I was expecting some serviceable, generic words-on-a-page, but instead there was just pleasantness.

But I’m crossing my fingers desteano the beauty deetefano the language and imagery will also be matched by more intricate plotting and more genuine emotion. Not to mention that the husband at 20 years old seems to be a thriving and gifted architect – I guess he must have started going to school for architecture and attained his degree when he was what – 14 years old??

Sorry, that’s does not make for an interesting read.

She kept fighting, and she had a reason to fight and she had family to get back to who needed her. He opens her to a magical world of wealth and illusion she never thought existed, and it almost makes it possible to ignore the clock ticking away her short life.

I had a few problems with the book, and in order to end this review on a good note, might as well get my “issues” out of the way so we can continue to the good points. More reviews at A Flurry of Pages! To know that you had a very certain amount of time to live. Also, she has a way to hurt both Vaughn and Linden just by telling Efikera the truth.

People, we’d turn into Mercury if there were weapons that could do that. Guess he and Rhine are perfect for each other. Or someone didn’t want to write a rape scene from behind the eyes of the MC. After spending pages with Rhine, I still don’t feel as though I really know who she is or why people are drawn to her, except that they’re supposed to be.

Although, to be honest I can’t imagine a world where everyone dies so young either. Apparently, all of humanity has contracted a virus that kills off men at twenty five and women at twenty. I found their scenes together, particularly those toward the end, to be etimera heartwarming. I feel like Efiimera have it for forever. This strikes me as a stunning cop-out. I expected shock tactics and obscene cruelty that would have me sat, pulse-racing, wondering what would happen to our protagonist and if she would ever get free of the marriage she was forced into.


Why not 1 star? Thanks for telling us about the problem. It’s hard to sympathize for someone who was so willfully ignorant of the situation.

Another thing that was clear to me from reading is the fact that Lauren DeStefano is, in fact, a very good writer. I wonder how her brother was getting along. So if you’re looking for an interesting, thought-provoking YA Dystopian, give this a try!


Let me start by saying that I know numerous people who liked or loved this book, and that I see why someone would destefxno I mean no disrespect to your opinions. I like Rhine, she is a lot like me I feel, with her independent free spiritedness. The main issue I had with this book is that the world building was a mess. Rhine shows more anger towards a teenage girl, who is just as much as a victim, than Linden. Realistically, he would have been a character who purchased three girls from slave traders and, with full knowledge and forethought, forced them to marry him.

The damage was so catastrophic that all that remains of the rest of the world is ocean and uninhabitable islands so tiny that they can’t even be seen from space. Yet, had I been reading about her efimerq a different setting, I believe would have formed a very different opinion about her. But hell, that doesn’t even take reasearch.

I liked the oldest sister wife whose name escapes me right now. The Bad The book’s premise is that efkmera virus kills all women at 20 I don’t want to recap the book since the goodreads recap pretty much says it all, so I’m going to jump right into the review. That’s not his fault at all, but let’s be lajren here. Why would they care to make babies? Disease is not that precise. When something is placed in water, the water level rises equal to the amount of area of the dfimera that went underneath.


Sitting around and looking pretty is not a plot. The Chemical Garden 1. In the beginning, I was inclined to hate him, much as Rhine did. You’ll have to read the book to understand, but trust me I came undone at some of the stuff efimerx was presented, but that didn’t stop me from realizing the underlying beauty that was there when you peal away the many layers of this book.

That seems too random and unlikely that I had a hard time envisioning a setting where only the US exists and all other countries are wiped off the face of the earth. Because it brought out my emotions and I guess that is worth a half of a star! The book handled the social issues with extreme care and effortlessly wove the issues into the newly created dystopian world that was explained in its entirety. It makes zero sense that a society dying like flies would be collecting brides for the rich and shooting the rejects.

It doesn’t make sense how society continues with everyone dying just as they hit maturity. Like, seriously, I can count on one hand how many girls in novels dsetefano deserve these amazing guys Ella from Efinera Enchanted, Janie from Wake, um… drawing a blank here, gimme a moment.

Efímera by Lauren DeStefano (2 star ratings)

I don’t know why. Is the reader really supposed to feel sympathetic towards a man who refuses to learn anything about the world?

Playing with genetic engineering, scientists created a new, improved type of people, cured of decease, with longer lives, etc. I know that US have Silicon Valley and high-end war weapon but are desttefano enough to demolish hundreds of countries? Wither had a lot of things going for it: Its not, by any means, a bad book, simply not quite what I was looking for. I’m not kidding; here, have a quote:
