Simple and smooth

My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness…

I delight in weaknesses, insults in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties.

For when i am weak, then i am strong

First of all thank you to the “Shut up and Read community” for sharing the copy of this book with me.

Empath for me was an usual young adult potboiler with all the ingredients that makes for a good intriguing read. The plot on a broader glance follows the traditional paranormal methods but the treatment and nuisances makes it a bit different and this was enough to sell this book for me.

Empath’s story treatment is nice, the parallel narration technique used is quite impressive and kind of fuels the interest. Language is simple, short and easy flowing which makes it a enjoyable read.i love the elements used in the story like the supernatural powers, story enhancers, twists and turns.i did notice a bit rawness in language, but in pinches, other wise the simplicity of the language helped me love this book. Fortunately for me,the author did not incorporate too much emotional melodrama that is an usual side dish for paranormal young adults. Yes there are love trouble, teen angst and other related stuffs, but as i said ….does not hover.

If you have read the book, then you will probably understand when i say that the character of Ethan was totally different and something that kept haunting you and wanting to continue the the book and i loved how the author had made this character run parallel with the main characters and at the end culminating into a crucial story developer. In case you have not read the book, then look out for the character of Ethan.

Empath even though comes with the usual young adult schemes,still emerges as a good and different read because of keeping it fast paced, simple and quick without much hovering. The plot comes with interesting developments, does not stall long, gets to the point straight away. There are lots of fresh elements in the book, in case you are thinking that why should i go for this book, if it follows the routine. Characters are fun. Language is simple, playful and helpful. Its a good read if you love paranormal genre.
