    I bought The Unwanteds last year after having loved Lisa McMann s other books, Cryer s Cross and Dead To You The cover was beautiful, the synopsis was interesting and there were even critics raving on how the book was like Harry Potter meets The Hunger Games I figured that with all those credentials, The Unwanteds ought to be a pretty awesome read, but it seems I was horribly, dreadfully wrong.NarrationThe omniscient and omnipresent third person narration is awful That kind of narration has t I bought The Unwanteds last year after having loved Lisa McMann s other books, Cryer s Cross and Dead To You The cover was beautiful, the synopsis was interesting and there were even critics raving on how the book was like Harry Potter meets The Hunger Games I figured that with all those credentials, The Unwanteds ought to be a pretty awesome read, but it seems I was horribly, dreadfully wrong.NarrationThe omniscient and omnipresent third person narration is awful That kind of narration has to be done properly if it s not to fall in one orof the various writing potholes that come with it, and Lisa McMann didn t achieve that Instead, McMann forsakes dialogue and uses the narrator to tell you how all of the characters feel, what they re thinking and what their plans for the future are This generates a complete lack of suspense and also makes the characters uninteresting, since you get to know them through information that is blat...
