    Perfect Fifths Comment

    1. What a disappointment.Perfect Fifths basically reads like a Fanfic A Fanfic for those who didn t like the ending of book 4.In my opinion, this book was completely unnecessary and I think the author secretely thought so, too, seeing as she couldn t even come up with a real story One third of the book consists of weird poems or dialogues in the fashion of Pause Have you Googled me Pause No Not once No Pause Way to come up with the required number of pagesTo everyone who contemplates reading this s [...]


    2. I finally finished this series, and my overwhelming feeling is that I m SO glad I don t have to read any of these books I enjoyed the first 3, but these last two books were awful to get through.This book felt so unnecessary and very much like an afterthought view spoiler I don t know if McCafferty regretted the ending to book 4 but this book undid everything book 4 worked to establish I can understand Jessica and Marcus needing some time apart to truly work things out and be together in the end [...]


    3. It pains me to rate this book so low because the rest of the series was so good This last book though seemed like an afterthought, a way to tack on a nice, pat, happy ending despite the fact that these characters have grown up and moved on But even if the premise of this book which is really just a alternate ending to the fourth book in the series was entirely plausible there were a few other things I just couldn t get over First there was the annoying critical theory speak that plagues the spee [...]


    4. It s been three years since Jessica refused Marcus marriage proposal, and both of them have moved on with their lives Jessica now works for the Do Better High School Storytellers Project, traveling across the country to work for ten weeks with groups of girls on finding a voice through writing She has even found a mini me in the dregs of Pineville, a cynical teenager with the unfortunate name of Sunny Dae, who gives Jessica meaning to her work Meanwhile, Marcus has embraced college life, immersi [...]


    5. I d like to preface this review with two things First off, I have never felt compelled to write a book review until now Secondly, the phrase chick lit is enough to make me run for the hills, as 99% of the books in this literary genre are at best cloyingly cliche, and at worst insultingly stupid.This series, however, changed my life.Shortly before Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows came out, there were a bunch of articles floating around about readers possibly experiencing depression after the [...]


    6. I guess one way to end the Jessica Darling series with a bang is to make your readers never want to hear from her or Marcus a.k.a Edward Cullen on a yoga bender ever again It s laughable how many times McCafferty talks about how sexy and fuckable Marcus is in the span of only some 300 pages I felt like she was channelling StephEnie Meyer in a major way, especially when I finally finished and flipped to the back cover flap to the author s pic surprise She looks like a description of Jessica Darli [...]


    7. My advice to those who want to read the final installment of Megan McCafferty s Jessica Darling series Don t.Why so harsh you may ask It s just one book and you can be satisfied knowing the ending, right This book was so incredibly painful to get through I thought it was bad enough that in Fourth Comings Jessica wrote to Marcus instead of for herself, changing the whole dynamic and dulling the clever wit into purple prose Here, McCafferty employs so many writing gimmicks it is hard to stay focu [...]


    8. I ll give it a 3 because i love this series and it really wasn t that bad.BUTi was pretty disappinted with Perfect Fifths.First of all, i hated the third person narrative i wanted to be comforted by Jessica s perspective Even splitting the book with chapters Marcus wrote would have been better But reading this in third person i just felt disconnected and confused I kept thinking the 3rd person was just an intro and i waiiitteed for it to switch to 1st Their wasn t even a letter or anything to wa [...]


    9. She wakes up, bleary eyed, at 6 30AM She has known about this gig, singing an opera for an elementary school, for several weeks She stumbles to the bathroom and is surprised, when she sees her reflection, to find she still is wearing barrettes in her hair from the day before She had planned on going to bed at a decent hour to make today s early wake up as painless as possible What she hadn t planned on was receiving her copy of Perfect Fifths yesterday All day at work the book with its vibrant p [...]


    10. so disappointing i can t even i wish it had ended with the fourth book i mean, i m glad to hear what jessica is doing, i m glad she grew up i don t really care about marcus, but i liked my imagination better.


    11. and so we have come to our conclusion honestly, i was braced for the worst i know a lot of people took issue with the 50 pages of nuthin but dialogue followed by a series of suggestive haiku ingat actually didn t bother me i ve been calling for communication between the star crossed pair since book three and the poem thing, well, i ve done shit like that, so it didn t strike me as particularly odd or out of place you know what was barry frickin manilow i get that he, or specifically his music, [...]


    12. The Jessica Darling series began with two stellar books Then came the letdown of books three and four With this final installment, I wanted a return to the simple hilarity of Sloppy Firsts I wanted our MC to be redeemed To show us how much she s grown, to address issues never really addressed before, and give me the happy ending I invested fifty dollars in reading.Unfortunately, McCafferty decided against giving me the satisfaction Abandoning the diary form narrative of the first four books, we [...]


    13. There was nothing good to say about this book I m literally going to pretend it s not even apart of the series I love this series, it s very dear to me This book did nothing for me It took place within a few hours and hours at an airport and is mostly from Marcus POV It was NOT the ending that i wanted for this series also it was a supper short book again there is nothing about this book made me happy.


    14. At this point, the only option left for me is to take every single series trilogy duology finale and dump it into a giant cardboard box, tightly wrapped with duct tape, haul it into my attic and then write Do Not Open Until 2014 on it Quite simply put, this year is just not my year for series conclusion I have yet to read a satisfying end to a series I have stuck with and loved and while Perfect Fifths may be the best series finale I read this year, that really isn t saying a whole lot Unfortuna [...]


    15. This book was really, really the Perfect Fifth The relationship between Marcus and Jessica culminates in this fifth instalment and last of the series I ve read it in less than 24 hours I just couldn t stop reading it once I started it Looking back, I now understand the geniousness in these books Everything is perfectly orchestrated and this last book couldn t be perfect.Jessica is all grown up and her development as a character is wonderful It goes to show that we can learn from our mistakes an [...]


    16. maybe i m a bad jessica darling fan but this novel wasn t what i ve come to expect from the series something was missing i don t know if it s the fact the time was so compartmentalized or that it was all based on this interaction with marcus it just wasn t all there i missed jessica s snarkiness and humor there were glimpses of it but not to the extent of the past four books still, i enjoyed revisiting with these characters and am holding out hope for a sixth in the series although perfect fifth [...]


    17. There s grabby hands It was Jessica and Marcus, which made it fun It was unnecessary, which made it a little obnoxious It was partially in haiku, which made it pretentious It was missing Percy and Bridget, which was a problem for me.Any Jessica Darling is a good thing, but this series should have ended with Fourth Comings.


    18. Title Perfect FifthsAuthor Megan McCaffertyGenre Fiction, Chick LitRating D Abbreviated Summary This book is the conclusion of the Jessica Darling Series my review of books one through four is here and tells of one 18 hour period that occurs three years after Jessica says she won t marry Marcus Flutie because she s clinically insane in my opinion and Marcus writes her a letter that says whatever because he s completely fictional Jessica and Marcus quite literally run into one another in the airp [...]


    19. I m having a really hard time deciding what I actually think about this book I guess it would help me to know what Megan McCafferty actually thinks about this book The series, though, as I realized when I finished the last book, is collectively the novel I have always wanted to read but never found anywhere else I would have such a hard time defining this as chick lit because it s always been so smart, so much intelligent than your average chick lit But this last book, to me, could be read as a [...]


    20. The final book in the Jessica Darling series was and it pains me to say this because the rest of the series was so good just absolute crap I feel like I m betraying the series by saying this, but I was so disappointed The book is Jessica rushing to get to the airport to make it in time for her friend s wedding, but she misses her plane and is waiting around the airport in case she can get on another flight Then the next 200 PAGES is just her and Marcus who just happened to be there conversing ab [...]


    21. I had a lot of problems with this final book in the Jessica Darling series First, the format change After structuring the narrative in the form of journal entries from Jessica s point of view for the first four books, suddenly we get an omniscient narrator who sees into the minds of both Jessica and Marcus And, for me, Marcus s inner thoughts did not really match the character he was in the first 4 books Second, the whole Sunny Dae character just wasn t doing it for me While Marcus s resistance [...]


    22. I was disappointed in the changed format, as I much preferred being privy to Jessica s neurotic, snobbish, and judgmental inner voice She is one witty wench and I was saddened to see her words rather than read her thoughts Nonetheless, I m glad that the series concluded in the manner that it did, that there is some semblance of direction for our choosy heroine and that she has mind f ck Flutie to keep her company along the way.



    23. See full review for Perfect Fifths at toomanybooksnotenoughshelves.What The Hell No seriously What the hell This book was an absolute shit storm from start to finish None of the characters that I have grown to know and love were present in this book Instead you have these faux characters I didn t recognize Marcus at all Same for Jessica Darling They were acting extremely strange even for the circumstances Jessica was a nervous wreck with some kind of mystery going on that wasn t fully explained [...]


    24. The Jessica Darling series has swept teens across the country and has a devoted, almost cult, obsession within this community In some ways I can understand this phenomenon The first book was decent, nothing substantial just a small peak at what s to come for these two star crossed lovers The second was devoured Ate it once, ate it twice, and I just could not stop The third and fourth part was rather dull, total build up Marcus almost completely left and we were just left with Jessica I mean, I w [...]


    25. And now finally, we come to the fifth and final book in Megan McCafferty s Jessica Darling series Jessica hasn t seen or heard from Marcus Flutie after finally breaking things off three years earlier when he asked her to marry him As she is hurrying to catch a flight for Bridget and Percy s wedding , Jessica literally runs smack into Marcus Utterly unprepared for any such meeting, Jessica and Marcus both find themselves questioning their past relationship and if fate truly had a hand in bringing [...]


    26. This book was a big disappointment I have read the first two books at least five times each and I was delighted yet uneasy when two sequels followed I thought the third book was pretty bad and even that I re read , but the fourth was at least somewhat back on track Even with the poor reviews I read about this one, I decided to give it a try, because I needed something to read on an airplane and figured, how bad could it really be Well, pretty bad Basically, this is pointless chick lit I don t ev [...]


    27. I d read the first four books about Jessica Darling and her life in high school college, and while I enjoyed them, I wasn t really sure I wanted to read this last book It s been quite a while since I read the fourth book, and if my memory serves correctly, I wasn t all that into it it felt a bit tired, like we d been there and done that However, I thought I owed it to myself to at least attempt to finish the series, as so many authors these days seem to keep them going and going and going sort o [...]

    29. I was unsure what to expect, coming into this book It s the last book in the Jessica Darling series a series in which I loved the first two books, heartily recommending them and gifting them to everyone I know, hated the third book, and felt meh about the fourth I was afraid this final installment would underwhelm me again and make me even sure of my belief that the series should have ended with only two books My problems with the 3rd and 4th books stemmed from their lack of authenticity, ridic [...]
