Goodsreads Summary: Mara Dyer doesn’t think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
She believes there must be more to the accident she can’t remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously unharmed.
She doesn’t believe that after everything she’s been through, she can fall in love.
My views: Firstly, I love the cover!!! OK, moving on…
This book messed with my head. Seriously! I loved the cover and dived in. I think the book is better suited for a movie unless you have a very creative imagination. I do have a creative imagination but still, it’s easier when it is on the screen than in your brain. The book interested me from the very first line which is a very good thing. It is a sort of page turner, almost. You want to know what happened, what will happen. And you read on.
- Creative concept, well dealt with.
- Nicely etched characters.
- The pace of the plot was just right.
- Good understanding and utilization of psychological knowledge and well defined.
And well, there is just this mystique quality to the book that I loved.
Not so good
Why does a fallen-in-the-gutter girl (excuse my language) always strike the handsome, rich and caring guy’s fantasy? Does that ever happen in real life? I mean EVER, seriously! Ridiculous!
Some things I believe are not clear in the book, or may be they aren’t to me. They don’t resolve fully and I am kept wondering. I know some authors like to keep the writers wondering but things just didn’t add up here. (I’m not talking about the Sequel, I know some things will resolve in the next book but I’m talking about things that were explained in this one and aren’t clear and I don’t think they will be mentioned in the next.)
The second half of the book didn’t work out too well for me.
Should you read it? Umm, I am not so sure, may be, give it a try. I liked it for a one-time read.
3.5/5 stars – somewhere between I liked it and I REALLY liked it.
