It’s kind of the point. I loved the idea of a book that’s half set in the YA publishing world, with bloggers and agents and editors and ARCs and signings and tours, and in the weterfeld, it worked well enough. A main character commits premeditated murder and her only consequence is that she loses her boyfriend for a while. The book was preachy. Imogen is all like “I like you.

She falls in love. I really liked this book. I think he’s making a legitimate criticism about the over-sensitivity some seem to have about flipping everythingand how hypocritical it is that Darcy westerfled appropriate, but others cannot, just because of their skin color.

Will the book still make sense if I don’t read the whole ‘Afterworlds’ part of the book? But she’s not failing, she’s hitting one streak of awesome luck after another.

The majority westedfeld the reviews for Afterworlds are positive and applaud Westerfeld for representing the passion of reading and writing in Darcy. All the writers, as I mentioned, are two-dimensional and self-absorbed.

Oct 30, Kyla Harris rated it it was ok Shelves: The 1st author tells a short story with a cliffhanging ending to emphasize that he thinks plot is most important.


Told in alternating chapters is Darcy’s novel, a suspenseful thriller about Lizzie, a teen who slips into the Afterworld to survive a terrorist attack. She never really seems to have anything bad happen because of her poor money management.

At times it seemed like a satire actually, whether it was intentional or not on Scott Westerfeld’s afterwoflds. Eighteen year old making super bad decisions!

Is there a personality in there? I’m not a big fan of paranormal romance books.


Must redeem within 90 days. I’ve read it now. The fact that I hated the paranormal story weakened the book overall Really disliking the paranormal “story within the story” made me like the “YA author” story even less.

And initially, it was. It was so fascinating and even a little scary to see what authors may go through. I loved reading about the “YA drink night” she was invited to, receiving the notes from her editor, being on deadline. In hindsight, I kind of wish that would have been the whole book.

The other story line is the actual book that Darcy wrote. I felt like the author was trying to push his views onto young readers. Despite her worries and her writer’s block, her book is still getting great buzz. I found this book disappointing. I found some fail as a scott, too. Unfortunately, the way it is, it fell into the exact pit traps it unconsciously or not? If it’s one, I’m not sure that many people will realise it, unfortunately and especially not younger readers—not because they’re young, just because westsrfeld may not have the necessary reading background to see the critique I mentioned.

I’m not overly familiar with the publishing and writing world. And even more so, I was disappointed to find that half the book was both boring as shit and completely unnecessary. This may not be his best work, and the novel may afterwrolds a little fluffy but there is so much more to it.


However, just to confuse things, that ‘story within the story’ is also called Afterworlds. He pokes fun at his own readers, for crying out loud. Plenty of other reasons for that.

The amount of hard work they put in, the problems they may come across and those bits broke my heart. I’ve never met a Scott Westerfeld novel I didn’t like. The main story revolves around Darcy. So in that sense, I suppose I should say it did, in the end, work for me.

I live here and I don’t get this and falls in love with aftedworlds YA writer.

Now, Imogen said girlfriend is 23 and has had previous girlfriends. He’s one of my favorite authors in the world and I recommend his books to people constantly. Not going to elaborate but think psychopomps, a little bit of hindu myth and the afterworlds.

Now, Afterworlds didn’t have nearly as much exposure, but I loved it westsrfeld lot better. So naturally, I was excited for this book and I was ecstatic to receive an ARC——but honestly, it didn’t live u After reading: And different and weird and I really did enjoy it.
