REVIEW BY PETER 8:3
Neptune’s Tears is a love story between the two main characters Zee McAdams and David Sutton but as many other love stories things don’t go quite to plan. It is based in the future, David is an Alien and Zee is a human empath who fall in love after meeting in A&E.
Zee McAdams is the main character and she falls in love with David Sutton. Throughout the story Zee becomes emotionally attached to David and soon can’t stop thinking about spending her life with him but there is a few difficulties along the way from terrorists to separation.
My favourite part of the book was when the two went on a date to an epic sounding cinema where the seats float and rotate around the screen. I enjoyed this part of the book because I could strongly visualise the scene.
My favourite character in the book was Mrs Heart who was one of Zees patients who gave her advice when she needed it and shared stories that you could visualise. I liked the character because she was kind and shared life advice with Zee.
I thought I would not like the book because of its genre (Romance) but I actually quite enjoyed the book because I thought it would be all Lovey Dovey but that wasn’t the case. It had quite a lot of action including bombs exploding.
There wasn’t anything I would change about the book because it Leeds you up to thinking something but then twists what happens suddenly and I quite liked the idea of that.
I probably would read the work of this Author again because it was well written and provided a good twist at the end and left the book on a cliff hanger so it could be continued. Neptune’s Tears keeps you wondering what happens and you start making things up in your head.
I would recommend this to others because I enjoyed the book and I think other people would enjoy the book as well. I think it suits the age group of 12-16.
Out of five I would give the book A solid 4 because I thoroughly enjoyed Neptune’s Tears.
