    I must admit that I already read a lot of positive reviews about this novel before I actually started reading it. Now I’m not usually one to agree with the majority – I like being a rebel – but for this novel, I can’t help but agree. Atleast up till some point. I really liked this novel, and it pulled me in with an uncomperable force. However, there are some minor flaws I would like to discuss too.

    Luce – short for Lucette – is living with her uncle ever since he

    OK, so.... This was one of those books that I had a difficult time reviewing, because there were things I both liked and disliked about it. Lost Voices was definitely a creative and captivating story with beautiful underwater worlds, but at the same time I became so incredibly annoyed and frustrated with the characters that it was slightly painful at times to get through.

    I did like Luce, the main character. She was really sweet and someone who you could immediately sympathize with from the very

    Let me say right away, I did not finish this book. I have no idea how it ends nor do I really care to. But, I feel that I listened to enough of it to form an opinion and therefore give a partial review. I have read a lot of reviews on this book and most people seemed to like it. I just couldn't bring myself to finish it.

    What I liked: The writing style and the concept. I thought the author's writing style was great and beautifully descriptive. It just wasn't enough to sustain the story for me. I

    First impressions: I found the beginning of the book to be interesting, but felt it took too long to get Luce in the water. We know it's a mermaid story, and I felt some of the opening scenes could have been cut. Luce runs around town showing us how sad and miserable her life is, introducing us to characters who have no real impact on the rest of the story. I got impatient waiting for her to turn into a mermaid.

    Lasting impressions: The descriptions of life in the sea were really cool, and I thin

    This book made me feel. Really passionately. Except...it was all the wrong emotions.

    Up till the halfway point, I was actually really liking it. The descriptions of the mermaids...the singing, the ocean--they were stunning! And then the dumbest shit starts happening and this is how I looked like for the rest of the book:



    AND I'M NOT EVEN JOKING.

  • Andrez

    This was an extraordinarily written book. The writing was beautiful and lyrical sometimes and the mermaids' voices' descriptions were some of my favorite parts.

    I like this kind of mermaids too, girls who suffered enough to put their humanity aside. It would also explain why they hate people enough to drown them.

    Luce was a nice character, though she sounded a little too mature for her age, I guess that's because of what she went through and thus she had to grow up very quickly. Her almost perman

    I don't like it when mermaids are mean.

    This book has beautiful imagery of shimmering fins and tails and mesmerizing siren songs, as well as exciting near-misses with giant orcas. The author writes lovely descriptions that you can easily picture in your mind, and the book description sounds very intriguing--but unfortunately, neither the story nor the characters live up to the pretty words or the pretty cover.

    Aside from juvenile dialogue and a slight plot, many elements of this book are actually

    This is the story of Luce, whose mother died early in her life and whose father disappeared in fishing boat. His death caused her to be left in the care of her uncle, a drunk, that beats her and eventually worse. This is the story of all such girls who are tortured in life by adults and find a way out. They become something else, beautiful and with the power over humans with their singing. This power will entrance humans and cause them to run their ships into rocks and then all must die.

    But Luc
