Review: Forever by Maggie Stiefvater
Forever is the third book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater. It follows Shiver and Linger.
I’m not sure what my problem was with this book. I liked it, I really did. I liked the characters better than I did in Linger – one that I was unsure of before became the star of the book for me. I thought the plot was good, if the ending a bit anti-climatic. But for some reason it just took me forever to get through this book. I wonder if the problem was that I listened to the audiobook, and they used a different actor for each voice (one of which was Maggie Stiefvater for Shelby’s voice in the prologue. That was cool!). Perhaps that made it seem disjointed? I don’t know. I just know that I normally listen to audiobooks while I’m exercising and doing housework. And if I really am loving the book I’ll find every opportunity to listen to it besides. That didn’t happen this time.
However, I do recommend this book and the series. The idea is fun, the characters are fun, and the plot is interesting and develops at a good pace. I absolutely loved Shiver, and enjoyed both Linger and Forever.
