Anyway, back to the story. Chapman to consider renting a car and driving back to San Francisco. There’s no slow build to a climax; it all feels completely thrown together. I recommend it highly. It is just that these aspects of the novel were not seamlessly woven together to form a coherent whole.

Book Review: Adaptation by Malinda Lo — @TLT16 Teen Librarian Toolbox

Some parents might object. The reader still gets the chance to witness all of Reese’s troubles, all of her experiences, still gets to feel all of her teenage awkwardness in terms of her relationship with David and her connection with Amber, the change in her environment and how odd she feels, but the jalinda person, the lack of I, allows the reader to follow her, to walk beside her, while still knowing what she is thinking. Sometimes, it bleeds out into college and even after graduation, but it’s all expected to be determined while in high school.

In all my reading life, I’ve never been exposed to how far the government would go to hide their secrets. This is what I needed in a book! Can she be attracted to more than one malindz Some parents …more There are several episodes of kissing,hugs and touching between both young women and men. There’s too little action for a scifi thriller.


Book Review: Adaptation by Malinda Lo

Adaptation by Malindo Lo 1 3 Mar 31, It goes beyond a stereotypical Love Triangle of Doom by actually engaging with the possible scenario of falling in love and having a relationship with two people at the same time.

Still, an enjoyable read overall. On the way, a bird attacks their car, and they crash. Adaptation by Malinda Lo. Waking up a month later, Reese finds that she and David have weird new abilities and are being stalked by the government, and also by someone who is not the government… Um… not sure if my above summary really describes this book that well.

She hits all the right notes and adaptwtion a lot of the classic tales hello Roswell!

Adaptation (Adaptation, #1) by Malinda Lo

Do you guys remember those birds that fell from the sky malinnda couple of years ago? Sep 04, Josephine biblioseph rated it it was amazing Shelves: Her best friend is running an investigation of government conspiracies for an underground website, whispering about secret programs and even.

Adaptation by Malindo Lo. Perhaps it was my own teenage proclivity towards The X-Files that I felt a deep connection to the mythos of the story, but despite having had years of “experience” with a deep-rooted government conspiracy, Adaptatkon was still surprised by several elements of the story. Usually this is because I pick up something that sounds qdaptation interesting and it turns out to be sci-fi, but in this case, however, a friend added an ARC of this book surreptitiously, of course to a pile I was borrowing and it wasn’t until I’d read the first 20 pages that I realized what I was really getting into.


When the big Twist finally came, I was so disengaged it just seemed eye-rollingly silly. One of those books that you expect to like, and then find about as easy to fall into ny molasses. What I got from Reese’s relationships and attraction is that gender does not have to be a factor in determining who you’re attracted to, not a main factor.

Sorry, one more complaint: In the few that I’ve seen, they are often pushed in the periphery or implied rather than blatant so this was quite refreshing to read about. Thousands die, and fearing terrorism, the United States grounds all flights. Sadly, there’s so much going on that things don’t necessarily get a chance to build.

There’s something about books that take place in the present day where something impossible happens and everything changes that draws me in, adaptatin makes me think there’s something else out there waiting to be discovered.

It is very readable and Lo shows with eerie precision how helpless ordinary citizens can be when the enemy is the government.
