Ame way And sure maybe they HAVE *DIFFERENT BUT I DON *different outcomes but I care nough to find out because I am literally bored to *outcomes but I don t care nough to find out because I am literally bored to I liked Shanti but I didn t like Chris and I wasn t partial to Sarina itherI had an inkling I wouldn t like this one when Chris our first protagonist decided she wasn t like other girls and was only friends with boys because girls only care about makeup and fashion and she didn t like that Please burn it with fire I am SO SICK of this idea And sure maybe she felt that way but it is up to authors and people in the industry to change this tone and this idea into something different that lifts up other girls and women in general rather than tearing them down Then when we meet Sarina Kat one of the other dancers in her hip hop troupe hates her because Kat s boyfriend thinks Sarina is attractive Again I get that this definitely happens but can we please have the tone of these types of interactions done in a better way so that girls who find themselves in this situation don t feel like they have to defend themselves Let s hate on the skeevy boyfriends who tell their girlfriends that they find other girls attractive Fuck those guysThe world building bothered me in two different ways that intersected The first being that the world wasn t xtremely consistent and the rules and laws and all that jazz were to be honest stupid Evolved have to wear costumes Evolved have to ither join their nations hero groups or give up their rights but don t worry someone will xplain that to you Evolved have to wear arm bands to signify they are dangerous don t Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts. even get me started on this one There was so much wrong with this world that I couldn t handle it And on top of this we are told how to feel about the world An Evolved called Preacher thinks maybe God has left and given different parts of his powers to the Evolved which he calls Godkin and one of the main characters Chris immediately dismisses this as wacko Now I am not religious at all but why are we being told this is wacko when there is nothing to prove to the contrary Why can t she just think well that can t be true because of this scientific reason rather than dismissing religion and faith And with Sarina at one point she info dumps so much information but it is so skewed for her opinion on it rather than facts that I feel like I m not uite sure what the actual information about the Pulse and the Evolved are and what is just made up by the characters In all honesty I just stopped caring and couldn t make myself get through the rest of this section to get to the next And I don t really care what happens I was told this is akin to a VE Schwab book which is OBVIOUSLY what sold me but that is not the case This is of a case of been there done that way too many times with nothing new added to the canon I really don t recommend reading itBooks and Ladders Books Are My Fandom Twitter Instagram Bloglovin.
