WOWZA !!! Those five lines by Carina round is the perfect description to what 'The Many lives of Avery Snow' was all about for me . Ghosh , the story and the characters in this book were MASSIVE !! I loved every character , even the bad one's .. STRANGE ME HUH ?!! . So lets get on with this review before i forget what i have to actually talk about !!
The Many lives of Avery Snow is the story of Avery , a girl who's been through a lot of pain , agony and loss in life as a little girl . And whats worse is that her life has'nt gotten any better as an adult . Strange things have started happening lately . Strange dreams , insomnia , feeling of Deja vu and cold sweat . To make matters even more weirder , two really hot guys . Just imagine the blood rush that is felt when you cant seem to decide what or should i say who is it that your heart wants . What if its both because they both are important in a way that one can truly understand only by reading this book . What is going on with Avery ? Will she ever understand the things that she will be witnessing ? Who will she choose ? What does destiny has in store for her ? Will she be able to learn from her past and not make the same mistakes again , or would she succumb to her hearts desire and change the course of events ?? The answer to all these questions lie in this journey extraordinaire , that is the many lives of Avery Snow .
Cover- speak : Beautiful cover , very very pretty to look at . It describes the base and the foundation of the story in a very unique . When i looked at it , i was like , "wow , is'nt that very thought provoking ? " I absolutely loved it . Its serene and at the same time it gives you a feeling of loneliness , pain and sorrow . ( Maybe thats just how i saw it )
Things i really loved about this book :
1) Christy Sloat's writing style : I'm not a huge fan of authors who love beating around the bushes with concepts and ideas and theories . They make simple things look so damn complicated , to read them is almost as tiring as climbing a mountain . Not only that , they slow down the flow of the story , thus making the reader lose interest in the story . But Christy's writng is quick and perky ( Geez , i dont even know if its the right word to use here , but i felt it would describe how i feel about it ) . Anyways , what i really admired about her style was that her explaination of whats going on in the story is so simple , that it doesnt take a long time to figure out what she is actually trying to convey . Also the language is pretty simple ans easy to follow , in other words YOU DONT NEED TO SIT WITH A DICTIONARY
. I mean i dont mind learning new words and meanings and all but sometimes it just gets too much to handle - really frustrating !! I also loved how she kept the flow of the story going on , not wasting too much time on just one thing . Theres so much happening that the reader is sucked into the story immediately . Also there were some pretty interesting twists and turns that i didnt expect . In short i love Christy's writing style , i'm a fan from here on !!!
2)Chain of events : Right from page 1 i was hooked onto what i was reading . I was trying to anticipate the turn of events and how the author would use the concept of "REINCARNATION" in the story . Like i said earlier , i loved the pace at which the story was progressing . Just when you thought you cant understand whats going on , it felt the author mind read your confusion and manages to answer it with ease .
3)Characters : I dont know if i liked Avery or not ! I mean , she really is not one of those MC that has a problem with accepting what nature has in store for her or what her life is all about . But i just dont see her as my fav MC , probably because of the way she treats one of the male characters * Clears throat * a certain Landon !! Speaking of whom , i just loved Landon's character . I would totally say this without shame , If definitely want a boyfriend/husband like him .. Ohh the things he does and has done for Avery , i cant even explain . As a reader i could feel his anguish , his sorrows , his need and love for Avery that travels across generations , dimensions and timelines ... What love , it bought tears to my eyes !! And thirdly , the other important male character Dallas , Avery's love interest . I dont hate him or dislike him or anything , but he is'nt Landon . Enough said . There are other certain other iportant characters too without whom the story would definitely be incomplete .
NOW to the messy part , things i didnt like : Just one thing , the ending !! *Dont get all panicky here , let me explain* . When you are reading the story , the end just zaps your heart making you go , "Oh come on . what the hell ? " , thats how i reacted . But then i thought , wait you dont have to disheartened !! The book ai'nt over yet , its a trilogy so we are sure to expect twists ans turns as we move along . That statement right there has given me hope that i might just see what i want to see . I know i sound all cryptic , but you will have to read the book to understand what i'm talking about .
The Many lives of Avery Snow was definitely and most absolutely a heart warming story . The emotions in this story are truly playing the right nores making you sing your heart out . Recommended to everyone who wants to escape from the clutches of Vampires , werewolves and all the usualness of what we read normally . You would not be disappointed , its definitely worth the shot !!
