The love interest was a good guy. A very believable, kind guy. A nice break from the over abundance of bad boys in YA and NA.

And I admired Elizabeth, as much as she annoyed me. I do love my badass heroines (AELINNNNN) but Kahlen was really amazing. She is essentially a normal girl – and over the course of the novel, she realizes that time and time again. She isn’t strong or unbreakable, she’s human. And I loved having an element like that in this kind of book.Iconography [ edit ] Classical iconography [ edit ] Moaning siren statuette from Myrina, first century BC I'm so disappointed in this book. I was such a huge fan of The Selection series so I expected to really like The Siren but honestly, everything was just super dull. Linda Phyllis Austern, Inna Naroditskaya, Music of the Sirens, Indiana University Press, 2006, p.18 Algo que me fastidio bastante en el libro fue el extraño amor enfermizo que Oceanía tenía hacia Kahlen, lo siento pero muchas veces me llegaba a desesperar, se me hacia muy controlador, asfixiante, poco santo.

The Siren covers so many topics, one *might* think it wouldn’t be able to do that effectively, but Kiera Cass finds a way. The topics include, no fewer than: social norms across times, diversity of experiences, abuse, sacrifice, ALL sorts of love (motherly, friendship, soulmate), the impact of nature on the world, and the impact of the world on nature, the balance of life, and loss. With supernatural and fantasy elements set in the modern world, including important friendships and relationships, this book is more than a romance, though that relationship is at the center of most of the book.a b c d e f Dante Alighieri (1996–2013). The divine comedy of Dante Alighieri. Robert M. Durling, Ronald L. Martinez. New York: Oxford University Press. ISBN 978-0-19-508740-6. OCLC 32430822. Kiera Cass’ true artistry will always be her well-formed interesting characters, and her memorable, beautiful, epic one-liner quotes. Some of these have already been teased: Apollodorus, Epitome 7.18; Hyginus, Fabulae Preface, 125& 141; Tzetzes, Chiliades, 1.14, line 339 & 348 Fast forward eighty years and Kahlen is now a Siren, immortal and only twenty years from completing her role until another takes her place. Along with her sisters in Elizabeth, Miaka and the soon to be departed Aisling, Kahlen serves the Ocean in an emotional contract which sees her sing to to feed her thirst for human life. The Ocean is portrayed as an energy who owns the life of each Siren until her time of servitude is over. She's possessive and continues to brainwash her possessions that they are her property. Although ruling with with a firm and controlling hand, She is passive aggressive and uses the motion of Her waves to caress her Sirens to soothe them in their time of need.

The Ocean warns Kahlen that no matter what happens, those must stay daydreams and she cannot chance their secret by letting her fantasies run away with her. Kahlen decides she wants to make a difference and takes up sign language, which transforms into spending a few years at schools for the deaf teaching children, and later teenagers, that being deaf isn't always a bad thing.Illustrating the siren as a pure mermaid became commonplace in the "second family" bestiaries, and she was shown holding a musical instrument in the classical tradition, but also sometimes holding apparently an eel-fish. [80] An example of the siren-mermaid holding such a fish is found in one of the earlier codices in this group, dated the late 12th century. [f] [69] (As bird-like) a b c Harrison, Jane Ellen (1882). Myths of the Odyssey in Art and Literature. London: Rivingtons. pp.169–170, Plate 47a. Uno de los elementos que más me gustó de The Siren fue la gran cantidad de personalidades que albergaban las hermanas de Kahlen, las sirenas. Si bien la historia de Aisling es la que más me atrajo de todas, el saber un poco de la vida pasada de cada una de estas chicas atadas al Océano fue bastante refrescante, pues el libro de vez en cuando se hacía un poco lento. ¡Ahhh! Pero si hay algo que Kiera Cass hizo bien en The Siren fue hacernos sufrir. Por supuesto que esta mujer no nos va a regalar una historia de amor sin grandes fuerzas de la naturaleza, destinos escritos e inseguridades que intenten separar a Kahlen y Akinli. All in all, I liked this book, it was fresh, cute and a fast read, and that's what I needed (because I've been reading heartbreaking, sad books). That said... it was not what I expected. In good ways and in bad ways. Let's start with something I'm not sure if I liked or not, but it sure had me intrigued: The Ocean.
