's review

it was ok
bookshelves: i-own-it, 2016

2-stars according to Goodreads is "it was ok," and that basically sums up this book for me. There was nothing about it I hated; though, the scientific metaphors at times were a bit too much. Other than that, the story is engaging, not totally predictable, and heartfelt. It was a bit sappy, but that can totally be to some people's taste. I was interested enough to keep reading, so that says something. But in the end, I don't think this will be one that I rave about or that sticks with me for too long. If you're super into science and you don't see that represented enough in fiction, then hopefully you'll enjoy this one a bit more than I did. I'd probably bump it up to 2.5 stars because I am pretty much 50/50 on it.

Cynthia I felt this way also. The writing was beautiful though and that kept me reading. The ending was a bit of a letdown but I'm a romantic.
