Reflective Essay on "Crescendo" by Becca Fitzpatrick

Extracts from this document...


Kimberly Maris Professor Riley Reading 090 11\25\2012 Reflective Essay on Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick A few years ago I found a book called Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick and I loved it, I couldn?t put it down. After that I found out that it was going to have a sequel. After waiting almost a year for it to be realized and I bought it. Fitzpatrick makes this book a third person view following Nora around in her life again, the same point of view as her first book. Since reading it I have been entertained and a bit disappointed. Yes Fitzpatrick has brought back the action, drama, and mystery to the book to make it entertaining, but she did not give the characters a tune up like she should have and she made it to complicated. ...read more.


We figured this out last book can we move on please. But now it gets interesting. We find out who killed Nora?s father and why. It?s because she is the daughter\ decedent to Barnabas. We also catch up in the hunt the book of Enoch, and now Nora has people trying to kill her because she knows too much about her father?s death. Also an awesome cliff hanger, who killed Nora?s best friend Chauncey Langeais? In My opinion only two things really got on my nerves throughout the book but one was also a good thing. Number one, why did she make this story so complicated? I was looking for a nice we find out why and who, Nora and pat get married and have babies. ...read more.


She makes mistakes and it takes her awhile to figure out how to do what she needs to do. It?s refreshing to see the author just didn?t drop the answer into her lap and say ta da. What saved this book is the epic conclusion and patch. As I was reading it even though he wasn?t in the story much, he was as attractive as he was in the first book. I guess it?s also a downer since he wasn?t in the book as much as he should be but it wasn?t a major disappointment. When he was there he made himself known. Also the conclusion I was happy to see an open ending and I?m hoping to see another book in this series. In the end it was an ok book not as great as I was hoping for. In my opinion Hush Hush was better. ...read more.

    Characterisation is an important aspect of "Border Crossing" as the reader is often and hesitantly shown the character of Danny in an innocent and attractive light.
