My rating: 1 of 5 stars
I thought that the series couldn’t possible get any worse, then I read this book. This book is Honor Student all over again, except from William’s perspective. It does explain some of his over-the-top stalking behaviors. Apparently, our boy William is a creepy sociopath. Seriously, I would not be surprised if his character goes in some sort of public killing spree. Either that or all of the characters will die of alcohol poisoning from their binge-drinking ways or during DUIs, because they all seem to think that driving doesn’t get impaired by drinking bottle after bottle of hard liquor.
The lack of descriptive content and transitions that plagued the first book continued into this book. The editing was just as bad, if not worse. I ended up skimming toward the end of the book because, aside from William’s revelations of whack-job behavior, there wasn’t really any difference in this book and its loathsome predecessor. If you’re going to rewrite a book from a different character’s perspective, then you might actually want to have the ability to write well enough so that the stories don’t seem to be mirror images of one another.
And to think, I still have one more book from this series that I have to read–because I was dumb enough to buy the first three books without knowing anything about the series or the writer. I hope that no one else ends up being as clueless as I was. Run, don’t walk, away from this book. It will only bring you boredom and pain.
