    One thought on “Marked”

    1. Beware of spoilers! (But then again, just don't read this book.)Warning: This review is just me being very negative. In no way will this review sound intelligent and well written. Therefore, if you wish to continue, you may.Anyway, I will start all the way from the beginning. There are so many things I'd like to point out.I pick up the book. I see the cover. It's a picture of half a girl's face. I'm guessing that's Zoey. Whatever. I look at the back. There is a comment from Gena Showalter on the [...]

    2. Read about half of it. Hated it. I'm returning the rest to the library.The authors tried to make so many references to pop culture, they sounded ridiculous, and then were even proud of themselves for "sounding like teenagers," as they stated in the preface. Dumb. They tried to make moral lessons out of the life of this "fledgling," and had her reject things like Paris Hilton's weight, oral sex amongst teenagers, and Ashton Kutcher unfortunately liking older women. Oh, and the world was separated [...]

    3. A little while ago, I bought a battered old vampire novel for £1.50 from a charity shop. Yet the moment I started posting that I was reading it on GoodReads?'RUN AWAY WHILE YOU CAN!''THIS BOOK WAS AWFUL, YOUR EYEBALLS ARE GOING TO BLEED OUT OF YOUR SKULL!''DROP IT RIGHT NOW. YOU'LL BE SO MUCH HAPPIER IF YOU NEVER READ THIS PIECE OF CRAP.''YOU POOR THING, I'LL BE PRAYING FOR YOU EVERY NIGHT!'Or something akin to that.And were my friends right?YES. Yes they were. This book is absolutely atrocious [...]

    4. This was how the book started. The first two pages literally went like this:Tweeny 1: "ZOMG like -insert some teeny bs gossip here-"Tweeny 2: "ZOMG like no! -more teeny gossip and more OMGs-"Tweeny 1: "ZOMG like yeah."All of a sudden some macho vamp guy stands in the hallway, points at teeny no #1 and is like "ZOEY YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN TO BE THE MAIN CHARACTER IN A BOOK THAT IS SO NOT TRYING TO BE LIKE TWILIGHT BUT YEAH YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN."Then they're like "ZOMG YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN."Tweeny 1 [...]

    5. Oh, I liked this book SOOOOOOOOO much better than the Stephanie Meyer series--these kids are smarter, more diverse, less whiny and far more intersting. Add to that a new version of vampirism, and it's a completely winning combination. The story telling is top notch, the characters are interesting, and the book is compelling start to finish. I can't wait to dive into the next in this series!And I have to admit I'm intrigued by the concept of a mother/daughter writing team, especially such a succe [...]

    6. Lets get straight to the point here.This book was weird, disgusting and epic fail at the same time. Let me tell you the whole story in pictures.Enjoy :)(I don't know why, but some of the pics are not coming, sorry for that!)MARKED -THE REAL STORY.Once upon a time, there was this stupid, smart-ass girl named Zoey who was marked as a vampyre. But don't worry my fellow readers! She was special failing.Then this fail-example-of-women got an annoying boyfriend, Heath who is always drunk >.<[im [...]

    7. Hypersexed, boy-crazy, annoying teens. Plus some uninteresting supernatural stuff every once in awhile. For a series that involves so many teenagers having sex, these books sure aren't very sexy.

    8. Okay, I'm going to be posting gifs on this review because this book was just too much.My overall expression after reading up to 150 pages:I wish I could give this 'no star' or something of the sort. I don't even know where to begin with this 'book'. It was retched, horrible, disdainful, etc. etc. P.C. Cast as well as her daughter's writing is childish. All the girls had blonde hair (auburn-blonde, strawberry-blonde, blonde, curly blonde, etc.) it's irritating and the only girl, besides Zoey, tha [...]

    9. About 5 years ago when I first read this series, I powered through them and while I recognised they were problematic, I still consider them a guilty pleasure (the books are just so BAD and fun) 1.5 stars are purely for how trashy/fun this book was. This was SUPER problematic though which made me cringe, a lot. It's homophobic (yes I know there's a gay character but the 'joke' at the beginning saying he isn't really a guy because of this is really really fucking bad), it has plenty of slut shamin [...]

    10. If you were looking for books that embody rape culture , slut-shaming and overall being a terrible human being - this book is for you . Look no further than some of this creative narrative. Her body was, well, perfect. She wasn't thin like the freak girls who puked and starved themselves into what they thought was Paris Hilton chic. ('That's hott.' Yeah, okay, whatever, Paris.) First of all , you should never make fun of people with eating disorders. I have an issue with making fun of serious is [...]

    11. Have you or have you not always wanted to know are you a good girl or a bad girl? A blushing virgin or a streetwalker? Mother Theresa or Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman?You can know now! Just take the newest test: An Ultimate Slut Test by Cosmopolitan me Zoey Redbird. Grab a pen and a piece of paper and let's begin! 1) Have you ever wanted to kiss a boy after knowing him for a short while?2) Have you ever had a crush on celebrity? 3) Have you ever kissed a boy in public?4) Have you ever kissed a b [...]

    12. DNF at about 25%. Wow. This has to be the worst Young Adult I have ever read. It was written about the same time as Twilight (maybe a couple of years later), but Twilight was SO MUCH better. This book is horrible, in that it is filled with so many judgmental stereotypes. I can only imagine that this was geared to brain dead teens without a lick of intelligence because I can't find anything good about this. I have read a LOT of YA written way after this (and written recently) that is FANTASTIC. E [...]

    13. To be quite honest, I almost don't know what to say, or how to say it. I read just under half of Marked this morning, then set it gently aside and stared at the wall in a numb silence for a while. Perhaps, in hindsight, I should have thrown it. Marked is, quite simply, the worst book I have ever read in my entire life. Forget one star, this book has achieved negative stars from me. The horror began with the Acknowledgements. P.C. Cast actually thanked her daughter for making sure they sounded li [...]

    14. I know, I can't believe I read this book either. What's worse? I've read all of them--the six that have been published. Why? Because I'm a moron, that's why.Seriously, this is the worst YA vampire--I mean vampyre--series I've read (so far). While there are elements in this series that are interesting, it's nothing special. I mean, vampyres that control the elements? Come on! Richelle Mead already did that, just much, much, much better. Much better. Why not just write a book about witches? Becaus [...]

    15. I would like to thank the House of Night Series for showing me that, making nonsensical pop culture references and mocking my target audience will create an instant bestseller. Claiming that goths don't bathe and emos are freaks is the absolute best thing to do in a series that sports covers gothier than Marylin Manson (post-Spooky Kids). Calling any number of girls ho's, for no reason other than jealousy, and being racially insensitive is the sure way to go. Thank you Marked by P.C Cast & K [...]

    16. The easiest rating I've ever given a book. Let us please bury the fact I gave Marked four stars upon first reading; I was only 14 or 15 at the time and in that stage of adolescence-- the fangirling, over-excitable stage which no person wants to look back on. Gah. So embarrassing.But then, a few days ago, I stumbled upon Marked again in the library. I was curious as to what I'd think of the book now I'd grown up a bit (in both senses of the word). And my brother was still trying to hunt down a bi [...]

    17. This was a really quick read, made even quicker by skipping over the pages of repetitive neo-pagan-vampyre rituals (which I could have done entirely without). The author is clearly trying to win over the wiccan-teen demographic, while appealing to those who loved the Twilight series. What bugged me most about this one was the author's attempt to address every controversial teen issue imaginable, while instilling good morals without being condescending. She managed, but honestly, the random comme [...]

    18. This probably one of the worst books I have ever read It was horrible. The writing was stupid. If you like to read a grown woman try to talk like a teenager then this is for you I hated it. I mean I felt stupid after reading some of this. They compared people to Paris Hilton, and Ashton Kutcher, they brought oral sex into and they didn't just briefly talk about it they made it stretch out over a couple of chapters. This mother/daughter writing team needs to rethink working together again. My dau [...]

    19. 16 year old Zoey has a crappy home life, an almost-ex-boyfriend who drinks too much, a best friend who's shallow and a geometry test tomorrow. But all this matters for naught when she is Marked by a Vampyre Tracker and must move to the House of Night school in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for four years while her body undergoes the Change into a Vampyre - or rejects it and she dies.This is a new and original take on the Vampire legends, and mixes in matriarchy and goddess-worship with pleasing effect. Zoey [...]

    20. 1.5 StarsOkaaaay. So my theory is this - Overly hyped books like House of Night and Mortal Instruments were released near 2005 when there were very few YA Fantasy books and that's the reason these books are so famous. I mean, people are totally crazy about HoN & MI even though there are many books which are much better than these. So, House of Night.This book had a weak plot, weak as inpointless plot.Why did Zoey get 'Marked'? And why especially by the Goddess Nyx? The author didn't have a [...]

    21. This book was so bad, I wanted to quit reading it, but then I could not have fairly rated it. So despite my better judgment - I read on, wincing all the way!Marked tries so hard to be hip - but "like totally" fails. I know you have to be careful when choosing YA books. Some of it is great - it resonates with those of all ages. And some of it, like this book, is YA crap.The main character was also very poorly created. She enjoyed reading the horrid Gossip girl series, yet was critical of her sexu [...]

    22. EDIT: 28/03/14 I finally remember what Marked reminds me of. It reminds me of that horrible Harry Potter fanfiction My Immortal. They're basically the same, except Marked has much better spelling. (Thankfully).Well, hell. I finished Marked.Marked is not the worst book I have ever read. Halo still tops that list. But, damn, I haven't rolled my eyes so much sincence anything, actually. I actually took the liberty to tab every single annoying line in Marked, and here is how many post-its I wasted:M [...]

    23. This is – literally – the worst (published) book I have ever read in my life. Every time I so much as think about this book, or this series in general, I suddenly have the urge to take a nine iron to an old lady, or set a kitten on fire or something else just as random and pointless that won’t actually solve my hatred towards this piece of crap but will help release some of my anger because Zoey is only a fictional character and I can’t actually kill her will a dull axe. *deep breath* It [...]

    24. **For more reviews, contests, interviews, book news and more go to my blog:theheelshaveeyes.wordpress/Shambles, an absolute bloody shambles is how I can best describe this book.I don’t know what was worse, the tacky and unsympathetic attitude towards eating disorder victims, the blasé attitude towards male rape (the hallway scene, imagine the gender roles reversed and you’ll see how sexist it is) , or the constant usage of the words slut and hoe, oh yeah what a great example we’re setting [...]

    25. Ευχάριστο, ευκολοδιάβαστο, απλό και διασκεδαστικό βιβλίο. Δεν ξετρελάθηκα βέβαια καθώς δεν γίνονται πολλά. Τρώει πολλές πολλές σελίδες, περιγράφοντας και αναλύοντας μαθήματα, ρούχα, κτίρια, ιεροτελεστίες, σχεδόν τα πάντα από όσα είναι δυνατόν να αναλυθούν και να περιγραφο [...]

    26. Typical teen story in which there is a black and white delineation between the heroes and the villains, and you will never mistake one for the other. Our heroine comes from a troubled family, longs for a place to belong, is marked as incredibly and shockingly extraordinary amongst her new peers, butts heads with the queen of the school who is also the flatly drawn villainess, immediately catches the eye of the hottest guy at school who is also the ex of our villainess, shows remarkable powers an [...]

    27. Marked is one of the worst written books I've read in a long, long time. It is incomprehensible how an intelligent and/or civilized person could enjoy a book like this. Although it's understandable how someone could get swept up in the average, mundanely composed storyline, the writing - oh man, I think I might have lost a few brain cells. Hopefully reading this book hasn't permanently damaged my own writing.One of the most annoying things was Zoey, the main character, had a tendency to think in [...]

    28. This book was recommended to me by my niece. I got her started with vampire books sometime back with Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse books. And I was the one who introduced her to Twilight. She gave me one of Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy books & I liked it, so figured this series might be okay, too. WRONG!! Others have mentioned the preponderance of pop culture references, which was annoying. However, my main quibbles are with Zoey's "perfectness" and what seemed to me to be a major " [...]

    29. Zulüm 2009'da başladı. Lise döneminde okumuştum bu serinin bir kısmını. Lise döneminden önce okuduğum kitaplar kaliteliyken (bkz. Felsefe Taşı, Yüzük Kardeşliği, Sol Ayağım, Beyaz Diş vs.), lise döneminde ergenlikle beraber hormonlarım devreye girmiş Utanarak yorum ve puan giriyorum. Ergenlik kötü bir şeydir.
