My Opinion :
Scribbler of Dreams may be a pretty old book (it was first released in 2001… I WAS THREE back then! Wut? I KNOW!), but that doesn’t mean it isn’t as awesome as any other newly released book!
Scribbler of Dreams is kind of a retelling of Romeo & Juliet, although fortunately, none of the love interests die! Ain’t that just great?
Its unputdownability makes the book even richer, stronger, and better! A must read for any Shakespeare fan, or any romance fan! Even DRAMA fans will devour this priceless novel in no time!
The story follows Kaitlin and Bram’s dramatic sotry as they quickly fall in love with each other. But, the thing it, Kaitlin is a Malone, and Bram is a Crutchfield. And their families can be considered as archenemies to each other. And so, because she loves Bram too deeply, Kaitlin hides that she is Malone, fearing what Bram would thing of her if he knew who she really was. She mainly hides it because her father killed his father (now, imagine how the family reunions will be 0.0) And as the non-stop lies continue growing, she’s not sure how she’ll tell Bram the truth about her identity.
The writing isn’t really the most sophisticated and lyrical writing that ever existed, it has some sort of beauty to it, one that I didn’t think I’d find while reading this pretty awesome book.
I am really not a fan of insta-love; I find it, most of the time, stupid and not good at all. But, it wasn’t the case for this book; this book’s insta-love doesn’t happen because they fall in love with each other for no reason, but because they are pretty much the same, and they understand each other.
I felt like Bram (I thought that was a weird name… just wanted to point that out…) and Kaitlin made a really cute couple!
But, one bad thing is that the book was too quick for me! I wanted more of the book, more of the characters, more of everything! And, the ending just felt rushed to me, as if the author couldn’t wait to finish the book.
