I have read this book previously but with the movie coming to the United States at some point soon I hope I wanted to reread it. Since all of my books yes I own the series are in storage I decided I would buy the audio book. Needless to say I got into this book remembering the general story line and character names but that's about it.
It was like reading the book for the first time and I loved it. I instantly fell back in love with the story and the characters.
There is a lot happening in this book and somehow it all flows really well and forms a great story. I enjoy Lauren's writing style as well.
Now the narrator. I enjoyed the way Justine told this story.
I feel like the narration was lacking something. I feel like maybe dual narration male and female would have been better.
But Justine did a great job in making sure you could tell who was talking. I look forward to continuing my reread of this series. It's been so long since I read the series that it will be like reading the series for the first time again. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. It's was mildly intriguing, as I'm an adult I feel my teenage self would enjoyed this immensely.
I only give this 3 stars as this book included an excerpt from one of Lauen Kate's books which included epilogue, of course I started to read it and then thought "wait a minute how did that happen to the characters I just read about in Fallen"? Only to discover it was the 5th book in the Fallen series! Major spoiler! Why read the other 3?
Really annoying they don't warn if you read this excerpt major spoilers ahead! Kinda bummed, wanted to stick with it but now moving on.
So I basically biught this book a long time ago, started reading it but couldn't really get into it so I stopped reading, wikipedia the whole book summary and said that was that.
Then last week on amazon video, saw there was a movie! Watches the preview and loved it! So I decided to give the book series another try. It took me 3 reading tried to get into the Immortal instruments at first too and now I love the entire series! As I read this book, the writing really isn't the best. There's ALOT of mental dialog from the main character, the story itself is confusing: The grounds are uncared for, and resemble a prison. Randy goes over the rules, emphasising the "meds," "beds," and "reds," as the security cameras that keep surveillance on all eighty students are known.
Between the surveillance, the restricted communication only one phone call home is allowed per week , and the dress code, which demands students wear all black all the time, Luce doubts that she will ever make it out of her senior year alive. At the end of the tour, Luce meets Arriane , a hyper, semi-crazy girl who takes an interest in her and "adopts" her, showing her around the school and giving her helpful advice, such as staying away from the "hard-cases" who could be identified by the metal bracelets they wore.
Arriane had also told her that the hairstyle she wore made her look extremely pretty and that she wanted one just like that. Being taken by surprise she agrees to fix her her hair, which she thought looked ugly on herself. The only reason why Luce's hair looks like that is because her parents shaved it off and it grew back in the summer but not her usual ringlets of hair.
These bracelets serve to both track the students who wear it, and also deliver incapacitating electric shocks when a student behaves disruptively.
Luce later finds out that underneath her long sleeves, Arriane wears one. Soon she meets Daniel Grigori. From the time they first meet, Luce immediately feels a strong familiar connection with him and is inexplicably attracted to him, though she's never even spoken to him before. She's the only student with access to the school''s data and record files.

Her attachment to the school lay in her father's memory, as he was the school's groundskeeper before his death and was buried at the cemetery within the school grounds. Luce becomes fast friends with Penn when she follows Luce to the bathroom and brings her shampoo to wash out the meatloaf that Molly dumped in her hair, saying that seeing meat all over a vegetarian made her sad.
But she continues to be drawn to him despite his attitude, feeling certain that she has seen him before.
At the same time, Luce is attracted by Cam, the green-eyed boy she met on her first day. Charming and flirtatious, Cam is very kind to her and she is surprised when an innocent friendship seems to take a turn and she starts to fall for Cam as well.
Now she is drawn between the two boys; Daniel, whom she can't even begin to explain her strange attraction for, and Cam, whom she dubs the "good guy she should be with.
It also becomes clear to Luce how Gabbe appears to distract her each time she is with Cam, thoroughly annoying Luce as she is convinced that Gabbe and Daniel are already in a secret relationship. Things start to take a turn when Daniel, even while evidently trying his best to avoid and ignore her, starts treating her in a familiar, kind way that Luce is sure she knows all too well. Even though it is obvious that he is trying to push her away, Luce can't help but try harder to get closer to him.
She feels she needs to know more about Daniel. In an effort to learn more about Daniel, Penn sneaks Luce into the school's record files storage area. They are disappointed by Daniels file, containing only a single sheet of paper with just the barest information,the fact that Daniel got arrested for jaywalking whcih took her by surprise as she could not imagine the attractive Daniel getting arrested for stupidity As Penn and Luce dig deeper into Daniel Grigori's history, they discover a book of fallen angels, written by Daniel Grigori, who they assume must be an ancestor of Daniels.
When they go to retrieve the book from the school library where Penn told Luce she had discovered it, they find it is no longer there. Inexplicably, the shadows come again and the library is suddenly engulfed in fire. Luce loses Penn in the smoke, but finds Todd. Together, they make their escape, guided by a mysterious violet light. Again and again.
The ONE time. I mean it. ONE FUCKING TIME that Luce sticks up to Daniel and tells him not to treat her like an idiot the idiot that she is he kisses her probably just to shut her up - for which I'm eternally grateful then she immediately stops requesting that he treat her like an adult and an equal and he goes right back to muttering cryptic things without explaining them because her puny female mind couldn't possibly comprehend them. She obsessively stalks him, against all odds seeks him out again and again.
Finally, when he DOES tell her the truth, what does she do? She runs away.
That's right. Like a big fucking pansy, it turns out that her puny female mind really CAN'T handle information. I feel like muttering that scene out of anchorman where Ron Burgundy says: "I'm a man who discovered the wheel and built the Eiffel Tower out of metal and brawn. That's what kind of man I am. You're just a woman with a small brain. With a brain a third the size of us. It's science. Need I say more? Crappity crap crap CRAP!
Go to a club and pick up a chick and take her home for "coffee" or to show her your special angel wings. Whatever floats your boat. Don't stick around and interact with her and torture yourself by getting close. Other characters in this book are two-dimensional. If there were such a concept as one-dimensional, I'm sure Kate would have striven to achieve that instead. They are stand in cardboard cut outs and easily forgettable and inconsequential. Your story needs to have an actual story.
Can you read that, Lauren Kate? Something needs to fucking happen! Not just pages of stalking! That's not a fucking story! Nothing is more annoying then reading a book about an Anglican Preacher in the seventeenth century burning witches, when you know perfectly well how very historically inaccurate that is. This author knows nothing about angels. Or the Bible. Or religion.
She shows no concept for the Biblical nature of angels, their real function, how they differ from humans. Kill me now. I felt like putting on my sexy librarian outfit, pulling out my cain hyuk hyuk and giving a very interesting instruction about the Bible in both its modern context and the times in which it is historically acknowledged to be written as well as the spiritual nature or angels and demons and heaven.
Probably would have been a lot more fun than reading this book because I look very sexy in my outfits and I give great feedback to my students! And finally - the last rule that this story broke: 8. Consider what message your story is telling.
Stories have messages and meaning. They teach us and give us a perspective on life.But overall, I'm looking forward to seeing how she develops and deals with the revelations which occur at the end of Fallen. But t was a good read. But most importantly, I think regardless of this book being set up as a series, it should still be able to stand on its own and provide the reader a conclusive ending, with just enough intrigue to whet your appetite for more, not have you looking in the back cover for missing pages.
It is a little slow but something compels you to read on. Later, Luce overhears Daniel and Gabbe suggestively whispering to each other outside, leading Luce to believe that they are in a relationship and making her jealous. And I despise you for that. Oh that's right, he's not a douche bag who wants to control your life. Other characters in this book are two-dimensional.
Also there were too many fillers.
