Panic

Panic - Lauren Oliver 2.5 stars

This just did not work for me at all. Overall, the writing was fine but the story was just a big ole mess.



There are just too many things trying to happen in this book. Essentially 4 main characters, a shitty as hell town, boredom to the point let's risk our lives and try to fucking kill each other (for $67,000), abusive mothers, revenge, a crippled sister, a zoo of saved animals, and really it's was just too much. With all this there was little character building, a lot of whining, and just flat out gaps in the story. I felt like if this story could have focused on a couple of things, built upon those elements alone, I would have been more satisfied.

Oh well...next?
