This book was okay. The reader did a great job. I just wasn't impressed with the book.
This was my first.
If it was a movie, I wouldn't watch it. There were too many stretches to make the plot work. There were too many coincidences. Also, this was so formulaic that there were almost no surprises. The author gave so many obvious clues that it took away any mystery. This book was very dumbed down from some of her past work.
This book was a nice way to pass the time. The story line was pretty interesting. The author did a very good job on character development. However, the story line is pretty juvenile. There are several plot holes that could have been better. The author also tends to overuse certain words and phrases so that they become annoying (for example - "collarbone").
This was not a bad book at all, but did not leave me wanting to read another. Perhaps this was just written for a younger audience.
This is a gripping story that pulls you in and keeps you focused from start to finish. The author's way of maintaining the first person perspective by way of their thought process as they recount their experiences makes you feel like you are in the story. It's very immersive! Claire Danes does a fabulous job of reading this book. She makes the character really come to life.
The ending was a complete surprise to me. I wanted more!
She was a perfect fit for this character. Her tones and pace were could not have been better. I could actually picture her in this role.
