Aimee Carter ↠ 8 READ & DOWNLOADI am so torn on how to rate this book If the author was setting out to write the most annoying stupid childish character that I hate than anything this book gets a 5 But I don t think that was her Basic BASIC (Hayden computer programming series) intention I knew I was a dog person for a reason I freaking hate Kitty Shes a total dumbass Every decision she makes Socialist Construction and Marxist Theory is like a two year old who does the opposite just to be spiteful while having no real knowledge to base her decisions on She refuses to trust Knoxn spite of everything he has done for her She The Succubus is constantly getting people hurt and killed This girls truly one of the stupidest characters The Bitchy Waiter: Tales, Tips Trials from a Life in Food Service in fictionThe only saving factor for this books the story which Dictionary of Misinformation is exciting and all of the side characters Hannahs a great addition and I still love Knox Poor old Benjy What can I say For scoring a 6 he doesn t seem that bright himself for sticking with an obvious moron To see review with gifs click hereIf Rosettas Dress Mess (Tales of Pixie Hollow, it wasn t for Kitty and her stupid tasten ships this book would get a fairly high ratingThe world building Shadowtech (Shadowrun, 7110) by Karl Wu (1993-01-09) is than a littlenteresting Though the caste set up How to Build and Detail Model Railroad Scenes, Vol. 2 is a little cliche for YA dystopias I like the twists and little uirks that Carter givestOkay Archetype (Archetype, it s true that some of the twists and turns of the plot gonto soap opera territory but for the most part t really works Well n fact I liked the fact that The Wise Man's Fear (The Kingkiller Chronicle, Book 2) it was over the top I think this wasn part because Carter embraced the soap opera ness of the plotIf t wasn t embracedwell that aspect of the book wouldn t workNow I have to go nto what bothered me about this bookKittyKitty Kitty KittyIt seems she lost her brain and then some Driven (Full Throttle, in thisnstallment To be honest I was never terribly fond of this character but rather than growing on me like I hoped she would she did the oppositeThat s sad on so many levelsI think what bothered me the most about Kitty was that every stupid decision had absolutely no logic to back Harrisons Principles of Internal Medicine it up If anythingt just served as a plot point This character really had no sense of self preservation whatsoeverI understand having a character make rash decisions to move the plot forward but I do believe there should be some element of logic to t Here I did not see the logic Kitty just was dumb and acted dumb despite being warnedIn a lot of ways this s similar to Carter s earlier series The Goddess Test In that series I felt that the character was a lot different My Dead Pets Are Interesting in the later books of the series thann the beginning Some of the choices that the character made were so flabbergastingly stupid that Heat It Up (Out of Uniform, it ruined the series for meThe one good thing about Captives that t had such a strong plot that Kitty s actions didn t uite ruin the book for me But t was closeI just had to keep reminding myself that she was just a plot deviceAnd after awhile Guys Like Girls Who . . . it just got a little eye roll worthyKitty s stupidity aside the only one problem I had with this book wasts shipIt bores meI m sorryBenjy that name I always think of that cute little terrier not a hunky ginger O Mistério do Lago (Inspetor Erlendur, is so dull I can not really get a sense of what his characters other than a Kitty lusting objectHe s a lot like Henry the hero n Carter s other seriesIsn t t odd that I keep comparing these two series But I do think their faults are so similarIt s really sad that I want Kitty with the douche end of the supposed triangle well calling Tristes trópicos it a triangle might be a bit of a stretch The things at least The Douche Knox for those of you not up on the MJ lingo Pax Indica is an actual character who has faults I think the best way to describe hims that he s a bit like Batman In the fact that he sometimes acts like an emotionless douche A Modest Independence (Parish Orphans of Devon, in the uest for justiceThat s sort of how KnoxsAnd like Batman every decision he makes even f
