Ke this book a little heartfelt if that s how you d want to put it I don t know The TwistThe twist in this book is that everything that happened over the course of the book had been filmed and was going to be made into a movie I figured this out way too early on but it did raise some good moral estions about privacy and also make the book less boring This is my conclusionI will write a better back of cover review for this book What seems like an ordinary rags to riches teenage love triangle Guided Approach to Intermediate and Advanced Coding + ICD-10-CM/PCs Coding uickly raises moralestions about privacy and it has twists than a rope made from Twizzlers A Understanding Yandere Lovers uite well executed novel but notite a thriller Me OpPoSiTiOn Press Imposter was a decent book for me It started off alright but once the plot twists and revelations started coming in things went a little absurd There were some redeeming points in terms of some of the character development in this book but overall it was just a bit too muchImposter is a story about Seth an 18 year old community theater actor who gets scouted after his performance as Romeo in Romeo and Juliet for a huge film named Whirlwind Originally a celebrity couple Sabrina Layton and Kris Ellis were attached to the film but due to their recent break Kings of Paradise (Ash and Sand up Seth and another novice actress Annaleigh takep the lead roles of the star crossed couple instead Whirlwind is a niue film in the way that the actors and actresses are given cameras to film and record their actions on the go making the film a sort of scripted reality where they are given a basic plot and Script To Follow But to follow but much of the creative input is p to them As the story progresses Seth starts to experience the trials of being in Hollywood and realises that there are dark secrets he does not know about the film and its crewFirst I ll talk about what I liked about this book There are some interesting characters in this book Sabrina for instance Initially I figured Sabrina was the sual cut throat bitchy star actress who talks shit about others behind their backs continually wears a mask to fool others into a sense of trust etc etc Her repeated flip flopping of joining and leaving the cast of the film along with her erratic and destructive behaviour convinced me that she was antagonist of this book and it led me to hate her character It is revealed later on that Sabrina was struggling with drug addiction which subseuently led to her breakup with Kris Her struggles on her road to recovery and her support for Seth s cause at the end of the book was a remarkable turnaround for her and it made me do a 180 on how I felt about her character Similarly Kris started out looking like a standard entitled jerk a famous actor who is so full of himself complete with a posse of supportive jerk bros When he first apologised for his rude comments about the appearance of an intern it made me realise I might have made some assumptions too soon While Kris might have come off brash and intense he is actually a decent person who tried to get Sabrina off her drug problem and was determined to seek justice for what had happened during the course of filming for Whirlwind I figured the author was going to play on the standard stereotypes of famous actors and actresses early on in the book so it was refreshing to see these characters become developed and complicated "than simple caricatures of Hollywood The pace of the book was good too I was "simple caricatures of Hollywood The pace of the book was good too I was to discovering how the story would end and how everything would be resolved when I started on the second half of the book and it kept me interested all the way till the end The main problem I had with this book was its plot The premise of having an entire movie filmed via headcams of the main actors and actresses was believable It was billed as an adventurous experiment and it was an indie film after all What was difficult to believe was the actual plot of the movie that the director and producers had in mind which was to se the real lives of all the actors and actresses as content for the film Basically the whole plot of the movie was revealed to the paparazzi stage by stage including intimate photographs and whatever content that was taken in private so how did the crew intend to make money on releasing such a film when most of its content is already out there At various points of the book various characters mention that celebrity gossip and news will always blow over as the media enter another news cycle and move on to the next story so it doesn t make much sense that a film based on yesterday s gossip news would do we.

DOWNLOAD ImposterI ve been actively following Antony John s career since I read his wonderful Five Flavors of Dumb and waited in anticipation year after year for each Elemental trilogy book to come out What I love about his writing is other than his terrific talent of fleshing out three dimensional characters and elouent prose is the fact that he takes risksImposter is yet another example of this He started with YA contemporaries moved to YA dystopian and now he maneuvers through a YA thriller with style and grit Seth the protagonist is an 18 year old guy who is trying to make it big as an actor like so many other "teens But Seth lands the opportunity of a lifetime to star "But Seth lands the
of a to star an indie film that two big name Hollywood stars dropped out of after much speculation and drama Seth knows this will make his career But nothing is as it seems and as he wades deeper into the Hollywood scene and falls for a famous movie star he realizes that he may have bit off than he can chewThe plotting of this book is deliberate and well paced I was sucked in from the first page and read the whole book from cover to cover in an evening John has shown skillfully again how he can make you believe his characters and even when they bridge into typical teen territory there s just something about them that makes you want to keep turning the pages to find out about them since they are deeper than they first may seem I loved the hook of the book the set p of the show is so fascinating Not to mention it s hard to know who to trust if anyone at allI m glad I took a while to think about this book because to be honest I wasn t sure how I felt about it initially This is a huge departure from John s previous books and I think there is something safe and happy making about status La muralla verde uo But John didn t want to play it safe and I think he really succeeds here in pushing his comfort zone Second I think I was so wrapped into the characters that when it didn t endp the way I wanted to I was disappointed But that s the whole point of a thriller to turn your expectations on its head and surprise you It definitely did that in spadesOverall a well plotted and intense thriller that kept me hooked from start to finish while it wasn t my favorite of his books it is a worthwhile read and like any great thriller will keep you guessing The New Competition until the bitter end The publisher promotes this book as The Firm meets The Truman Show I wish it were as exciting as either of those The book was a real slow starter for me and I almost put it aside when it took me over a week to get through the first 50 pages Thankfully my life slowed down the book pickedp and I read the second half of the book in a day I can see why many high school teens would enjoy John s tale of a young rather innocent local actor who is enad then disillusioned by the reality of Hollywood I would not however recommend it for middle school libraries I was lucky enough to read a couple early versions of this story and I really enjoyed it Imposter isn t a huge flashy murder mystery with a trail of mutilated corpses but instead of a cerebral mystery where nothing ever seems to add Domestic Slavery Considered as a Scriptural Institution by Francis Wayland and Richard Fuller up and as a reader you have to struggle to put the pieces togetherI like that the main character is a believable guy who has a good heart but sometimes lets his emotions dictate his actions We all make bad choices and Seth is far from perfect but I found myself rooting for him throughout the story because he learned from his mistakes Considering that he s just a regular guy caughtp in a Hollywood conspiracy he does pretty good with what he s gotI also really liked the family dynamics in play here There are great scenes between Seth and his dad and Seth and his brother and you can tell what really matters to these characters My favorite thing about this book is the prose It s been polished to perfection and there are lots of clever metaphors and otable lines without ever feeling over the top I have to say at least thisI hate love triangles However I have to admit that this one was well executed MostlyLet me go over some aspects of this book The reviews on the backI have a hunch that none of the people who put their reviews on the back of the book actually read this long love triangle It is not pure adrenaline Sure it has twists but it s not exciting CharactersSeth is relatable and ambitious about his film career Annaleigh and Sabrina are well developed as love interests with some twists that really flesh them out Brian and Ryder make effective villains and Gant and his dad are characters that just ma.

Ll in the box office especially when all the paparazzi seem to have lost interest in Seth towards the end of the book To film the cast members in secret and to record all of their actions was entering We Live in Public territory Seth Sabrina and Annaleigh signed their contracts agreeing to such recordings but I found it hard to believe that Seth after reading every page of the contract did not pick p anything about non consensual filming or the like and just signed away his right to privacy in that agreement Also the content that was being
was crazy included Annaleigh and Seth having sex in Annaleigh s hotel room and since Annaleigh is only 17 this is pretty much pornography involving a minor that the production crew have on their hands and yet Annaleigh and her parents were totally fine with that and the film crew threatened Seth with PUBLISHING it as well That is just insane Wire tapping the private phones given to the actors was believable though I am not sure how legal that was Wire tapping Annaleigh s personal handphone was a little too convenient to me for the production crew to discover Seth s actions towards the end of the bookI had a problem with Annaleigh s character as well One minute she was shy and struggling in the spotlight to hold her own against Sabrina in a press conference the next she s angry at Seth for knowing about the level of voyeurism the production was operating at while she had known from the very beginning about it She exploited her father s criminal situation for the "media but still played the victim in the whole fiasco I liked Annaleigh in the beginning thinking she was a good "but still played the victim in the whole fiasco I liked Annaleigh in the beginning thinking she was a good struggling in the evil and hypocrisy of Hollywood but in the end it turns out she fits right in This book was intriguing at first and got frustrating towards the end This book could have taken a couple steps towards having a realistic plot The ambiguous ending might be something some appreciate but I felt that readers deserved to know about how it all ended in Seth s fight against Whirlwind and not be left hanging at the end 35 Seth was once just an actor performing in local plays in his town but his whole world is flipped on it s side when Seth acuires the lead role of an Children of the New World upcoming Hollywood movie The movie inestion is no normal film as Seth finds out as it involves actual interaction The Oswald Reflection utilizing head cams with other cast members which translates to little to no script The whole focus on the novel focuses on these interactions with these cast members and the mysterious ways the press seems to obtain extremely personal photographs of Seth The book has an intense way ofnraveling the plot and each character seems The Rabbit Who Wants to Go to Harvard uniue in their own ways Due to most of the main characters being involved in acting it is hard to tell if some are being truthful or puttingp a facade which adds on to the thrill Antony John successfully builds Quantum (Captain Chase up The story is generally an exciting one at times though I felt like it could of been shorter due to some events that were repetitive Additionally I would recommend this book to anyone interested in a thriller type story or anyone who has an interest in filmacting as most of the plot surrounds this topic The first time I tried reading it I put it down after 50 pages and read something else but after the second time I got past the 50 page mark it was hard to put this book down Seth Crane is an LA boy a prominent actor in his high school and community theater He s pretty bummed that he just lost a big commercial gig but things lookp when a Hollywood big wig comes to see him on his closing night as Romeo He offers Seth the starring role in what is sure to be a huge film Seth s dreams come true instantly money fame success girls including Sabrina Hollywood s hottest teen star But what will it cost him Being the star of this movie comes with lots of strings And danger Big surprise ending in this one Loved the Epilogue I can t remember ever reading a YA Hollywood thriller so Imposter felt really original And I love this cover It s kind of a typical cover for an adult thriller but it stands out for YA Nice lil story Will be good for a TV series and not a movieFinely woven adventure of a naive young man into Introduction to Mythology untested waters of lies hypocrisy coverps money treachery and land mines The thing I liked about this book was the relationship between Seth and his brother and father My dad had a stroke when he was young and it was truly sad to see how much a man loses when he can no longer work and support his family I wasn t half.
