Hyperion Keats Reviews
Such a cute book! It was fun reading a mystery surrounding an old diary, a love story, and poetry. I really liked the twist at the end. I so did not see that coming at all. Hoping for a sequel!
Hyperion Keats has been around poetry her whole life, and even if she wanted to, she can't escape it since it's not just her name 'Hyperion' that screams poetic, it's the fact that she's the great-great grand niece of the poet John Keats. When poetry fanboy Will moves in next door and Hyperion gives him the honour of showing Will the famous 'Keats' house with her 'normal-named' sister Isabella, they stumble upon a mysterious diary written by the girl who inspired the sonnet "To A Lady Seen For A Moment At Vauxhall". Finding out who this girl was is only half of the mystery, especially when a mysterious car seems to be following them, intent on keeping what they've found hidden forever.Hyperion Keats was a fun and page-turning mystery that definitely keeps the reader guessing until the last page. At times I had to wonder where the story was heading, especially with some actions taking place and then not being mentioned for the next few chapters, but everything came together in a perfectly thrilling conclusion that definitely opens up for more adventures from Hyperion and Isabella.All of the characters were well-rounded. Hyperion was the perfect character to follow through the story, a mixture of little sister wanting to take the spotlight (and the boy) away from her sister, and young Nancy Drew. Isabella was the perfect addition for an older sister, and the surprise medical condition (which I won't give away as it might spoil some things) was perfectly written and when thinking back through the story it is easy to see some actions that Isabella did that fits in with that condition. And then there's Will, the boy who's got his own dark shadows which are revealed towards the end of the story (again no spoilers here).Hyperion Keats was a quick and interesting read and I would recommend this to anyone who loves mysteries like Nancy Drew. I look forward to reading more of Hyperion and Isabella's adventures.
This is a very quick, and very well-written book. Witty, funny, and it intertwines history with reality very nicely. I got totally engrossed in it--it was just different enough for me to really get into and enjoy. Molly Zenk has tied in a subject that may not be very interesting to some (me included--I am not a fan of poetry) and made it engrossing.The one thing I had an issue with (which is why I rated this a 4 star) is the ending. It just didn't sit quite well with me. It's a shocker--and I've seen a couple of reviews that liked it, but I wasn't convinced by it, and that made this almost perfect little book not perfect enough for me to give it a 5. But besides that, the characters are well developed, the dialogue is snappy, and the story fast-paced and engrossing. I'd definitely recommend this one to kids, young girls especially.Nikki BennettNik's Picks Book Reviewswww.nikki-bennett.com(The author provided me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.)
"Hyperion Keats" is the first in a new young adult series that focuses on the Romantic Poets, specifically John Keats. As a reader, i didn't have a lot of background with this era and the poets themselves. However, I enjoyed the story. I think the back half of the story moved along at a good pace and I think the diary entries as a storytelling device was a good way to give us an insight into the mystery.I was not expecting the story to end the way it did and I was pleasantly surprised by the revelations as to who the main characters' enemies really were. I think it sets it up nicely for the sequel.I would recommend this novel as a quick read. I think it definitely accessible to younger readers as a quick mystery and an introduction to a segment of literary history that are not often discussed until much further in the American educational system.
