Sort order. Feb 22, Ellie rated it really liked it. As a huge fan of Skins, the television series I was thrilled to recieve this book off my mum for Christmas. It was like I was watching series 3.
Skins Novel 1
I remember Freddie once mentioning that he had caught an STI in a conversation with Effy in series 4 which is described in the book because Cook and Freddie had a competition to sleep with as many people as they could throughout the novel. Personally I feel it is a enjoyable read and a must for Skins fans. View 1 comment. Feb 17, Emma Louise rated it it was amazing Shelves: bought. So first off, I love Skins. I love it like I've never loved a TV series before.
It's just, in one word, amazing. And this book does the opening to series 4 alot of justice.
Skins: Where are they now? This is what JJ from Skins looks like now
Series 4 has started, and I'd seen the first three episodes before reading this book in just under a week, so it's been fascinating to read up on what went down in Italy and France with Katie, Emily and Effy out and about. Katie as a character has really spoken to me through the novel, which was a great introduction to the la So first off, I love Skins.
Katie as a character has really spoken to me through the novel, which was a great introduction to the latest episode of Skins since it was about her. Though the book was centrally focussed on Effy, Emily and Naomi, it was worth the read. I would have liked more JJ and Pandora action. A note on the author's writing: it was well written, and each of the characters were amazingly true and real.
Ali has done a fantastic job! Mar 19, Lee rated it really liked it. I have to admit, that I absolutely love Skins. There is something about it's rawness that makes it so captivating and I thought that Ali Cronin did a very good job at capturing that characters voices, it really did seem like we were inside their heads.
But I do have a bit of a problem with the story line, it seems like the whole book was too wrapped up in sex, everything was about sex. Even Naomi and Emily's relationship which I always found to be very loving seemed to completely evolve around i I have to admit, that I absolutely love Skins. Even Naomi and Emily's relationship which I always found to be very loving seemed to completely evolve around it. Yes, Skins has a lot of sex in it but that is not ALL it is about. Also the story seemed to stop right before everything was getting good, when we seemed to really be getting into the summer drama.
Otherwise the book was entertaining and it was good to hear from the characters again. Feb 08, Erin rated it it was amazing. I was really impressed with how true to the characters voices the novel was. A must read for any Skins fan. Jun 23, Empire of Books rated it really liked it. Based in Bristol, the book takes off from Series 3 of the tv series, and tells the story of the summer that passes in-between Series 3, and Series 4 currently airing on E4 on Thursday nights at 10pm.
The book was written by Ali Cronin, a freelance writer from the UK, and captures the characters brilliantly. It feels exactly like watching the programme. The characters sound right in your head. You can believe that it's them speaking. It seems to have come easy to Cronin. It doesn't feel like too much thinking has gone into the dialogue, because it matches the characters perfectly. The only downfall of the book is that some scenes go far too quickly, taking a page or less. It does feature a fair bit of swearing, and there are a few sex scenes that aren't really appropriate for younger readers.
Feb 01, Jamie rated it liked it Shelves: young-adult. So it's a little embarrassing that I've read this book, but I am totally obsessed with the show so I guess it makes sense. I did enjoy this as a companion, but let's be honest I would rather watch these characters and listen to the awesome soundtrack than read about them. Feb 10, Mark Almighty marked it as to-read Shelves: my-wishlist. She was like "OMG. Can't believe I found it! Unfortunately, there are no stocks left.
SKINS is one of the most amazing shows ever created. Aug 24, Cora Tea Party Princess rated it did not like it. Oft, this is terrible. It's in the style of really terrible fanfiction. It's really really bad. Please, for the sake of your sanity, for the sake of your brain cells, don't read it. Jan 22, Claire Capul rated it liked it Shelves: own. I really love the Skins series and I was amazed by what I've found on a bookstore! The novel. So I immediately bought it even though the cover is a little turn off. Its nice that Skins have this untold stories stated at this book that made me understand more regarding the flow of the story.
It is also nice because I can understand more the characters and what are the things they are thinking. But the thing is, Skins the novel is like written in a TV series way, that if this is an episode, I I really love the Skins series and I was amazed by what I've found on a bookstore!
But the thing is, Skins the novel is like written in a TV series way, that if this is an episode, I might give this a 5 out of 5 but for me Skins the novel is losing the novel touch in it. I love Skins on TV but I think with books, it will not work out.

Oct 08, Chippy Marco rated it did not like it Shelves: 1-star. Seriously, this is what they put out after that great series? I didn't even finish this it was so boring. R18, you've got to be joking. Just because it's got swearwords and some lame sex scenes doesn't make it R I'm not going to say anymore, because I wasted my money, so it doesn't deserve a real review. Feb 27, Hanaa rated it liked it Shelves: don-t-do-drugs , teen. Some parts were good, some parts were right well terrible.
