Review of The Moth Diaries
As I read a lot of Young Adult books I was looking for a Vampire book that is not part of a series.
When I first picked up this book I read that it was written in the format of a diary. Having never read a book in this format I didn’t really know what to expect.
However when I started reading the preface I was intrigued. The ‘author’ of the diary suffers from borderline personality disorder, depression and psychosis. This comes through a lot in the story. Personally I found the main character to be ‘Neurotic’ at times.
At times I got slightly confused when the narrator flicked from present to past. In some chapters there are quotes which I had trouble understanding. I also feel that some sections in this book needed explaining more as I got confused quite a bit.
I would still recommend this book to others, I also think that this book works well in the diary format.
