It isn t often that I give books I manage to finish reading one star mainly I DNF at an earlier stage but with Catalyst that was a different story Because of the short length I decided to plough through and see if the storyline and characters were going to be appealing and compelling Sadly it was neither of those things I enjoyed Forge and Chains both by the same author when I read them aged fourteen as a high school student but since then the writing style doesn t uite sit well with meKate Malone lives with her Dad who is a reverend and after applying for College a fire occurs nearby meaning one of her nemesis having to move in as the house is being rebuilt Will say trigger warning for death as a young character does die towards the end of the story which was upsetting to read I couldn t connect with Kate or any of her fellow classmates the plotline was disjointed and some of the actions undertaken by the main character Kate to be childish and uestionable The ending was also abrupt leaving me with uestions than answers Very disappointed will not be reading any books by this author

Catalyst Free download Ë PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free S still waiting to hear from the only college she applied to MIT Kate feels that her life is spinning out of her control and then something happens that truly blows it all apart Set in the same community as the remarkable Speak Catalyst is a novel that will change the way you look at the worl. Catalyst by Laurie Halse Anderson is a seuelcompanion to Speak It s set one year after the events of Speak This novel is narrated by Kate Malone straight A senior science and math whiz and daughter of the local reverend Kate s also a great runner which is good because Kate s been running from a lot of thingsKate has been the family caretaker since her mother died She hasn t been sleeping as she waits to hear from her dream college she runs instead And now Teri Litch Kate s nemesis and Terry s little brother are living with the Malones Kate tries to ignore all of these problems by running and keeping her head in the sand Besides things couldn t get any worse Until they doYou ll have to read the book to figure out what happens next because I don t do spoiler reviewsSo now we can talk about the book in technical terms The book is broken up into elements solid liuid gas and features uotes from an AP Chem prep book Most of them are straightforward enough to be understandable and relate to the story Kate also makes use of scientific elements for her narration without being overly scientific AKA confusingboringI greatly admire Laurie Halse Anderson She s a great writer and she never comes off as smug or pompous in her interviews at the back of her books Even better Anderson is a fresh voiceThat said the voice here was not as fresh as it was in Speak In other words Kate s narration sounds a lot like Melinda even though they are completely different characters That bothered me I like that Anderson s prose is so snappy and often sarcastic but it was weird having two disparate characters narrate in almost the same voice Given the connection between these two books I suppose comparisons are inevitable so I ll finish the thought Melinda is a likable narrator than Kate That makes a differenceIronically the increased dialogue in this book Melinda does not talk throughout most of hers doesn t make the characters developed The minor characters particularly Sara and Travis remain flat developed enough to be uirky but not present enough to be memorable This might be because Kate s social circle is larger giving Anderson characters to fit into the narrativeThe other thing to bear in mind about Catalyst is that it is not the same kind of book as Speak Kate s path throughout the narrative and her way through her problems is very different than Melinda s If you haven t guessed yet Kate s path involves a lot of running This book also has a different appeal Speak seemed universal the scope for Catalyst is narrow Anderson does a great job of capturing the anxiety and drama that surrounds the college applicationacceptance process She also creates a compelling study of the silent overachiever that seems to be at every high school More importantly Anderson shows that those achievements don t always come without a costOverall Catalyst is a good book I enjoyed it and I would recommend it But Speak was a great book that was overall powerful than its seuelYou can find this review and on my blog Miss Print
