Take a Journey with the Characters

Reviewed at: 24 : The Rules / Come Find Me

When you start to read a story here on RR there are certain elements that you come to expect.  Character actions and reactions that are to the point of tropes. Worlds that are copies of one another.

This story is not one of those stories.  Integration is driven by the unique characters that exist in its world. It is easy to hide a weak character behind the glamor of a new shiny bauble, or through adding enough extra characters that they bouy each other from chapter to chapter. Integration relys on only a few characters and develops them, it makes you feel an interest in the tragedy that is their lives and leaves you wanting to know more, to see what they will make of themselves and whether they will successfully integrate with each other and with the world they live in. 

Some stories also play on the readers nerves and emotions by layering mystery upon mystery without giving you a hope of discovering what is going on until you are hundreds of chapters in.  Integration gives you the mystery immediately, but starts to unravel it almost at the same time. Feeding the reader pieces of the puzzle in a satisfying trickle.

Integration is definitely worth reading to experience the journey of the characters within.

I could not for the life of me understand what is going on. Between character switching with no indication that it happened, the mixing up of names, and the weird font, this made for a very confusing read. I had to quit the novel on the 8th chapter, when the author switched the perspectives halfway in a very short chapter.

I honestly can't figure out how many points of views there are in the less than 5 pages i read. They are not clearly defined enough for me to tell. I can only guess that there are 4-5 different view points in less than 5 pages.

The summary should have warned me that it would be bad. The author could only write 3 sentences that could be the summary to 60 percent of the raunchy female romance novels on the market.
