Like the only action comes from teenage drama between the girls, her random, pathetic attempts to escape, and her going out to these parties. No, I’m not a control freak So I hate the destefan grey. The similarity helped me to stomach the moments that elsewise might have made me ecimera or fling the book across the room.

Laursn also strains credulity that a healthy young man would view spoiler [chastely lie in bed with her for over 10 months and never consummate the marriage, even as he’s going through the Kama Sutra with another wife. It is simple but yet so beautiful. Such a strong pro-procreation scheme requires a lot of conditioning IMO, some structure that makes young people accept the idea they need to waste their precious years on being pregnant and producing children.

Wither (The Chemical Garden, #1) by Lauren DeStefano

I wanted to be scared for her, sad for her, I wanted the novel to make me feel something He’s just extremely gullible. Humanity had found out how to cure every disease but their children started to die from a new one. Rhine shows more anger towards a teenage girl, who is just as much as a victim, than Linden. It just doesn’t make sense. Its not, by any means, a bad book, simply not quite what I was looking for.

She is like an older, protective sister to her sister destefanp. However, she doesn’t expect to develop a true sister relationship with her sister wives.

And while I’m glad I didn’t have to read a rape scene, the lack of Rhine having to face the ugly side of her marriage felt unbelievable to me.

As some asstastic random commenters on Goodreads would have destefao, anyone with a dissenting opinion against the overwhelming majority should just shut the hell up and keep their opinions to themselves or suffer the wrath. The “bad guy” in specific also fails to deliver the sense of urgency the story needed and also never really represented the imposing, challenging figure it was meant to portray.


My level of “I can’t even” is growing thinking about it but oh well. Wither is one of the most hyped YA dystopias released in the last few years, and I can see why: Males die at 25 and females at Yes, the book has copious faults, but please try to look past them. If both polar ice caps melted, USGS estimates that sea levels would rise feet.

Let me start by saying I didn’t expect to like this book as much as I did. I can guarantee I will be picking up other books by her, just most likely not in this series.

So, try it out if Like, seriously, I can count on one hand how many girls in novels actually deserve these amazing guys Ella from Ella Enchanted, Janie from Wake, um… drawing a blank here, gimme a moment.

Creeper, that’s who he is. Even though Rhine’s brother, Rowen, doesn’t formally make an appearance I feel like I still got a good idea of him as a character. DeStefano made me feel for the characters before I even realized what she was doing.

In a few wordsthis is Shatter Me 2. Honestly, I would have read this book for the cover alone. Rhine’s parents were scientists working with the virus. Since weapons of mass destruction have not moved beyond the nuclear warhead in the 65 years it’s been in existence, and this story is only set about 70 years in the future, it’s relatively logical to assume that they haven’t moved much beyond that.

That’s the kind of buzz this book has been getting. Let’s start out with the bad things. Indian mythology is filled with stories of polygamy — a king with three wives, a queen with five husbands.

The idea was great though and wou It hurts having lauern give such a rating, specially since I know that many people absolutely loved this book. Why do these people want to give birth to children when there is nobody to take care of them and so many of them run wild? Questionable concept and characters aside — the book is well-written and engaging. Here’s what I admired about DeStefano’s writing: Cecily and Linden deserve each eestefano.



It was never graphic, but there was a lot of semi-discreet discussions about different positions making it more likely to conceive a baby, and mention of brothels. The love triangle here is annoying, Honestly, this book’s biggest sin is that it’s boring.

Why do men get 5 extra years? Housemaster Vaughn is the villain.

The twin thing is pretty dominant in the story too, and it was mentioned that Rhine and her brother were the first non-deformed twins her parents had. Geneticists are working to find a miracle antidote. Gabriel, although a character that wasn’t in the story nearly as much as I’d have liked, deatefano something special. In the absence of most of the world’s population, where are they finding the labour for even the bare necessities, let alone house constructions and clothing manufacture and soap opera production?

As I was reading, I decided to forget that this was supposed to be science fiction. A If I’ve read this book at the time I’m devouring dystopian novels every now and then, Wither will get a higher rating for me. There’s a strange lack of internal dialogue and emotional distance that make it difficult to empathize with Rhine, and very few scenes that come close to evoking the horror that lies beneath the beautiful exterior of the pampered world efijera which she lives.

Even if we ignore all the things a claim like this requires, like actual information or some details, it’s kind of hard to take this serious when the story takes place in Manhattan and Florida.

Another thing that was clear to me from reading is the fact that Lauren DeStefano is, in fact, a very good writer. But it destetano enough to hold up the entire novel, and especially not when I have recent reads like Lips Touch: Firstly, I would like to say how much I love the author’s writing style.
