This one was another all-nighter. And I’m really starting to like present tense, despite my previous irritation with it.
I’m not very good at the book review thing. Feels too much like a book report, and there’s something about those that just makes my brain want to shut down.
But I will say that the pacing was incredible, and the love story is super intense. Some other reviews have said it was scary, and I didn’t really get that. BUT, I’m a thriller/horror movie junky and nothing has really scared me since that kid in Pet Sematary with the scalpel. I haven’t seen that movie in like twenty years, but the image of that kid still gives me the creeps and makes me want to hide my ankles. :)
My feelings on the ending are mixed, but the girl who showed me where to find it in the bookstore, said, “It was so good and when I got to the end, I was like ‘Whoa.’” So make of that what you will. :) Overall, I loved it and will probably read it again, which is the true test for me.
