First, I have the utmost respect for creativity. I myself am a creative. I know how hard it is to create something, to pull something from your heart and then throw it out into the world – garnering either applause or criticism.

Second, I have the utmost respect for the person who can sit down and create a story and a character and an existence out of nothing. It takes a lot of motivation and time and much more focus than I have ever been able to muster.

Third, I do not normally write negative reviews on this blog. If I don’t like a book I just don’t talk about it. Like my mother – and I am sure every mother in America say, ‘If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all.’ However, since this is a salon in which I really do want to garner debate and share ideals, I have decided to break the quiet and tell the truth.

I hated this book. I hated it. I read it to the very last page because I wanted to know what would happen, but as I read each page getting closer and closer to the end, I hated it a little more. Until, finally, I was completed, I dropped it on the floor and I exclaimed, ‘Yep, hated that.’

All in all the book was well-written grammatically and well-edited. It was a different yet interesting story, just not the sort of story I tend to enjoy. To tell the truth, if the book jacket summary was more accurate about the actual plot I would not have read this book at all. I feel as though the book jacket was selling a story, and then wham, bam the author is actually writing something else entirely. Maybe I should have done more research on the tale before reading it, but I was so taken in by the glorious cover art (pictured on right) that I just dived right in – much to my later chagrin.
