Really interest and entertaining book. prepare to be left hanging for the sequal. But still worth the read.
This is a great book, and I hope there is a sequel! It was hard to put down. It's one of those books you want all of your friends to read so they can share the experience. A bit of an emotional teaser.
I loved the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books. This is totally different. The idea of living through multiple lives and taking the memory of your previous lives with you and your love for the one true love through the centuries until you get it right was pretty good. I don't believe in reincarnation, but it made a good vehicle for the story. Characters were pretty good and the book definitely kept me engaged. The ending was very abrupt, but now I guess the story will continue. It was good,not amazing, but good.
I enjoyed the story so much that when it ended I was crushed! The ending felt unfinished, incomplete. I hope there's a sequel in the works. It would be very cool to get Joaquin's side of the story or even Ben's.
As much as I like time travel / reincarnation books, this one never got out of its own way. The male narrator sounds like a little kid in awe of the world - for someone with centuries of living, he is just "out of it". Neither the guy or the girl has much to say that could pass for a plot - it just takes way too long to cover the details of why and how this guy keeps coming back to life and remembering and she keeps coming back without a clue that she has been here before. I stopped after a few hours - I kept finding excuses not to listen any more and finally gave up.
This drags you through 1500 years of a romance story only to get to the "end" to find out there is no end and you will have to wait for what? another serial?
You won't fool me twice. I won't come back for more
