects from each of the four books. Okay, so let’s walk through this. Perfect for each other. Alter ego, also fighting for the girl. Oh no, crazy force that is coming and is a threat to the girl, and the two guys in love with her must protect her! I seriously considered putting it down to stop the reading, it was making me laugh so hard.
