Blog #8

I'm currently reading The Midnight Star by Marie Lu, the story is told mainly in first person by Adelina. Other small chapters are in third person about Raffaele or Maeve, sometimes a different but mainly those two.

So far, the story loves to play with my heart strings. In there is a lot more backstory to some characters so whenever they die later on I actually feel sad, even if they horrible things earlier in the series.

The author, Marie Lu, does an amazing with this book. It had to be hard to wirte because in this series, no is really a good or bad guy. They are all in the gray, not good or bad. In the acknowledgments she said this book (and rest of series) was really hard to wirte because everything is pretty dark. Yet she loves how it turned out.
