    I do not recommend anyone to read Breaking her fall because alth

    I do not recommend anyone to read Breaking her fall because although it has a good story line it lacks in keeping the interest alive and seems to lag on for too long, in my opinion it takes forever just to get to the point. Stephen Goodwin seemed to have a 5 page stall just to finish the so called suspenseful part. I People should not read "breaking her fall" because although it has a good story line it lacks in keeping the interest alive and seems to lag on for too long, in my opinion it takes forever just to get to the point. Stephen Goodwin seemed to have a 5 page stall just to finish the so called suspenseful part. I enjoy having suspense in a novel but when it gets to the point where I'm bored and don't even care about getting to the good part I think it's a little over board. The Way Us Teenagers Really Make Our Parents Feel having suspense in a novel but when it gets to the point where I'm bored and don't even care about getting to the good part, I think it's a little over board.” The Way Us Teenagers Really Make Our Parents Feel" claimed that "the plot was a very good one, but the author gets a little too descriptive in parts that really have nothing to do with the overall plot." although she enjoyed the book and didn't think that the over descriptiveness had much of an effect, this ruined the story for me. For example when the author wastes two whole pages describing his Daughter’s hobbies and what she's like down to every last detail. Also through out the whole book the plot seemed to get too busy and when the author was merging parts together it seemed as though they were just getting tangled up in each other. Beyond each and every flaw of Breaking her fall my favorite character was Kat. This was because in the mix of everything happening around her she seemed to be the only real and genuine character in the story. Being forced to get through the whole ordeal with the night she was too drunk to remember anything she persevered but never forgot who she was and what was important. Unlike just about every other character who seemed to be doing disgusting and irresponsible things in such a serious situation Kat was just trying too get her normal life back. While this was happening Tucker( kats father) was busy having an affair with her best friends mother. My favorite quote in Breaking her fall is " it is what it is" because Stephen Goodwin refers back to this as one of the kids and his rules very often however I find it so ironic because with each ridiculous situation his family is going through that quote can be said for each, I feel like that's how Stephen lives his life too. I think this because he continues to make stupid and irresponsible mistakes knowing that he has kids to worry about but acts like he's a child himself. Therefore having it easy for him to relate to his infamous favorite rule "it is what it is". That is what I thought of the book Breaking her fall by Stephen Goodwin.
