Return to Book Page. Too much that doesn’t quite do enough.

Reacting to the fact that two weeks ago a few vaccinated people had been bitten during a riot and still contracted the Lazarus. In diesem Buch gibt es Zombies. All the while, Bram’s second life is slowly wilting away.

I want to be out in belovex city, helping them. He’s awesome and brilliant.

Beryl Chase was waiting for us in the foyer, in front of the huge sweeping staircase. The ending does leave you wanting to read the next book, however I do hope it is more like Dearly Departed, and this is just the slow middle book.

I didn’t need food, or water, or even oxygen, but I needed her. She is so interesting and colorful.

Don’t ever think I want you to change, to be something you’re not. Bram and Nora trust and love each other and they have become one of my favorite couples. As for the rest? I loved the action and plot developments. There are reveals coming up but I only write like this when I don’t want to read a book again and because I found this one so long well The elements I loved from Beloed, Departed – rich detail, a complicated romance and modern technology mixed with Victorian era elements – either were absent or only added to Dearly, Beloved’s inability to fully capture my attention.

I struggled to get into this book, it was stagnant and flatlined all the way. Most readers can do this belovef much difficulty – to a point. First of all, the structure, writing style, and setting.

But where do the zombies come in? There just wasn’t enough tension between the warring factions and the book didn’t really take off until half way through. Honestly, it’s actually pretty admirable. With too much left unresolved, in a lengthy habwl that should have been shorter, I can’t say I truly enjoyed Dearly, Beloved.

Dearly, Departed is set in and centers around the people of New Victoria and the Punks. Now, instead of cultures and nationalities, we have people like Nora who have reverted back to a Victorian-ish society This novel had SO much potential.

Dearly, Departed

Not only is it funnier, better thought-out and better written than Dearly, Departed, it also affected me more strongly. That thought made me smile. Nora, Laura, Pamela – even Bram – all had moments where they sounded like the same person and I often found myself confused about a character’s reaction, only to realize that I was mistaken about which character’s view I was reading from.


I couldn’t remember their connections to each other, the pasts that made them who they are, or the reasons for their unfaltering trust in Bram. We made our way across the breadth of the hill to fetch my digidiary, then started the trek back.

Sep 16, Torzilla rated it it was amazing Shelves: I wanted to love this book. I’m beating a dead horse. I for one as long as it is well written; do not mind. There’s hardly any cliffhanger at all, which of course I loved! I could never fully imagine her world while I read, and so this was overall a very difficult book for me to make it through.

Although it was a slow beginning, the story really picked up and was really intriguing.
