Elena Zvezdnaya: this name is known today to all lovers of the book, and it does not matter whether they read the works of this author or not. It's just that this surname can be seen in all the tops and in every electronic library among the most read, most popular, most commented, the best writers. But also the most criticized.
This author has so many negative reviews and so many detractors that you are simply surprised. If we draw an analogy, then Star Elena is the same Daria Dontsova, only for the world of romantic and humorous fantasy. And why is she so scolded?
Elena Zvezdnaya: author's biography
It must be said that there is practically no information about the author, and the writer is in no hurry to share personal information. She communicates a lot and with pleasure with readers, shares her opinion about different books, literary preferences and much more, but there are very few specifics. Here's what you can learn from different sources:
- Elena Zvezdnaya is a pseudonym. The name of the author is unknown.
- Birthday - 22ndNovember 1981.
- Residence - Tiraspol, Republic of Moldova.
- Early creativity can be found online under the nickname "Mist Witch".
- The first piece - "Dancing in the Night" - was posted on the Internet in 2009
- First edition in paper book format - "Just One Kiss" - in 2011. The Hell mercenary series was written earlier, but published later.
- Star Elena is married and has one child - a daughter. Age and name were not indicated anywhere.
We have already told about the first published works above. In total, the author has more than 20 published works, many of them in paper format, which is now equivalent to recognition of success. For example, one of the author's best series - "Academy of Curses" was published only in 2014 and sold well, despite the fact that the electronic version could be read in 2012-2013, as separate books were written. Star Elena wrote many books that were in demand among readers, for example, "All witches are red", "Bride for a villain"; Dead Games, etc. But not everyone likes these works, although the writer has her own army of fans that keeps track of the release of all new products.
Elena Zvezdnaya is subjected to merciless criticism. No, this is not a reservation: first the author is criticized, and then the book. Elena Zvezdnaya often says that she is not a writer, she calls herself a graphomaniac, a lover of typos and a symbiont of the Word program. Generallywritten with humor and true, but that was the reason for the attacks. Critics say that in this way Elena Zvezdnaya is trying to nullify all possible attempts at criticism with the wording "I'm not a writer, I'm not a professional, I create what I can." Nevertheless, according to a large group of connoisseurs of good literature, if you already receive money for your work and publish, then you need to somehow start to comply.
The second reason for criticism is that in the author's books there is a sea of sadism, more often psychological, sometimes physical, almost always with sexual overtones or overtones. There are places where it's almost imperceptible, and sometimes the whole book consists of such scenes, but THIS is everywhere. Moreover, by genre, the works belong to light love-fiction and humorous novels, where this is completely inappropriate.
The third major reason for criticism is the incompleteness of the works. Almost half of the series has no end, Elena Zvezdnaya constantly starts developing new interesting projects, without finishing the old ones. For this, the author has a big fat minus.
Well, small claims: accusations of plagiarism - not in a global sense, but that it borrows interesting ideas; various inconsistencies in the plot, flat characters - in general, all the flaws of any modern novice author.
At the same time, all the books of the writer are quite readable, most of them have a good plot and a lot of dynamics.
Who can read
This is a very difficult question. Star Elena is not the author who can be unequivocally recommended for reading, or vice versa, to advisepermanently excluded from your literary menu. Her works have a lot of shortcomings, and not everyone is ready to accept this. We have already said that Elena Zvezdnaya is similar to Daria Dontsova in the field of creativity, and both of these writers are quite in demand. But just as lovers of detective stories are embarrassed to admit that they are "addicted" to Dontsova's books, so science fiction fans do not want to voice their addiction to the work of Star Elena. Why only fans? After all, Star Elena writes for girls, and this can be seen in every line.
So try reading one of the author's books - most likely, you will like those works in which there are few sadistic scenes, for example, the same "Academy of Curses".
