Night School (1,2 and 3 reviews in a very superficial and fugitive manner due to lack of time)
As I’ve mentioned in the title description () , I will write down something in a very rapid manner. I’ve been reading these three books for the past 2 months and I can honestly say that I fell in love within the introductive words of the first book however my favorite will always be the second book( Legacy) . Major overall observations that I’d like to present beside the never ending praising that we all owe C.J. Daugherty due to her interest-catching brilliance put into the 3 books ,would have to be my teenage-mind struggles regarding the themes of the book as the most famed premature and childish love of Allie Sheridan. The love theme marked me mainly due to my obsession with her constant pin ball game between Sylvain and Carter,and also due to my love for -cough,cough- the French student .
(Part of the “commentary” where I pour my feelings out )
God forbid this young girl to experience what real love is. Her feelings are just so… paradoxical,conflicting, exasperating, endless, socially challenging and sooner or later , if I were in her ‘feet’ (courtesy of Sylvain Cassel) I’d go merry-go-round on the moon. In all seriousness now, ( I am basically flooding my anger on a fictional character ,not reproaching this to anyone but Allie) how can you waltz from Sylvain ( because he abused you, I understand that love but you could have told him from the first time something like this——“Sylvain , I am deeply sorry but I am not ready for such an over-whelming manner of showing my possible love for you so please let’s not hurry.” but then still be the one begging him “I want more please.” ) to Carter ( yes, saving you from a getting drowned in a river indeed says that you must be grateful to him, but… then again… Allie! One simply doesn’t go and falls head over heels after being saved twice.)
Now, I will refer to the part where Sylvain tells her he wants her to choose him because she loves him and not that there isn’t a vacant place anymore in Carter’s love life. On Merlin’s beard Allie , you don’t go ping-pong from a guy to another just because he’s taken , and oh! there’s this reasonably acceptable and free guy for whom I’ve had feelings but ‘m not so sure now, though ‘m still going to pass by you again and then Jo dies, guess you are out of luck mon ami because I will torment you even more ignoring you as if we’ve never kissed in such a romantic way ,without taking into consideration the entire school grieves Jo’s death (but keep up with the selfish act Allie, ‘atta girl.)
Please, Allie I hope you make the better choice in the end and stick to one guy , ONE , for the rest of the series.
Phew… God that was relieving .
