Writer Musings: Bliss by Lauren Myracle
It also had way too much happening in the plot. There was a scandalous interracial relationship, a ghost story, a possession, kyracle culture, news of the Manson killings in CA, and a girl trying to establish a relationship with her cold grandmother.
Any one of these could have been a story all on its own myravle been really well written by Myracle. I just felt that in putting all of these plots together, it was almost as if Myracle was trying to create the oddest book she could.
Because there was so much going on, it was hard to connect with any one character. Sandy was somewhat developed, but it didn’t feel like Sarah was developed well. Throughout the book Sarah was the popular girl who couldn’t be bothered by others.
Near the end, Myracle tries to change that; by that point, I was already feeling the blids was in need of serious editing. Bliss was a great character and her myracld at the commune was one that could have been a book on its own as well. I felt like readers were hit over the head with this odd ghost story, when the book could have just as well been as creepy being about a girl coming from a hippie commune and following her as she navigates a consumer driven culture in the racist south.
I mean, one of the myrscle characters had a father who was in the Klan and that really didn’t come in to play at all until the end. It’s and Bliss is going to a regular school for the first time.
The freshman has been living on a commune, something completely exotic to her new Crestview friends’ imaginings. As Bliss settles into a “normal” teen life, she begins to notice something strange at Crestview, an ominous feeling and a wicked voice that hangs around one building in particular.
Bliss soon learns that Crestview is home to its very own ghost, a ghost that has the power to influence some of the impressionable teens laursn campus. This is teen horror in every way. There are some truly uncomfortable and hair raising moments in the story. To top it off, Myracle sets the tale around the Manson murders that occurred that same year, throwing in actual quotes from the trial to set the tone.
BLISS is a quick and creepy tale. A satisfyingly creepy read that left me feeling scared a good thirty minutes after I finished it. I’ll admit the ending is a little weak, but from other reviews I learned it’s supposed to be a prequel to another of Myracle’s books. If angry ghosts and the s appeal to you, it’s well-worth picking up!
This was a purchase for my pre-teen lquren who is an avid reader. It was recommended to her by a middle school teacher. She couldn’t put it down. The booked shipped fast and I recieved it very quickly. I thought I was just getting a regular copy, but pauren I got a personal autographed copy! How cool is that?! I decided to buy this book because my mom checked it out from the library for me and now im hooked!
I have also enjoyed the TTYL series as well. I think the next book I may purchse is Shine. The storyline built to a great level of suspense, then it just dissipated.
Great book from beginning to end. Could not put it down. I definitely recommend it to all avid readers! See all 44 reviews. There’s a problem loading this menu right now.
