Book #51 Hawkes Harbor by S.E. Hinton

Seeing as Ms. Hinton wrote one of my favorite books from when I was a teenager, I was very excited to start Hawkes Harbor. That excitement lasted… all the way up until I actually began the actual reading of it. Hinton definitely didn’t Stay golden as it were.

This is the third book involving vampires that I read this year, and by far the worst. Her telling from a man’s perspective no longer works for me. Even the situations that didn’t involve the undead, seemed very unrealistic to me. She had characters of both genders acting in ways that just didn’t seem believable. It wasn’t a complete waste of time, because about three fourths of the way through I started caring enough about the characters to see it through the end. However, it was still completely disappointing.

But then again, I also loved Theodore Dreiser’s ‘American Tragedy’ when I was younger so perhaps it’s only my past taste that is to blame.

    I’m glad to see that I’m not the only one who didn’t like this book. I’m listening to the audiobook, and I was expecting a great story. I’m so disappointed because I’ve reached disk four and there’s no real story. I keep wondering where is this going? When will the story begin? Save your time and money by skipping this book entirely.
