I may or may not be the first to admit that I was not completely thrilled when I first picked up this book.
I'm not big into swearing and this book is FILLED with it (so that being said, I wouldn't recommend it for young ears/eyes)
But... now that I have gotten into the book, I can look past it and see why she used the verbage that she did. I won't say that I appreciate it, but I would not put the book down for it either.
More updates as the days go on :)
I did receive this book for review purposes, but am Not receiving compensation for my opinions, thoughts, multiple updates, etc. All thoughts are 100% my own.
I have mixed feelings about this book.
It is great in the way that it jumps back and forth to give you more details, but at times it is confusing because you think you know a character and you have to change your thoughts once you start reading the next chapter.
Maybe this is what kept me reading when I got to a slow part.
I do feel that I know the characters and that I can in some way relate to each one of them.
Most of my questions were answered, but as with most books there are a few that I would like to have more details on.
All in all I enjoyed reading the book and was happy with the ending.
I would recommend reading this, but if I read it again I would want the pronounacation sheet in front of me instead of in the front of the book.
I received this book to review and received no compensation for my review. my opinions are 100% mine.
I have finished the book and am pleased and somewhat displeased all at the same time.
Mostly pleased though - I would recommend reading it and deciding for yourself what you think.
Now onto some more specifics from ME:
The entire book was kind of open ended - allowing for the reader to use their "imagination" to fill in the details. This is GOOD since the subject IS dark and difficult.
It was well written and easy to read in the way that most of it flowed smoothly and made you want to continue to read and find out what will happen.
My favorite character was the uncle - he said some pretty cool stuff along with things that could be used in real life.
The mom and dad could fit many situations - and show the outcome of one path of decisions.
The sister is Really strong & I personally foresee her going far in life.
The main character Caleb was put into a difficult situation at an early age and throughout the book shows that he is a strong individual who I believe will make it.
I feel I have drawn conclusions to many of the questions, but I do not know how to do a spoiler block - so I will not go into those type of details.
I will however tell you I appreciate that I was given the opportunity to read this book, and that I have received no compensation from the author or the publisher for my comments on this book.
I enjoy reading and have been receiving books for review.
I hope you enjoy the tidbits I give you :)
There is nothing like knowing that you are almost done with a book, wanting to finish it because you have no idea how it's going to end and then knowing that it is soon going to be over.
That's where I'm at right now. Knowing that I only have about 40 pages left and biting my fingernails wondering what is going to happen..... Are they going to find him? Is everything going to turn out ok??? Is he going to remain dark haired or go back to being blond (You didn't think I was going to give specifics away did you?? I can't spoil it for you - It's due to be released in April!) What are mom? What about dad? Ahhh!!! His friend! The Girl!
Soon - I should know -
What do I think??? 4 stars :)
