I have to say that I was very disappointed with this book. I picked it up in Barnes and Noble and read the first chapter and it seemed pretty good so I bought it. Then I got home and started reading it and it got worse as the book went along. The characters weren't developed enough, it seemed rushed and some parts of the book were just plain stupid. It seemed like the whole book was building up to this one huge secret being revealed and what was the secret? The main character pissing the bed when she had nightmares? Ridiculous. Also, the significance of the bedwetting was never really explained. The whole thing with Stacey and Chad had nothing to do with Donovan's obsession with Drea or anything else in the book. It kind of seemed like it was just thrown in there.

    Meh

    This is probably an alright book.. if you can actually get through it. This has been sitting on my shelf for over a year, I've tried reading it three times now and each time it can't hold my attention. I've given up trying.

    A dissappointing read....

    I was told (forced, really) to read this book from a friend who absolutely loved it and the others in this series. I guess I can see the sort of dramatic appeal of the story, but I found it boring, to be blunt. Boring and melodramatic. The characters, too, were pretty two-demensional and predictable. I expected more from the story, from the rave reviews I'd heard of it.

    Doesn't live up to potential

    This book could definitely be better. The plotline is good, but it felt very rushed. This is one of those books that if written properly, could be great, but it just lacks good enough flow in the writing.

    Nothing special

    While I dont find this book to be horrible, I dont really understand why everyone is raving about it. It is definitely an easy read, but not worth the time unless you have nothing else to do. Maybe I'll consider reading the sequels, but only if I have finished the huge stack of book that I want to read.
