Book Review : Brutal Precious (Lovely Vicious #3) by Sara Wolf
Book: Brutal Precious (Lovely Vicious #3)
Author: Sara Wolf
Plot : The boy she maybe-sort-of-definitely loved has dropped off the face of the planet after his girlfriend’s death, leaving a Jack-shaped hole. Determined to be happy, Isis fills it in with lies and puts on a brave smile for her new life at Ohio State University.
But how long can that smile last with all of her friends gone?(Official Synopsis)
At least she is talking less
Yes it is true that fortunately by the third book, Isis is talking less and is giving space for the story to develop but that doesn’t mean that she isn’t interesting or her older self.
While the blabbering is a bit toned down, I can’t help from noticing that the author skips on certain points in narration. The author kind of refers to things and incidents that sort of have never been mentioned before in the series. In Certain parts you feel that author might have forgotten to mention the bigger picture in her addiction towards talking, talking and more talking
For a finale, I have to say that Brutally Precious sort of did disappoint, as I still feel that there were a lot of stuffs that remained to be cleared or mentioned. Lots of events and elements that had been discussed and opened in the first book still remains as a mystery which to me was really disappointing and irritating as I had believed that by the third book every question would have been nicely answered but unfortunately it doesn’t happen and you still are left wanting more information in spite of having been with the series for three book and have almost lost your ears to Isis’s constant blabbers.
So in the end it was all for nothing
Not the best kind of ending for a series as many of the stuff still remains a mystery. Story too for me felt was done in haste. Lot of characters came and went without explaining their part properly and in the end everything was thrown in haste, hoping that it will answer and close all the open questions. Some did while some didn’t.
