Read both Twisted and Fight Club on the train this week, and sadly both weren’t very enjoyable.
“You think that’s all I know, bitches? It’s only the tip of the iceberg… and I’m just getting warmed up. -A“
Sara Shepard | Twisted
Twisted is the ninth book in the Pretty Little Liars series and, hooray!, we have a new A who seems to know everything. The whole twin plot in the eighth book was pretty lame and the ninth is more or less just the starting point for new secrets so that new A has something to do. Also I wanted to punch all the girls more than once because after everything they have been through, one really should believe they’d learned something but nope. The only strong point of the book is that it makes you want to read on and find out about the new secret which connects all the girls and the nasty A messages. Probably going to read Ruthless the upcoming week, maybe that one will be better as it’s also a lot longer and probably better developed.
„We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars, but we won’t. We’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.”
Chuck Palahniuk | Fight Club
I only read Fight Club because I watched the movie based on it earlier this year and it took me fully be surprise. The movie as well as the book are probably not for everyone (due to the violence and mind-set) but it really affected me. The problem just is that the movie is very close to the book, and as you also already know the plot twist, you get bored halfway through it. It surprised me a bit that the ending was different in the book but personally I enjoyed the movie ending more.
Palahniuk’s writing style is still interesting though, maybe going to read something else from him some time.
