My wife loves it

My wife read it years and years ago, but couldn't find. I finally found it on here and she's reading it again now and she's loving it. She'll read it out loud and I find myself enjoying it also.

Not worth the time

This book read like stereo intructions to me. That is how bland, and utterly boring this book came off. There was no depth, no emotion, and nothing to make you believe or even understand why Zoe would even get involved with Simon. Her relationship with her father and what was happening with her mother and best friend was some what touching, but even this came off as being glazed over like it was just a filler to put more pages into the story. I found myself getting frustrated and bored with Simon's account of his past and how he came to be who he was while explaining it to Zoe. It did not flow at all. It seemed like he was reading off what he was saying to her. And what is the deal with the short stories of before and after? "The Christmas Cat" was even worse. I read the Authors introduction and I must say that I totally understand why it took years to even get this story published. And honestly it should have never been published at all. I really wanted to like this story, but unfortunately I didn't. I would not recommend this read.

Great Easy Read! :)

If you're one of those people who really likes vamp/paranormal books this is definitely the book for you. It is a fast, easy read so if you really like the long, drawn out books..this isn't the book for you. As a matter of fact, I wish that this book had been a bit longer. Don't get me wrong...I wasn't disappointed about the just happened too soon. The love/friendship between the two main characters is very sweet. She is a lonely human teenager, and he is this sad and lonely vampire. Both seem to be completely lost until they find each other. They both even reconcile some of their conflicts with life because they finally feel loved and supported. I would have given the book a 4 and a half if I could. I read Klause's "Blood and Chocolate" before this book and absolutely loved it. Her writing style was great in "Blood and Chocolate". I hate to say that I was a little disappointed in her writing style in this book though. It didn't seem as mature as her writing style in "Blood and Chocolate". And I also wish the book would have been a bit longer. All in all, the book was still a joy to read and I definitely recommend it to others. I also agreed with another reviewer's ealier comments "the story is a lot like Buffy the Vampire Slayer". Just a little sweeter and more down to earth (if that's possible when vampires are involved). Happy Reading! :)

The Silver Kiss!

Zoe is going through the hardest time in her life right now. Her mother is dying from cancer, her best friend is moving away, her father won't pay any attention to her, and she's stopped sleeping. Late one night Zoe goes for a walk in the park and see's a boy standing in the bushes. Zoe thought nothing of it but night after night she kept seeing him. Finally, he talks to her. She finds about a lot about him like his name is Simon. Oh, and he's a vampire. After learning Simon's past Zoe realizes she can help his future. That is where I shall leave you at. This book has comedy, tradgedy, romance and horror all in one! The book is a real page turner and keeps you glued to your seat. Your actually sad at the end because you don't want the book to finish! I give the books 5 stars because it's one of the best I have ever read. Happy Reading!

"Silver Kiss" is Pure Vampire Gold

Wow, whenever someone will dare try and tell me that a book about vampires can't be powerful, I'm going to just hand them this book and say "read this and just try saying that again." This book is truly a beautiful, moving piece of writing. Zoe's life seems to be falling around her. With her mother battling life-threatening cancer, her father seeming not to truly listen to her anymore, and her best friend moving to Oregon, things just don't seem to be looking up. Then Simon walks in. Strange, mysterious, silver-haired, beautiful Simon. Simon. The Vampire. Who will change her life forever.The characters in "The Silver Kiss" are well developed, easy to identify with, and completely unforgettable. Every tear, laugh, surprise and kiss, you feel along with them. The language of the book is so beautiful and lyrical, sometimes you catch yourself thinking... wait... THIS is a vampire novel????? I don't care if you don't like vampires, or if you don't like reading romances, or teen dramas, or if you don't like reading books at all. You won't be able to put this book down, and like a good kiss, you won't want it to end.

Great YA Fiction

The YA market has, over the last decade, produced some fine fiction. This simple tale of a young girl facing the death of her mother is really sweet and poetic. Zoe is the typical teenager with all the regular problems, except her mother is dying, her best friend is moving, and the guy she is falling for is a vampire. The Silver Kiss works, even on a simple level, because Simon is a metaphor for death and what awaits us all. There is also a lesson about isolation and loneliness. Ms. Klause did a wonderful job. It's a great read, even for me, and I'm not a teen. And I suggest it for all young adults. Nice love story too. And a neat subplot about going bad when you don't have to. Read it and weep.

Definately, the best book I've ever read!

It's been a while since I've read a book that wasn't for school. So when I was at Barnes & Noble looking through the Young Adult section two days ago, something just kept drawing me back to the book. The fact that it's won several awards and had wonderful reviews on the inside cover also convinced me into getting it. I started reading it that night, and I instantly fell in love. The characters were so awesome, and the pages were going by so fast. I never wanted the story to end, and especially not the way it did. Even though the author may have stretched some details about how vampires are, it doesn't matter. It's her book and I love the way she wrote it. I wouldn't change anything. The way the author used imagery, suspense, and foreshadowing kept me hooked the whole way. It's action packed, romantic, and absolutely a beautiful story. By the time I got to the end this afternoon, I was in tears. Not just because of what happened, but because the story was over. I'll never forget "The Silver Kiss." It will always have a special place in my heart. And I plan on reading it again. I would recommend this story to anyone.
