Kurzbeschreibung

He's my teacher. I shouldn't be alone with him. But I can't help that he's irresistible. I let the door silently close at my back. He stared at me, and a taut quiet stretched between us. "I like hearing you play," I said, moving toward him. He turned, in sync with my slow approach. He looked up at me but didn't say anything. I rested my clammy hand on the cold, slick body of the baby grand. "May I?" The muscles in his throat shifted, then he swallowed. "Eden." My knees weakened, like a soft tickling kiss had just been blown against the backs of them. "Is it okay?" I asked. His gaze held mine like two hands joined. He understood what I was really asking. "Let me stay," I said. "Please." "You're going to get me in trouble," he said.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Habe schon besseres gelesen.. 17. Mai 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich stehe auf Bücher, die die Lehrer-Schüler-Beziehung behandeln und da sich die Story ziemlich interessant anhörte, stürzte ich mich natürlich darauf.

Ich muss sagen, dass mir die Protagonistin Eden ziemlich unsympathisch war, ich konnte keine wirkliche Verbindung zu ihr aufbauen. Sie dachte meistens nur an sich und handelte egoistisch.

Ihren Gegenpart jedoch fand ich sehr nett. Mr. Christian ist ein toller Mensch, manchmal etwas schüchtern und unerfahren, was ihn sehr attraktiv macht.

Die Geschichte wird von Eden erzählt, was mir zu wenig war. Ich hätte gerne auch von Mr. Christian gelesen, da ich zu ihm eine bessere Bindung aufbauen konnte als Eden.

Wer auf solche Geschichten steht, kann sich ja mal an diesem Buch versuchen. Jedoch kann ich es nicht wirklich weiterempfehlen.

Format:Taschenbuch
"The melody reached in. Touched me. Filled me. As if an invisible siphon leeched off the notes and chords with the urgency of needed breath. He slowed the piece, his long fingers curling and flattening on the ivory keys, his eyes closing, lashes pressed against his cheeks. The tune echoed off the empty walls with one final deep chord. When he opened his eyes, they locked on mine. His hands slid from the keys and into his lap.

`There can't be anything between us.'"

Eden, a senior at her high school, needs to take an elective. She signs up for Concert Choir, which has always been labeled as an "Easy A" class. She doesn't expect to even care about the class... Much less, truly enjoy it.

However, when Mr. James Christian, the beautiful, young, new teacher, enters the room, Eden's heart stops. Concert Choir will certainly be more than she ever bargained for. Soon, Choir becomes her favorite class, and not because of all the beautiful music. A forbidden attraction springs up between Eden and her teacher, which they must repress.

Eden, dealing with her distant father, terrible stepmother and the loss of her real mother ten years previously, has a lot going on in her life. She seeks solace through Mr. Christian when her school friends become less than helpful. After having experienced a more mature friendship with Mr. Christian, people that she used to hang out with (her ex-boyfriend, etc.), seem suddenly immature and uninteresting. He seems to understand her in an adult way that she has never experienced before.

The dynamic between Eden and her teacher is very interesting. Little details display the subtle changes in their relationship throughout the novel. The reader will slowly watch her change how she addresses him... He goes from Mr.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing Eden 3. August 2010
Von I Wasn't Here - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I admit, judging from the other reviews I read about this, I was expecting a much better book. I like the premise, and forbidden love is a great draw. But this is definitely not a great book.

What I didn't like so much was the whole teenaged attitude. It's very superficial and immature. Eden has a past of "hooking up" and always getting what she wants. She is typically attractive, rich, and neglected by her daddy after her mother died and now has to endure a plastic step-mother. Eden doesn't make for an original or good heroine, and I felt no sympathy for her.

I found it implausible how quickly she fell for Mr. Christian. She sees him for the first time and immediately abandons her relationship with her boyfriend.

I got sick of how often the phrases "lame", "cool", and "hooking up" were used.

What I did (sort of) like about this book was James Christian (although the way he dresses is so cliche, I had to roll my eyes), the music teacher she falls for. He's not original, either, in any way. He's more like a character in a fanfiction story. Still, he's much too good for her and I have no idea why he fell for her. She isn't much different from other girls her age. Though, to give the character some credit, she does later acknowledge that she's a bit ashamed of herself and that he's too good for her.

The writing is so-so and I wasn't impressed. I've read better teacher/student romances than this, ones that are deeper, better written, and with more interesting, developed characters that go against the grain.

Overall, it was mildly enjoyable, but disappointing and...not very good.

The dynamic between Eden and her teacher is very interesting. Little details display the subtle changes in their relationship throughout the novel. The reader will slowly watch her change how she addresses him... He goes from Mr. Christian to James Christian to James. Yet, although he is only four years older than Eden, there is still the teacher-student gap that cannot be bridged.

A SEASON OF EDEN will have you wondering, hoping, and crossing your fingers, waiting for something to happen between the two. J.M. Warwick has written a book that can and will be enjoyed by all different kinds of teenagers.

2.0 von 5 Sternen A season of obnoxious teen girl being obnoxious. 7. April 2013
Von India V. Shank - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
If you're interested in this book, and over the age of 16, move on. Find something new.. this book is not what you want or expect.
My review will contain 'major' spoilers of the (very few) plot points in the book, so if you haven't read it and are going to... don't read this. Or if you make the better decision of not reading it, but want to know why it's bad; go right ahead!

A season of Eden is a book about an "18 year old girl" who acts like she's 13. She is rich, popular, self centered, and trampy. Whenever you begin to see a slight redeeming quality in this girl (I.E. actually saying something nice about the girl with medical issues) she immediately turns around and says something that completely condescends it. God, I hate this character. Anyway, she immediately (No, really. It takes about 5 seconds) falls in love with James Christian, the new music teacher.

Mr. Christian is... a religious character. A moral character. He's boring and odd and.. I don't know what. He's 22 teaching music at a high school.. because he took CE classes when he was in high school.. AKA They wanted to make the age difference a little more acceptable because 6 years age difference is far worse than 4.

The first 60 pages are spent with Eden being in love with Mr. Christian. She goes to his classroom every morning to help him pass out papers and to pray he brushes up against her. And then finally, without any prior notice, Mr. Christian says that it would be okay for them to go to Starbucks together. And they do.

Que 50 more pages of them doing the same exact thing, when eventually they agree to meet at a beach.. in California.. where apparently absolutely every single person leaves when the sun begins to go down.. so they are alone. And he kisses her. And 10 seconds into the kiss she starts freaking out because she begins to realize how promiscuous she is and how terrible of a person she is and oh god why is she such a big tramp and oh no her life is ruined and... meanwhile, Mr. Christian is sitting there staring at her as she begins to cry after kissing him, she stands up and runs away, he runs after her, she doesn't tell him why she's crying, they leave.

And that's the end of that part. I guess he forgives her immediately? Doesn't care enough to ask? She never really comes out and tells him the true reason of her crying, just sort of a roundabout explanation.

That's all that happens until about 200 pages in. They end up at the empty Church where Mr. Christian teaches church..students.. I guess. He plays Eden a song, tells her that he wrote it for her. She swoons. And then in a flurry of uncharacteristic "WTF'isms" he pushes her against the piano, starts making out with her and then pulls out the one super hot pick up line that has been in his arsenal since he was 13: "I want to play you.... like an instrument."

In the heat of the moment, even I was caught off guard and mistook that for sexy. I was ready. I wanted this duo to finally connect in the ways they have been hinting at for 200 pages. Eden loves it, she grabs him and kisses him.. and then Mr. Christian says "Stop. We're in my church." Excuse me? You brought me to your church. You played me this amazing song and then YOU started kissing me and telling me slightly creepy pick up lines.. and now you want me to stop? Die.

Needless to say, Eden feels rejected. She gets sad on their way home and then makes some completely justified snappy quip at him after he acts like she's the one being stupid.. and he gets mad. They make up 3 days later, but that's the end of their relationship for the entire book. You can just stop reading because all that happens is she graduates and goes to his church to try and reconcile. /END BOOK.

Seriously? I guess I should have paid more attention to the fact that this has no "Adult Content" sticker on the back or something, because it's obviously made for teenagers to teach them some sort of lesson.. or something.

The book is full of characters I do not care about. A heroine who is stupid and obnoxious and a male lead that doesn't know what he wants and doesn't really care. I didn't even care about the girl who has no hair and seems like she's about to die at the end of the book.

Not to mention the exaggeration of an 18 year olds use of the insult "Retard." This is probably the most annoying thing in the book besides the sexual frustration. This girl calls everyone retarded or says they're acting like a retard or whatever. I cringed every time I read it.

Moral of the story: If you're in a student/teacher relationship, wait until after graduation to go beyond making out in churches.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Season of Eden 13. September 2008
Von Joseph L. Mardesich - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I couldn't put the book down. Outstanding fast paced page turner. As a teacher of many years, I could identify with the story. Many teens will better understand their own personal issues. Warwick creates two fully developed, compelling characters. I found myself wondering how she could possibly bring a resolution to the story that would satisfy the reader. She resolved it for me.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing 16. August 2012
Von Katherine - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I wanted to like this book, I really did. It had an interesting premise with the student being the aggressive pursuer rather than the teacher. But I just kept waiting for something to happen, for something to progress beyond a little bit of banter... and it didn't. The writing never grabbed me; I never felt the tension or the passion. Maybe it was because I couldn't connect with Eden. She just seemed so shallow, so much the typical beautiful and popular rich girl, and I couldn't find any emotional investment in what happened to her. Plus, the "issues" she had felt unconvincing and all her problems were resolved way too neatly at the end. Mr. Christian wasn't much better. While he was more likeable than Eden, I found it very hard to believe that he was only twenty-two years old (it also said he was twenty-one on one page, but twenty-two was used twice so I'm going with that). I'm twenty-two myself, and I don't know anyone my age, male or female, who talks the way he does. I would have thought he was at least in his thirties, if not older. All in all, I felt let down and disappointed after reading this. It was slow and uneventful and read like a high school student's PG-13 fantasy.
