Selina kyle is a girl who is really tough to break... she is someone who really annoys and defeats the batwing very conveniently.. she is here to make the corrupt of the gotham city suffer..(is this her real motive)?..
The story is of a strong girl who is strongly attached to her sister, a sister who is suffering from a disease and the financial conditions only make their condition worse also as a family they just have one another..
Selina decides she is going to do everything possible to help her sister.. what follows is an action packed fantasy thriller.
Selina has two amazingly dangerous friends with her ''poison ivy'' and ''Harley quinn'' both these characters are awesome and play a good supporting role..
For the first 200 pages nothing seems happening but the real fun starts after that.. every reader will really love the action sequences...
Lucious fox ''Batwing'' does not have much to do in the story but is definately a driving force.
The story is great, you will love reading this. Highly recommended for all the DC fans and those who like Strong Female Characters.
Am being honest , I picked up DC icon book series for they were all over internet. I loved wonderwoman. Then came batman and recently I got Catwoman. It's my first SJM book. This book expresses complicated feelings via simple words. When one wants to live a life , they give up all they have and do it. Only to realise they can't have that thing for which they gaveup all. Selina is a brilliant portrayal of hard core sister , friend, brilliant flexible gymanast . Her story takes you through various levels of society , how one portrays one when she is not even that type of person. She pretends too well. She is also a loyal student which she is know at one point when she tells about ghul.
After reading this I only wished I had a friend like poison ivy , because she was so cute , smart , honest at the same time.
I may have fallen in love with the book after 100 pages. ❤️
I wouldnt say it was perfect.. But this book was an awesome read and i thoroughly enjoyed the ride!!
I liked the Gotham City etched by Maas in this book. The high rooftops and dark alleys; the filthy rich brutes and the struggling lives of poor; the dangerous criminals and slow-moving police were so aptly described. I could feel that heaviness in the air of being in a city where there is such a wide gap between the various classes of society; where the systems made for people are slow and corrupted. All these conditions justified the character of Selena for what she was.
The story had a good pace and in spite of some flaws didn’t slag anywhere. New sub plots and various action scenes kept appearing at regular intervals, which kept the boredom at bay.
Sarah J Maas can engage her readers with the very first line. In spite of a predictable story line of good winning over the evil she succeeded in making me turn the pages of the book to know what happens further in the story.
Poison Ivy was my favorite character here. I liked her character sketch, her personality traits. She was dangerous yet had a vulnerable side. She was mature, sensible and helpful. Even when she broke the law there was a reason for it and she was very clear about her goals. Yes she was in a relationship which didn’t do her any good but she eventually showed strength to step up. Compared to other characters, I connected with her better.
The story was not boring but it was definitely having things which nagged me… a lot!!
SAME NAME… ALMOST
The first thing which struck me was the name of the protagonist. It is very similar to the protagonist of her first famous fantasy series –‘Throne of Glass’. Was Catwoman an inspiration for the author to name her protagonist Celaena in her fantasy series?
WHAT HAPPENED TO SISTERLY LOVE??
The reason Selina ended up as Catwoman, was her sister. To take care of her sister’s deteriorating health, she chooses the path of being fighter eventually ending up as Catwoman. However, when she is back to her hometown there is not a single mention about her sister. It is always told in the flashback. The amount of emotions thrown into the scenes between the sisters, at the beginning of the story, doesn’t allow me to accept that Selina would have not sought out her sister when she came back. As a reader, I could guess that all this was for the climax and I was so right. It was very obvious and lame.
The characters of this story did not appeal to me so much, except Poison Ivy. Somehow, I couldn’t connect with them. I do not mind whether the characters are flawed or flawless. The only thing required is that they are believable. Luke Fox was one character which felt wrong through and through. Even if I could ignore the other ones in the story, it was hard to look away from the weaknesses displayed by Batwing’s character.
Beginning from his awkward name of Batwing to his continuous failed attempts to catch Catwoman – nothing felt likeable to me. Not even once did he outshine Catwoman. I mean, he is next to Batman in Gotham City; the city depends on him… yet he is just left standing when it comes to Catwoman.
On top of it, there were the side effects of his past trauma. I understand that there are some scars which can never be erased but when you decide to become a protector; first thing is that you need to be mentally strong. As much as I wanted to sympathize with him for the things which he suffered in his life, my logical mind just kept nagging that he should have entered the arena of taking care of Gotham City when he was completely healed.
In addition to this, his continuous refusal to receive help from Batman made him look arrogant in my eyes. Maybe I am wrong and have come out with very strong emotions against Batwing but denying to take help when things are going out of control doesn’t seem a brilliant idea to me. I do understand that Batman couldn’t make an appearance in this story but then Batwing also was showing no promising moves. This particular piece of story could be dealt in a better way. In my opinion, it made a dent on Batwing’s character.
The climax was very quick one compared to the pace of the story. From Catwoman’s capture till the time everything is settled – the events felt rushed. There is no glitch when Selina needs to escape. The laid back police are suddenly on their toes and reach the required place on time. One phone call and help is on the way. Catwoman gets successful in her goal. Everything happens one after another, in a jiffy which gives a rushed feeling. Explanation of things is so brief that it feels so empty… almost without emotions.
Ratings on the book
3 Sad Stars
This book by Sarah J Maas left me confused and conflicted. The writing style, descriptions, the pace was good but the content of the story felt wrong in many places. Being a huge fan of her ‘Throne of Glass’ series, it breaks my heart to say that the Catwoman by Sarah J Maas, is just a one-time read.
