KINDLE Masue of the Red Death

Masue of the Red DeathEverything is the Red eBook #8608 in ruinsA devastating plague has decimated the population and those who are left live in fear of catching it as the city crumbles around themSo what does Araby Worth have to live forNights in the D Ah steampunk libertines Who'd have thought they'd be so appealing Books that are heavily influenced by classic stories are always tricky particularly when it's as ambitious an undertaking as a story inspired by the Edgar Allan Poe classic I loved the lavish setting and moodiness of the original story so I had my doubts that anything could come close to capturing its crazy vibe But somehow Bethany Griffin has managed to create a very similarly dark extravagant feeling in her gothic adaptation which is a surprisingly compelling readSeventeen year old Araby Worth lives in a world devastated by plague Haunted by the death of her twin brother Finn she and her friend April spend their nights attending opulent club parties trying to lose themselves in pleasure so they can forget the what's going on around them In this atmosphere of dissipation and discontent she meets the reckless Elliott the nephew of the mad Prince Prospero who controls the city and Will a boy who works at the Debauchery Club who is desperately trying to take care of his little brother and sister Through her association with them she is shaken out of her numb acceptance of the world she lives in and learns that she just might hold the key to saving countless livesI fully admit that my overall liking for the book is fairly reliant upon the extravagant world that the author created but that's not necessarily a bad thing when it's such an important part of adapting Poe I was mesmerized by the visuals of porcelain masks that protect the wealthy from the contamination which were invented by Araby's scientist father; disease carrying bats; zeppelins in the sky; nights of debauchery; tattered velvet dresses; the threat of death by crocodile I also liked the central story line involving a plan to steal blueprints for the masks so they might be distributed to the poor and the romance had enough substance to keep me interested tooThings that should have driven me crazy but didn't first person present tense; a love triangle mostly because it keeps you guessing for the most part and doesn't always go the expected route; recreational drug use because it fits in with the story; modern slang mixed in with a historical ish style; the vow Araby takes to avoid all pleasures that Finn will never get to experience I do wish that we'd gotten a little further along in the central plot to undermine Prince Prospero however as well as in Araby's relationships withwell everyone since it seems as though there is a lot of buildup and then the book ends just as things are really starting to get interesting And I wish that the choice Araby makes towards the end was a little meaningful view spoilersince I was never really all that interested in April hide spoiler

FREE MOBI ✓ DOC Masue of the Red Death 9780062107794 ☆ [PDF / Epub] ☆ Masue of the Red Death By Bethany Griffin – Everything is in ruinsA devastating plague has decimated the population and those who are left live in fear of catching it as the city crumbles around themSo what does Araby WortEbauchery Club beautiful dresses glittery makeup and tantalizing ways to forget it allBut in the depths of the club in the depths of her own despair Araby will find than oblivion She will find Will the terribly handsome proprietor Masue of the Red Death has been my most anticipated book of the year since I discovered it last September I was obviously first attracted to it by its cover followed by its premise that talks of a gothic setting a plague apocalypse and a Debauchery club need I say As far as steampunk novels go this is easily my favorite I absolutely loved the atmosphere throughout the story The ruined city the dangers in the streets the masks the disease; it's dark and it's dreary with intricate details that had me truly envisioning this world in disrepair full of mortality The always present danger of this easily contracted death is palpable It gave me shivers and made me cringe Bethany clearly did not falter in her world building Its unwavering somber ambiance constantly propels us in a dying world so different from our own yet frighteningly not inconceivable Inside this disintegrating world lives Araby Living with the guilt of losing her twin brother she's dealing with her grief in form of punishment by not experiencing life to its fullest Or at least nothing Finn didn't get the chance to This to me was incredibly sad I felt sorry for her especially because she is blinded by her despair; incapacitated However when she meets Will with his gorgeous looks and Elliott with his master plans things start to improve Both of these guys are full of charm; even through my misgivings I kept a liking for both of them Their vast differences make them both terribly appealing while their intentions left me with unabated curiosity and doubtI would not consider this a very fast paced book Nevertheless the prose kept me completely mesmerized along with the vastly detailed world and likeable characters The writing is noticeably elegant; the beautiful flow creates an experience where a fast pace is not necessary to enjoy its execution But I still wouldn't have minded digging a little deeper inside the fundamental plot line instead of only getting twists albeit fascinating that lead to a big foreshadowing of what's to comeSince I haven't read Edgar Allen Poe's original work I can't comment on the comparison but I was positively impressed with Bethany Griffin's Masue of the Red Death an exuisitely woven tale both lavish and ominous For of my reviews visit my blog at Xpresso Reads
