Loved It!!!!

If I had known the other two books hadn't been translated I might not have read this book just yet. Because I don't know if I'll be able to wait for the next two books to be translated. Wish I knew German!!! Loved the book. There are a lot of characters, but at the back...
If I had known the other two books hadn't been translated I might not have read this book just yet. Because I don't know if I'll be able to wait for the next two books to be translated. Wish I knew German!!! Loved the book. There are a lot of characters, but at the back of the book is a character list with short descriptions. Must read!!!

I was extremely disappointed with this book. I read all of the reviews before I purchased it, but I feel that they are misleading. The premise of the story is great, but the execution of that premise is horrible. I understand that this is marked as a Teen book, but I still feel that the writing in and of itself was poorly done. There is very little being shown to you, and instead, everything is being told. It was not on par to many of the Teen novels out there today.

The character development was nearly non existent. The plot itself ended up being much more boring than the premise made it out to be. There was nothing that really, truly drew me into the book.

Normally, I do not like to leave series unfinished. However, this was so poorly written that I don't think I will be continuing the series. I think the author had a good idea, but didn't execute it nearly as well as I feel she could have.

    No climax?

    I was really disappointed with this book. I liked the story but there was no climax at all. I literally just read like 5 days of this girls life with no resolution at all to any of the questions brought up in the plot. Very frustrating. Very unsatisfying.
