Read in September, 2011

The premise of this book was so promising, that I was itching to read it right after learning about it. I was looking forward as to see the how the novel would tackle the complexity of emotions that could only spring from such a situation, excited to see how the two people who are unlikely to be seen together at normal circumstances would help each other with their personal situations and find themselves falling in love...

But alas, I was dismally disappointed at the execution of the novel. The elements were all there, but unfortunately they were ineffectively utilized to stir up any kind of attachment (emotional, intellectual, psychological) from its readers. The characters and the story were so poorly developed not to mention that the conflict turned out shallow as well... (view spoiler)

Oh, I feel so sad after reading this. I was really really looking forward to this, and my mind is reeling at the 101 ways this novel could have been better. I'm giving it two stars for all intents and purposes, because I loved the premise, and somehow that makes up for it, despite being utterly disappointed at how it was written.

I'd still say it's an okay read, but heed my warning, if you were also bedazzled by the blurb like me.

Madeleine Duthie I agree completely!!! It had such great potential, I was so excited to read it, but was left quite disappointed.
