Clear rating

A mediocre novel. I thought that the plot did have potential and from the description it sounded like it'd be very interesting. Unfortunately, it definitely wasn't gripping, though I did speed through it. Despite the subject matter, it didn't really provoke any strong emotions within me and I couldn't seem to connect with it. The main character did seem to have a connection with playing an instrument though and so if I could have related to this, perhaps i'd have enjoyed it more. It didn't have a huge impact on me and nothing particularly interesting happened. A quick, easy to read book, but not a book that I'd recommend.

Laura Newcombe My thoughts - and rating - exactly. Glad to see I'm not the only one who feels this way.

Stephanie (Stepping out of the Page) I'm surprised with all of the high ratings that this book gets. I can't seem to identify with all of the amazing reviews, which is a shame.

BeccaJane Took the words right out of my mouth! Perfect review.
