The Raven BoysAuthor: Maggie Stiefavter
Series: Raven Cycle
Release Date:September 18th,2012
You guys I am so caught on how to start this review. While I did like some aspects there where some parts I just didn’t. While I loved Maggie’s Mercy fall series so I really wanted to like this one really disappointed.
In this book it was just so confusing. I know some people are going to read this review and disagree, but honestly, just at some points I had no clue what was going on. When the Chapters switched back in forth sometimes with no dialogue just description of what they were thinking, it got confusing and then when I realized who it was I had to re-read that part. So it got to be really annoying. Also, blue’s mom and aunt really confused me and I kept getting mixed up when they were talking sometimes.
I really hate having to write this review because of how much I loved Maggie’s writing before. :(
Now while that was what I didn’t really like about it, what I did like was the boys—Adam, Ronan, and Gansey. The only one who really annoyed me sometimes was Adam. I know that I felt really bad for him with the whole dad situation he became really aggravating wanting to get out, but not wanting to accept the help his friend wanted to give him. However, I did like Ronan. Hehe. Ronan is the typical bad boy disguised in a BMW. He and his brother often have conflicts and I like how he grows and really finds some independency to himself in the end.
Overall, I did really like the story. There were some twist and turns and I didn’t really expect them, but the characters and point of view just didn’t work out as well as I’d hoped.
While I am disappointed, I still want to try and give this series another try. Seeing as how I did like the story line, hopefully in the next book the characters will get better and I can follow along better next time. So I can’t wait, I’ll be looking forward to the Raven Cycle #2.
