About this deal

Caroline M. Galt, "A marble fragment at Mount Holyoke College from the Cretan city of Aptera", Art and Archaeology 6 (1920:150). Kahlen and her "sisters," Marilyn and Aisling, begin the story and you find out quite a lot of how sirens and their lives work. They are beautiful, they can live around regular humans, they can live semi-normal lives, but there's a catch - they cannot age, which means staying in one place for more than a few years isn't possible, and they cannot, under any circumstances, speak, laugh, scream, or make a sound outside of a sigh or breath around a human person.

Recommendations: I wouldn’t recommend this necessarily for fans of Cass’ other work because it satiates an entirely different craving. Instead I’d probably hand it to the lovers of those tragic “girls in pretty dresses in a slightly dystopia era” series (which I call “elegant dystopia”). I’d also hand this to someone expressly tired with typical YA romances. The siren is allegorically described as a beautiful courtesan or prostitute, who sings pleasant melody to men, and is symbolic vice of Pleasure in the preaching of Clement of Alexandria (2nd century). [59] Later writers such as Ambrose (4th century) reiterated the notion that the siren stood as symbol or allegory for worldly temptations. [60] and not an endorsement of the Greek myth. I have such mixed emotions about The Siren. I wanted to love this such much. I saw the beautiful hardcover book in the store and read the summary and I was instantly sold. It's my first book from Kiera Cass, so I won't be drawing any comparisons between this and The Selection series. This is also my first book about sirens and it just fell really flat most of the time. Después de un tiempo sin leer (malditos exámenes) necesitaba una lectura simple, sencilla y ligera, este libro cumple perfectamente estas características, honestamente estaba esperando este libro durante todo el año (lo espere más que "La Corona").

Did we miss something on diversity?

And then there's the personified Ocean who switches between talking to them like the sirens are employees and then talks to them like they're BFFs. It was pretty weird at times.

Harrison, Jane Ellen (1922) (3rd ed.) Prolegomena to the Study of Greek Religion. London: C.J. Clay and Sons. Kahlen gets new "sisters," Miaka and Elizabeth, who help transform her into something better than she ever imagined she could be. Miaka is creative and she is also Kahlen's first "little sister," while Elizabeth is wild and crazy, and brings out the fun and slightly mischievous side of Kahlen. Aside from Aisling being withdrawn and bitter (think Mr. Scrooge), you don't know much about her for the most part, but she is a very important piece of Kahlen's puzzle.

Esta historia es muy o TOTALMENTE diferente a la saga de La Selección, empecemos con el hecho de que Kahlen es encantadora el 99% del libro, algo que con America y Eadlyn no pasa (yo odiaba a America y Eadlyn no me gusto mucho).
