Book Theme Song

(this link will take you to my tumblr post with video)

Everywhere by Fleetwood Mac  --I found this by searching the word everywhere…seriously though this video is crazy and Idk…it reminded me of the book, with the tricorns it looked liked some kind of tropical port for pirate ships to dock.  Kind of crazy, kind of confusing…kind of something♫

 

 

 

⇝OVERALL RATING⇜

2/5 STARS

My Thoughts

 

The concept of time-travel in this story is genius, but to pull it off, you need to do more than just say "it happened."  I feel like it was never explained well enough for me to believe.  The characters were mostly unlikable and Nyxia, despite loving her name, was just a fickle girl who didn't know what she wanted from one minute to the next.  The only character I found remotely interesting is Kash. 

 

 

As for the narration, I'm beginning to think I don't really care for Kim Mai Guest as a narrator, her voice is too bland sounding to hold my attention.  She's fine in an ensemble cast of characters (like One Of Us Is Lying), but on her own, not so much…as least for me.  I couldn't keep my mind in the story, and I almost DNF'd this more than once.

My Thoughts

 

What happened?  I was really liking this, right up until she got to Africa, and then…it went down hill, and quickly.  I think that her ultimate message of the plight of people living in Uganda, is a solid one.  But that's the only saving grace.  It was difficult to believe Sophie went from a superficial vain bitch to this caring and loving person in like 2.2 seconds.  It was too quick, to be believable.  Everything came off as overly corny and too contrived.  Overall, the writing left me confused, almost as if the words are not put together correctly. 

Ultimately, I believe that this could have been something special, because I was intrigued by  the concept.

 

Sex Factor:  I don't know.  I think there was at the beginning and then no.  I don't think there was…see, total confusion…

The hype around this book is really something to behold. Quite a few very trusted bloggers have gushed about this one and I definitely got swept away with the hype as many others did. Ultimately, though, different strokes, folks.
