haha "If she were to become a courtesan, it was clear that something would pierce her, and very soon." this line just broke me, I couldn't stop laughihaha "If she were to become a courtesan, it was clear that something would pierce her, and very soon." this line just broke me, I couldn't stop laughing... :D
MAYBE SPOILERS, so don't rant it's been warned.
I will give this book 4 starts. Caro is idiotic, but I will give props to Claudia Dain for giving me a change of perspective every so often in a chapter. Specially what I liked most was exactly that, that Caro was so foolish; and Lord Ashdon haha I would have to say he was rather intelligent and good at betting. so that is why 4 starts for the twisting of the story. It was an okay story, I was waiting for him to fall in love with her, and so she wins blah blah; turns out it was all planned well if not all then as if. So that made me change my opinion of the story when finally everything became clear. A twist of the story would be what made it a whole lot better. Not a common book with everything being expected. It wasn't rare or so unexpected but props to the author for not doing the same as so many books out there.
character I liked the most was of course Sophia, Sophia you manipulative genius ;) but Anne, she goes maybe without notice. I liked her character here a lot I can even dare to say I can write a long paper about her, maybe even longer than Caro's and of course more interesting way more interesting. I would like to know her story. yeah her mom a whore blah blah there you go. But perhaps more insight, specially if done like this one, from others perspective. ...more

I started reading this like a month ago then stopped because I started working; so I saw this today and decided to start were I left I had completelyI started reading this like a month ago then stopped because I started working; so I saw this today and decided to start were I left I had completely forgotten about this book. But it's a really good book so far :)
OK I'm almost done, but I don't want to finish it, i don't know whats going to happen next but its perfect in its own way right now. It's just a simple book, at the beginning i didn't know if i hated it or loved it. I was thinking what to rate it first i thought maybe and I like it stars, then maybe I didn't like it; it's an ok book but nothing really happens, then back to I like it starts, maybe that's good I like it, not loved it it's simple like the book. As I keep reading though my head just focuses on the book, and I can't think straight I have to say for it being a really simple book, It got to me. Maybe it's simplicity I don't know but it makes me want to be more, think more, I don't know It's something strange. I have to say right now it went back to the I loved it kind of stars which surprises me, it really does. I didn't think it would have that effect on me.
Hector, how music just comes to him, maybe it WAS meant to happen. Debbie, oh that girl seemed boring to me and maybe she was. I cared more about Hector's story at the beginning. But at how everything connected: Debbie is not that bad after all and all those boring episodes that happened to her, made her who she really became to be to me. I am a couple of pages to finishing and I don't know if I want to finish it's a bittersweet feeling. I want to keep going to see what happens, but what if I don't like what's coming up, I have my OWN theories ;)
I guess I'll keep reading and posting... never have written so much about a story before, this is the impact it had on me.
Ok so I have to say a tear formed in my eyes when I finished this book. Not because it was sad, which it was a little but because I finished it and didn't want to. Wanted Debbie to say yes to Lenny. Wanted Debbie to kiss Hector, but for now I loved this book, hope there's a part 2 :) Or just a book about a transaction when older. OHHH about that, the transaction in this book from like kids to teenagers, and I have to say this is like reality the way the book its written, it's just like those normal days that you feel like whatever you feel but then those days add up to something and besides that I think the little details of this book are so true, and this is what makes me like it more :)...more
