The overall story was extremely interesting, some portions were a bit sappy sweet, but overall a good story and should make for an even better movie. The tears will be flowing so don't listen on the road if you don't relish the idea of being gawked at by surrounding drivers!
I didn't realize ths is meant to be young adult fiction. I think it is but even so, it is just plain dumb. I couldn't get thru it. The characters were unbelievable and I can't even comment on the story because I did not listen enough. And the reader? She states everything like a question? Like she's 12 and wants to run with the cool girls? I didn't waste my time. Wish I had nt wasted my money.
For a story so highly rated I was not impressed. It was definitely a sad story but not in a gut wrenching devastating painful way.
The Story is beautiful, have a box of tissue near when you listen to it. However I had a hard time picturing the character as a high school girl the voice was more suited to the grandmother... although she is clear and can portray emotion It was hard to believe at times.
I listened to the book and had to make myself keep listening. Plot Ok. Narrator Ok. Just not my type of book. I kept wanting her to just get it over with. To me it was not worth the credit.
I know others have really liked this, but I had to abandon it..it just wasn't going anywhere. Of course when your main character is basically in a coma ( or brain dead), its hard to get a story going. The entire time she's floating around talking about things that happened in the past. It was just really boring, she couldn't make me care about this girl.
