Book Review: Fallen - Lauren Kate

Some angels are destined to fall.
Instant. Intense. Weirdly familiar...
The moment Luce looks at Daniel she knows she has never felt life this before. Except she can't shake the feeling that she has...  and with him - a boy she doesn't remember ever setting eyes on. 
Will her attempt to find out why enlighten her - or destroy her? - From the back of the book.


Fallen is the first book in a series by Lauren Kate. Everyone is going on and on about how it's really amazing. But, I have to say, I didn't like it. I don't know why this is, maybe because I couldn't get into it, or because I couldn't be bothered to read it at the time, I don't know. I just didn't like it.

Luce Price, the main character, is very annoying. She comes across as stupid, yet apparently she's super smart, according to her grades. She stalks people, and is in a reform school.

This reform school, is very laid back. There is very little security, and though I've never been to one, or know much about them, I would have thought there would be a lot more security. I mean, the kids have to have been put there for a reason, because they're a danger to themselves and/or the people around them, so why is there very little security? I don't know...

Anyway, rant over. Daniel Grigori is the boy that everyone wants. He's obviously the Edward of this book. When he flips off Bella Luce, what does she do? She becomes obsessed with him. OK, so he obviously hates you, so why go falling in love with him?... And she even goes as far as to break into the school records room to find out more about him. She can't just talk to him, she has to go and read through private records...

After all I've said though, I am going to be reading the next book in the series. Not much happened in the first 400 pages of the 452 pages in the book, but in the last 52, there was actually a little bit of actual plot, and it sort of interested me. I just hope that the second one, Torment, will be a lot better, and that I won't be disappointed, like I was with Fallen.

I give it 3 Feet!

  1. I agree with you about Luce. She just wasn't convincing, and although the lovey-dovey stuff had an explanation that defied logic (ie, why she got obsessed with a boy who showed contempt towards her = because they were "destined to be together") it just didn't work. Grrr.

*I am no longer accepting blog awards :( I do not have time to go through all the things that come with it, and though I'm honoured you thought of me, I'm sure you can find someone who will love it, and be able to carry out the rules :)
