isn’t the first novel by Ellen Hopkins that I’ve read so I was already aware of her poetic free verse way of writing. I actually really enjoyed the other two or three books that I’ve read by her, but I didn’t enjoy this one as much. I think I would’ve preferred to have a read this book in a more traditional prose format simply because I feel like it would’ve been more detailed and influential.
Besides the writing style Crank
was full of clichés and cheesy writing. I didn’t think it was a powerful book as so many others have said. Honestly, if I didn’t already have the other two books in this trilogy I most likely wouldn’t have bother to get them after reading this. Since I already have them I’ll probably read them eventually, but not anytime soon.
