Reread August 2 to 7, 2015 for fivefavesMaybe of a 3.5 5 stars NOT SURE.Well I still really liked this book, but I m not sure if I can count it in one of my faves any I still really love the story and overall concept they are so unique and wonderful that it s hard NOT to love them However the writing is so SO bad It s something I definitely wouldn t have noticed as much years ago, but it s really bad The character development is definitely lacking as well, and the characters being SO YOUNG aka [...]

This time rereading it I noticed this book is really funny which I havent thought about before.Love the different pov s chapters in this book.If you havent read this trilogy yet you really should It has multiple povs, timetravelling,and lots of twist Love stories that arent forced.
The first half of this book was just like all the other YA paranormals that I ve grown so tired of teenagers in class, passing notes, grumpy teachers, girl boy working together, one with a crush on the other Depressing home lives, parent and sibling issues, blah blah Not a lot actually happens at first, but I could see where it was going and was quickly falling into eye rolling mode, fighting boredom and frustration How many times have I seen these clich s play out by now When I picked this up, [...]
Very adventurous, a definite page turner.It had me wanting after each chapter, i literally could not put this book down.The characters are a fine set all with their own personality.My only complaint is that they were not defined much, as in, i had no idea how they looked like At times Curley would describe a few of their qualities, but not enough to get a strong image If anything, all i got a good image of was when they turned into someone else Arkarian is my favorite character along with the i [...]
I got this from the library when I was about 11 or 12, and took it on holiday with me I remember devouring it and wanting to go home from my holiday, purely so I could read the next one I still love the series now, and re read them every so often They re a quick and easy read, and the story is gripping If you re a fan of history, the books are especially appealing I also liked that one of the main characters shared my name
This book was fantastic The Named is a great time travel book exciting, magical, historical, and had a bit of romance It was a little confusing in places, but overall it was a great page turner that will have you scrambling for the rest of the trilogy.
This book was awesome It involved time travel, drama, and mystery I really enjoy books that aren t predictable I just pulled this off the shelf not expecting much, and would really enjoy reading the others It kept me going and I read it in three days.
Meet BobNow we can tell that Bob is going to work but what is his job He could be a businessman, a lawyer, a clown, an assassin, a secret agent, a doctor, or that might not even be his briefcase at all What about his personality He looks happy in this picture but what if one of his friends just died and he s trying to look happy since that s what his friend wants What if he has an evil plan inside that head of his The thing isWe don t know Bob.That s what I felt like when I read this book.I knew [...]

So I finished the book and I certainly enjoyed the time that I was reading it, but I feel that this only deserves 3 stars because anything higher should be reserved for particularly good work This was candy But the candy tasted a little bitter because with such an intriguiging concept, the execution was a bit of a disappointment There could have been so many interesting theames explored with the idea of how tightly interwoven events in space time are But it often seemed like the timetravel aspec [...]
This book is one of the best books you ll ever read I just finished the second one, The Dark, and it was even better than the first if that s possible Anyway, I am off to read the third and I highly recommend this to everyone, especially fans of sci fi, mystery, fiction and fantasy.
I was really excited about this book got such a high rating and seemed like such a fantastic premise Maybe that s why it seemed to fall short Ethan is a Guardian of Time he travels to the past in order to keep evil denizens from the Order of Chaos from changing it, thus affecting the future Of course Ethan s only a teenager, but he s already very good at what he does So the Guard decides to test him by giving him the willful Isabel as his new apprentice But Isabel s initiation brings a whole hos [...]
This book is the literary equivalent of Chinese food You really enjoy it sometimes, you share it with friends who enjoy it too, and an hour later you forget it because it didn t really satisfy you in some fundamental way The better attributes of the book are the greater than average number of ideas included in the plot and the fantasy elements Interesting choices of destinations in time and historical figures to meet not the obvious choices set the book apart right away Then the description of t [...]
Once again Marianne Curley had me from hello This book starts out with a bang and ends pretty much the same way I was glued to the book and didn t want to put it down.The main character Ethan is my favorite Isabelle runs a close second but Ethan is who stole my heart I love the time travel Going back in time to make sure all goes as planned It s a great and different concept that was a nice break from vampires, werewolves and all other supernatural reads.I already have The Dark so I m looking fo [...]
4 cups of tea read This was a fun book that kept me reading.Ethan can travel back in time and has been trained since he was 4 Now he is being given an apprentice and has few weeks train her, this leads to a fun fast paced story,At first I found the perspective a bit hard to get used to but by page 50 i was used to it and i am glad i stuck it out I did feel that the characters and the world could have been built up abit view spoiler i found ethans and isabels back stories to be so sad and upsett [...]
I can not put this series down It is so interesting The characters are real and I love the story I am always on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens next I like that you get to see into two charcters minds It is such a great book Easy to understand and fun to figure out.
Pens que este libro me iba a encantar y que la historia seria super interesante ya que era una recomendaci n que llego a mi pero la verdad es que me aburr a mares y lo nico que hice con el fue cabecear.y es que no se que paso, tiene muchos de los elementos que me suelen gustar en las historias pero aveces se me hacia tan obvio y predecible que bahhh simpatice con los personajes ni con su trama lastimosamente.

Great book Well structured Loveable characters Interesting book Best book ever read this year Immediately reading the next one in series 3 3 3
I will have to say that I was pretty disappointed with this book The back cover promised to portray a story of excitement and romance which was quite misleading The premise of the story was excellent, but the delivery was flat The characters are not fully developed and the connections between characters are also not explored to satisfaction Time travel isn t real, and the author did a good job of remind me of that while reading None of it seemed to transcend reality the characters, plot, events, [...]
It was a bit odd at first i felt rushed into the whole excitement and worried that it would get worse The beginning was off putting but it quickly saved itself The beginning was quite predictable but once i felt like i knew the whole book it flipped in a matter of seconds It has a great story and i m excited to see what else will be done with the idea I do love how everything is far from perfect and characters are tested and its just all really great I hope it only gets better from hereI m comin [...]
Intriguing plot Brilliant ideas of a new world An ending somewhat satisfied BUT The world building is lacking The explanation on time, on the 2nd world and on how things come to be is not very well done We get to know things on the surface,and I hate that I like to know everything there is to know and The character s development is also lacking for lots of characters So far, Ethan the main boy is the only one I like, mostly because his actions made senses The rest, they aren t really relateable [...]
I liked the concept, and the historical element was fun The characters were interesting, and I especially liked Arkarian, Isabel and Ethan, in that order.However, I felt the prose seemed to be aimed at a younger audience, and it would go from being very simplistic to extremely intricate plot devices at the drop of a hat The imagery was good, but sometimes I felt lost rather than in the moment Also, everyone has a soul mate, and they re all conveniently going to find each other Hmm.I just wasn t [...]
This is a YA book, first of 3, even though it seems there should be one before it Its about boy who witnessed his sisters abduction by a monster, who turns out to be his father s partner turned rouge in a group called Gaurdian of Time A group of people with supernatural abilities fight against the evil goddess who wants to change history so she can rule the world I really liked this book, it was entertaining and kept me in suspense, even the sappy romantic stuff in it Very well written and I loo [...]
This book was just okay for me The basic premise guarding history through going back in time and thwarting attempts to change it was interesting, but the motives of those seeking to change history were not believable, and the characters seemed superficial Absent of any surprises and turns, the plot was predictable All in all it was a pleasant read but that is similar to labeling one s new hairstyle different or interesting.
All in all it was pretty good, but the ending was confusing and it didn t answer the right questions that I had asked Also it was pretty slow getting going too, it didn t start into action until almost 1 4 of the way through It didn t catch my attention very well But it did have some good portions in the middle and towards the end, it was alright.
