he's learning her power, which was interesting to watch but also a bit boring. She also just followed along with whatever Derek told her to do. Which kind of pissed me off beyond belief. I don't care how much more I like Derek than Simon, if anyone (girl or guy) talked to me that way I'd be gone.
I can't work up the energy to care about him at all.
most complex character in the book. Complexity is good. But it was almost like he was totally bipolar. He was always either really nice or really mean. There was very little in-between with him. And, while entertaining to read, is worrisome. Derek treated everyone very poorly but they all just brushed it off as, "He's only mean sometimes because he's protecting us." Mean is mean, people. That's almost the equivalent of saying, "He only hits me sometimes when he's mad." Either way it's not a good thing and you shouldn't be around it.
A couple of times Tori accuses Chloe of being a damsel in distress and the guys being her heroes all the time. Which is completely accurate. I respect that Armstrong acknowledged the problem but I expected her to then correct the problem. Which she didn't. Chloe remained a bit pathetic and helpless. *sigh*
