To be honest: I think this is one of the best series within a series :D
I know I mentioned it in all my other reviews to the King series, but I have to say it again: I LOVE PREPPY!
So far Preppy 1 and Preppy 2 are my favorite books of the complete King series. Both books have almost everything I missed and this part had me feeling so much with the characters.
I loved reading about Preppy- how he struggled with life and the aftermath of his torture. How he hurt- mainly emotionally and psychologically. How he loved. How broken and lost he was. And finally- how he found himself. Somehow I can identify myself with him. On the outside I always show another side of me, while on the inside I´m like Preppy- broken. But although he was suffering, he was also the Preppy from the other books. The funny and strong one.
I loved Dre as well. Not as much as Preppy but still. She´s good for him.
This book had me feeling so much- I was hurting when Preppy did, I was sad, I was grinning and laughing, I was mad and so on. This is what a good book is made of. I want to feel and I want to feel connected to the characters. Preppy´s books are delivering it!
Again, lot´s of scenes were predictable but this time it didn´t bother me. I was totally into the story. I didn´t even miss the things I mentioned in my review to Preppy 1. I wanted to read about the bad, sick, dangerous side of Preppy but somehow I was so much into Preppy 2 that I didn´t think about that.
Every single scene with Preppy, Dre and Bo melted my heart. Who would have thought at the beginning of King and then also with the other books that this would happen? SPOILER START Preppy as a Dad- Didn´t think I could love him more but him being with a kid is soooo cute, sooo adorable <3 How he acted with Bo ...just aww. <3 SPOILER END
And then this end- again. Damn it! TM Frazier definitely loves cliffhangers :P
I mean- I knew that sth like that would happen but the question is- who is it? SPOILER START Is it the guy Preppy should have killed at the beginning of Preppy 1? The one who was with Dre and the other guy stealing the plants from Dre´s grandmother. I forgot his name.... Or is it Bo´s Dad? Maybe he didn´t die of the gunshots and wants revenge? Or Bo´s mother? Maybe she didn´t use all the Heroin and didn´t die? ...Oooor is this someone who worked with Chop and was part of Preppy´s torture? Sth. like that was mentioned in the hospital. I have to find out asap :D SPOILER END
There isn´t much I can complain about. I really loved this book. I just think the way how Preppy became his old self was a bit too quick. Like he got his gun and everything else is forgotten. Maybe it could have been a bit different but it´s ok. Also when King wanted to tattoo Preppy´s scars- didn´t really work for me in the moment when it was mentioned SPOILER START At this time, Preppy flinched whenever someone touched him, but then King wanted to tattoo him? I think it was a bit too soon SPOILER END But then the time changed, forward to 5 month later. Everything could have happened in those months. So yeah. Guess I have to imagine a bit myself ;)
About the other characters- I loved them all here. Especially King and Bear. Loved how much they care(d) about Preppy. One scene with Bear made me tear up a bit. It was so sweet and beautiful and sad at the same time. <3
I so can´t wait to read Preppy 3, although I dont want it to end. But I´m curious. I wanna know what´s going to happen to Preppy & Co. <3
Btw. : What happened to Dre´s grandmothers Pig? :D
