#Book #Review – The Unbecoming Of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1)The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So here it all began. A friend of mine advised me to read this book and you know, every person’s taste is different, but I said ok. I bought the book without knowing what the story was about. Verdict? I DEVOURED IT.

The writing blew my mind. It starts fast and furious, the first paragraph takes you right down a road you can’t stop following until the very end, and when you finally reach the end, you simply want more. I almost wished I didn’t finish the book so the pleasure could last forever, and I want to start the book all over again and pretend it’s my first time reading it.

The MC is brilliant. Mara Dyer plays the perfect troubled teenager who isn’t obnoxious and gets under your skin, quite on the contrary, she invites you and makes you feel perfectly at home in her disturbed reality. High school awkward moments, first crush, first love, first everything but not the way you think. Mara doesn’t depict the picture of a character you’ve seen somewhere else. She’s unique in her own insanity, or should I say extraordinary ability to control life and death? Her boyfriend Noah struck me in awe from beginning to end. First he’s stunning. He’s smart, he’s handsome, he’s sexy, and he’s a gentleman. Second, he has powers too. Third, he’s simply irresistible. Nobody will tell you Noah sucks. Oh no, he doesn’t suck.

What about the plot? After a tragic event involving the death of her friends, Mara suffers from PTSD and her family decides to move from RI to Florida. New environment, new school, new life… Despite the move, Mara’s still haunted by her past. She needs to find answers in order to stop experiencing awful visions and hallucinations. She sees dead people everywhere. But mostly? Not only does she have nightmares, but she also realizes she’s a murderer. Noah falls head over heels for her and tries to help her the best he can, but will Mara follow his advice and resist the urge to use her evil powers?

Read this book. You’ll love it.
