Overall the story is great! It keep me wanting more. I was finished with the book in three days. It had a lot of mystery and suspense to it other than just your typical love story. The only thing that bothered me was the main character seemed to be very naïve about things and put herself in situations most people wouldn't, which bothered me a little. On the other hand because she was so naïve and put herself in those situations it made the story more dangerous and suspenseful. So overall the story was really good and definitely made you want to keep reading!
What did you like best about Hush, Hush? What did you like least?
I liked Patch's character (silly name, though) and I have no affection for the main character, Whatshername - maybe I no longer understand teenagers, but I remember being much more interesting at that age.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
I would have upped the pace of the story quite a bit, as well as created a more engaging ecosystem - the town where story is set, surrounding geography, community colour - for the characters to live in. Coming off of the Shiver series, this aspect of the book was lacking.
What didn’t you like about Caitlin Greer’s performance?
Was Hush, Hush worth the listening time?
The jury's still out. Given the reviews I'll give the series one more book before deciding if I'll warm to it.
This is very much a YA book. The plot is juvenile, the characters are one dimensional and the writing itself is average.
Having said that, it is a fun book with lots of tension and scary elements. Patch and Norah have a cute dynamic, if a little unbelievable - it's not immediately obvious why he'd fall for her. She really is an average teenager with a bit more depth of character than your average high school girl.
I've had the entire series retold to me by my 13 year old and so have no desire to buy the subsequent audiobooks.
My most favourite book of all - and finding it on audio was a real joy considering I have zero time to even sleep right now. Will help keep me sane during third year uni!!
