      Oh man I hated this book I only picked it up well, downloaded it audiobook because when I was a little girl, my favorite character in Greek mythology was Persephone I thought it would be fun to read a re imagining of the old classic storyT SO Let me enumerate the ways I hated this book There may be spoilers ahead.1 All the present tense narration happens over the span of about 36 hours The rest of the book is chopped up flashbacks sprinkled liberally and erratically throughout the story It was c [...]

      I stared at him I didn t understand a single thing you just said Who s Homer This book was such a mess There is no other way to phrase it, it was a complete and utter mess Now, here s the thing I LOVE Meg Cabot In fact, I m practically a swooning fangirl Even the books that most other people didn t like, like Jinx and Pants on Fire, I adored I ve always found that her heroines have a very unique voice snarky, sassy and fun Even when the world is going to hell in a handbasket, you can count on a [...]

      I might look like a honey eyed schoolgirl on the outside, in my skirt with its regulation four inches above the knee hem But I ll rip those tassels off your shoes, old man Just try Googling me Oh dear, I loved this book so much As a huge The Mediator fan, I have been looking forward to it since Meg Cabot announced she would be writing another paranormal series And when she said it would be retelling of the myth of Persephone, I was counting days to the release day As expected, she did it again S [...]

      Writing this review actually make me sad and guilty because I hate writing anything negative about a Meg Cabot book I first discovered Princess Diaries when I was 11 years old and fell instantly in love with Meg Cabot s books I loved the Princess Diaries series and the Mediator series even I haven t a read a Meg Cabot book since I was around 16, but I have happy memories of her books Now I just wish I had not read Abandon, just so I could preserve those memories.Abandon is a new take on the Had [...]

      You guys, I was so excited about this book I generally really like Cabot s work, and a retelling of the Persephone myth Sold Not to mention that the heroine is arguably a WOC I was like, no way can this book fail I was wrong.It was going pretty well until I was about two thirds through the book I had been hooked by the mystery and wondering how it was all going to come together And then it started coming together And then I started wanting to throw the book across the room because I realized I d [...]

      I remember a long, long time ago I really enjoyed Meg Cabot s The Princess Diaries so when I happened on the Abandon Series and saw it was a retelling of Persephone s tale I didn t hesitate to buy the entire trilogy YES, i brought all tree.Given my initial excitement about staring these books, I was sorely disappointed.The Heroin or should we call her the damsel in distress is the most annoying, helpless, uncertain, little thing I ve ever came across She wants to fix everything, and as a spoiled [...]

      For much of her life, Pierce has been haunted by a mysterious young man She first met him when she was a little girl, but was told he was a figment of her imagination When she was fifteen, she had a near death experience and met him again in a strange landscape Several times since, when she was threatened, the man appeared and put the threatening party in a world of hurt Now, Pierce and her mother have moved to Isla Huesos, Florida Mom s hometown for a fresh start Thus begins Abandon, Meg Cabot [...]

      I love Meg Cabot LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE I am totally PSYCHED to finally meet her in person this month too But that s beside the point Now that I have that out of the way lets get to the review.I love Meg s writing, her books are so easy to read and so entertaining I never worry about picking up one of her books because I know that it s going to be wonderful and Abandon was no exception I will say that the story started out a little slow for me, but I really connected with Pierce as a character so i [...]

      I was fooled by the exciting premise and pretty cover Don t make the same mistake Save yourselves I will try to summarize all the things I hated about Abandon.The protagonist, Pierce, was truly the most awful thing about the book She was such an idiot it caused me physical pain Sometimes I d read something so pricelessly terrible that I just HAD to mark the page This happened a grand total of SEVENTEEN TIMES She was so Freaking Awful Some highlights He still seemed pretty mad A good sign of this [...]

      3.5stars I ve always struggled with Cabot s books Besides her Mediator series, the rest of the books I ve read from her were just okay, so I m really very surprised I enjoyed Abandon as much as I did.Actually, the only thing that really bothered me about this book, is what bothers me with all of Cabot s books Her writing style I think it s that she can never.justy Even in her dialog, she has to have a running thought attached to it and it feels like she draws everything out in long, long long ex [...]

      Pierce died She died and discovered that bright lights are not the only thing a person can encounter after they take their last breath The thing though is that Pierce grabs her own second chance and when she wakes up she learns that not everything was a dream and that John is indeed real Sounds intriguing right Well I bought into it and I am sad to say that my description, as plain and short as it is, in my opinion is way interesting than most of this book I am really interested in Greek mythol [...]

    17. Milly on said:

      So this is supposed to be a retelling of the Greek mythology story of Hades and Persephone I honestly don t know much about their story aside from what I read in Rick Riordan s Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief But since I m not well versed on this mythological story, I am unable to make accurate comparisons between the two And I think being unfamiliar with this story actually helped this book for me because I found Abandon s plot refreshing and intriguing as I haven t read any books using t [...]

    18. S.A. Larsen on said:

      A timeless Greek myth brought to modern times with a unique slant that titillates the heart Cabot has masterfully cast Death as one of many thought of death deities, who s been hardened by his circumstances The reader slowly watches his heart open wide as he, like Hades, finds what he s lacking in a human girl And in this case, she s just a little tweaked side of normal On the outside, the story itself has typical teen nuances as well as struggles the girl who doesn t quite fit it, a family that [...]

      Quick Dirty Unfortunately, Abandon starts out slow and continues to drag The narrative is stilted and confusing, and the character development is minimal Many elements of the story fail to satisfy.Opening Sentence Anything can happen in the blink of an eye.The Review Pierce Oliviera had a near death experience Her parent s relationship completely fell apart and her life is in utter turmoil She moves to Isla Huesos, the Island of Bones, with her mother Pierce s near death experience is pretty str [...]

      Oh goodness what happened I know this book was only 290 odd pages of story, so I wasn t expecting a beefy read, but it could have been executed so much better Needless to say, I will not be getting the other books in this planned trilogy.As I ve said before on the blog, it s about a girl called Pierce sephone who meets a Grim Reaper named John, who is barely in the story Seriously, the guy shows up when she s 7, when she s 15, and in the present narrative of the book, but he s mostly out of the [...]

    23. Giselle on said:

      Apparently, unbeknownst to me, this was a retelling of the story of Persephone, but I won t be able to really compare or critique on that point because I haven t read the classic story I know I m lame I only know the very basic queen of the underworld myth and as I read a few of the reviews I ve noticed those who have read the classic tale don t like it as much Nevertheless, I thought it was fresh and original a fun read with a hint of mystery and a few twists.This is going to be a trilogy so th [...]

    24. Kristi-The Book Faery on said:

      Meg Cabot s Abandon was a gripping dark tale that had me at page one As YA PNR Fictional Mythology is becoming and popular, it s becoming increasingly difficult to maintain originality Being a lover of mythology, I am overjoyed with books that are imaginative and creative yet still stick to the original concept Abandon was one of those books.Abandon is not only extraordinary but extremely entertaining with a creative twist intertwining modern day times with age old mythology but the thrills, c [...]

    25. Mimi Valentine on said:

      Meg Cabot will always continue to be one of the wittiest authors on my watch, and that doesn t change with this sweet re telling of the Hades and Persephone myth Although Abandon was a little slow to start, it was such an easy book to fly through in one sitting I loved how you could never tell exactly where it was going You just had to sit back and enjoy the ride, which was really refreshing The only thing I found hard to swallow was how many flashbacks were incorporated in the story because it [...]

      I don t recommend Abandon What the F this book is supposed to be I was confused by Cabot s writing style so it was hard to comprehend the story The author writes like I already know about Pierce s past when in fact, i don t Rewind, fast forward, double rewind that s i felt like when i was reading it.Should Pierce come across as a resilient young woman or as a problem child who really doesn t know what to do with her life Her character was vague enough for me to not connect with her in any way Jo [...]

      I think the library I m a member of specialises in stocking books like this one Books which make me go For starters, why did I even pick up the book It s not like the cover is enticing, so honestly, why Answer Because the cover of the third book caught my eye, and when I realised it was a whole new series I hadn t read already, I got super excited, and checked out the first one.The main character, the protagonist, is super shallow, super whiny, and very frustrating Worse narrators have not exist [...]
