    1. REVIEW: The Cupid War (Kinda like the TV Show Dead Like Me, but with Cupids instead of Reapers)Carter, T. (2011). The Cupid War. Woodbury, MN: FluxAppetizer: Immediately after deciding *not* to commit suicide by jumping off a bridge, Ricky Fallon slips and falls to his death anyway.Figures.Looking down at his broken and dead body, Fallon's soul is approached by an angel. It would seem Fallon had some unfinished business. He's to serve as a Cupid, fanning the flames of interest among potential lo [...]

    2. Young Adult fiction has, over the years, changed in many ways. There was a time it was sort of derided as the well of novels that weren't quite novels. Shorter, less involved, less willing to deal with deep subjects in anything but a superficial way. I think by now, and after the success fo so many YA novels and series on a wider main-stream audience, that has entirely passed. But with it's passing I feel also passes a degree of 'pass' that YA might have gotten.The Cupid War has a somewhat inter [...]

    3. I really liked this book in the beginning. There were some really great ideas, and I couldn't get over the giant cubes of love--That was hilarious. After getting half-way through the book though, the story seemed kinda rushed, and some of the transitions were a bit wonky. At one pivotal moment in the story, I turned the page and I thought I must have skipped a page or two, but no--The author just abandoned the scene, which was a shame, since it was so important. Dealing with a subject like depre [...]

    4. There is, I am sure, a great teen novel to be written about mood disorders. There is probably, even, a great teen novel written about mood disorders that is funny and a bit surreal. The Cupid War, however, is not it. Let's say you can agree with and get past the personifcation of a mental illness as an evil being bent on your distruction - which I kinda don't and really can't. Let's say you can embrace the silliness of the idea of a squad of Cupids (because when it comes right down to it that's [...]

    5. Watch out! Susan Sides is in town. An easy to read book that plays with the idea of depression and love. Which one is stronger? Of course, the answer islove. Cliche much? I give the author credit for being creative.

    6. Totally fun read! My teen daughter passed this on to me - she liked it and thought that I would too. She was right. Light Supernatural/ Paranormal YA reading, perfect for a hot summer day. It was a great break from the overly dramatic Paranormal Romance that's been dominating my TBR pile recently. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    7. The cupid war is about a boy called Ricky Fallon, who was about to kill himself changes his mind, just before he accidentally slips off a bridge falling to his death. Now,in the afterlife, he is a cupid, his job is to help his ex classmates fall in love. He gets attacked by shadowy entities called Suicides, they make humans depressed to the point where they kill themselves (which is why they are called suicides). Fallon was a victim of a Suicide,a never seen before, Suicide in human form- a war [...]

    8. I knew this wasn’t going to be fluffy and overly romantic as the Cupids were having a battle against suicides but I wasn’t forewarned for the attitude the main character had. I mean yes, I get why sometimes he was on edge but he wasn’t on edge throughout the book yet he still had a chip on his shoulder. But I do have to say I love his rebellion. If it wasn’t for that then the Cupids wouldn’t have found out about their latest threats. Pretty much shoving aside the bit of Fallon’s bad [...]

    9. The Cupid War was a book that really intrigued me. Personally, I haven't seen many books that are about Cupid, though I have an odd adoration for him. I'd explain why here, but it would take too long and is beside the point. If you want to know, contact me or something. Back to the point: the fact that this book is about Cupid caught my attention right away. Then, after I read the description, I knew I had to read this book. Let me tell you -- I really liked this book.One aspect I loved about th [...]

    10. The StarterThis book was meant to be an easy read. That's not why I picked it up, though. It sounded cool, and the cover really attracted me for some reason. The story was really different from what I had expected it to be. Ridiculously different. Actually, now that I think about it, the whole concept was ridiculous. But it still kept me interested and I did enjoy it! But the summary doesn't give it much justice. It's a lot more weird than it may have seemed. Yet still, someone, I liked it. Wow, [...]

    11. Gue udah tahu sejak dulu bahwa bunuh diri itu ngga akan menyelesaikan masalah. Well, Ricky Fallon ngga tahu akan hal itu. Eh, mungkin dia tahu, tapi udah terlanjur putus asa. Jadi ya sudah lah.Gue udah tahu sejak dulu bahwa temen yang beracun dan tidak bersimbiosis-mutualisme itu harusnya disingkirkan jauh-jauh. Kalau perlu, bikin kejadiannya terlihat seperti kecelakaan. Dan hilangkan semua barang bukti. Tapi kayanya Ricky Fallon juga ngga tahu soal itu deh.Tapi Ricky Fallon tahu, bahwa Cinta it [...]

    12. From the author who says that he writes, “Far-Fetched Fiction,” comes yet another title that - although the story is more than a bit out ‘there’ - is also a story that is comical, fun, and teaches some extremely important lessons if you only give it a chance.Ricky Fallon is a young man who was actually headed to a bridge one night to commit suicide. He wanted to just get out from under everything - especially his overly annoying friend, Susan. Talk about clingy - this girl would NOT leav [...]

    13. This book was definitely an interesting one. As it is so often for me, the cover that caught my eye (I love a good minimalist cover) and the snippet on the back really intrigued me so it came home with me from the library in my most recent haul. It was really fast paced. I started and finished it in about six hours and I was never bored or uninterested. However, it was a lot of action and there were times I wish Carter would have slowed down a bit and let plots develop a bit further. For me, the [...]

    14. When he fell off the bridge to his death, he was assigned as a Cupid. Yeah, that’s right. He was going to make people fall in love. However, Ricky’s afterlife is anything but sweet. His boss, Louis, is not very nice. And a bunch of Suicides are after him. Fallon discovers a new form of Suicide and it is up to his new Love skills to save the girl of his dreams from a Suicide’s fate. I love, love, love this book! It is one of my new favorites. At first, I wasn’t really sure I would like th [...]

    15. The Cupid War is a very unique novel with a quirky cast of characters and an unusual plot. While it wasn't everything I was hoping for, it was still a fun read.The novel starts off in a very dark place with Fallon wanting to kill himself. After his accidental death, Fallon is thrown into the life of a Cupid, someone who must help people fall in love, a task he's not all to happy with. He soon discovers that without Cupids in the world, dark entities called Suicides would destroy the world of lov [...]

    16. I have to say that I'm pretty shocked at the lack of publicity and reviews for this book - especially considering just how good it is. Maybe it's the synopsis for the book or the actual subject matter. Whatever it is, it shouldn't be a deterrence because this book is one of the most entertaining reads that I have gotten my hands on this year.One of the things I liked most about this book was the snarky attitude. There's definitely a lot of sass and it really works well in this story. Ricky has a [...]

    17. This book had such potential. What an interesting idea! Unfortunately, the vulgar humor didn't sit well with me. It's a young adult book, but I think it was aimed towards preteens. I had too many gripes within the first TWENTY PAGES to continue. The reaction to death was not realistic imho. He dies (BTW I love the name Fallon I thought of Jimmy Fallon and I thought the MC would be just as lovable as the Tonight show host. spoiler, he's not) and what does he worry about. not having his manhood. W [...]

    18. All is fair in cupid warThe Cupid War is about a teenager named Ricky Fallon. Ricky likes to be called Fallon, because his mother called him Ricky and she left him. He wants to commit suicide, because his friend Susan Sides is causing him to lose his girlfriend and always complains to him about everything. He decides not to, but ends up falling to his death by accident. He becomes a cupid and helps high school students fall in love. Then he discovers that suicides, dead beings who feed off of de [...]

    19. Wow. That's my only impression. it was a little cheesy and action packed and cute. I love the idea behind the cupids and how love between people comes to be. There were some twists and turns that came out of nowhere and although a little confusing seemed to fit the story. I would have liked to have seen a little more detail with this story bit I do like how it turned out. I was expecting a story filled with passion and romanceyou know because of the title and allbut I was kinda pleasantly surpri [...]

    20. I have no idea how I found out about this book, but I'm glad I did. The cupid concept in this book was pretty cool. Fallon goes to the bridge to jump. He just can't go on any longer. It feels like his friend Susan is sucking the life out of him. He lost his other friends and his girlfriend because of her. As he is standing on the bridge, Fallon decides not to jump. There has to be a better way. When he stands up, he slips on his cell phone and falls anyway. (This isn't a spoiler, I promise). He [...]

    21. Ricky Fallon spends his afterlife as a Cupid, helping people fall in love. The job would be cool if it weren't for the dorky pink bodysuits, his jerky boss, and attacks from joy-sucking shadowy entities called Suicides. When Fallon discovers a dangerous new breed of Suicide, a terrific battle erupts. Can Ricky save the girl he's falling for? (This is not my review. I copy pasted it from someone else who wrote it. I kinda clicked the wrong thing and then realized after. Sorry original reviewer!)

    22. Hmm. I thought I had already written a review.Well, I did not like this book.While the plot was definitely unique and nice to read, the character was despicable! He would curse at people who tried to help him, wanted to understand what was wrong, and the only person he wasn't an asshole to was a girl (of course) who was nice to him, even after seeing how much of a jerk he was5 stars/5 (rounded up).

    23. I absolutely loved this book. Couldn't put it down once I started reading it. Timothy Carter is a hilarious author and his books, even though short, are quick, easy, and entertaining. Being the girl I am, I did fangirl at the end and squeal a little bit because I am easily swayed when it come to relationships in books. I recommend to anyone.

    24. Actually about a 2.5 star rating. I don't know what I think about this book. I do know I felt it was a little preachy. Mediation, the Source, God, love conquers evil Was it funny in parts yes was I ready for this small book to end,yes. I definitely need to be sold on this book.

    25. This is an interesting fantasy novel about the afterlife and its connection to the mortal world. I appreciate certain unlikely depictions of certain things, straying away from common beliefs about certain unknown things. Overall I enjoyed the story and the atmosphere surrounding it.

    26. a quick ya book since I started back to work and have to wait for pendergast! this was a cute little book that gives a fun spin on angels (cupids) and demons (suicides). I think it dealt well with a delicate subject.

    27. The story started off great, the way the introduce Fallon as a character seemed to capture me. As the book progresses the story seems a little rushed. Overall it's a decent read and I would recommend it to younger audiences 13-15.

    28. Astoundingly mediocre. It was a cute book, but it was all action. This was happening, and then that was happening, and then something else was happening. Not much development.Read it if you have time and it's not that hard to get, but otherwise, it's not really necessary.
