I don’t know what it is about the books I’ve been reading, I didn’t finish The Way of Shadows, this one or the book I read after this one.
I made it to chapter 12 and I just couldn’t make myself read it anymore. By the time I got to chapter 7, I already had five problems with it.
First of all, they’ve only known each other a few hours, they hardly talked to one another and they’re already getting hot and heavy? Now, if it’s written well and done in the right way, I don’t really mind that. As long as the connection doesn’t feel forced, which it did in this case.
Second of all, when he’s driving he doesn’t seem to watch the road a whole lot, he’s mostly watching her. I kept expecting him to adjust the steering wheel or something. Same thing with walking, he can apparently walk straight while looking in a completely different direction.
Third of all, he said I love you on the phone and, honestly, I can understand being upset hearing that after the make out session but she basically turns into a jealous, spiteful teenager. Settle down girl, you’ve only known him a couple of hours.
Fourth of all, when he does tell her who he’s talking to, his mom, she just rips into him until he tells her that his mom is babysitting his daughter. Then she turns to saying she’s sorry. That just angered me and it’s a classic case of foot in mouth syndrome.
Fifth problem was after they’d spent all day driving and were at a hotel, she starts thinking about how he’s acting different than how she knows him. You don’t know him! That’s the problem!
As you can see, this book really frustrated me. The writing was simple, too much so, and it seemed that even though they were in danger, it kept getting pushed to the back almost as soon as it was brought to the front.
Thank you for reading my review.
