I hate Meg Cabot.
she is a terrible writer. she doesn't write sentences, she writes fragments and then puts more fragments at the end to clear up what was perfectly clear in the first place. she leaves out things that are important. she doesn't describe stuff. her prose stinks. how on EARTH she became a best selling and popular author, i have no idea.
i read the first book of her series here, "When Lightning Strikes," and seriously had to read the others. i still haven't read the last book, my library doesn't have it in right now, but this book got me hooked to a story that was written by (excuse me) a sucky writer. it was wild, weird, crazy, funny, and had some very creative twists in it. great story.
now if only she could learn to write.
sentences, i mean. (<-- example of what she does. i swear i don't write like that normally.)
would i recommend this book? no. absolutely not. I'd recommend not reading it because the writing was terrible. in fact, I'd probably tell everyone who would listen not to read anything by Meg Cabot because she can’t write. published author vs. writer= big difference.
sorry about that rant. it just had to come out. like I've said before. with me it’s not fluffy review. you get the good, the bad, and the ugly.
this is the ugly.
until next time (and a next and better book,)
