Something (Wisteria 1) by Shelby Lamb is a CTMH genre which was released in 2010 with 280 standard pages in PDF format. This book contains matured scenes which are suitable for open-minded readers and not preferably for younger readers. Something (Wisteria 1) is the first final edition book in Wisteria series.

The characters of the story are teenagers. Starting with Aubrey who has a suicidal behavior because of being broken hearted. Nathan who is an attentive child to his depressed mother and a needy sister named Elizabeth keeps his girlfriend from Aubrey since his girlfriend is Aubrey’s best friend. Bella who is a porn star with a perfect body and a girl who loves partying was envied by her friends. Kendra is a soon-to-be mother to a twin and a close friend of Aubrey even though they were only exchanging chats online.

Aubrey found this book in the used bookstore nestling on the street corner entitled Something. The book contains thrilling poetry which enabled Aubrey to read and scan pages continuously. Through Aubrey, Bella, Kendra, and Nathan were also able to read the book and see different creatures like moving shadows, hallucinations, and horned creatures. The curse in the book that Aubrey found brought their lives into danger.

The disadvantage of the book is that it is not preferable to sensitive and young readers because of the disturbing contents which are limited to open-minded and matured readers. It is understandable that some parts of the book have sexual contents because one of the characters is a porn star, but the author should warn the reader about the disturbing graphical imagery. At first, I am confused about the numerous characters in the story but while I am going through the story, I slowly understood their role and their relationship to the main characters.

All in all, the flow of the story is consistent but there is an error in the use of punctuation marks which gives some confusion. Example “Unfortunately, the two girls at the next stop, her stop, were also familiar faces.” Another error is the use of some abbreviations like TMI without stating what it stands for or what it means. I think these abbreviations are not familiar to readers.

I give Something a rating of 3 out of 4 stars. I recommend this book to readers who want thrilling, creepy and suspense novels and are open-minded and not sensitive with matured scenes.

Too bad I won't be able to read the thrilling poetry you speak of. I'm too sensitive for explicit scenes so I won't be reading this. Thanks for the review. :)

There's some errors but the story line is good. You should try reading the book too. :)

Thank you for this review. The storyline isn't my cup of tea but I have to give credit to the author for this interesting set of characters.
