I read Blood and Chocolate when I was 14 but it s stayed with me since It was the first time a seemingly simple plot with overdone fictional monsters actually dealt with what it was to be human I hold much respect for Vivian the protagonist Yes she does stupid things But what teenager doesn t feel what she feels Are we all not trying to hide a part of ourselves from the world Don t we not fight with our parents and try to rebel for no real reason Do we not take simple comforts for all t I read Blood and Chocolate when I was 14 but it s stayed with me since It was the first time a seemingly simple plot with overdone fictional monsters actually dealt with what it was to be human I hold much respect for Vivian the protagonist Yes she does stupid things But what teenager doesn t feel what she feels Are we all not trying to hide a part of ourselves from the world Don t we not fight with our parents and try to rebel for no real reason Do we not take simple comforts for all they can serve us I loved that she wasn t skinny awkward or socially inept She had a family a close one She was a real beauty curvaceous andclassically female She was flawed in her self assurance which made her careless but she was still confident without being in denial of her situation As for the writing itself the book was a step up from Curtis Klause s The Silver Kiss It had its own sense of internal dialogue a way of connecting the protagonist s beliefs and the writing Yes it was awkward at times but it is not supposed to be our world It s Vivian s The thoughts of the characters wereeasily identifiable also Her previous work didn t have the same insight into the characters SPOILER My friends have criticized the ending for not fitting to their ideals of modern love but I personally loved it Why would she stay with someone that clearly couldn t handle her Gabriel loved her and watched out for her He forgave her for turning from the pack He was like her and valued her after all was done I think it s the instinct of the modern teen to go for the ill fated romances but I believe she deserved a man not a boy

This book is wrong on so many levels that I don t know where to start and I definitely don t think it belongs in the teen section of the bookstore Vivian the main character and narrator is far too calculating and sexualized for a 16 year old girl I don t care if she IS a werewolf She s also mean spirited and nasty and frankly I didn t find much about her to like for a good deal of the book which contains entirely too much sexuality and vulgarity With the exception of Aiden the human b This book is wrong on so many levels that I don t know where to start and I definitely don t think it belongs in the teen section of the bookstore Vivian the main character and narrator is far too calculating and sexualized for a 16 year old girl I don t care if she IS a werewolf She s also mean spirited and nasty and frankly I didn t find much about her to like for a good deal of the book which contains entirely too much sexuality and vulgarity With the exception of Aiden the human boy Vivian wants to bed every character in the book behaves like a rapaciously sex starved porn star locked permanently in his her 40 s Vivian seems to be intended as the young conscience of the book alone and confused and trying to find her way but she by and large fails miserably as when the chips are down and most of the time otherwise she is just as greedy and selfish as the rest of them I truly believe Annette Curtis Klause has some seriously distorted views of young love and the appropriateness of certain relationships The book takes a few interesting turns but for the most part I found it nothingthan a story of instant gratification run violently and horribly amok Not to mention the incredibly inappropriate relationship between Vivian and Gabriel the 24 year old head of her clan He spends most of the book bedding both Vivian s mother and another woman in the clan and leering lecherously after Vivian until with the book s resolution he finally makes her his permanent property with her happy acceptance It really skeezed me out and I can t tell you how shocked I was to google Klause this morning and find out the woman is not only a librarian who specializes in young adult fiction but is actually head of children s services at a Maryland community library Good GOD I would not want this woman recommending books to my children Nor will I recommend her books to my customers Blood and Chocolate is one of the worst written most misogynistic and wrong headed books I ve ever had the misfortune to read

Update In October I finished this book a third time Turns out this is one of those books that gets better with every read I m going to go ahead and up the rating to four stars Blood and Chocolate was a book that I didn t totally like the first time around I wasn t exactly sure how I felt about it to be honest It s well written but much darker than most YA fiction Overall I felt positive about the story even though I didn t uite care for the protagonist Vivian she comes across as slutt Update In October I finished this book a third time Turns out this is one of those books that gets better with every read I m going to go ahead and up the rating to four stars Blood and Chocolate was a book that I didn t totally like the first time around I wasn t exactly sure how I felt about it to be honest It s well written but much darker than most YA fiction Overall I felt positive about the story even though I didn t uite care for the protagonist Vivian she comes across as slutty and entirely too sure of herself Because Blood and Chocolate left me feeling so perplexed I needed to read it again which I did months later The second time I read it I finally understood why the main character was so sure of herself and overly sexed She s not entirely human a fact that I was aware of the first read through but I didn t really think aboutShe was raised to be comfortable with her sexuality but not necessarily in a dirty way just not in a human way And I realized she was so sure of herself because she grew up in the Alpha s household Just being daughter of the Alpha was a position that demanded respect and Vivian had been treated accordingly in fact until her father died the entire pack celebrated her birthdayThe thing is during my second read I realized I uite liked that Annette Curtis Klaus allowed her main character to suffer struggle To not get what she wanted when she wanted it Vivian so sexual and so sure of herself didn t understand love anythan your average teenager If anything she struggled with it with getting her heart brokenthan your average teen In fact she reacts in a downright scary mannerIn the end I came to the conclusion that I liked Blood and Chocolate because the main character gets over her heartbreak and even moves on It isn t often a YA novel takes this route which if you ask me is uite unfortunate though I digressVivian learns there isto love then physical attraction and or like mindedness And above all she learns to love and accept her whole self
