I was very disappointed after reading What I Saw and How I Lied. Why? Because it wasn't what I had expected.

Yes, this book did have a lot of mysterious aspect to it and I expected that but I guess...I expected more? In what? I have no idea. I just thought the overall, the book would be better. What I did like from this was the author's ability to slowly bring clues in - little by little. There was a lot of guesswork and suspicions that I had enjoyed.

Evie, the girl who, at the end, had to choose between her family or the man she loved. I wasn't too surprised at what she chose, however, I was surprised on how she went about in doing it. I guess it was the only way, now that I think about it.

The ending was kind of melodramatic. It was more of a depressed ending with everyone relieving what had happened and wallowing in what they had learned. This was probably one of the reason why I wasn't too "yay!" about this book. But if you like depressed endings with some war emphasis, then maybe check this book out.
