    What disappointed you about Green?

    The best analogy I can come up with that explains what bothers me about this book was this. It felt like I went on a blind date with a girl, and everything reminded her of her ex boyfriend and all she did the whole time was tell me about how wonderful he was.

    "It reminds me." or "It made me miss" is what is said over and over and over. The character in this book had about 3 things happen to her in she was young, and she doesn't get over it. It felt like half the book was her have something happen and then "It reminded me of""or it made me miss…" insert one of the 3 things. I GOT IT, IM READING THE BOOK(Listing). I am listing to your story, I got that info already. Ill except if it happens 10 times or so….but it was sooo much more. And once you get half way through the story and there is progress in her life, all she does for the rest of the book is think about the earlier half of the book you just read…AND THOSE 3 things. I GET IT. I am listing.

    I listened to the whole book giving it the benefit of the doughty and really hoping that the last chapter, last page, last sentence would blow my mind and make everything make since,,,but it didn't. This is the fist audio book i truly hated…..but to say something nice, the reader was good.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    it ends.
