    One thought on “The Givenchy Code”

    1. I ve categorized this book as chicklit for a couple of reasons a the protag is a young, attractive fashionista favourite designer Givenvchy No points for guessing, sorry , and she s in a bit of a pickle and there s a man involved Well, two men One good, one bad You get the idea b , I have a chicklit shelf here, and c , I didn t know what else to call it This book is different from all the other chicklit books I ve read because it s also a bit of an action thriller along the lines of The Da Vinci [...]

    2. I found these three books that had a play on words in which fashion and designers took center stage Hooked The first book is The Givenchy Code and it is one thrill a minute mysteries, that I love Including puzzles, clues, hints and deadly dangers Melanie is a girl that at one time appeared on a reality show and when she receives a message alluding to that, she wants to ignore it It is called Play or Die after all and that pretty much freaks her out, to begin with With promises of riches beyond h [...]

    3. i hated this book i picked it up because the blurb on the back tricked me into thinking it would be a fun beachy summertime read with a proactive, intelligent female lead NOPE the writing was sub par, the characters were flat and contrived, and the plot took a backseat to conspicuous consumption and the cupping of various body parts.

    4. Jajjajaaj Am este libro, hay que puro observar la portada y saber que ser de aquellos, y lo es ME encant el modo en que la protagonista maneja la historia, resolviendo el conflicto del cual pende su vida todo el libro El aparecido y ayudante bienvenido, y me sorprende ver como el loco desquiciado toma control del mundo Definitivamente digno de leer.

    5. I read this on the airplane I gave it 2 stars because of the fact I finished it but I was on an airplane with no other alternatives It was super fast because you skip entire sections and miss nothing , took no imagination, characters were 1 dimensional I should have brought Persuasion and re read it.

    6. This was a fun, very easy and quick read Great for a rainy weekend when your not looking to get into something too heavy or intense The only part that I didn t enjoy is the main characters obsession with fashion It made her appear shallow, simple and silly at times.

    7. Sell Me in a Sentence It s like the book movie Nerve about a violent video game come to life with fashion references and The Da Vinci Code vibesShort Synopsis Our main character, Mel, gets recruited as a victim in a horrible video game come to life called Play, Survive, Win or PSW She is joined by a hunky guy named Stryker well, his first name is Matthew who is assigned to be her protector Mel and Stryker have to solve various clues around Manhattan to avoid the PSW assassin assigned to kill Mel [...]

    8. He terminado este libro que parec a tan prometedor y debo decir que ya al final me ha costado, dir a que le ha faltado un poco m s de profundidad Los primeros cap tulos fueron geniales pero a medida que avanza la trama se vuelve m s tediosa Entiendo que este libro es como una mezcla de thriller con chick lit pero me parecieron fuera de lugar los momentos de pasi n mientras los persigue un asesino Un punto a favor Por otra parte Melanie y Stryker me han encantado por lo cotidianos que parecen Por [...]

    9. Read this years ago and remembered it fondly Reread wasn t as satisfying Too many episodes like, I started freaking out and he massaged my shoulders But it ended strong enough I will try the sequel.

    10. Almost did not finish this I usually like J Kenner s books This one written under Julie just did not hold my interest Sorry

    11. 3,5 En general me ha gustado, no pod a parar de leer porque tiene mucha acci n Le resto nota por el final, que me ha dejado como a medias, ha bajado el ritmo demasiado de golpe para mi gusto.

    12. I ve never read the Da Vinci Code, or seen the movie, so I have no idea how much of this is similar Melanie does compare herself a few times to Jennifer Garner, the heroine in the tv series Alias, and I did watch and enjoy that one years ago Melanie is a smart girl, with a flair for math and a passion for fashion, especially shoes She is doing odd jobs to pay for college and is just walking a few dogs when her ex boyfriend finds her She has no intention whatsoever to hook back up with him, but h [...]

    16. Julie Kenner is one of my favourite authors She of the Good Ghouls Do series and the Demon Hunting Soccer Mom series, her writing is usually full of humour and zany actions The Givenchy Code follows in this tradition, except it is missing the supernatural elements.This novel finds out heroine, Melanie Prescott, stuck in another series of dead end jobs She is studying math and history at university and is a wizard at codes Suddenly she is sucked into a live action version of a on line video game [...]

    18. Despite my initial irritation at the rather silly, airy fairy opening to the book, it got much better once you get past the first two chapters and the real mystery begins to unfold.My favourite part of the book is probably how nerdy is the new cool in The Givenchy Cocde Mel is a maths genius and puzzle code cracking extraordinaire, the last hobbies you d think she d possess, considering her obsession with brand name shoes and all things fashionable And her nerdy interests are exactly what gets h [...]

    19. My first thought when picking up this book was I dont know anything about the davinchi code I didnt even see the movie Fortunately, the book doesnt tie in with the movie at all Although there isnt too much character depth It is a fun read It was fast paced and I learned some new things about codes that I didnt know At all Character wise, I think the author did a good job In my opinion, I feel that what makes a book really good is the its characters are relatable, but not too much so Mel is a sin [...]

    20. I don t know what it was about this book, but I found myself laughing anytime the main character Mel s high fashion, haute couture thoughts were immediately followed with some reference to her brainiac self in cracking ciphers and codes or vice versa All the while she is living out the nightmare of an online game being played out in real life Mel runs around NYC with her hot ex Marine protector, avoiding an assassin The ending is totally predictable, but the very tongue in cheek references to po [...]

    21. I loved the plot of this book A billionaire makes it so that his famous online game is to be brought into the real world after his death The game essentially involves only three players, an assassin, a target, and a protector The target is assigned a protector and is given a starting clue which leads to another clue and so on The game doesn t end until either the target is killed or solves the final clue It sounds simple, but there are rules to the game and it s really fun to watch the characte [...]

    22. When you read the description of this book, and at times when you are reading it, you just think, this is the silliest, craziest thing, but somehow that works in this book s favor I loved this book, and could not put it down The plot was interesting an original, fashion meets the DaVinci code type thriller There was drama, humor, sarcasm and so much I loved the two main characters Melanie was the expert on all fashion, but with a math and history degree, a sharp mind and a wicked sense of humor [...]

    23. BEST PARTS The real life tie ins The fantasies about bumping into celebrities, shopping on Fifth Avenue, about being Sydney Bristow in ALIAS It makes the novel something that every fashionista girl can relate to And Stryker Yummy.WORST PARTS Not having ANY idea how to solve any of the clues myself You go thinking you re intelligent, and then you can t decipher diddly The good part is that it s a novel and you don t HAVE to decipher anything The book does it all for you REVIEW A WONDERFUL girlie [...]

    24. Okay, I ll admit it I m a serious sucker for a good treasure hunt mystery And when you add in humor and romance, there s no way I can resist This book was awesome I loved reading about Mel and Stryker And I love that the clues weren t completely simple to figure out I knew a couple of the equations, but I didn t figure out the clues any quicker than Mel did I also found the POV changes really intriguing It worked for the book I did start talking to the book near the end when things got a little [...]

    25. I liked it 3.5 stars Melanie Prescott, graduate student and fashion junkie is on the run from an assassin She s being protected by handsome stranger and former Marine Matthew Striker They are all playing a real life version of an online computer game called Play Survive Win She must solve obscure codes and clues and reach the end of the game or she dies My mother always said that video games were bad for you.So it s like The Da Vinci code minus the religion part with lots of sex thrown in for go [...]

    26. Fast paced and an awesome concept Unfortunately, it was horribly exicuted It read like bad fanfiction, and the characters were not very well developed even for an action story What exactly did her editors DO, I wonder I feel like with a little help from the people who should have done so, this book could have been a lot easier on the eyes and brain That doesn t mean I haven t gone out and immediately started reading the next in the series With far lowered expectations, of course

    27. A cute and light read, perfect for beach reading Just a few pages in you already know the plot, but that was okay because watching the characters solve the puzzles was entertainment enough This isn t a deep book at all, the puzzles aren t complicated nor are they really given to the reader to figure out, but if you have a passing interest in puzzles and codes you ll be entertained enough by their use.

    28. This book was awful I was looking for something quick and easy to read, and it took me over a week to get through it just because every time I picked it up I had to put it back down While the premise was interesting enough, the execution was lacking And I m not a fan of the mystery suspense meets romance novel The characters were one note and the ending was contrived There was nothing good about this book except finishing it.

    29. I picked up this book because I had enjoyed the Demon Hunting Soccer Mom books written by this author Melanie Prescott, graduate student and lover of fashion is forced into playing a real life version of an online game that features assassins and targets She is the target She is assigned a good looking helper and they run around NYC Manhattan trying to find clues that will find her an antidote to a poison Enjoyable book.

    30. This was a fun mashup of shopping meets multi player gaming, and in this case the online game moves to the real world with fatal consequences But the process of solving clues at every step in the adventure was a bit disappointing There was no chance that the reader would spot the meaning of the clue you had to wait around for the protagonist to come up with several obscure interpretations, one of which would turn out to be correct Still an interesting venture.
