bad form, dear watson

ok, i'm sorry to the people who liked the book, but this was probably the worst book i have read for a long time. there is no plot, and it's really short. do not read this book, it's a waste of time.

    OK Short Read....

    I saw the movie a little while ago and then decited to read the book. Aquamarine, by Alice Hoffman was just so-so. It was really short and took me about a half-hour to read. Sometimes short books aren't bad books but this one, well there just hasn't much feeling put into it. I enjoyed the movie much better which I quite seldom that I choose the films over books but in this case it's true. In the book the charector Aquamarine was set as a snobby, and really kind of an unlikable person. Where as in the movie she seems a lot nicer. Watch the movie instead!

    Has it' s pros and cons

    I am a fan of hoffman's work.I see the concept of the book but it is not all that i could hope for. It is worth reading though it is heartbreaking.The book itself is very short and brings another perseptive to mermaids and if you enjoy and are a fan of mermaids then i would say probably don't read it for the memaid in this story's characteristics may not impress you. simple and enjoyable a true exsample of sweet sadness.

    Best friends must part at end of summer

    Standard story of friends who must part at end of summer so they want to spend all their time together until then. The story has a twist in that the friends discover a mermaid and the mermaid is in love. Its all fairly predictable and not a very good modern fairtytale
