Call me crazy (or morbid), but I really like this sort of stuff--reapers, the reaping of souls, or in this case, Death breaking the rules by not taking a soul. I don't know why, but this reaper stuff just fascinates me. And what initially caught my attention about this book was the premise. But as I continued to read more and more, in some ways it reminded me of Twilight/New Moon. Now, I don't like comparing one book to another because that just seems unfair, but sometimes it's impossible for me to not notice some glaring similarities. I mean, the guy stalks the girl, they fall in love but the guy tell the girl that they can't be together, then the guy leaves the girl and the girl goes nuts-o and withdraws into herself...s ound familiar??
Another problem I had was with Dank... er, not Dank himself (he was pretty cool overall), but his name! I mean, seriously, Dank! How can you take Death seriously when his freakin' name is Dank?! Anyway, later I find out that its short for something (that I cant remember)... but still. Don't like the name.
And then there's Leif... I felt like Pagan was just paying with the poor guy! Sure she genuinely liked him, but if she liked Dank (*cringes*) more she should've broken up with this poor fool!
Although I had a few problems with the story (as you may have noticed in my somewhat rant-y review), I can't say that I absolutely hated it. in truth, I thought it was rather entertaining with it's reaper stuff. And if this sounds like something you might like, I say go for it!
Have you read this book? If so, leave me a comment telling me what you thought about it! If not, what do you think? Does it sound like something you might want to read?
