absolutely loved it!

this was a great story that tugged at your heartstrings! it had just the right amount of thrill, passion and twist! Just when you thought you knew what was going to happen next it changed! I really enjoyed the two narrators, I'm glad that a man narrated Evan. it's so weird when s woman tries to narrate a guy. over all I give it 5 stars! I'm almost scared to read the next book because I'm not sure if it will be as good as this.

do not buy, not worth the time!!!

I only finished this book to write a review. the main character had no growth, was not an asset and frankly I was hoping she would have died in the end. This story was about a useless teenager who had an unhealthy obsession with a boy. I would not recommend this book! It goes no where and not worth the price.

Can’t get past the first chapter

The narrator is amazing, except for the fact she sounds like a 12 yr old boy. Just couldn’t get into story line. This is a young adult book. The verbiage is more 4th year college level. No teens think or speak like this.

the cover is just as good as the story it's self

I like how the author bounces back and forth between who's point of view the story is told from. then adding in the switch between a male and female narrator helps emphasize the change in characters.

Disappointing

I got the book as I like the genre & it had some good reviews. However I found it a very slow burn, & found myself waiting for something to happen - it didn’t, not really. I finished the book out of curiosity more than anything & I don’t like to leave books unfinished.

Terrible

I think this must be for teenagers. I loved the Afterlife saga and this was recommended to me when I'd finished that series. I managed to listen for about three hours and had to return the book. The female narrator sounds like a 12 year old boy and has such an annoying voice. I couldn't bear up listen to her any longer. The story is so slow and boring and full of romantic cliches. The characters are stereotypical teens full of angst and exaggerated feelings. I've never disliked a book as much as this.
