The Conspiracy of Us- SPOILERS

This book was a book that a group of us readers from PageHabit met and agreed to read together for the month of July. I was very hesitant to read this book, due to the fact that it was a Young Adult Novel. Now, I don’t have a problem with Young Adult books as a whole, but it makes it a lot harder for me to get into the protagonist’s mind when I am NOT as young as her.

For one, Avery was/is very gullible, to leave her home, at the age of 15, to travel across the world with complete strangers is something that I could not believe. I thought it was irresponsible and stupid, quite frankly. As Stellan points out when they are on the plane leaving for France.

I also HATE love triangles. The whole tenson between Avery, Jack, and Stellan is an old troupe that I would love to see put to rest. I am tired of seeing love triangles in all of the genres. This is not how life is. For those reading this SPOILER review, I know that books are supposed to take you out of the realm of reality and into a fictional world, but I just couldn’t.

Also, that quasi semi-sex scene in the book with Avery and Jack, was ridiculous and I just didn’t believe it was right. There are teeenagers that are going to read this book and think that this is okay. They have known each other for a couple of days and already they are in bed with each other. I really feel like if these characters were 5 or 10 years older I would have been able to stand a lot more of these plot holes.

As for those few things that I did not like about the book, I did find the premise and plot extrememly interesting. I loved the history of Alexander the Great and the 12 families. I really wanted to know more about. I want know about the crypt and the treasure. It’s the mystery that got my through the book. The wanting to know what happened.

I haven’t made up my mind as to whether or not I want to read the second book, because the first one leaves off in a cliff hanger. I am going to have to wait it out a few days and see how I feel about it. I just finished the book 5 minutes ago and I felt like I needed to write a review on this. This is the first review that I have written about in length.

Prostho Plus Review

Hello fellow readers! Starting this year I FINALLY  started the book club that I have always wanted to start. I call the bookclub “A Novel Idea”. I know, I know, not orignal, but it was punny. You will soon find that I have a small addiction to punny titles and jokes. I can’t help it. It makes me giggle.

ProsthoProstho Plus Plus By: Piers Anthony

For the 6th book that was picked for this year, I couldn’t be happier with it. Prostho Plus starts out with the everyday life of a prothodontist named Dr. Dillingham and his dental assistant Judy Gallad. Suddenly Dr. Dillingham has a new and interesting client show up at his practice. Someone from not just another country, but from another planet.

Soon he is being forced to perform surgery on an alien from the galaxy. Dr. Dillingham does such an amazing job on the stranger from outer space that he is whisked away to explore the extraterrestrial mouths of the glaxay. From the water world of Gleep to an all machine world and meeting the Jann, the robot that has vowed to be the one to kill Dillingham. Dr. Dillingham ends up being in line to be the Director of the School of Prosthodontics.

This book also follows the adventure that Judy Gallad goes through in order to find her passion and her place in the world….or is it galaxy? Judy Gallad becomes an outcast as a Dental Assistant due to the disappearance of Dr. Dillingham. She answers an ad in the newspaper about needing a dental assistant. Little did she know that she would be whisked off of not only her feet, but off Earth to start her own adventure in the galaxy. Her main goal? To find Dr. Dillingham. She is whisked to the water world of Gleep and through happenstance meetings with others ends up on the world of the Butterflies Lepidops, where something climatic happens!

Overall this is a fantastic book. Filled with humor, space travel, and dentistry. I was shockingly surprised when I started this book. I didn’t think that it was going to be such an entertaining read. I highly recommend this book!
