MY RATING: 4 Starts


First things first…
I’m going to say the truth… I tried to read this book about 2 or 3 months ago, but that didn’t work well because I was not in the mood to read it and if I’d have finished it at that time I’d have had probably given to it 2 stars or even less because I was seriously hating it!
Now I decided to start it again… so I started with more entusiasm because for all the matters this book was on my shelf because I bought it and because I wanted to read it that much…

If I’m going to tell you what I really think about this book I have to be honest… so here we go.
I don’t know how to explain this but… this book (in my opinion) was a really really slow reading at the beginning… but not really the beginning! (arghhh!)… basically when I started reading it again I started liking it, I thought that the story was interesting and all… but then I think that this book started being a little boring and I really wanted it to end.
Just when the part 3 began (I believe) I started being excited about the story and what was going to happen next… and believe when I say that my heart is so, so, sooooo broken. I’m so sorry if that’s a spoiler for you, if you were not expecting it, if you were not expecting this story to break hearts… but that’s the truth.
I learnt a HUGE lesson reading this book. I didn’t want to read it because I had not liked the beginning of it, because it was boring… but now I read it and here I am giving to it 4 stars (4 BIG stars)… here I am saying to you that I cried A LOT, my head was hurting because I couldn’t stop crying.
I know that I said a billion times that I don’t like realistic fiction… and that’s not a lie… I really don’t like all kind of realistic fiction… just some.
I was not expecting at all to like this book as much as I did, this story is really really beautiful and I think that EVERYONE should read this book… because this story… it really teaches you a big and beautiful lesson… actually that lesson can be beautiful or not depending of you perspective… but this book has the power to teach you something!

  1. Hi! I’ve heard about so many people starting this book and not finishing because they didn’t like the beginning, and it’s such a pity because the ending is wonderful.
    Great review! You have a new follower!
