And I tend to like a lot of YA novels who are not perfectly written. But I have to admit that there are some really good aspects in the book.

Sep 19, Tatiana rated it did not like it Recommends it for: fans of teenage male protagonists acting like year old women a la Shiver's Sam. Shelves: morris , ya , why-the-hype , , romancelandia. Ugh, another overhyped paranormal YA creation. When will I learn not to buy into hype?
Just like so many readers, I gave into the favorable internet buzz and opened the book with an expectation of it to be something special. Unfortunately, "Beautiful Creatures" was just another painfully boring overlong dud. Having finally finished this book with a high level of irritation and disappointment, I decided to check out the favorable reviews to see what people liked about the story. Turns out the most Ugh, another overhyped paranormal YA creation.
Turns out the most appreciated aspects of the book were: an original love story told from a male POV compare it to those other romances told from whiny girls' POVs , truly original paranormal lore, and small town Southern setting. I personally found none of it particularly striking. Male POV is also not successful. I think the book would have been better if told in 3rd person, at least the writers' inability to channel a voice of a year old boy would have been somewhat concealed.
As for Southern small town feel, I am pretty sure even Charlaine Harris writes it better in her trashy vampire books. In "Beautiful Creatures" it never rings true and is based on old tired cliches of narrow-mindedness and drawl. But even all these issues aside, the book is simply a too long, often pointless concoction.
Yes, the world of Casters witches is fairly new, but it is never too interesting or believable and can't justify the book's page length. I am still willing to give the writers some credit for their apparent effort to write a better book than the majority of YA writers, with a more intricate back story and better developed characters, but for me personally this book was just an excruciatingly long and boring read.
The chances of me ever reading the sequel are non-existent. Note to those who loved the book and feel compelled to leave me comments explaining to me why I am wrong disliking it: Spare me, I know exactly why you loved this book.
This is only my opinion and I have a right to express it. I don't go to your 5-star reviews and try to convince you you are wrong liking it. Move on to your next paranormal romance instead.

I have read some dismal books in the young adult paranormal genre, books that have been boring or annoying or have offended me, but I think I can honestly say this is up there with some of the worst books I've ever read. Everything about this book aggravated me in one way or another, from the ridiculous length of it to the supposedly male protagonist.
I couldn't even concentrate on the story for the most part because I kept picturing Ethan as a thirty-something wo Phew, I am so glad that's over. I couldn't even concentrate on the story for the most part because I kept picturing Ethan as a thirty-something woman. There are some things I'm going to rant about that may not have bothered me several years ago before Twilight came along, waving its cliche banners.
Well, unfortunately, I can only tell you what I thought of this book now, not speculate on what I might have thought if I'd read it a few years earlier.
So, let's get the whole "this is like every other paranormal young adult book" thing out of the way. There were one or two additions to the witchy aspect of it that felt somewhat original but the general pattern of this novel with the romance and the carbon copy characters was predictable and boring.
No one likes a boring read and it's especially annoying when the book is nearly pages long. Shall I check the usual paranormal YA criteria off for you? Small town New girl Boring holier-than-thou protagonist Everlasting love after a very small amount of time I don't know if this counts as instalove but it certainly counts as instaweirdobsession, full of laughable musings like "there's just something about her that makes me know it's meant to be" hopefully, it's obvious that this is not a direct quote.
I thought that this book might be a little more original because of the uncommon choice to have a male protagonist, but everything is still exactly the same. Now, though, instead of a girl-next-door type, you have a boy-next-door type who sails along in his faultlessness, constantly comparing himself to the less intelligent and morally-questionable beings he must interact with every day.
Ethan even treats us to a rare bout of what I can only call male slut-shaming; he criticises his male peers for having one-track minds and wanting to get off with girls when he is looking for something more meaningful He is actually an exact male version of many paranormal YA protagonists who criticise the popular girls for being more relaxed with their sexuality. Not only that, but he also insults the other members of his Southern US town.
The novel plays heavily on Southern stereotypes and portrays almost everyone but Ethan as being incredibly stupid. Ethan sneers at everyone. He is obviously smarter, has his morals in the right place, and is just downright awesome in comparison. He makes it no secret from the very first chapter that he considers himself above them. He even goes so far as to announce that he doesn't have an accent because he was raised by intelligent people.
And it was predictable. We don't even need to meet Lena or even hear her name to realise that she is the one Ethan will end up with. As soon as one of Ethan's classmates asks "have you seen the new girl? Sometimes, I'll admit, there's some fun to be had watching a couple angst it out together, even though you know they'll be together eventually, but before we even knew her name?

There were no surprises in Gatlin County. We were pretty much the epicenter of the middle of nowhere. At least, that's what I thought. Turns out, I couldn't have been more wrong. There was a curse.

От этого кольца мне было не по. На девушке было много украшений, и я подумала, что ей это кольцо понравится. - А она не увидела в этом ничего странного. В том, что вы просто так отдали ей кольцо. - Нет.
Сьюзан задумалась. Она чувствовала, что здесь что-то не то, но не могла сообразить, что. Она достаточно хорошо знала Танкадо и знала, что он боготворил простоту. Его доказательства, его программы всегда отличали кристальная ясность и законченность. Необходимость убрать пробелы показалась ей странной.
- Вот откуда шрам. - Весьма сомнительно, чтобы Танкадо связал свои ощущения с выстрелом. - И все же он отдал кольцо, - сказал Фонтейн.
Директор резко обернулся. - Должно быть, это Стратмор. Наконец-то, черт возьми. Бринкерхофф поднял трубку: - Канцелярия директора. Фонтейн протянул руку.
