See all 6 questions about Evernight…. Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Claduia it just me, or does that annoy anyone else seven ways to Sunday? I get that people claudua to allude to some of the bestselling series of vampire books ever, but saying “enjoyable But hey, I’m one to talk, huh, seeing as I’m about to do the same: The only comparison between the two books I think is appropriate to be made and the only one I’ll ever make is that while it is Twilight’s tagline that says “deeply seductive everniggt extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight is a love story with bite”, Evernight is the book that fits that bill.
I enjoyed Twilight, don’t get me wrong, but let’s call a spade a spade: Twilight is marketable fluff with a suspense subplot and that’s all it really is — a subplot. And even so, the suspense is predestined to end in Happily-Ever-After Ville, so, veernight ever having a doubt of where it’s headed, can we really call it suspense?
Evernight, methinks, has real suspense “in equal parts” with romance. Moving on, as this rant is getting too long-winded and distracting attention from the review itself. Don’t let the beginning of this novel get to you. This review click — beware of spoilers! Basically, I felt like the beginning eevernight one direction and then when the twist came, it veered another direction completely, and the two parts, together, were incomprehensible. When I discovered midway through the novel that Bianca already knew and accepted that she was a vampire, I was ready to hurl the book across the room.
For one, it made no sense in synch with everything I’d learned up to the evernjght point. If you were amidst an alien evernigght and you were one of the few humans in existence, wouldn’t you think to yourself every once in a while, “Hey, I’m human.
I live with aliens, but I’m still human.

I know this because I don’t look like an oversized zygote”? How could she not even grqy about her diet differences with humans? And for another thing, it was deceitful of Bianca to earn my sympathy through her lonely-girl gripes about not fitting in at Evernight when she was in the majority, species-wise.
Added to this is the dragging narrative evernjght in this first portion — some of which, by this time, I didn’t see the point in. Now, judging by the fact this is earning four stars, something inside the book must’ve worked, correct?! When I hit page something and the catalyst finally appeared, I literally sat up on my bed and my eyes bulged out so much, I thought they’d pop out of my head.
From there on out, a dozen little plot developments happened that changed the novel’s progression in a way I didn’t for a second see coming. For every boring moment in the first half, the second half offered an complex setup, quick pacing, and really, really great discoveries. I won’t go too much in detail because I don’t want to spoil anyone’s reading experience, but I can guarantee you this: Enigmatic, but balanced, and very well thought-out. Coaudia in my criticizing paragraph that I said some of the stuff in the first portion didn’t make much sense to me?
I grxy Lucas’s character he seemed to me like a gratuitous lover-boy typethe sometimes over-the-top romance between Bianca and him, and a lot of details that made no sense whatsoever. It was all a set up.
Nearly everything gets explained later on, and you can see the sheer genius behind this carefully strung story. I mean, I still don’t get why Bianca knew she was a vampire all along when it would’ve been a much more groundbreaking move in the overall scheme of things to have her find out along with the reader the reality of the situation, and that’s what robbed this book of an A-rating, but everything else?
This book is perfect for people sick of the tried-and-tortured vampires-are-oh-so-sexy books that seem to dominate the YA vamp-lit genre nowadays. I am not kidding when I say the fray Claudia Gray introduced here are very original and engaging.
I’m bashing my head in at the re-scheduling of Stargazer’s release because I am desperately in the need to know what happens from here.
Ignore the first part, revel in the second part, and then come join the line of people awaiting Stargazer’s launch, which is, of course, led by me.
I’ll bite anyone who tries to cut ahead and I can’t guarantee I won’t drain you while I’m at it. View all 12 comments. View all 4 comments. Pretty much, I think hray rating is going to come as a massive shock to The thing is, Evernight really isn’t that bad. I don’t actually know what to do with myself. Hray guess you’re all spared of that If you can imagine that Harry Potter is the dignified, lovable parent and Twilight is the alcoholic but not-abusive-enough-to-warrant-removal parent then Evernight comes out somewhere in between.
It aims, but ultimately falls short of claudka as dignified, full of solid characterization and whimsical as Harry Potter but neither is it angrily raiding the fridge for baloney and shouting at the cat to get a day job while dressed in a moomoo. It even tries evwrnight an M.
Night Shaymalan twist twice in the novel but neither one was actually of any great surprise. I will evvernight in here, as Anila pointed out, that there is withholding of information from the first person narrative. Authors, don’t do this – it’s really annoying and crappy. Still, the book is not entirely archtypical of a genre so polluted graay hastily spat out gibberish. Bianca is actually intelligent. I don’t mean the Wuthering Heights reading kind of intelligence although Evetnight Heights does warrant a mention in this book.
Aside from actually being a geek and doing her homework, everhight speaks intelligently and forms opinions and makes comments that actually convinces me that this character IS intelligent. Unlike Luce from Fallen who is supposedly a straight A student who never cracks open a claduia and often has trouble forming a complete sentence let alone a complete thought. Lucas as the love interest is okay. He’s antagonistic and defensive yet also vulnerable and sweet.
The lovey dovey aspect of this novel was actually what bored me the most. I just didn’t actually believe that their love was anything more than “calf love”. It was an incredibly childish and silly vray. Which is to be expected because Bianca and Lucas are childish and silly.
Still, the only time I ever felt the chemistry was in their first meeting and after that, I felt like Gray was simply forcing them together because her plotline required it. The writing was okay, eevernight secondary characters were okay and the plot and pacing was alright.
Over all, it was a thoroughly average grag but I felt that the characterization of Bianca was what actually saved it from being a complete rip off of The Covenant or some other book like that. I’ve been told the series does not improve with more books so I won’t be reading the rest of this series but I do feel that as a novel, over all, I would rather a teenager read this than say Fallen or Evermore or Hush Hush.
And now there’s nothing more to say other than the fact that I feel like I should go into hiding or something lest the GR police show up to arrest me and beat me because they keep saying that I’m resisting arresst even though I’m curled up on the ground sobbing while they play hackysack with my kidneys.

It feels more like a middle grade novel than young adult; I’d probably have enjoyed it when I was 10, but not so much these days.
