And this is only the first few chapters of the book! There are fun, captivating stories that make the world feel a little more open and inviting, so I have to give this 5 stars. Before we get into spoilers though, we need to talk about dat writing.
A what’s going on with those birds?! It’s so creepy, because no one knows about it and these people come back forever changed.

But unlike adapration real Cinderella story, the fairies in Ash are much darker in personality. Some parents might object. Thousands of people die. Totally robbing the book as a whole.
Danika reviews Adaptation by Malinda Lo – The Lesbrary
I really appreciated how smoothly it mwlinda integrated with the rest of the plot. This was an extremely quick read for me! Soon, it becomes clear that something disastrous has happened all across the continent.
To ask other readers questions about Adaptationplease sign up. People are keeping tabs on them and it’s difficult to tell the bad guys from the good guys. Sadly, there’s so much going on that things don’t necessarily get a chance to build. I got a message on tumblr asking if Adaptation was like Huntress, so I wanted to point out that this series is very different from her other ones.
She likes to keep to herself, and to her art. Until Angie starts to fall for Margot Adams, a girl feee the nearby boarding school.
The ending oh god, that ending feels right—though I dare not spoil it, and people may disagree with me. Fairies are a very important part of the novel. Both of these things are totally underwhelming. And I was surprised how the reason for the plane crash is added in almost as an afterthought. I had a similar problem with Ash when I read it, though less so, since Ash was a retelling of Cinderella and often in more ephemeral, fae places than Huntress, for all its otherworldly ending.

This is all in the first chapter or two. Nalinda love how this is such a human story: Highschool students unable to get home or contact their folks during an emergency, that’s a hell of a situation. It’s not problematic, but I have a love for this kind of story and I can’t put my finger on why.
But take away the avant garde atmosphere derived from poetic graffiti in a lesbian bathroom, the eggyolk chambers and birds slamming against airport windows, the essentials I look for in a good book felt lacking: The book starts out so action-heavy and adaptagion Amber has a bit more oomf than the other two characters combined, but still feels more like a stock figure than a fully fleshed out person.
To add to my confusion, Reese even told herself she would never get into a situation where she would fall in love just because she was afraid to get hurt.
I see so many people praising this one for character work, and I didn’t feel ll upon reading it. It’s a fascinating story and more than a little bit fucked up. Most importantly, Adaptation features a bisexual protagonist who adaptatiin herself caught up in a respectfully-handled bisexual love triangle. I have a bundle of problems with Adaptation, and I feel like they all come from roughly the same place: I would pause between chapters to curse before jumping back into the story.

So while my complaints stand, it’s quite possible I disengaged from the book aeaptation personal reasons. The warmth and strength of this relationship lingers with you, just under your skin, and I found that I adored it.
