it was ok
bookshelves: 2010, bookclub

This Nicholas Sparks-esque is just not my cup of tea. Granted, I never would've picked it up if not for book club but with low expectations I did hope to be pleasantly surprised. I did like how the book explored the concept of an afterlife (or the in-between) - it's definitely a topic that interests me. And the writing was decent. It could've been much cheesier/more trite. But in the end I never really cared. I didn't feel the strength of any of the relationships, Charlie and Sam, Charlie and Tess, etc. I just wanted the book to end, not resolved.
