Read on April 22, 2012 — I own a copy, read count: 1

Third time was DEFINITELY the charm for this book. The first time I read it, it was meh. Second time, I gave up and didn't finish.

This time, I don't know what happened, I just must have been in the right mood for it. ST's writing is amazing: the angst, the pain, the sorrow, the love...my chest hurt the whole time I was reading it.

A couple of little things kept this from a 5 star, but somehow this book has quietly become a favourite.

4.5 stars.

Catherine Did you ever continue your reread?


Tammy Walton Grant Hi Catherine, just found this comment! Damn GoodReads. I ended up just putting it aside. One of these days I'm going to read it, and understand it, and like it. >:\


Catherine Good luck with that. LOL.

Zumbagirl This is her only book I haven't read and I own it. Her writing is amazing but not sure I'm ready for the pain


Tammy Walton Grant LOL - yup, this one sure is angsty. Or maybe the word is poignant? Bittersweet? A definite undertone of sorrow and loss throughout, for both H/h.

Definitely worth the read, though. ST writes beautifully.

Book hoarders with an overwhelming sense of their own mortality can't afford giving a book three tries. :D

Hey, I actually opened Mara to read a few pages before mailing it -- just to be sure. Bwahaha.

Sheer contrariness, more likely. But thankee, ma'am!
