To Swoon or not to Swoon? That is the question!
I finished Swoon a little while ago I am a bit flustered by the whole book. I thought Nina did a fairly good job on the writing but it seemed a bit lacking. Parts of the book were hard to understand and it was hard to get attached to the characters because the story made most of them seem quite shallow. I also couldn't really get attached to the protagonist Dice. There wasn't much we actually got to find out about her, all I knew was that her cousin is Pen, she likes to sing, she has (possibly) black hair and she moved from New York. Relating to the characters was pretty hard I guess.
Personally it also seemed as if the author, Nina Malkin at times, became lazy with her writing and decided to skip some passages. I definitely thought the book's plot had so much potential to be great but I was left unsatisfied at the end. What did you guys think of the book and its ending? My favorite part in the book was when Sin was with Marsh's father, fighting. And he said something like ''Mofo bit me'' something close to that though. I laughed for a little while during that part :)
