Conhecimento Comum



I'm not sure what happened with this third book. I really liked the first two but this one just dragged until the last third. I read the first two and listened to this one so maybe it was that I couldn't skim the less interesting part. Whatever the reason, I did not find this one as entertaining as the first two in the series!

Ok, I’ll be honest. I actually didn’t want to like this book. I wanted it to be a Twilight clone, with an annoying bossy vampire and a characterless lady protagonist. And in some ways, it is.

I did get annoyed with Matthew being being a big bossy bully, and with him being impossibly handsome and attractive all the time. I did get annoyed with everyone treating Diana like a helpless kid and she just leaning back and letting people bathe her and feed her and whatever.

I did not learn anything useful from this book, I did not change, it never profoundly moved me in any way. But still I read it, and kept reading it, laughing at the more humorous parts, shaking my head at the annoying parts, picking it up whenever I was free to.

I also started reading the second book in the series as soon as I finished this. So yeah. What can I say, apparently I do like it. Quite a lot.

Some parts of this really dragged for me (hence why it took me 10 days to read it) but I loved the story as a whole.
