After reading a book, you always have one reaction that sort of eclipses the others. Mine was:...

Fury was a pretty good read. The characters were interesting, the plot was good, but...there seemed to be something lacking in it. See, the author describes the book as being more of a Greek Mythology type book, but that particular aspect didn't really show up until a good ways in the book.

I don't know what everyone else knows about The Furies, but here's what I know. The Furies are three girls who basically punish people for their wrong deeds. And they all have different strong points. One, deals with Jealousy, another anger, and the last death. In the novell, the three furies didn't seem to have a specific job.

Here are some points that I didn't really like. An issue I had with the book, was Em's parents. The girl gets into a car wreck and they let her go and drive again. My parents wouldn't have let me do it, but it makes sense. She gets into another car wreck, and then she says she's going out again. ARE THEY SERIOUS? Something is seriously wrong with that girl's car, and if I were her parents, I wouldn't have let her drive for A WHILE. And one of the main characters dies seemingly unnecessarily.

Things I did like about this book: definitely the cover. The cover catches your eye and makes you want to at least pick the book up and figure out what it's about. I also liked Emily. She made some decisions that we can all say that we wouldn't have done, but honestly, sometimes you can't tell when you're in the moment. Her relationship with Zach would have blindsided even the best of us. I think we could all tell that something was going to happen with JD, but it was played out better than I thought. .

Even if you don't know if you'll like the book, pick it up. It's pretty good. And there BETTER be a sequel because there were a lot of points that left me hanging.
