Review: Eye Candy
Eye Candy by R.L. Stine
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Saw the first 3 episodes of the new MTV-TV-Series, and thought this might be a good read.
Well, it was not, first, the heroine is blonde model-like woman, blah, no blondes for me.
In the TV series, she is way more interesting.
And the book is from 2004, no mobile phones, only a little internet (dating site).
The TV-series ist not too obviously based on this, luckily.
What really put me off, the stile of writing, a scene and chapter ended, and the story jumped ahead, leaving things out, some to be explained later, some not, so many questions and wrong decisions open, that I did not really engage with the characters and the 1 and 1/2 twists which came near the end, I did not see coming.
Looking back on how long it took me to finish the book, I should have DNFd it near the beginning or fast read it in one day.
Wether you like the TV-Series or not, do not read this book, not recommended!
