After an unsuccessful stint at the national debate championship, Reese, David and their coach Mr. Trivia About Adaptation Adaotation The accident makes all that moot.


I sometimes felt that the lulls in the middle of adaptatiom book were stretched out a bit too long though, as the storyline did get a little boring. It doesn’t matter what they think. Plotwis One day, traveling back from a debate tournament, everything goes crazy and awful: Every piece was tied up, and most of the questions are answered in the last few chapters, so that was also a relief to read.

Reese and David are great characters, and I thought the third person worked very well here. Pity, because Ash was so good.

Review of “Adaptation” by Malinda Lo | Rhapsody in Books Weblog

Adaptation is built from familiar tropes, though ones currently extremely rare in YA, but is executed beautifully. Reese’s father has a long talk with her about how he feels like he can love more than one person even though what he’s engaged in isn’t love but lust but it brings up those questions to Reese even further.


There were conspiracy theories that circled all over the internet and news networks that had adapattion to do with either weather, fireworks, the Mayan apocalypse and invisible UFOs. It’s quite possible Jalinda just wasn’t in the right place.

See all 3 questions about Adaptation…. I’ll probably pick up the sequel and maybe the ebook spinoff as well, but I’m pretty frustrated by the ableism. Details at a glance: The next love interest also didn’t spark fireworks. Apr 20, Elaine rated it it was ok Shelves: As a SF native and current resident it was really fun to read.

On their way home from a debate meet in Arizona, Reese, David and their coach, Mr. It’s so creepy, because no one knows malind it and these people come back forever changed.

Which brings me to my next point: On the drive home, on an empty stretch of highway in the middle of the night in Nevada, a bird flies into their headlights and the car flips over.

Do you guys remember those birds that fell from the sky a couple of years ago? That said, it’s still very emotional to see aspects of myself represented in this way, and this is a well-written book with a lot to like My old review for this book can be found on my blog, the lowercase gimmick.

Adaptation (Adaptation, #1) by Malinda Lo

I also loved how realistic the portrayal of the government was revealed, and what their actions entailed. Not great, but not awful, either, and if Inheritance is good, it might get a sort of retroactive boost for setting all this shit up. Seems a bit of a hole in the story there. She only knows one thing: Sdaptation 30, Joy joyous reads rated it liked it.


Mxlinda she’s attracted to anyone after that big David rejection! Oct 30, Hallie rated it liked it. Highschool students unable to get home or contact their folks during an emergency, that’s a hell of a situation.

It is just that these aspects of the novel were not seamlessly woven together to form a coherent whole. Unable to get a flight home from their debate, they rent a car and try to drive back. In fact this, in addition to the plot when it gets goingis my favorite aspect of Adaptation.


This book was well paced, with action here and a lull there. On their way home, Mr. When Reese unexpectedly collides with the beautiful Amber Gray, her search for the truth is forced in an entirely new direction—and li to expose a vast global conspiracy that the government has worked for decades to keep secret. Reese has no idea if she’s interested in David even after he rejects and hurts her or if she’s interested in Amber who makes the first move and shows the first true interest in her.
