I really, really liked Hush, Hush and based on what I’ve read I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series, starting tonight with Crescendo.
I do think Nora was crazy! I can’t decide if she was fearless or just plain stupid to do a lot of the things that she did without much thought to her safety! There were a lot of scary things happening to her and yet she went roaming around on her own, often late at night, in search of the answers. This usually resulted in her facing more danger! I’m a scaredy cat so I’d never do anything like that, maybe that’s why I think she’s crazy for doing those things?
Patch was un-nerving for a lot of the story and I was actually scared of him. I guess that’s a good reaction though, I think it’s the one what was expected of me, just like Nora was scared and unsure of him and his intentions. It was hard to know if he could be trusted. I liked how his story and history was revealed. We got to see how his past resulted in his future actions.
Vee was just so funny! I loved her most of the time. Sometimes though I did just want to give her a shake and tell her to get her priorities and loyalties in order. She was boy and fashion obsessed, didn’t give too much of a thought to her school grades and was just such a scatter-brain! She WAS loyal to Nora, but she did sometimes let her feelings (however fickle) for boys get in the way of her thinking clearly.
I liked the ending. It was full of tense, scary, dramatic action and it worked perfectly in my opinion. What happened between Nora and Patch wasn’t something I saw coming. I just didn’t know how it would be played out. I liked it though.
I thought that Becca Fitzpatrick’s writing style was easy to read, flowed well. included just the right amount of description and world/scene building and it certainly had me hooked! I’m definitely a new fan of her work.
