I've never reviewed a book before, but I've decided to review this one because while I LOVED the story and the characters, the writer repeated herself..Show More » sooooo much that halfway through the book I had to skip to the end because it started to grate on my nerves listening to the same situations and feelings repeated over and over and over again. It seemed as though with each new event I had to listen to the protagonist re-tell every feeling and event from the previous pages. It was as if the author thought that I was stupid so she had to repeat everything all the time just in case I couldn’t remember. I think that the writer could take out about a fourth of the book and that would make it better. I'm surprised that her editor didn't help her cut some or a lot of the rehashing just to help the story move along. This is the first book that I believe the 'abridged' version would be an improvement on the ‘unabridged’. BTW, I LOVED the Narrarator Therese Plummer!
I would recommend it, but with a warning. Some parts are extremely frustrating. They are many times when the main character could defend herself, bu..Show More »t does not. She also find a way to blame herself for EVERYTHING. I'm not a fan of self loathing characters. The twin sister was also extremely irritating. Overall, it's a good story though. The first book was better.
