Let me start off by saying I love Scott Westerfeld. I've read a couple of his books now and I've adored each one that I have read. So it's really no surprise to my adoring little heart that I have fallen in love with yet another one of his books. This man is a genius! I love his lyrical writing, h...

This novel wasn't bad, but it could have been much better. I think there was definite potential and the concept was crazy original. It just didn't really do it for me. I even tried to set it aside for a few days thinking that maybe by the time I picked it back up I'd be able to be more interested in...

Afterworlds is actually two books in one told in alternating chapters -- the story of Darcy, who has just completed her first novel and is moving to NYC, and the story she wrote, called “Afterworlds.” I thought this was an interesting way to lay out the book, but I was also worried that it would be...

Afterworlds is a book told in two storylines -- the first, that of Darcy Patel, the author of the book Afterworlds, who writes the book in a month during high school and is very quickly picked up by a publisher. She puts college on hold, and moves to New York to write the rest of the series and get ...

There are two whole novels here, and I enjoyed both of them enormously. One is a paranormal fantasy about a California girl who dies and meets the Indian god of death, and thereafter can see and talk to ghosts. It reminds me quite a bit of Meg Cabot's Mediator novels, which I also enjoyed enormous...

This was a huge disappointment for me, because I was very intrigued with the idea of the two stories running parallel and weaving together. Plus, I was a fan of Scott Westerfeld's Uglies series.It really fell flat. Both Darcy and Lizzie were lame protags, and their stories became more and more borin...

First initial reaction to Afterworlds? This book is long....its well written, unique and fun for writers and bloggers but long. As its really two books in one its about 600 pages and around 300 I was feeling a little bit bored. But the ending made up for it. I really loved the endings, especially si...
