Hello everyone!
When I saw that Giselle would have this book tour, I definitely would not resist to sign up,

because thanks to her he had found the first book of this history, Stim.

You can read Kaleidoscope, perhaps unread Stim, but I recommend reading Stim much as it is one of those books that surprise you so much that your reading is so light, divine and you know Chloe from another perspective and in fact from the first book I loved his character.

Kaleidoscope by Kevin Berry is the perspective and story of Chloe, after what happened in the book of STIM, an earthquake that shook Christchurch, New Zealand, in September 2010.

This story is narrated by Chloe, a bipolar Aspie (person with Asperger's syndrome), clarified that already had an idea of ​​it by the prospect of Robert in Stim,
first instance but delve into the thoughts of Chloe since the beginning of this book was a delight.
The desire and doubt as would be the lone voice of Chloe, but the author showed that Chole also had much to say and taking the thread of the earthquake event shows the struggles and successes that will impose on the lives of Chloe and around . Is more intense than the story of Robert, Chloe has a respective fixed because of their condition but to get a sudden change the whole structure of the system life changes and having to handle it is difficult and sometimes drives and sometimes from a funny perspective because of the timing.

What I like about this book is the fact handle the disease a serious point, but in a light so that the author can understand, and added with romantic and funny moments that flow naturally. Chloe is more explosive, more energetic and less peaceful than Robert, but at one point they share much in common. And it is those couples who love are.

With this book reaffirmed that Chloe is my favorite character, is so real and natural, and although it has so strong adversity is one of those characters who come to stay among your favorites. You could see that it is simple and light but this book with great content and a story worth reading. Shows much love that the author has his characters when writing, not put aside the fact of giving voice.

I had fun, I would put it, I laughed and I suffered really Chloe, and is something one appreciates when a book goes well with your hands.
