I spent a good deal of time trying to figure out what to write for this review. Let me be honest with you -- I almost stopped reading it because I hated it so much but, don't just close out of this review because that was the first thing I said.
It takes time. If you're someone that: Likes unrealistic coincidences, stereotypes, rocker chicks, going back in time, and a crapload of history. You'll like this book.
I loved the going back in time and the history part -- that was the only reason why I finished. The book was good. Not the best. It took me awhile to finish it.
After I was done with my graduation test last week, I had nothing to do but read, I just got SO bored with this book in some parts.
Just stick with it to the end if you hate the beginning, I promise it'll get better.
This isn't how I wanted this review to sound. But I'll stick with it.
