I m trying to figure out how the author who gave us Suze Simons and Ellie Harrison plus their respective awesome male love interests turned around and put out this absolute horror show of a paranormal romance Seriously, what the hell happened, Meg Cabot Did I just grow out of you or are you selling out Underworld, the sequel to Cabot s lackluster re imagining of the Hades Persephone myth Abandon, is the first Meg Cabot book I ever had to urge to throw against the wall and never pick up again It [...]
FINAL RATING 4.20 STARS CATCHALLIf I really liked Abandon, I beyond adored Underworld It was so much better than its predecessor in every way possible I loved every minute of it and it left me absolutely breathless when I was finished It was incredible and shows that a series, no matter how experienced the author, can only get betterE HEROINEPIERCEI didn t dislike Pierce as much in this book as I had in previous books I better understood the motivations behind her actions and especially related [...]
You call that a plot I call that chapter six Abandon was a series of constant flash backs that didn t further the plot Underworld was a constant reiteration of the present that did nothing to further the plot, which was full of holes, anyway.Pierce somehow got too stupid to live syndrome and John thought she knew, everything about being Queen of the Underworld when only twenty four hours have passed in Underworld, and six days passed in Abandon Basically, was it any better than Abandon No Do I h [...]
They say never to judge a book by its cover THEY LIE These are the steps to picking an awesome book like this one 1 Is the cover good 2 Is the title cool 3 read the back or flap, is it cool
I have this habit of reading books that are really bad then complaining about them and continuing to read them This is one of those books I wasn t fond of the first book but this took the cake Or not the cake It doesn t deserve cake But in all seriousness I really hated this book.1 Pierce I hated Pierce Sure the rambling in characters is cute at times not in this book but others but she does it SO much and talks about so many unnecessary things and it gets annoying and I want to hit her over the [...]
3.5 stars.Review to come Read an excerpt of Underworld chapter 1 2 here Btw, what is with the summary Her captor That makes John seem so creepy.
Unfortunately, Underworld just didn t hold my attention and I found myself not wanting to read it any
2.5 disappointed stars Pierce was seriously acting dumb in this one while Alex turned just plaincrazy.The only reason I gave this book an extra star for the revilement ofJohn s past.This book was such a drag.Honestly It felt like Meg cabothad actually meant to write this series as one whole book, before finally deciding to go against it and published it as 3 elaborately unnecessary partsat made up this trilogy PREALLLY hope book 3 will make up for all this dissapointment
WHY WHY WHY 2012 I read the first book to the end, see that Underworld is the next book, read the blurb, then what do I see at the bottom 2012 Why why why why why
This book can t come out soon enough This series is going to be like an addiction I may not love it but I must have it After reading I love meg Cabot I am so intrigued by all of her books I like the love story in this book but there is only one thing in this book I would criticize That would be the rudeness of Alex, pierce s cousin After how rude he has been throughout the entire series I fail to see how they have developed such a deep connectiond even if we are going off the fact that she is a [...]
sigh Disappointing The first book was okay, even though my opinion of it has sort of changed since I read it But this book was justh It was like a filler book than a good sequel The plot focused mainly on Pierce s family s past and their issues I really dislike it when some authors do this because it feels like they re taking the focus away from the real problem It s not like I don t care or anything, but the reason I m reading this book isn t because of the family issues Her family s past was [...]
To be honest, I got to page 25 35 Let me tell you what I found and why I had to stop reading.This book is a clear example of 7th grade writing It made my eye start to tick picture eye tick here It is an example, that I shall use in class, of telling instead of showing, which I plead with students not to do with exemplar texts Paul Fleishman s Seedfolks and a new book called Croak brilliant word choice and examples and lessons up the wah hoo Word choice Check it out Yawn And check this out, page [...]
This series is just so bad that it s good I love greek mythology books, and although this version of it hurts my head sometimes, it s my guilty pleasure.SPOILERS FOR THE PREVIOUS BOOKPierce is still as stupid as ever Take a look at the passage below Do you see it Mr Smith demanded, tapping the paper.Farther down, in letters almost as large, was a headline about Jade s murder There was no photo of my uncle Chris, but I knew he was the local man who d been picked up for questioning, thanks to a ti [...]
Appears on lilyparadis Let s face it, I m in love with Meg Cabot.For as long as I can remember, she s been my literary idol I spent my early teenage years on her message boards, chatting with her other fans, waiting for new books, and trying to be just like Meg I think I ve had this post bookmarked for an obscene amount of time, because somehow I was convinced that reading it would automatically help me write a book.I think I first found out about her because of the Princess Diaries movies You k [...]
I feel like this is blasphemy, me giving Meg Cabot an okay book review Every time I read one of her books, I can t put them down This time I just couldn t get into it First off, Pierce pissed me off She was constantly crying and jumping to conclusions that would ultimately be wrong and make her look like an idiot Not to mention that she COMPLETELY seems to forget that she is in danger For example, Pierce has a necklace that will tell her when Furies are near it will turn black Throughout the boo [...]
A huge THANK YOU to Around The World ARC Tours for allowing me to read Underworld I have to say with each new story I read about Hades and Persephone I fall in love with them all over again With Underworld this is no different because Meg has spun such a story that it knocked me off my feet right from Abandoned.Pierce is being held in The Underworld by John for own safety The only thing is she does not feel that way and she is worried about her family She knows the furies are after her and she d [...]
I did not enjoy the first person narrative style.Some books are so good that I m ok with first person, but this book was not special enough to overcome that I read the first 57 pages and the ending The story is to be continued in the sequel That frustrated me I want complete stories.This book is a retelling of the myth about Persephone living in the Underworld and married to Hades In this story Pierce is a 17 year old high school girl who is living in the underworld with John Hayden a 19 year ol [...]
2.5 starsFirst, I wanna say that I will be reading the next book I wasn t all that impressed with Underworld, but sigh it s a trilogyd I m now than halfway done with it.Pierce, the intrepid heroine of this story, is kind of idiotic I don t understand the attraction between her and John, aka a death deity No, he s not the Death Deityjust one of the many, evidently So, he s not Hades or Lord of the Underworld, he s just in charge of his area Sounds interesting than it really is, I guess So far, [...]
2012 lots of things im waiting for are coming 2012 what a busy year im gonna be piled with new books ive been desperately waiting for to come out
I think I loved this as much as I loved Abandon I love Pierce s fiery personality and her friend Kayla I can t wait for the next one
I love Meg Cabot s writing Love, love, love Her books are clever and funny, and her leading heroines are sympathetic and, if not always the smartest cookie in the box, at least they are likeable and able to catch one or two clues.Which is why it is so disappointing to read UNDERWORLD.I admit I haven t read ABANDON, the first book in the series when it came out I was on a book budget and I never did go back and find it But I was thrilled beyond belief to receive UNDERWORLD in my RT welcome bag I [...]
Also Found On A Book and A RecordAfter reading Abandon, I really didn t know if I had it in me to continue on with the series But, they re not that many pages and I read pretty fast so I thought what the heck, might as well and unfortunately, I wasn t too impressed I should have known, right Underworld picks up exactly where Abandon left off It was a worthy sequel in that it didn t really feel like a sequel Pierce is still kind of a whiner, and manipulates John into doing whatever she wants Alth [...]
Originally posted at The Teen Book GuruThe myth of Persephone has always enthralled me and is one of my absolute favorite Greek myths, so when I found out that one of my favorite authors, Meg Cabot, who I LOVE to death heehee no pun intended , was writing a re telling of it, I knew I was going to be in for a treat So it was no surprise that Abandon, the first book in the trilogy had me jumping up and down and smiling like a lunatic as soon as I finished it And Underworld left me feeling the exac [...]
I really didn t like this book Sorry.
Underworldest le second livre dans la trilogie Abandon de Meg Cabot Pierce Oliviera est retenue dans cet entre deux entre enfer et paradis, ou les mes des morts attendent de conna tre leur sort Celui qui l y a emmen e, John Hayden, a beau assurer que c est pour sa s ret , Pierce tient revenir sur terre, ou tout du moins dire au revoir ce qu elle connaissait Mais les furies la cherchent toujours, et elle n en sera jamais l abri Underworld tait un livre tr s agr able lire, autant que Abandon, le p [...]
I am highly disappointed in this second installment Compared to the 1st book, which I thought was quite good, it felt as though I was not even reading about the same characters that I met in book 1 The Teaser you read on the back of this book, is just that a teaser.It s like you ve been shown previews that you are not going to see in the actual movie I will tell you what I dislike about this book.1 EVERYONE IN THIS BOOK WERE ACTING LIKE COMPLETE IDIOTS with the exception of John Which even then, [...]
To See Full Review Click Here yalbookbriefs 201Underworld is a definite improvement from Abandon which is a good thing which isn t saying Abandon is a bad book because it isn t, but Underworld the story really does pick up The action scenes in this book were excellent It might not be the best book for younger Cabot fans to read, but older teens and adults will appreciate these sequences Pierce and John are also developed in the sequel Although, sometimes Pierce s naivety about some things rubbe [...]
3.5 stars, rounded up.After being attacked by her grandmother, who is possessed by a Fury, Pierce Olivier is whisked away to the Underworld by its ruler, John Hayden Only she s not dead Yet John claims that he s keeping her in the Underworld to keep her safe, and she wants to believe him She feels protected in his arms, in the Underworld But when her cell phone starts depicting an image of her cousin in danger, she risks everything to make sure he s okay But she must constantly be on alert the l [...]
I love Greek mythology retellings, especially the various Hades and Persephone versions that have been so popular in the YA market the past year ABANDON by Meg Cabot was one of my favorites so I was eager to see where she took her reimagining in the sequel, UNDERWORLD And to be honest, I enjoyed this one even than the first.It s hard to talk about second books in reviews in case anyone missed the first, so I will try to leave out particular plot points But what I can say is how pleasantly surpr [...]
Wtf Did I just read, seriously WTFI don t rightly know what it was but I do feel like I lost a few I.Q points while reading it My brain has melted and poured out of my ears and pooled at my feet I didn t really care much for any of the characters in this book, John, he had his moments but he was a bit to creepy stalker for me, he had this crazy way of thinking all the bad selfish things he was forcing upon Pierce was all for the greater good and that she should thank him for it and Pierce, don t [...]
