I can’t stress enough how obsessed I
was am with Veronica Mars. She is someone that I just feel is a true female role model that young girls should look up to, instead of like you know, Kim Kardashian
She is smart, cute, whitty, no-nonsense and went to law school. She uses rational thought to solve problems, she is charming… I mean she is just awesome.
I have been itching to read this since I finished book 1. That being said thank you to the publisher for approving my ARC on Netgalley.
The following review is my own. This review is going to be spoiler free, HOWEVER I am assuming you have watched the TV show. Proceed with caution if you have not watched the show as there is a major plot spoiler of the show in this review.
First let me say that I read a lot, and I have read a lot of books that the author was a writer for a TV show and quite frankly wrote a crap book.
This is not the case with Rob Thomas, every word that man writes paints the perfect picture and truly makes me feel as if I am seeing the world of Neptune through Veronica’s eyes. I could picture the scene in my head, and that is one of the signs of a fantastic author in my opinion.
Before I started the book I was debating the topic of Duncan with my friend Ashley:
What happened to Duncan?
Did Veronica ever speak to Duncan since he ran of with his baby?
Are we ever going to hear from Duncan again?
Well only one of these questions was answered. No I will not tell you which. You want to read this book, believe me marshmallows.
That being said, after reading this book, I can almost say I feel that all my questions will be answered soon, if not the next book.
The plot was well paced and quickly developed, it had a few twist and turns, but there was a slight difference in this book. Veronica figured out who was raping the girls quickly but the catch was proving it.
Does she prove it? was there a twist at the end?
Well you will have to read the book silly.
Only one new character introduced in this book, every other character in the book has appeared in the series some how prior to this book.
That being said, I think the new character has a secret. A good one (I am channeling Lilly Kane here)
I am most certainly waiting for the next book and to see where this character goes, because she was well developed and we got a back story, that you know will come back into play in the future.
I am so grateful for Thomas, for writing these books, Veronica Mars WAS my college experience. The characters are lovable, I stalked the characters at comic con… I even tried to copy Veronica Mars wardrobe.
I apologize for nothing.
I am so happy this is the first book of 2015, and it will proudly sit on my Jen’s 2015 Favorites shelf all year.
