Passion ~ A Fallen Novel by Lauren Kate



Passion ~ A Fallen Novel (Book 3) by Lauren Kate




Firstly before I jump into this, I'd like to say that I was so looking forward to this third book in the Fallen Series. I began listening to with such high expectations and as it progressed I just felt sad that it didn't live up to its predecessors in any way, shape or form.

These are my thoughts after it ended:

I've just finished listening to this audio book and think that it should have been titled 'Damp Drawn-Out Squib'   I really hate to have to put a downer on it, but there's nothing else I can say. The first two books in the series were very good, well-paced with a good plot, this however was a painful, slow, very repetitive waste of time.

In fact you could jump from book two to four 'Rapture' (when it's released) and not have missed a thing. It was as if the author was just trying to stretch the series out with a 'filler' book and sadly it just doesn't deliver. I was very disappointed as the main character Luce becomes even more whinging, whiny and seriously annoying (She was marginally annoying in Books one and two, but it could be overlooked due to other engaging aspects in the story). The plot holes in this book were just too obvious to let go of, and the progression of the story became flawed and pained, like a long drawn out tooth extraction with no anaesthetic.

I think it was desperate attempt to create something just for the sake of creating something, this really backfired in my opinion. Plus the fact, that when writing about time travel, you need to have made certain that everything is worked out well in advance, especially if it's a later book in a series, as now the first two books also looked flawed, as there are certain elements that would have shown up in book one and book two, so this addition is an obvious afterthought, and the fact that none of the previous questions get answered make it even more of an exasperating waste of time and money.

So save your sanity and your time by jumping forward in time from Book Two to Book Four....

My rating for this book is a 2 out of 5 and I am being kind at that.

  2. I never thought I'd live long enough to actually read a positive Fallen review. You said you found the plot of the first book interesting and all that...bullshit. The book is nothing more than the life of a stereotypical emo kid teen girl who falls in love for two men, and later finds out they are of vampiric nature...oh wait, that's the other garbage, Twilight. Well same turd. The plot is childish and almost nonexistent, all the action (?) being packed in the last 60 or so pages of that crap. The protagonist, Lucy, is a typical stupid American girl with a dull, badly shaped character. I wouldn't recommend this garbage to anyone over 12 years of age.

  3. Thank you so very much for your comment Cookie, and if you had read my comment properly, you would have discovered that I wasn't singing any praises for this particular novel - Passion.

    I sense that you have a deep dislike for the YA PNR genre, and if that's the case, then why bother to read it and upset yourself so much? As this is obviously the case with the tone and content of your comment.

    I can only suggest that you try other genres to read, as that perhaps would ease your intense YA PNR pain and anguish. Spare yourself the apparent torture of main-stream YA PNR and go for indie authors instead, you may find something that you actually like.

    Thanks for stopping by and have a really lovely day :)
