The Elite

4 Star Review

This book is a bit hard to review because as soon as I finished it (at 1am) I started the third book (The One). I needed to know how it all ended! It wasn’t as great as the first book but definitely worth reading.

PositivesThis book wasn’t anywhere near up to the high standard of the first book. Of course there were some great parts but there were also some horrible parts; but on to the positives. Kiera Cass’s writing style is always a pleasure to read and she is very gifted. America is a great character although her motives and actions were questionable at times. How can you not love Maxon – most of the time and Aspen was just as wonderful. Marlee was a beautiful character but her part in this book didn’t really work well (for me anyway) and I thought her storyline should’ve been changed. It doesn’t change how much I loved Marlee though.

NegativesI loved this book but it annoyed me in many parts. It had the feel to it that it was the bridge between the first and third book. Necessary but not nearly as enjoyable. America acted very stupidly in some parts and it was pretty darn irritating. There is no way that someone could act like that in a palace and get away with it. The way the main characters acted in some spots was downright stupid and didn’t seem to make much sense in relation to their personality.

OverallI did enjoy this book for the most part and it’s a must read in order to finish the series (which you so have to!) but it was lacking and very annoying in some spots. Those parts almost made me give this book a 3.5 star rating but when there were good scenes – they were fantastic. I’m very glad I finished this book and had the third (The One) ready to start straight away.

BLURBThe Selection began with thirty-five girls.

Now with the group narrowed down to the six Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon’s heart is fiercer than ever—and America is still struggling to decide where her heart truly lies. Is it with Maxon, who could make her life a fairy tale? Or with her first love, Aspen?

America is desperate for more time. But the rest of the Elite know exactly what they want—and America’s chance to choose is about to slip away.

      Thanks 🙂 I can completely understand that but trust me the third book is worth it. Unfortunately you have to preserve through the second to get there. Happy Reading!
