CHARACTERS The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

CHARACTERS The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer Michelle Hodkin ò 1 CHARACTERS CHARACTERS Ñ The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer Mara Dyer doesn’t think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there. Warning this review contains flashing gifs and foul languageI ve spent two years avoiding this book I remember in 2011 when I stumbled across that exciting GR description and pretty if slightly creepy and discomfiting cover but my initial curiosity was uickly dampened by the reviews from my trusted goodreads friends And for nearly two years I have listened My intentions were to never give this bookseries another thought until I recently came across this interesting page 15 Young Adult Books Every Adult Should Read And I noticed authors like Laurie Halse Anderson on the list That s when something inside me rose up to meet the promise of a challenge plus who knows sometimes my favourite books of all time have been those I d taken a chance on against the oddsBut this book was just bad The exciting premise is wasted on a novel that eats at the same lunch table as Twilight Hush Hush and Fallen The mysterious paranormal aspect opens up many avenues for the author to have explored and yet she chooses instead to pick the dullest one a cliched romance And damn if this book isn t one huge glowing neon cliche One where a boring heroine with a severe lack of personality meets a ridiculously good looking sexy British bad boy who could have anyone he wants and he somehow finds himself madly in love with her Why Well that remains the biggest mystery of all Two words come to mind when I think back over this book wish fulfillment But yes the other two words spring to mind a lot too This novel is a very fine example of a certain brand of book that contains mediocre at best writing unbelievably hot male love interests and is an empty easy sell for young teen girls Noah really is uite laughably perfect if you like controlling jerks but I ll get to that in a second with his perfect face hair body smile etc his massive fortune his intelligence which includes knowledge of six languages and large uotes from various classic novels He is so flawless I felt like he d just rolled off the factory production line spritzed polished and raring to goAh yes and about that controlling thing I mentioned There s really no need to explain it in detail I ll just pull up some uotes for you Noah placed his forefinger above my upper lip and his thumb below my bottom lip and applied the slightest pressure cutting me off Shut up he said uietly What is Mara s response to his rudeness I nodded feebly oO You nodded feebly What is wrong with you I can t understand why you aren t all likeThen The waiter appeared then and Noah plucked the menu from my hands and handed it over rushing off our order in Spanish The waiter departed for the kitchen I shot him a dark look I hadn t decided yetTrust me This also happens in Fifty Shades of Grey Christian orders for Ana without even asking what she d like or if she s vegetarian or has any allergies For one thing it s flawed But beyond that it s just goddamn rude What exactly is sexy about a guy not giving a damn what you want When you look past the pretty description we are given of Noah s perfection I find him incredibly unattractive pretentious and annoying If I wasn t British myself I think this book would give me a really bad opinion of British people almost as bad as Lindsay Lohan in The Parent Trap remake when she tells her American twin I have claaasss and you don t shuddersThis uote Because I m European and therefore cultured than you might have been funny as an isolated incident but Noah s repetition of similar declarations of cultural superiority with books music etc just made me thinkI also think Mara is in desperate need of a new girlfriend because the girls in this book are ALL her enemies Even her two friends at the beginning get separated into best friend and evil girl who s trying to steal best friend away The word slut naturally appears several times in this novel and usually when the characters are talking about mean girl Anna who immediately decided to make Mara s life hell because Noah showed some interest in her This beautiful uote sums up Anna s characterisation The list of what you re missing Anna is longer than the South Beach Free Clinic s walk in list Jamie said and I was surprised to hear his voice Though I m sure your hookup resume includes the same names Cue group laughter as good triumphs over the evil slut who doesn t deserve feelings This always amazes me in these kind of books that we re supposed to be sympathetic towards the MC and believe she is the victim and much interesting because of her lack of sluttiness I don t think I ll ever understand why that stuff matters I ve been picking out all these uotes throughout this review but I ve saved the best for last If I had been drinking whilst reading this bit I would have sprayed the contents of my mouth everywhere I just can t This is in response to Mara finding out about how Noah slept with a girl who was in love with him just to prove a point to the girl s brother I should haul back and smack him strike a blow for feminism or something or at the very least get out of the car But then his thumb traced my skin and without uite realizing it I leaned toward him and rested my forehead against his to hell with feminism Hot jerk is touching my face Sociology of Higher Education Contributions and Their Contexts knows sometimes my favourite books of all time have been those I d taken a chance

HmmWhere do I even start with this book I guess I should start by saying The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and I have this awkward lovehate relationship If this book were a person it d be the boyfriend I sometimes had fun with but never wanted to take with me in public because I knew he would do something stupid and embarrass the hell outta me For majority of the first half of the book I wanted to stomp it into the ground with my pair of patent leather pumps However somewhere along the lines I started to enjoy myself a bit I d hear a strange sounds coming from my mouth only to realize Oh my that was a chuckle In many ways I can really see why so many people would really like this book but I can also see why others would want to gorge their eyes out with a high school cafeteria spork Mara Dyer wakes up in a hospital bed one day with no recollection of how she got there or what happened to her friends who were killed in the accident that she managed to survive Hoping for a new beginning her family packs up and moves to Florida As the memories Mara thought were lost start to slowly make a reappearance and dead bodies seem to pop up like daisies she notices something is not uite right with her She then struggles to keep hold of reality while trying to figure out the mystery of what really happened to her in her old hometownThe GoodI ll start with the good first since there are a few things I did like and I have so much bad to rant about later in the reviewThe cover is beautiful It has to be one of my favorite covers of the year and I get shivers just looking at it Not only that but the book s premise really appealed to me and is easily the biggest reason why I continued to turn page after page It was a surprisingly uick and easy read and the writing style wasn t bad either I really appreciated that both of Mara s parents were around even though they seemed to dissapear at the most convenient of times And like I said earlier some of the dialog I did enjoy and found funny Most of the best moments for this book is between Mara and Noah the love interest okaaayyy so that s all I got for the good Man that s a bit pathetic It s barely a paragraphThe BadThis book had a lot of potential and for the longest time I couldn t exactly put my finger on what bothered me about the book If it weren t for the following issues this could have been a 4 star read for me possibly The books biggest issues are the actual characters and all the sterotypes that come along with them They were completely extra The gay black guy the extra bitchy popular girl who hates the MC for some vain insignificant reason accompanied by tweedle dumb her trusty side kick or fashion accessory I can t decide which the bad boy who truly isn t bad he has feelings he s deep and likes to

he s the token character But none of this matters because you re not going to listen to your token black Jewish bi friend are you That is the part where Hodkin almost owed me a new Kindle I literally had to stop reading or I was going to lose it His characterization was poor poor poor It felt like he was trying entirely too hard to be both gay and Black neither of which I found convincing About halfway through the book we don t see him again and I couldn t even be mad at that because I was too busy celebrating the fact I no longer had to endure his weird hip hop lingo any I realize this may
