I really did not like the writing style in this book. Not sure I would enjoy any other books by the same author if this is the normal writing style used.
I really did not like this book. It dragged in too many places and couldn't keep my attention. I did not finish the book because I got tired of waiting for the story to blossom. I have NEVER quit a book without completing it. I have always followed through to the end but I could not make myself with this one.
I thought it was well done. I would recommend this triology to friends. It was capturing from the beginning clear to the end.
I like to read VERY much .. I'm obsessed with reading I don't have time to actually read a book so I've been a listener for three years now
it is on the top favorite but I heard better
I liked Kenji and James they are so funny and I related to them
no but I will now starting with crossed .. I hope it will be as good
It made want to cry at some point , and Kenji made me want to laugh all the time
I love this book so much but the kissing scenes didn't work with me so well
i was drawn in right away and the story line is original. The author wrote in such a unique way, your not sure what is said aloud vs. what is being written in her journal.
It's a little like The Pledge, but not really. Both are post apocalyptic America. both have female lead who must find an inner strength, and have a romeo and juliet type love interest.
I did enjoy the story, when she triumphs, i felt pride. when she fears, i was insecure, i didn't know why no one could touch her, but i didn't want them to.
I can not wait for more from this author, for a first effort, this book was most excellent.
There are a lot of descriptives used to get across one emotion, it's excessive & unnecessary. The voice of the main character is whiney & high pitched. This grates on the nerves within the first hour.
I did not mean to download, I do not like this book!! PLEASE RETURN W/CREDIT.
IT MADE ME PUT A STAR. I WOULDN'T HAVE PUT ANY.
Tahereh Mafi is an incredibly gifted word smith.
I hung on her every word and repeated her wonderful phrases to family members daily.
Miss Simses performance was unequaled to any other I've heard in years.
I purchased the next two books in this trilogy before I completed this one.
