This made me feel like I do when I read a book by Nicholas Sparks or Jojo Moyes. ( )

Didn't finish since it seemed to be derivative of other books I had read before... I'm not going to rate it though since I didn't get very far into it.

teen fiction; paranormal romance (persephone, again). I gave it 50 pages but despite all the rave reviews could not bring myself to care. Love triangle between dull girl, sensitive jock, and bad boy Hades just wasn't very juicy, and ambiguities about the "Feed" weren't enough to keep me interested. ( )

Ich gestehe, Ewiglich die Sehnsucht war ein Coverkauf. Es gefällt mir sehr gut und die hervorgehobenen Buchstaben auf der gebundenen Ausgabe sind nett anzufassen. Aber wie es manchmal so ist, ein tolles Cover reicht manchmal nicht aus - zum Glück hat mich Brodi Ashtons Auftakt der ewiglich-Trilogie nicht enttäuscht.

Brodi Ashton hat sich in der Welt der griechischen Mythologie umgesehen und einiges für ihren Jugendroman ins Hier und Jetzt übernommen. Kenntnisse der mythologischen Figuren oder Welten braucht man nicht, um die Geschichte zu mögen und zu verstehen (es wird eh viel erklärt). Die Geschichte beginnt quasi mit dem Ende, was bei mir erst mal für Fragezeichen im Hirn sorgte ;) Trotzdem war ich gleich gefesselt und habe mich von der flüssig zu lesenden modernen Sage mitreißen lassen. Ein Grund, warum mir Ewiglich die Sehnsucht so gefallen hat, ist sicher, weil ich grundsätzlich Gefallen an Mythen und Sagen habe - und nicht nur an der griechischen Mythologie.

Die Figur des Cole fand ich toll gewählt: ein gutaussehender Musiker, dem niemand widerstehen kann und der mit seinen ebenfalls unwiderstehlichen Bandmitgliedern die Menschen in die Unterwelt zieht. Auch Nikki hat mir gefallen, wohingegen ich ihre große Liebe Jack etwas blass fand. Für einen Jugendroman passen die Figuren aber alle - ein wenig hatte ich während des Lesens auch die Bella-und-Edward-Figuren vor Augen.

Insgesamt ein toller, spannender Jugendroman, der durch sein mythologisches Thema gefällt. Band 2 und 3 der Trilogie sind schon geordert. ( )

So there are two main reasons why I rated this book just 3.5 stars. First, the pacing of this book was all over the place. Second, some of the main characters (i.e. Cole) and secondary characters (Nikki's dad and brother) were not fleshed out enough for me.

This book until the very end flashes back to "LAST YEAR" with a countdown to how many months/weeks it was until the "Feed" and to "NOW" how many months that Nikki has til she has to come to a decision about whether she is returning to the Tunnels in the Everneath or will go along with Cole's deal. It was distracting the entire time and really messed up the flow of the book.

I definitely think it was a good idea for Ms. Ashton to highlight it for readers so it can consciously cue them up to what they are reading at that point in time. However, I think it would have worked better to either have the story go from the present and just flashback to everything that happened to have the reader understand why Nikki was okay with initially throwing away her entire life. Or just tell it in the present with minimal flashbacks.

I realize that there is a fine line to walk here since without the flashbacks you don't get a good sense of Jack's character for a long while and Nikki's relationship with him. I think there is a happy medium to using flashbacks in books and I think this one definitely got past that point after the umpteenth "LAST YEAR" and "NOW." I felt myself getting impatient since I wanted to see what was so awful that caused Nikki to make the initial choice she did.

The development of some of the characters in the book to me was somewhat lacking too. For example, Cole I guess is supposed to be this bad boy who somehow has feelings for Nikki. We know he has feelings for he because sometimes "emotions cross his face" and he acts jealous when Nikki hangs out with Jack. And Jack tells Nikki that Cole loves her.

My opinion. Cole is a bland sociopath. Or that is the way that Ms. Ashton writes him. He really doesn't care about Nikki unless he is trying to get her to bend to him and threatens everyone around her. I give Ms. Ashton kudos though for not having Nikki do that well maybe Cole really loves me and I can change him dialogue.

Initially Nikki feels herself drawn to Cole, but pretty early on you realize that this is not a true love triangle. Cole wants Nikki because he's angry that she dares like someone else more than him and is used to getting his way. Nikki is in love with Jack and wants to protect him. I am so glad that this book did not have any of that which one should I chose foolishness. The choice Nikki has to make is to do what is right or what is easy.
She really isn't choosing a guy in either scenario.

Along with Cole I wish that Ms. Ashton had fleshed out other characters in the book more. We have some great insights into Nikki and Jack. I initially didn't care that much for Nikki, but she grew on me and I thought her voice got stronger throughout the book. The same thing happened with Jack. I initially thought he was just going to be some typical jock that Nikki had dated. However, you get to see the depth and breadth of their relationship and I really liked how that got unveiled over time.

However, other characters like Nikki's father barely seem to be in this story. We reference Nikki's brother Tommy once in a while, but that's it. I think I had such a problem with this since we know that Nikki has a certain amount of time that she is back on the surface. She keeps saying she will do things differently this time and be with her family as much as possible. We instead get her mentioning how she is doing things differently this time, with no real sense that she is actually doing things differently. I had the same problem with Jack's brother Will. He's written one way for almost the entire book and than magically changes into a stealth Army ranger ninja (don't ask).

I thought that the way that the Greek mythology was woven into this story was done very well (the story of Persephone and Orpheus and Eurydice) and thought how clever it was that the story of Orpheus and his wife is what ends up unlocking everything for Nikki. I just wish that we had gotten more Greek mythology in this book. I got this book since it was recommended to me after I bought the entire Starcrossed series and that book takes Greek mythology and turns it on its head (in a good way). I was hoping for more of that in this book. Perhaps book two or three gets into the mythology a bit more. ( )

History books call it the Underworld. Or even Hell. But I know it's neither. It is really called the Everneath, and it's not a place for the dead. It's a place for the Everliving-beings who have discovered the secret to eternal life. it's a place for their Forfeits-the humans who give up everything to nourish the Everliving. It's the world caught between this one and the next, a layer between Earth and Hell. I know because I was a Forfeit. I would give anything to change this.
