** spoiler alert ** I don't know why but I couldn't quite get into this book.
There were good things and bad things about Wildwood Dancing. I'll list the bad first
-Beginning seemed to drag on
-There wasn't enough of the Dancing Glade. I mean, I understand that most of the story had to be set in the real world to make it work but there just didn't seem to be enough fantasy.
-Jena never shut up about her responsibility. All she ever did was whine and whine and whine. I wanted to punch her by the end of the book.
-Tati was pathetic. She fell apart every second she was away from Sorrow, she needed him to eat and breathe, pretty much.. It was disgraceful and a horrid example of 'love'.
-The other sisters deserved more of a story, to be honest. I wanted to know more about them.
-There wasn't enough Gogu. He had a small sentence here and there. I felt like he should have said more as her closest friend and someone who sat on her shoulder 24/7

-Tati left in the end. Haha can you tell I can't stand her?
-Jena got Costi in the end... I loved that she could be happy and Costi finally got what he wanted after being cheated out of it so many years before...

Ehhh. I haven't finished this review but I will later......

Kira This comment amused me.... sadly, I'm very amused by pessimism. I'm actually enjoying the book, but hey, I'm in the "dragging on" begining!

message 2: by B. (new) - rated it 2 stars

B. Tati ruined this book for me. Talk about a pathetic, obnoxious character. I just wanted to slap her every time she showed up.
So that whole situation between her and Sorrow was supposed to be love?... To me, it was just some kind of sick and very disturbing obssession. And it wasn't even interesting. Anyway, I completely agree with your review :)

Cathryn Oh my goodness, I was reading reviews, waiting for someone to mention how irritating Tati was. Thank you, thank you. :P So. Yeah. I agree with that. And basically all of the rest of your review. :)
