once again i’m joining the lovely taryn and talking about my favorite thing i read this week.
first, let me just say that i finished this book in 2.5 days. and these were not weekend days. they were school all day, work all evening, homework at night days. i literally could NOT stop turning the pages. two of those nights i was up until 1:30am because i just kept going and going. now that we’ve established that it’s a page turner. lets get down to specifics.
the main characters of this book, amy and nick, are both so deep and complex. when i thought i had one of them figured out, something would happen and i was back at square one. literally this book has a million different twists and turns in it, and each one makes the story thicker and thicker and ropes you in even more.
i also wanted to add that this book ended up being much much darker that i ever thought it would be. i didn’t think it would be foo-foo chick lit beach read stuff, but i never anticipated such twisted traits in both amy and nick.
for the ones who haven’t read this book i won’t go into much more detail about the main plot, but i must talk about the ending because the biggest complaint about this book i heard was that the ending was not so swell.
personally, i don’t agree with that statement at all. i’d describe the ending as fitting for where the plot had taken the characters. in some ways i found myself wishing that it ended with certain characters getting “a taste of their own medicine” per say, but as i tried to think up what a better ending would have been like, i really couldn’t come up with anything. so i say the ending was as good as it gets.
overall, this book was phenomenal! such depth in characters, plot and writing style. i am trying to get a hold of her other books ASAP. this is a must read.
next up on my list: ender’s game.
happy reading friends! 🙂
as respect to those who have not read i’m going to leave any spoilers out of the post, but anyone who’s read this beauty i am willing to go all out in the comments!! tell me your thoughts i need to hear what others have thought of this book!
