It's too boring, and Wendy Darling's review is exactly what I thought about it as well. It's a wonderful idea, don't get me wrong, but it's all about the execution of the idea that makes a book great, or in this case, not so great.
And I've always liked the idea of family killed in accident, main characters must come to accept the events, and move on with her life, but the romance killed it for me.
The stupid romance was just unnecessary in my opinion. I felt that the girl grieved for a day, then found her prince charming(I'm using that term lightly)and completely forgot about her dead family. The heck?
I'm pretty sure if that happened to me, I would've gone psycho. And not in the good way. But then again, we all grieve differently.
I like romance, it's beautiful, it's wonderful, but at a certain point I believe that this could've been a better book if it didn't have this aspect at all. Or maybe, if their love wasn't so corny and cheesy, it wouldn't been even better. If it had been at least realistic, but it wasn't.
The writing was mediocre. Nothing new, nothing special. It has been a long time since I have read this book, and all that comes to mind is the girl swooning for the male lead while her family died in a ditch. Maybe I'm wrong on how that happened but still, I just couldn't finish this book. ...more

I tried, I really did. But it was boring and quite frankly,cheesy. There was no originality in this book at all. I have seen this plot a million times before, and yeah, I was bored a page in. I don't like giving up on books, but this was just too boring for me.
And the whole thing with Kira shouldn't have even existed in the first place. Authors should not and I mean it, force their opinions on readers. With that being said, I'm putting this book on my never reading it again list. ...more

I just couldn't read it, I immediately lost interest. My best friend- who I love very much- promised me that I would and I quote, "Cry like there was no tomorrow." In response to this, I didn't. I skipped some pages and quickly realized that this book wasn't for me.
It wasn't even for the fact that there was a rape scene involved. I can handle that, I've read some pretty gore ones, but for the simple fact that I couldn't connect with the principle character. He and I just didn't connect at all. My older brother loved it, my best friend loved it.
Maybe, it was me.
Or, maybe it was the book.
I'm starting to think that it was me. I read The Lovely Bones. And that was even difficult for me, given the simple fact that I constantly found myself bored 90% of the time. But I finished it, barely.
In the end, I just couldn't do it. I had the same problem with The Help, and I loved the movie, so I don't know why I'm having trouble with this book. Maybe, it's the writing.
