Women So Dumb That Surviving to Adulthood Seems Unlikely

 

 

My first installment was about the love of abusive asshole men, and how they are romanticized. This time, I'm going to look at the women that are so stupid you don't know how they make it in life.

 

Chosen (House of Night Series): I want to start out by saying I read the whole series. And for the first several books, I loved it all. I loved the world and I loved the characters. But then it got stupid. Zoey is supposed to be saving the world, but she really spends more time boning boys than doing anything productive. She went from hero to boy crazy, and nobody seemed to think she needed reigning in. She also couldn't see things that were right in front of her face and was way too soft and forgiving.

 

Twilight: It makes the list again, simply because Bella is as unappealing as a rock. She is devoid of personality. And she can't figure out obvious plot points. Not to mention she thinks only she can turn the tides in every single fight the Cullens have with outside forces. Which always ends up putting her in danger and making things worse rather than better.

 

Evermore: Ever was a bitch. There is no way to put it any better. After her parents die, she goes to live with her rich aunt. And she acts like a horrible brat. She drives drunk, drinks at school, and goes off to the beach with a boy she hardly knows. She's always rude, and she even keeps her sister's ghost hostage for most of the book. I don't know why so many people liked this terrible book. Ever was horrible.

 

Halo: Oh, Bethany, you empty-headed little twerp. She was the worst representation of an angel I have ever seen written. She lies, she makes out with a guy, she gets trashed at a party. And that little tidbit is where I really got frustrated. Because supposedly, the angels have all human knowledge...but she didn't know alcohol would get her drunk. All of the angels in this book were stupid, but Bethany took the cake.

 

Taking Chances: Harper. Harper was raised by a marine father. Harper had never been inside a mall in all her 18 years. Harper didn't know having unprotected sex for 2 days would end up with her popping out a child. Harper also took a guy bruising her as a term of endearment. She believes that no matter how fucked up she makes her life, a rich, muscle-bound man will swoop in and take care of everything. Buy her a tricked-out car, a townhouse, adopt her illegitimate baby. And there are never any true consequences to her stupid actions. In fact, everyone will swoon over you and coddle you. Because you're super special.

 

The Infernal Devices: Barf. Tessa is so dumb she has to live with a house full of people just to not die. Which she tries to do at every turn. And while not attempting death, she makes out with 2 guys. One that is adorable and sweet. One that is a complete dick. And as things go, she falls for the asshole that calls her a prostitute. Lofty goals, lady. Let's close with the fact she abandons her family when her husband dies. Poof. No more momma. Don't call us, we'll call you.

 

Have I given you a headache yet?

Review: Pieces of Hate by Tim Lebbon
Pieces of Hate (The Assassins Series) - Tim Lebbon

Pieces of Hate collects two Tim Lebbon stories revolving around the assassin Gabriel - "Dead Man's Hand" and "Pieces of Hate." Gabriel is on the hunt for Temple, who slaughtered his family, and it provides the basis for two equally interesting settings with one serving as a de facto western (albeit a weird western) and the other a good old-fashioned pirate story, respectively.

 

I won't say more about Gabriel, his mission, or Temple because, really, why spoil the fun of those discoveries? There's some interesting history between these two figures, and if you've read the book description you already know the gist of it.

 

Frankly, I'm a bit torn on this book. It's filled with good ideas and interesting locales, which I liked a lot, but the execution just didn't jibe with me.

 

In "Dead Man's Hand," we join Gabriel in the infamous Wild West town of Deadwood. This one's a first-person POV narrated by a man named Doug who discovers a bloodied-up Gabriel in his shop. Doug's personal history isn't exactly one that would mark him as an adventurer, and he's about as interesting as the timber walkways lining the fledgling community's horseshit covered streets. Gabriel and Temple are, of course, the most interesting aspects of this story, but with Doug serving as a filter most of that gets watered down. Doug, you see, doesn't know what the hell is going on and can't really tell us anything meaning. Lebbon teases us with hints of a much better story than what is actually delivered by hapless Doug. We get all kinds of mystery and intrigue, but zilch in the way of answers and resolution. Thanks for nothing, Doug.

 

"Pieces of Hate" is the more interesting of the two, because PIRATES! This story is a close third-person account with a much stronger focus on Gabriel than the introductory story, and contains a bulk of the meat missing from "Dead Man's Hand." Unfortunately, it's equally frustrating in its resolution, and those hoping for an epic showdown between these sworn enemies will be disappointed. While there's some nice swashbuckling elements, I would have preferred a stronger finale for my time investment.

 

As a collection, Pieces of Hate provides two stories that are well written, but which lack a satisfying resolution. I guess the end of the second story offers a slim glimmer of hope that maybe a third story will come out to put a pin in all this with a decent finale. I might even be swayed to read it. Lebbon has some great ideas here, but none that are fully realized.

 

[Note: I received a copy of this title from the publisher, via NetGalley, for review.]

An Empire of Traitors by Serban V.C. Enache
An Empire Of Traitors (Of Hate And Laughter Book 1) - Serban Valentin Constantin Enache

This is the beginning of a very epic tale. There are dozens of characters and storyblines that are woven together - somewhat. I think as we go along things will become quite a nice tapestry of the world. This isn't just epic in the character count, but in the size of the world and realms. We go from nomadic desert kingdoms to frigid northlands and the places in between. There are hints of magic anc magical creatures, although I have yet to see one outside of dreams.

There is a lot of setting up the various story lines and beginnings. Almost too many. Outside of the usurper timeline, many of them didn't seem to go anywhere yet. This was a little disappointing because I really like to see forward progress and development of all the little pieces.

I'm sure these will be continued into the next book and I hope to see a lot of great things. I just wish more of those great and exciting things had happened in book one.

*This book was received in exchange for an honest review*
