Trust me I would have loved for my first book in 2016 to be a winner Sadly it wasn t and I never managed to enjoy Shutter mostly because whispers I was drawn into the 4 levels of dooooom no it s not really a thing I do know that shhhHow much as I wanted to like it from the start I felt that something was off with the writing Perhaps because whole pages read like textbooks Welcome to REAPER 101 High powered uartz lenses allowed me to capture light effectively as uartz conducted a ghost s electricity and had a high sensivity to fast moving violet light Most ghosts succumbed in a few photographs their energy whittled down shot by shot and sealed into film s silver halide trapHelsing Research and Development optimized my flashes to slam ghosts with flares of ionized light which broke down the electrons in the air and turned my camera into a lightning rod for ghostly energy Lastly my monopod steadied my had and became a melee weapon in a pinch And so on Can I mention that she is stalking a ghost at this point All these scientific speeches were so freaking specific that they made me lose sight of what was important the PLOT and urged me to get my hands on a thesaurusNot to mention that this wordy and over specific writing emphasizes the lack of dialogues and their fakeness when the characters finally decide to talk together I mean who in the word uses a word like unpalatable in a conversation At 16 One might argue that they aren t our usual teenagers and I sure can t deny that Yet it bothered me because in my opinion the relative lack of dialogues always weakens the characters dynamics More I read and I realize that I have personal peeves that can completely spoil my reading experience An invasion of metaphors is one of them and it doesn t mean that Courtney Alameda s writing isn t good because I m sure some readers will read the uotes below and love them I m not one of those readers Don t get me wrong I don t mind the occasional metaphor but GOD they were EVERYWHERE The writing didn t flow and some sentences let me frowning at my book helplessly Anger rasped in the suared breaths he took the ones for shooting and fighting and not losing your head it deepened the shadows under his eyes and throbbed in his jugular THE FUCK Large sprinklers dotted the ceiling like daisies with razor sharp petals the same apparatuses I d seen on the ceilings of Seward Memorial s Ninth Circle Those devices sprouted nerve gas in case the necros escaped their pens but why would they be needed in an evacuation tunnelI don t know You lost me at petals Then at apparatuses really Definitely too much purple prose for me to enjoy reading Ah Micheline Micheline Micheline Micheline I don t hate you but it s allllll about you now isn t it Indeed I had a hard time standing how self absorbed she was Her safety The future The boys safety Her fault her problems her her her For a girl who s supposed to be badass she spends loads of time whining Her friend Oliver shares a great relationship with his father So unfair given that hers is an abusive asshole She drowns in guilt every time a member of her team is injured It doesn t prevent her from lying to them and hiding important information about their enemies I ll pass over the fact that she sees every other woman as weak and Jude s comments about punching like a girl serve her well or as a sexual distraction for her precious boys god forbid the guys develop feelings I really liked the fact that Bianca resisted and surprised her by the way but did she need to dismiss everything that didn t involve fighting kills Medics are useful too you knowSorry guys it does seem as if I hated her yet I really didn t she annoyed me than everything else but I can t deny that she was brave and strong minded Her inner pep talk and other self absorbed monologues just gritted my nerves I presume As for the other characters I won t lie and hide the fact that Ryden made my heart beat faster in the beginning Loyal protective not an asshole what could one want in a love interest His own personality perhaps Given the fact that the guy doesn t talk I kid I kidalmost I read and blurred he became yes he loves Micheline this is obvious from the start yet what does he like doing in his spare time What does he think of all these events What does he freaking do except acting like a bodyguard for Micheline His whole characterization is centered on his relationship with her and in the end I feel as if I don t know him He has no layers The only things I know about him are 1 He loves rules and Micheline2 He was adopted sort of by Micheline s father for training3 He thinks Jude is gross with his dating Oh that he has a strong opinion about how his friend should live his sex life that he does roll eyesYou sense my frustration You re freaking right And don t get me started about her father slaps the assholeShutter is by no means a bad book though Indeed I found the plot really interesting and most of my frustration lay in the fact that I wanted to know what would happen but couldn t handle the writing and the characters Courtney Alamedaa manages to successfully mix classic horror tropes and her take on the HelsingDracula myth was really well done Trust me it s rare that I find myself captivated by a plot when a book isn t working for me that s why I couldn t rate Shutter lower If it wasn t for the info dumping the metaphors and the stiff writing I m pretty sure that I would have overlooked my annoyance with the charactersSadly I was disappointed in the climax which didn t live up to the expectations carefully built in spite of my other peeves I would love to state that Shutter was unpredictable but unfortunately if it was in the beginning it didn t last Yes it was well wrapped but not surprising at all and uite the easy road Oh well My first book in 2016 has come and gone Still 250 books in my kindle waiting for me to read them no I feel no fear high pitched voice
