Disappointed. I skimmed pretty much all of it. Almost 300 pages of nothing happening. Which is a shame because I loved the first book so much. That's the fate of most 2nd books in a trilogy though, I'm afraid.

Loved the action. Loved Yancey's writing (wasn't too thrilled about switching POV, but that's just a personal thing). And the love interest actually gave me feels. Haven't experienced that in a book since Huger Games.

Excellent writing, funny, and thought-provoking. This is the only book I have read from Green but I feel like most of his books are the same: quiet, nerdy guy loves dark and twisted babe.

Still, I enjoyed this book. I was a bit disappointed with the

“I finally understood what true love meant that you care for another person's happiness more than your own, no matter how painful the choices you face might be.”
Nicholas Sparks, Dear John

Coco J. Ginger
“I remember when your name was just another name that rolled without thought off my tongue.

Now, I can’t look at your name without an abundance of sentiment attached to each lettter.

Your name, which I played with so carelessly, so easily, has somehow become sacred to my lips.

A name I won’t throw around lightheartedly or repeat without deep thought.

And if ever I speak of you, I use the English language to describe who you were to me. You are nameless, because those letters grouped together in that familiar form….. carries too much meaning for my capricious heart.”
Coco J. Ginger

Nicholas Sparks
“I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I've ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours. ”
Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook
