Review- Secret Society by Tom Dolby


Title: Secret Society

Author: Tom Dolby

Published by: HarperTeen

Pages: 352

My thoughts:

Since I have been reading fantasy book after fantasy book, Secret Society was a welcomed change. I enjoyed every part of this book: the streets of New York, the underground clubs, the indie clothing stores and a secret society that four teenagers joined and they have no idea why. The only thing they know is that everything that happens with the society must be kept an absolute secret. They're not supposed to even tell their parents! It's great that the story is never focused around one character, but the reader is given perspective into each of the character's lives.

After the four main characters join this secret society, amazing things begin happening in their lives. But at what price is their success given and do they truly know what is expected of them?Not only do the characters want to know who and what is behind this whole secret society, but so do I!! Who are the other, older members and how did these teenagers get chosen? And how is it possible that suddenly everyone knows who they are?? Is it possible that the society is behind Patch's mother's mental illness? It's all so crazy and cryptic! This book left me with so many questions and so little answers. I'm just hoping with all my heart that theres going to be a sequel.

Nice review! I've heard some not-too-positive reviews of this one, but I guess I'll have to look into it again. It definitely sounds intense, secretive, and fast-paced! :)

This sounds like a fantastic book. It sounds like gossip girl, but yet different. Need to read this!

Nice review! Glad to see I wasn't the only one that was left with questions...and it was an enjoyable read. My only thing was that I wish the Egyptian part of it was explored a bit more. Cie la vie! Thanks for sharing....and happy reading! =0)
