It’s a dark side a lot of people, like an ancient society of vampire-hunters, would prefer to see him dead for. The problem is, Lucien’s already dead. And while Lucien seems like everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, he might turn out to be more like a nightmare. Now might be a good time for Meena to start learning to predict her own future.

See all 4 questions about Insatiable…. Lists with This Book. Only to people who want something completly unoriginal and very silly. Recommended to Ela by: Why am I telling you this? Because the phrase ‘an explosion of cheese’ pretty much sums up this book. Cheese variety number one: The main character was called Meena, her brother was called Jon or Jonathan ; their surname was Harper. Now why does that sound familiar Now I understand that most vampire novels are probably going to contain some reference to Bram Stoker’s classic novel; but the key word here is ‘SOME’, there is such a thing as taking it too far.
In fact, there is one scene where, even the heroine herself relises that she may be tempting fate and decides to have a quick skim read of Dracula in case it contains any tips After that she gets quite distressed because, and I quote, ‘This Mina was a character who, Meena remebered right away, fell in love with Dracula and Mina does NOT fall in love with Dracula!
Why do so many people think that Dracula is a love story? Are they getting it confused with Twilight?
Authors, if you are going to refer to other books, please get the details right! And anyone who thinks Mina is in love with Dracula, find me a quote to prove it. Cheese variety number two: Meena’s first love interest is called The Prince of Darkness.
Cheese variety number three: There is a vampire hunter called Alaric Wulf. Okay for arguments sake, I will forgive the fact that his name is Alaric, and Vampire Diaries got there first, Meg Cabot might have just liked the name. Do I suddenly find that his character is original and capitivating?
It’s like the author has plucked Pritkin, fresh from the Cassie Palmer series by Karen Chanceand thought to herself, ‘How can I make this character less likable, intresting and believable?
To demostrate this I have constructed a imaginary conversation with Alaric: Me- cooing ‘Do you love her? I would say Meg Cabot has done pretty well at reinventing Alaric as a character who is devoid of interesting features. I could go on to list enough cheesyness to fill a large silver platter but I’ll stop now, because I don’t really want to put myself through it again.
View all 30 comments. Jun 25, Seesen9 rated it it was ok Shelves: This book was so annoying. And I also like dogs, for the record But Insatiable was just too much for me to bear. Characters were flat, main heroine was a silly girl surrounded by even sillier people. No one is paying attention, when Meena uses her gift and predicts their deaths — why on earth would they care about something like that? And did I mention that Lucien is The prince of the darkness? Because it was mentioned in the book like ten million times.
If I think about, you could easily start reading in the middle of the book because all the interesting and also not so interesting events were recapitulated regularly. And Jack Bauer is very, very important! But still not my cup of tea.

Jul 01, Alice rated it did not like it Recommends it for: I’m so out of step with the other reviews that there must have been something I didn’t get about this novel, but come on, it’s light vampire chick lit, not Foucault. I like Meg Cabot, her YA more than her adult fiction, but have read most of her work at one point or another and absolutely loved the last Princess Diaries book.
I’m not a hater, and was really looking forward to this one, a semi-satire about vampire obsession set in NYC among celebs and soap operas.
What’s not to like? Thi I’m so out of step with the other reviews that there must have been something I didn’t get about this novel, but come on, it’s light vampire chick lit, not Foucault. The main character is a personality-free Mary Sue who, like many of Cabot’s adult heroines, seems curiously naive, which is why I think she writes teens better who has a Stackhouse-esque ability to predict people’s deaths.
She falls in lurve with a hunky vampire, who is being hunted by a vampire hunter obvswho she also seems to have some sort of feelings for although he beats her up and terrorizes her. Various stupid subplots about vampire hunters, vampire brothers, and so forth continue, most of them boring.
The clunky cardboard characters clunk through the book, at which point I skipped ahead just so I could say I had read it. Totally terrible, and I’ve read a lot of garbage this summer. View all 8 comments. I think I’ve only read a couple of Cabot’s books before and they were okay books, so I wasn’t sure I’d like this one. This was a good read. Very solid, slightly predictable, plot that has your standard Vampire, Vampire Hunter and the girl who’s stuck in the middle, with a variety of characters to chose amongst your favorites.
The writing is obviously very skilled but it took a bit to get use to the multiple point of views from different characters. It didn’t take away from the experience but ther I think I’ve only read a couple of Cabot’s books before and they were okay books, so I wasn’t sure I’d like this one. It didn’t take away from the experience but there are only a handful of books that can pull that off for me, this one being one of them, but with some effort.
I wish I could say that I liked the main character, Meena, but for some reason I had a hard time connecting with her. She’s gifted with sensing death and all in all an interesting character but had a very uninteresting job, well at least to me. She’s a dialog writer for a soap opera called Insatiable and the corporation wants a bigger demographic so they want to copy-cat a rival soap, Lust, that’s stars Vamps.
Needless to say that Meena is sick of Vamps and goes on saying that she doesn’t understand how women can find Vampires attractive and hot when really all he’s doing is trying to resist killing you Twi-haters will grin and nod at that which is true, but intentionally ironic at the same time since this is indeed a Vampire story. She was an interesting insatiabls but I found little spark for a main, and didn’t really enjoy her role till the insatable came in to play.
Lucien on the other hand is complicated, presumptuous, dark with a great tempter which I really enjoyed. He’s very commanding, strong but also gentle, very sexy in a Vamp. I really just loved Alaric Wulf, who was once a kid who lived on the street and found his calling as one of the Palatine Guards. While this did hold my interest for the most part, there were still some spots that dragged on, but all in all, Insatiable had good humor, some action, mystery and romance to please my paranormal craving and thought this was a decent read, I wasn’t blown away by it, but overall it’s a good start to what I’m guessing is a series.
I’m not sure if I’m going to continue, but any Cabot fan should get a kick out of this one. View all 18 comments. Recommended to Julie by: Oh, I’m willing to give pretty much any Meg Cabot book a try. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view insattiable, click here.
Review of “Insatiable” by Meg Cabot | Rhapsody in Books Weblog
With InsatiableMeg Cabot has thrown her hat into the ring of paranormal fiction. She’s started a series that is both about vampires, and about hating vampires and the vampire craze. I totally agree with what people have said – that she is cashing in both on the vampire craze, AND the big backlash against the vampire craze. She manages to do so pretty successfully, offering a book that has enough action and romance to hook the usual vampire fan, and also enough humor and parody to get a few good With InsatiableMeg Cabot has thrown her hat into the ring of paranormal fiction.
She manages to do so pretty successfully, offering a book that has enough action and romance to hook the usual vampire fan, and also enough humor and parody to get a few good chuckles out of people sick to death of Twilight and its like. There’s at least one speech that is almost verbatim out of New Moon, which I found funny and sad at the same time.
