I received an arc of the book ages ago and I just couldn't stand the characters. I put it down and figured it was just one of those books I couldn't make it through. I thought I'd give it another try, but in audiobook form. So far, I'm loving it. I really enjoy the narration; it makes all the difference!

I did finish the book on this go-round, but I still don't know how well I enjoyed it. I was seriously rooting for a switch in the final outcome. I knew it wasn't in the cards, but still... I appreciated how Sam grew after her death, but I still wanted a different ending. I enjoyed her blossoming relationship renewal with Kent and her interest in becoming a fuller person, but I really felt cheated by the ending. All in all, a good book.
