did not like it

Man, this book was really hard to read. It wasn't difficult to understand. The beginning was so chaotic, and the whole book was really choppy. I just really struggled to go through it.

And the summary really had me intrigued. I thought it sounded similar to Sherilynn Kenyon's Infinity - hey we even have a Nick, and touching the girl makes the voice go away - and thought it might be better attempt at a really cool concept. But the voice wasn't what I thought it was going to be, and I hadn't realized the "script" was actually a pre-written (well spoken) set of instructions for Nick to follow. Yeah, not so cool anymore. And even the "demonstrations" to Taryn were really cliche and dumb.

I didn't really care for Nick. For a boy, he sure did think a lot. I know that we're getting a glimpse of his mind and with the script, it gets pretty crowded in his head, but geez, he gave me a headache.

And the dialogue was pretty bad. If someone yelled out loud associating me with STD in anyway - even if it saves me from being unwillingly hit on - I would be really angry, not shrug and smile at the person. And this part was especially bad. (view spoiler)

I guess the story was okay, but with it being the way it was written and with characters I did not care for, I was just ready for it to be over, which is sad because it wasn't very long to begin with.

Katy LOL, I fell asleep once, and I tried picking it up again on three more occasions. Finally, I just made myself do a quick read through because I really was already more than halfway through, and the book wasn't really that long (but boy did it feel long for a rather short book). :/

Katy I couldn't stand her style. But if you like her style, MAYBE you'll like it too?

Word Traffic Lol. She writes books that are difficult to like. Still, I'm curious about this one.

Maybe. I've only read Starstruck, but I do like her writing style. We shall see ::fingerscrossed::.
