[ Read Online Leaving Paradise ï number-theory PDF ] by Simone Elkeles Á Somashed potatoes That s what this book is Mashed potatoes Tastes kinda good, relatively harmless and easy to digest, but nothing spectacular Sort of bland, but occasionally satisfies a particular craving Mashed potatoes Yes Not the real, red skinned taters mashed potatoes, we re talking good old boxed taters Premise was good, but it was kind of slow It seemed to take forever for Maggie and Caleb to see each other again, but once they did, it was like instant love.
which just didn t settle well with me I also generally dislike it when female authors try to speak through a male protagonist.
it almost never comes across as genuine Caleb s POV sounded suspiciously feminine and that made his macho persona a bit cheesy I can see why a lot of teen girls love this, however Ms Elkeles isn t a half bad writer and there are some good lessons to be learned It s just that, when you g Before I reveal why I m only giving this one 2.
5 stars, let s go over what I liked The writing I d have to say that was my favorite part of this novel Just like with Elkeles Perfect Chemistry series, it was spectacular She always knows how to depict teens as they really are She doesn t choose to sugarcoat their amorous feelings or leave out curse words to make her novels teen friendly I love that because, for me, it s better to be realistic than to make prudes happy.
The characters I don t think that I felt as big of a connection as I would have liked They were good, certainly better than a lot of characters I ve read about, but not as good as with her other novels.
Which brings me to the reason for my rating The pacing Just didn t work for me Everything just felt too rushed Each chapter is very short, with each chapter switching POVs between Ca 4 Stars Loved this Can t wait for the second book, Return to Paradise, coming out in September 2010, as the story is not over yet Longer review to follow later Almost half a year later.
my review 4.
5 Stars I m finally writing my review after my re reading of Leaving Paradise just prior to reading the sequel, Return to Paradise.
Earlier this year I read Perfect Chemistry by this author, and absolutely LOVED it and Alex and Brittany Alex is one of my fave YA heroes So sigh swoon sworthy.
While I enjoyed and loved Leaving Paradise and Caleb and Maggie, too, I didn t love it quite much as Perfect Chemistry and hence the 4 Stars Though, reading this the second time around and being thoroughly drawn in again, I am going to bump it up to 4.
5 Stars, though recognising Ms Elkeles growth as a writer in Perfect Chemistry Leaving Paradise is the story of two teens whose lives and
5 stars I am totes not on the bandwagon for this book.
Was this book bad No, not at all I think this author has some talent and I liked the shifting POVs The story actually seemed vaguely familiar to me but I liked the concept behind it I would most definitely read by this author in the future However, a few things about this book really rubbed me the wrong way.
1 I think that Maggie s reactions are totally unrealistic If a boy hit me with his car and PERMANENTLY MAIMED ME I would be crazy, insane style mad at him I wanted angsty scenes full of F you s and F you and your mother to the end of the world She should be downright vitriolic Spitting poison at his face snake style Instead, Maggie barely calls Caleb on anything She acts all meek and then falls back in lo 6 10 Dear Caleb Becker, While reading
I had high expectations when it came to this book based on all the reviews I read and was only left disappointed The book had a great plot but I didn t like the way it was written, felt very rushed and unrealistic I have mixed feeling on the main characters I liked them but was very easily annoyed with them This book was okay and overall I did enjoy it but could have been much better.
Opening LineI d been waiting a year for this moment 4.
5 I don t generally read much YA stuff but Caleb and Maggie s forbidden coming of age romance got to me and I found myself quite wrapped up in all their teenaged angst I guess it was the unique story idea that first piqued my interest that of a romance developing between the offender and his victim was too good to pass up And once you get into it the reasoning s as to why they get together it felt realistic I mean they ve both been away for a year and things have changed, they ve changed and none of their friends get them any Throw in some majorly screwed up family members, a big secret and super cool old lady and you ve got yourselves a great story.
Told with alternating POV s for each chapter, this was a fast read and I enjoyed getting into both Maggie and Caleb s heads, seeing what each of them thought of the s Nothing Has Been The Same Since Caleb Becker Left A Party Drunk, Got Behind The Wheel, And Hit Maggie Armstrong Even After Months Of Painful Physical Therapy, Maggie Walks With A Limp Her Social Life Is Nil And A Scholarship To Study Abroad Her Chance To Escape Everyone And Their Pitying Stares Has Been CanceledAfter A Year In Juvenile Jail, Caleb S Free If Freedom Means Endless Nagging From A Transition Coach And The Prying Eyes Of The Entire Town Coming Home Should Feel Good, But His Family And Ex Girlfriend Seem Like StrangersCaleb And Maggie Are Outsiders, Pigeon Holed As Criminal And Freak Then The Truth Emerges About What Really Happened The Night Of The Accident And, Once Again, Everything Changes It S A Bleak And Tortuous Journey For Caleb And Maggie, Yet They End Up Finding Comfort And Strength From A Surprising Each Other Definitely one of the best YA love stories that I have ever read XD THIS BOOK WAS SO FREAKING AMAZING I loved every second of Leaving Paradise WELL, except for the cliffhanger you call an ending because I can t accept that I need and want I need to find the second book as soon as possible because I NEED and WANT Now I m not going to indulge in spoilers or any of that crap because you all need to drop whatever you are doing and go read this book Unless you are in the middle of REALLY good book then proceed with reading and get this book after you re done Other than that go get this book I want people to cry while reading this book because I definitely had some tears falling At the end of the book I swear I totally promise that s the truth Other than crying, you will scream, cheer, ship, swoon, and then cry some Make sure you have tissues and happy stuff i.
