To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Le titre dit tout: ce deuxième tome est très sympathique et se penche sur mon personnage préféré du tome 1: Rev. Malheurseument, j'ai été moyennement emballée par le personnage féminin et par la romance et ce qui a sauvé le livre à mes yeux sont les magnifiques passages dédiés à la relation de Rev avec sa famille adoptive, son meilleur ami et à son passé douloureux. Le premier tome reste tout de même bien mieux à mes yeux.
I loved Letters to the Lost and was so looking forward to Rev's story, but this was a disappointment. This book is far too heavy on dialogue, mainly via texts, e-mails and phone calls. I spent the whole first half just waiting for something interesting to happen. Rev and his problems created some excitement toward the end, and I still love Declan, but Emma? Not so much. She was way too self-absorbed to be likeable.
This story focuses largely on dangers lurking on the Internet for unwary teens, so it's valuable in that regard. I'm not sure why the author tossed in a page about sexism and misogyny in the "man's world," as if we need a reminder with the whole "Me Too" movement going on.
One quote will stick with me: "The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall." And yes, that's where Rev got his name. I did like the way Rev's relationship with his horrible natural father was resolved, and the way Declan connected with his father. Nicely done.
