Tamam. Stephen King'in itial bir fikri olduğunu hissettim - hiç bir yere gitmedi. King'in bu fikirle ne yapacağını görmek isterim. Bu kitabı fab yapmış olabilir! Kolay olsa oku ve sonunda ne olduğunu görmek istedim.

Olağanüstü. Hepsi ilişki kurabileceğiniz karmaşık, çok boyutlu karakterlerle dolu. 1830'ların İngiltere'sine büyüleyici bakışlar ... Dönem siyaseti, Reform yasası, dini perspektifler, başımdan geçen tıbbi keşifler, ancak genel arsa ve güzel çizilmiş karakterler hala sizi içeri çekiyor. parçanın duygusal olarak kırılgan anları var. Özellikle dönemin diğer duygusal çalışmalarından bazılarına kıyasla şiddetle tavsiye edilir.
I really want to love this book and give it five glowing stars, however, I could only manage to give it three, and I think I'm being generous. I absolutely love the idea upon which this story is based, but as for the story surrounding the idea, well, it's full of wide gaping holes and too many unanswered questions. In addition to that, some of the characters were a bit underdeveloped. From the beginning of Fallen, Luce agonizes over what happened to her first kiss, Trevor. I kept hoping that there would be some insight as to what actually happened and why. Luce seemed to think it was the shadows, or Announcers, but in Torment Luce discovers that the Announcers are basically harmless beings that just allow sights and portals to the past, so was Trevor burning in flames really their doing? Doesn't really add up. I was hoping this question would be answered in such a way as to tie it to the rest of the story, but it just seems to be an odd little outside event over which Luce tortures herself, yet doesn't really explain why. Other little things that I thought would have something to do with the story because they took up such big chunks of the book, didn't amount to much of anything. The whole fencing bit where Luce used the advice of the Announcers and seemed to take knowledge of her fencing skills from a previous life to beat Lilith was exciting, and from the way it was portrayed, I though Luce might start to hone in on some of her memories and her knowledge of the past and do something surprising with them. Sadly, my expectations were not met. I'm not really sure exactly what Luce is supposed to be figuring out at the Shoreline school, what specific truth she is supposed to discover. I know she's trying to glimpse images of her past through the Announcers that Steven and Francesca forbid her from 'messing with,' yet help her for reasons untold. Steven claims its because she will glimpse the Announcers with or without his permission, so she might as well do it safely. However, it also feels like he's pushing her to summon the Announcers, as if he's trying to help her stay on the right path to discovering whatever it is she is at Shoreline to discover. There weren't many answers here. A lot of readers seem to have a problem with how Daniel treats Luce. I don't think he was trying to 'order her around' like he's the dominant male and she's the cowering, obedient female. He was telling her what to do to keep her safe. Still, I don't understand why he couldn't tell her anything. I understand there seems to be a reason for his silence, but, again, it wasn't explained. So Luce, frustratingly, goes off on her own because she's desperate and miserable, even though she has some inkling of how dangerous her surroundings are and that there are others who are working around the clock to keep her safe. Luce frustrated me beyond belief. She seemed to be entirely too whiney and selfish. Daniel dropped her off at Shoreline for eighteen whole days, which seemed to be way too long for Luce, with a promise that they would be together when they could. If she claims to love Daniel as much as she says she does, eternally, then why can't she have a little faith, a little trust in him? She acted like it was months, or even years, that he was gone, and she even found a new cute face on which to crush. All this in a matter of a week. Doesn't amount up to 'eternal love.' She doesn't seem to realize, at least for a while, that Daniel has watched her die countless times and has waited seventeen years for her to appear each time. And she thought eighteen days was long. Once she finally realizes the agony Daniel must have gone through, it doesn't even faze her; she blames him for everything that is happening, blames him for loving her, and blames him for the deaths of those around her. She can't decide what she feels or thinks, and it's ten chapters of her going back and forth between claiming their love is untouchable and wondering if she wouldn't be happier with someone else, like Miles. I caught myself yelling at her and having to throw the book down a few times to take a deep breath and count to ten. And another thing, why bring up Shelby and Daniel's past if it isn't going to have any significance? What did that little bit of information have to do with anything? We never really find out who the Outcasts really are and what they want with Luce. We know she's their 'price' to get back into Heaven, but how and why? Who is Luce in this confusing story? Why is she important? After the first book, I was super excited to read Torment because I thought these questions would finally be answered, yet all I ran into was disappointment. I still had all the same questions and more after reading the second novel. I understand it's all about keep the readers interested in buying the next book in a series, however, you can't write two books with the same storyline and keep all of us guessing throughout both. I like a little mystery, but this is a little much. The idea is to shed some light in each book, not frustrate readers beyond belief so they'll have to buy the third book just to, hopefully, find out what the heck is going on. I gave the book three stars because, again, I really love the idea of this book. It's just a shame that it couldn't live up to my expectations. The covers are so beautifully done and the subject matter is so interesting, I just wish the writer would have been a little more clever when it came to tying up loose ends and fitting all her clues together. Instead, everything is a jumbled mess of questions with no answers.
The writing of this series is just not good, but the story line is intriguing enough to keep me going from book to book. :/
