It's one of those made for TV movies kind of romances. At times, I loved it, and then at other times, I wished it related to the audience a little more. Definitely a good light read, a good beach read, but not a great solid read.
Such a heartwarming story. You go back and back with the characters. It's never easy to pick a side. And just when you think you've figured it out, you turn the page and change your mind. There were a few times that I was like, 'Come on. No way.' Keep going. I thought the narrator did a fantastic job with the delivery and pronunciation. It wasn't easy at times, but it was commendable. This isn't a light read, and you'll have to stay focused. But it's well worth the time put into it.
This book is less dramatic, more daily issues. It isn't some overdone sappy story about heartbreak with too many details to make it realistic. It's ups and downs, happy and sad where you feel for the characters. Three very different characters. It made me want to laugh and then cry as you journey through three families, three very different people, three lives all wound together. A must read.
In the end, I dare you to pick a side. I like that the ups and downs have you battling with and then defending the main characters. There really is no right and wrong, no way to choose a side when you can see both of them. The write does an excellent job of portraying the joy and sadness through this long journey and getting you to see the "light" at the end.
I enjoyed the accent.
I feel like the title fits. It's as compelling as the story.
Yes and no. It's a bit different from anything I've ever read, a good "in between" if you're burnt out on reading the same genre over and over. I can see why some people rate it low, as it may be so out of the norm. It's compelling at times and confusing, but the winding up and down of not knowing what the next page will contain kept me going. I'd give it a solid 3.5.
Sure. Why not?
