Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looooooooooove I was not expecting to be drawn into this story as much as I was. Sure, I loved the first book Shiver, but this was entirely different. I quickly became obsessed with the plot, the characters (both old and new), and the twists Stiefvater gave the reader. Hooooooooly. I think the reason why I liked this book at times even more than Shiver was because of the four perspectives rather than the usual two. In Linger, we got inside the minds and actions of Sam and Grace, naturally, but also Isabelle and Cole. Who, by the way, is undeniably attractive in that can’t-help-being-bad-because-I-can’t-help-myself way. Mmmmmm. Yes, I’m not ashamed to admit I just wanted his parts to keep going and going and going. He was definitely a refreshing character from the other three. But let me just say this: I’m glad I’ll be calling my future child Isabelle (hang on, hang on—I named her months before I read this series), because Isabelle is such a kick ass character, and yet not entirely immune to vulnerability. Sure, she can be a jerk, rude and unfriendly, but she grows so much in this series—but not so much that it seems unbelievable. (Don’t you hate when a character does a complete 180⁰ in a series, when you know that that just would never happen in real life? It would be like if Malfoy all of a sudden in the last book becomes Harry’s best friend. Wouldn’t happen.) So yes, I think I loved her character the most in this book and the next. While the sexual tension between Cole and Isabelle was great, it wasn’t entirely needed. The story would have been just fine without another parallel love story. But this is YA we’re talking about—sometimes I think YA authors forget life isn’t all about love for teenagers. But I enjoyed the fact that while this trilogy revolves around the connection between Sam and Grace, their romance almost took a back seat in this book to let other issues, like figuring out one’s future and becoming who you’re meant to be, be more predominant. I actually found Grace’s parents to be interesting in this book. Mainly because they were actually around. I thought it typical parent behaviour to be afraid of losing their child to adulthood. It’s normal for parents to hold onto the memory of their child as a young person, not fully realizing that their child is almost (or is) an adult who can make decisions of their own and can live a life they choose. Grace’s parents had left her alone for so many years because they knew she’d be there when they came back. But now with Sam in her life, they were losing that constant behaviour. Their perfect child was beginning to move on in her life, and they couldn’t come to terms with it. So instead of letting her go, which would have been natural for two parents who were rarely in her life to start with, they decided it was now or never to grab a hold of their child and be the parents they should have been years ago. And I hated them for it. But I could also see it from their point of view, which made it okay with me that Stiefvater threw them into the mix. The story itself was slower than Shiver, I’ll admit, but it wasn’t boring. It was like a tiny pause inbetween two heart-stopping stories (Shiver and Finale). The plot wasn’t altogether unpredictable, because I knew what would happen halfway through the book. But still, the last couple of chapters really caught me off guard and had me gasping for air up until the last page. And then I couldn’t speak for a good five minutes after that, freaking out in my mind. Fil can attest to that. But like always, the writing was flawless and beautiful and rich and delicate and inpiring all at once. Maggie Stiefvater is a writing goddess. It’s her words that really make this book (and the other two) really worth reading. Because if she didn’t write with such ease, Linger wouldn’t have been as good. Needless to say, after finishing the book, the next day I HAD to go out and buy Forever. Yes. This series is that good. To view more of my reviews, go here: http://booksteame.com/

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Will she or will she not?....follow Grace and the wolves to find out The story continues with Grace and Sam, then throw in Cole and Isabel for kicks. Will they make it or will they tear each other to shreds? Enjoyed this YA book with references to poetry and lyrics in an artistic way to present meaning and a little romance, but also reflection. As Sam figures out what he meant to do with his life and the pack's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from unable to put down!! I got shiver as a gift from my parents because they knew how much i loved twilight. When i read the back of the book, It sounded like another werewolf novel. It stayed on my shelves for a months until one day I decided to read it. I immediately fell in love with the wolves just like Grace did. I cheered for Grace's and Sam's relationship as it blossomed and bloomed into something amazing. I cried at the part where Grace and Sam say goodbye for what they thought would be forever. I went out the next day and bought linger. I liked how it focused on Isabel more. And how they added Cole who I believe will become a pivotal character in helping Grace become human again and keep Sam from changing into a wolf in the future. I hope that Isabel and Cole will get together. I got really angry when Grace's parents start to care about her now, just because she has Sam, when practically she has brought herself up. I can't wait to read Forever

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dragged I wanted to say that I really love these books. The first one was better than this one though. I felt like this book was a little bit too long when we all knew what was going to happen. I love the introduction of the new wole Cole St. Clare. I really like him. Other then that, nothing caught my attention of this book. The separation of Grace and Sam was sad. Their whole relationship is sad. I can't wait to read the third and last book to find out how it ends!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Romance Continues The romance continues. In Linger the story expands to spend more time with Isabel, whose brother had become a wolf, and Cole, who choose to be a wolf rather than die. For me, the romance took a back seat to the bigger issue of growing up and finding your way. As we each grow up we have to make choices. Do we follow our own path or do we listen to our parents and the others around us and follow their led and expectations. Similar to the wolves, do they blindly accept that the weather gets cold you become a wolf, or do you take Cole's lead and ask questions to really determine what is happening. Follow or lead, destiny or choice. This unabridged audio version was presented by Scholastic Audio, 10 hours 37 minutes. Read by: Jenna Lamia, Dan Bittner, Emma Galvin, and Pierce Cravens

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Once again, Maggie Stiefvater has written this book beautifully. There were many twists and turns and I couldn't put it down. For me, the book started when Sam was caught in Grace's bed. I definitely wasn't expecting that and I was sad when her parents kicked him out. I immediately fell in love with Cole and I liked that he was sort of intimate with Isabel except when he met Grace. I felt like they could be a great couple, even though Grace and Sam's relationship is intensely strong. I just wasn't sure if Cole was right; if Isabel had a crush on Sam because the author did mention some parts when Isabel would just stare at him. Also, when Grace would yell at her parents, I felt that she could have said more about what she was feeling with Sam instead of her parents not being there, since she was grounded because of Sam. Those were the only things that bothered me throughout the entire book, and I must say that the ending was a definite cliffhanger since I wasn't expecting that at all; I thought Grace would shift and that it was just taking time, I didn't know she was dying. Anyway, I absolutely loved this novel; it didn't disappoint me at all (at least not a lot) and cannot wait to read the next installment

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dragged my feet reading this When I bought the book, I did not read it for several months because I was not interested to read it yet. As I finally picked it up and bit the bullet, it was not a bad read. Certainly has a twist and new problems. I did fall in love with Cole...I would like to read more about him and his journey.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as great as Shiver but still good The first half of the story was slow which I didn't mind as much as I got to get reacquainted with Sam, Grace, and Isabel along with a new character, Cole. Sam and Grace have some great moments together and its easy to see how much they truly love each other. Along with Sam and Grace, Linger introduces two new POVs in Isabel and Cole. Cole in particular is such a refreshing character. I had so many questions about him and just wanted to learn everything about him. Initially, its pretty easy to figure out what's happening to Grace but when it actually does happen it still took me by surprise. I definitely can not wait for FOREVER. After everything that has happened to Sam and Grace in both Shiver and Linger...and especially what happened at the end of Linger I'm truly hoping they will get their happy ending.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Review of Linger by Maggie Stiefvater I have been waiting to read this book since I devoured the first novel in this series, Shiver. I was so impressed with the author's mature writing style and unique take on werewolves (shifters really) that I couldn't put that first book down until it was finished. I was nervous wondering if Linger could live up to the standards that Shiver had built up. The answer was yes. Hell yes. I was slightly disappointed to learn that the book would not be immediately available for Kobo.I am finding that usually one has to wait at least a week or more for newer books to be available for purchase. For some books this is fine, but for Linger it was not. I was actually quite surprised to see the hardcover edition available for purchase at Chapters earlier than the noted release date of July 20th. This made me ecstatic and I scooped it up eagerly on my weekly Saturday visit, lured in by its gently glowing green cover. I even had to buy myself a new wolf bookmark, slightly tinted green just for this particular book. Can you say OCD much? Upon opening the book as soon as I arrived home I was tickled pink (well green actually) to discover the text of the whole novel matched the lovely green colour of the cover. Something so small, yet so amazing I couldn't tear my eyes from the pages. (Luckily I didn't buy this on the Kobo as I would have missed that nifty little tidbit.) Once again, Stiefvater's writing creates images so vivid its more like watching a movie play inside my head than reading a book. I am a huge fan of her rotating first-person narration. The story just wouldn't be the same with any other narration technique. It can sometimes be a little disorienting shifting to another person's viewpoint in the middle of a chapter, but the characters are so clear you quickly pick up who is telling the story (together with the person's name being noted at the beginning of each new section). The only negative comment I have is the sense of the dreaded cliffhanger the reader is left with at the end of the novel. I notice more and more authors, especially YA authors, are using this to pull in their readers and leave them hanging with their tongues out for the next installment. I don't find this necessary at all. Shiver did not end this way and I was still so eager to get my claws into this book. In fact being left this way makes me more angry and less likely to want to read anything more by this author because I don't like the feeling of being held hostage. Vampire Academy's Richelle Mead has also recently jumped on this bandwagon (luckily only for her second to last book) and it drives me insane! But beyond all that I have to give credit where it is due. Maggie Stiefvater is a very talented writer who brings stories to life for her readers. I certainly do suggest reading this series to anyone who loves wolves, good young romance tales, and amazingly good writing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never a Happy Ending I quite enjoyed the sequel as there was more background knowledge about the shifting. I also liked how they were more perspectives, although it did make it harder to understand. Hopefully, Forever will be just as good and that there's more interactions with Cole. His character is interesting and did anyone pick up more between him and Grace?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from warwolfs omg i love this book better then the first i love how she got threw back as a kid from becommin a wolf and now in this one from her dad leaving her in the car and thinkin she killed off the wolf part but did not and that it is killing her and then cole turned her into a wolf and that sam stayed human so he could find a cure for the both of them

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better than the first. After reading all the reviews about how the first book was better I was pleasantly surprised when reading Linger. With the addition of Cole and Isabel as main characters the story came to life, Sam and Grace are so flat and uninteresting even when Grace is "rebelling" I reveled in the dynamic characters of Cole and Isabel. I also loved how they begin to scratch the surface of the whole werewolf "disease" I'm actually excited to see what Forever brings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't beat the first book yet still worth to read We are back in Mercy Falls with two additional characters to the book - Isabel and Cole. Though at first, I wasn't too pleased with reading two additional characters, it easily fit into the novel. Isabel who lost her brother and Cole who wants to loose himself in the world of wolves. I think there's going to be a development with these two characters. Sam and Grace on the other hand have new obstacles ahead of them. As Sam finally accepts that he won't turn into a wolf, Grace is feeling sick and she doesn't understand why, though after reading further, we know where it's going. I found this book to be slower than Shiver and the addition of two characters helped this book become better otherwise, it would have taken me longer to finish.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Linger by Maggie Stiefvater -- They thought that they were fixed. In a small town called Mercy Falls, Sam and Grace slip back in to the routine of a normal life. But something is wrong. Grace is developing migraines that she’s never had before, and there is a growing feeling that something inside her is trying to break through to the surface. Meanwhile Sam is left to watch over the pack of wolves, waiting for them to shift back into their human forms. Then – Cole, a new wolf enters their lives. As all of their worlds start to fall apart, only one certain thing remains…. but will it linger? -- Compared to the first one, which I read about two years ago… or something close to that, Linger is a little uneventful. I mean, the first one had a lot more going on, where this one was more dragged out, with less events that made you want to turn the page. It still kept me reading though, these series are interesting and I thought that adding Cole (a new character) really helped out with the plotline. Other than the fact that there wasn’t much going on, I think that this was a great transition story from Shiver, to the next book. If there is a next one anyways… there should be! I love the writing style used in this book, and the highlight of the book was the relationship that Cole and Isabel had. I think that those were the strongest points in Stiefvater’s writing. She really captured the real of those two characters, especially when they were together. I loved it. So, all in all, I give this one a 3.5 out of 5. Here is her website, http://maggiestiefvater.com/novels.php#wolves I see a cover for the third one, so there you have it! Later Cheese Graters, MRR

Rated 5 out of 5 by from one of the best books i've ever read! grace is getting sick, and only cole knows how to figure out why, linger was better than twilight to me, with crazy twists and turns on every page! sam is losing approval from mom and dad, but what is he supposed to do? just sit around and watch the love of his life suffer? when grace gets caught with sam in her bed, her parents mean trouble. grace is grounded and forbidden to see sam ever again! when grace sneeks off to fuffill sam's birthday gift, mom and dad decide to get home early, grace is still out and when dad sees her come home with the forbidden one, grace is in over her head. she knows she's in trouble. grace decides to run away, but when she does she starts throwing up blood and is rushed to the hospital . mom and dad find out she is there and dying, then it's up to cole to save the day, he finds out what is triggering it and how to save gace's life - to become a wolf again - since cole is the only one with "wolf venom" he is the only one who can save her and sam is forever grateful to cole, and beck for choosing cole, the only one with the answer. linger was by far my favourite of all books - besided harry potter and the deathly hallows - it left me stranded, craving more!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Amazing but also predictable (possible spoilers) I read this book so fast. The writing is amazing! I loved all the different POVs except that it got confusing sometimes because it changed so often that i had to flip back to see who was talking. Also, it wasnt as exciting as shiver.. I already predicted the ending from the very beginning, but kept reading just in case there was a twist like shiver. There was wasnt, The book was great but the ending dissappointed me.

Sam is well... amazing! Good Luck Grace!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from looooved it! When I first picked up Shiver, I hadn't expected it to be a good book. To my surpise it had a good ending and always kept me on edge. When Linger came out I got it as soon as I can and yet again it was an AMAZING book. Each chapter was usually someone else's point of view. It was nice to experience Cole's life or Isabella's as well. Linger was well written and ended off in a cliff hanger that keeps you guessing until the next book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing, but CliffHanging ending This book was amazing! It's ending was a cliffhanger but besides that, it was interesting, and it just intruiged me to the end! I can't wait for the last book to come out in 2011! :)
Date published: 2010-08-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't Have Asked For a Better Sequel! After reading Shiver and literally going crazy at the cliffhanger that ended it, I was so anxious for this to hit the shelves. I definitely had high expectations, but Stiefvater managed to surpass them with her beautiful writing, and her spectacular imagination behind this heartbreaking series. I even managed to love the characters even more after reading this, which I didn't think was possible! Sam is just AH-MAZING! He's an all around heartwarming character with a personality and heart leaving you wanting to reach into the book and pull him out! Grace always amazes me with her ability to be herself in tough times. She's a great, great character with a heart of gold! I seriously love this series, and this sequel was flat out amazing. The pages unfold like a scenery, with dialogue and characters that leave you hooked. Linger had new twists, characters, but kept the same unbelieveable romance that left many, including myself, hooked in Shiver. Sam finally has Grace, and finally. . . Grace has Sam. It looks like the cure worked, and everything is going to be as they wished. Sam is human; a thought that always catches him off guard. He's doing everything he's ever dreamed of; he spends his days working at a book store, and every moment he can with Grace, they savour every moment together. They can both start to think of a future; College floats around in Grace's mind, but she wants to go and still have Sam with her. It looks like it'll be a bright future, where anything is possible as long as they have eachother. The forest is still filled with wolves and it looks like two more enter the pack with a few secrets. Cole is the new wolf who decided on this new life, he thought being a wolf as a way to escape; escape himself, his family, his life, and his name. He wants to rid himself as 'Cole', though, shifting isn't easy for him, and he's left with alternative thoughts to end everything. Isabel is still . . . Isabel. She searches for ways to cope with the loss of her brother, but she can't get rid of the guilt that eats her alive. Grace continously tells her that it's not her fault, and that she shouldn't feel responsible but, there's no way Isabel can forgive herself. Sam continues the life he's always wanted, while Grace starts one that she's been secretly worried about. She starts to feel sick, and extremely high temperatures seem to be a reqular thing for her. Doctors cannot fix the problem, and it looks like she'll have to battle this herself, she doesn't want to worry Sam. Weeks pass, and things get worse. Sam meets Cole, and doesn't understand why Beck chose him. Cole seems unstable, and his reasons for being a wolf shock Sam. They don't know much about him, and what they learn could be dangerous for the safety of the wolves. Grace and Sam's relationship strengthens as they are forced to stay away from eachother. Grace and Sam are destined to be with eachother, so why is fate tearing them apart? Overall, this was a GREAT sequel, that ended with another crazzzzyyyy cliffhanger. I cannot wait to read the next and final book in this trilogy, Forever, that comes out next summer! 5/5 2010-052

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really enjoyed Linger! I just finished Linger, and I have to say that I got more into it than I did with Shiver. I enjoyed the addition of the two characters, Cole and Isabelle, particularly Cole due to the drastic difference in his character as compared to the others. I cannot wait for the next book as this one leaves you wanting more. I do recommend Linger for anyone who wants a fun romance novel.
Date published: 2010-07-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still Lingers... (Possible spoilers) This is the second installment to Shiver. Shiver is about a girl-Grace- who loves the wolves behind her house in the forest, but there is one wolf in particular that she adores. Sam. Now Sam is human, and he will remain human forever. Although Beck is gone, he still creates new wolves for the pack. We get introtuced to Cole St. Clair in this one. Cole is stuck up, cocky, a total jerk. But only problem is he's famous. Which means that people all over the world could be searching for him now. Cole meets Isable, and we get to read about their perspectives in the story and we let the chemistry begin. Sometimes I just couldn't wait for them to be together and find out what will happen, or how they communicate. It really brought the humour into the story. But we still have Grace and Sam, still inlove more than ever. We already know that Grace was bitten by a wolf in the first book, but she didn't shift because of the heat she was trapped in. Well, that all changes. Grace is constantly getting stomach aches and nose bleeds. But only problem is, her parents caught her sleeping JUST SLEEPING with Sam and they forbid her to see him. Thankfully, she doesn't care. So she sneaks out to find Sam, to help her. And the romance begins all over again. Which brought me to love the two even more. Once I read Shiver, I couldn't wait for Linger! I was so excited to find out that there was a series for it, and now I can't wait for the third book. Forever. Linger was just as amazing as Shiver, I love the cover, and I love the plot. There were even some parts that had made me laugh, but near the end there were some parts that made me on the verge of tears. I hope that the series does have a happy ending to it, because I really want Sam and Grace to be together FOREVER. But I truly recommend this series, it was just touching. And it shows you what true love really is, and how someone would go through the world to help that one person. And that's what Sam did for Grace. I cannot wait to read more of Maggie Stiefvater's books in the future. I already have Lament on my shelf.
