's review

it was ok

Well I just finished this book, and contrary to everyone else's reviews, I didn't like it. At first, I found the characters and the short stories touching. But about halfway through, the changing perspectives just got old and confusing. I think it ended up detracting from the original bond you felt towards the characters, which led to my disinterest in the book. Eventually, I just really didn't care anymore. When the ending finally came, when everything and all the stories and viewpoints finally came together, it just fell short. All of this excitement and build up just fizzled. There was no magical happy ending, and there was also no tragic ending. It was just an abrupt (2 page) summary of what actually happened between Holly and her father, which was neither exciting nor memorable. The book was a quick read, and not terrible, but just overall boring and uneventful.
