I agree. I'm in the middle of this one at the moment was was really looking forward to it because of all the good reviews, one of which was from one of my all-time favourite authors. I'm finding it very basic. I was told it had beautiful language! All I'm noticing is that the author pulls out a big word from her thesaurus every now and then... nice big words, some of my favourite big words... but they stand alone and look foreign in midst of more simple text.

I only made it about 70 pages through this. I heard SO MUCH hype about this novel, and it was just bo-ring. I like subtle, but yeesh. Plot much?

Excellent review. I couldn't agree more!

I personely agree that the author had picked out random words out
of a thesaurus there would be just one world in the middle of a plain sentence. I still loved the book as there is a very few amount of books that I don't like and stop reading half way.

I totally agree. I am so bored and want to give up also....

I read the first couple chapters of this book, but it seemed like another sappy paranormal romance. I plan to read it all one day...What is up with books lately? They are all paranormal romance with the same plots! Nice review, by the way.

I only made it about 30 pages, and didnt care for the back/forth/back forth between them. lame.

Do any of you have an imagination. good books allow you to make something out of them. But you have to have the ability to do so.

I did sound good and I think in the hands of another author it would have made a great story but this author is just so terrible at writing that it made the story unbearable
