I loved this book. It was so very much better than Cecelia Ahern?s normal stuff, which I find soppy and un-original. This book was edgy, the main character although a teenager was great, you believed her tragic life events and how she dealt with them. Don?t be put off by the idea this book is about a ?Magic book? it has so much more going on and the characters are complex. The story is not predictable like a lot of her other books and I was hooked until the end.
Good easy listening with an air of mystery. I thoroughy enjoyed this and if you like Ms Ahearn's other stuff, I'm sure you will too.
"Talented author, but not a great book"
Yes and no. It was a good introduction for me of Cecelia Ahern's style of writing, and I will definitely read more of her novels; this book was a light read, but it had too many important characters that one didn't really get to know...
Definitely! Her ability to capture narrator's emotions was incredible. It's what kept me going through as long as I did, though I ultimately didn't like the book enough to finish it.
Actually, I would... it would've made a great movie!
The book was OK; Ali Coffey's performance was quite good, with the glaring exception of her dialogue. I will read more from Ms. Ahern, but this one just didn't do it for me.
