Read full description of the books:
Welp. Errrrrybody loved it but me. Literally. All my friends who read this gave it no less than four stars. So it must be me. But this is what killed this story for me.
1) Jane. Hated her! I know she is an immature privileged 16 year old. We are told this over and over and it was still annoying. I tried to ignore it and just wait for the growth, but I couldn't take it. I could not sympathize with her and her whiny outbursts. Sigh.
2) The Mother and the friends. Hated them! Horrible creatures. No wonder Jane was so messed up. The mother was horrible, absent, dismissive, controlling. The friends were so vain and selfish and idiotic. It became unbearable to read about them.
3) I know this was written in 1981, but I felt the author was very heavy-handed in portraying a teenager's mood swings and immature behaviors. It became almost a caricature. Having the main character grow up among wealthy narcissists only served to keep me from feeling anything. For anyone.
*One thing I did really like was the world building. There were some cool sci-fi futuristic stuff that was impressive considering this was written in the early 80s. You could tell some of it was dated when "tapes" were referred to as advanced technology. haha. But there were other things that would still hold up in today's sci-fis. Unfortunately, that was not enough to save the book for me.
I really, really wanted to like this . I tried. I did. But I feel like I am forcing myself to read something I don't want to. So I'm stopping at 39%. DNF. I'm sure it's just me.
It comes down to this: I just could not connect with Jane and did not care about what happened with her and Silver. :(
And now I've found out from a few other reviews that Jane doesn't even (view spoiler)[end up with Silver???? (hide spoiler)] For real? lol. I'm glad I DNF'd this. It's just not for me.
Buddy read with Sam and the MacHalo group July 26, 2016. I'm excited!!
High ratings from friends. How can I resist???
