it was ok
Read from December 21, 2011 to January 03, 2012

I have to say, I could not stop reading this book. I couldn't quite understand what I enjoyed about it until half way through where there was a paragraph given to what I thought was 'the point' of the story - which up until then had been a bit boring. Being so excited by my realisation of what drew me into the book I eagerly kept reading, only to find that what I thought 'the point' was - wasn't. I still really don't understand what this unnecessarily tragic story was meant to be about and I don't really care anymore. I highly doubt I will bother watching the dvd as I am so frustrated by the ending of this book. I was looking forward to writing this review half way through the book! Now I just wish I had stopped reading it halfway through so I didn't have to go through the disappointment of thinking this book was brilliant (I even passionately discussed it with my partner) and having it turn into the load of crap it became.
