To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I wanted to like this book, but it was so difficult to get into the story that I gave up on page 57. I liked the initial part of the book about Grace and Mama G, but then when the books started talking to Sarah, I lost interest. I guess I just don't like fantasy or magic; perhaps the book ended up in the wrong book category? I find that if I can't relate to the characters or care about them, I stop reading. On top of that, the packaging of the paperback (I'm talking to you, Simon and Schuster) was so flimsy, that the cover and pages curled up and wouldn't straighten out - almost as if this book wasn't meant to be read by me. Needed heavier cover stock and paper, and that's the publisher's fault. You didn't do your author any favors here.
I like a mindless romance novel you can just burn through to pass the hours when you can’t sleep. This book is that. It’s not a bad book at all. It’s about people who are struggling to belong and of course the main character falls in love and in this book it’s pretty tame. The author try’s to invoke magic (It’s no “Chocolate”.) but it falls short and seems juvenile. If it were not not for the use of the word “orgasmic” many times and a few illusions to sex, I would have thought this was a kids love story. It has that neat as a bow all wrapped up life worked out vanilla ending.
