Blythe I was really looking forward to this but it's gotten horrible reviews so far, so this only confirms that I should pass on reading this. Can't wait to read your short review, Wendy!

Wendy Darling Fascinating premise (and interesting, normally great ending) that just meanders too much, Blythe. Could have been a really good book.

Blythe The negative reviews seem to not like the ending, and I can definitely see why, (view spoiler)

Wendy Darling Well..not quite. (view spoiler)

I actually didn't mind the ending so much, I thought it was an interesting choice. The majority of the book, though, tried to tackle too much, and none of it with enough depth.

Blythe Hmmm. I actually like that. (view spoiler) I look forward to your short review!

Wendy Darling Exactly! That's how I felt, too. Which is why I wish the middle part was handled with a bit more conviction. We'll see what I can come up with. ;)
