A sad tale of how we can all be broken.
As I read this book, I became more and more nervous about what would happen to the characters. This is a book that you know from the onset will not have a happy ending. The broken pieces of the characters could remind you of how easy it is to create another reality.
The writing is quite good. The author describes history and love in a unique manner and gives the words a new voice.

The story is definitely unique and I find myself thinking that an entertaining movie might be able to be made from this. This was the first book I have read from this author but I found it difficult to stay interested. The writing style bored me and almost from the beginning I just had a feeling of dread. After I would quit reading for the day or night I just felt a bit depressed rather than being anxious to pick the book up again, but I got through it. I believe the author wanted one to be sympathetic to the main characters, but I actually couldn't stand them. The decisions the characters make in the book seem so unrealistic and so irresponsible, I found myself frustrated. Maybe in that way the author does a good job because they do get some kind emotion out of you whether it is bad or good. This book was not right for me but others may just love it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
