CRY!!! Yes I did it. I cried the entire book. Goodness. I watched this movie a while back and I cried so badly. My friends keep saying this is how the book ended so I wanted to make sure. Now I'm off to the sequel.
I couldn't stand the narrator. It was distracting how awful she was. I enjoyed the aspect of the book that related to the car crash and hospital, but the backstory of her musical career was excessive and boring.
I had a hard time getting into the story as I felt it very stereotypical because of the plot in itself -with the car accident and girl's out of body experience which are very easy plot lines that you can find written by any creative writing student- but also because of the use flashbacks and the way they are written. I usually am very fond of flashbacks and other literary devices to change the timeline of events but this didn't quite work for me. It was just too much told and not enough shown for my own liking.
But in the end, the performance made it worth it. There were times when the reader really got the emotion across through her voice and these moments were quite nice.
