My Thoughts

 

The word at or @ is used to the point of distraction in this, but with it being a twitter inspired story, that's unavoidable, I guess.  The @ usage did grow on me while listening to it, despite how annoying it was at first.  There was always a part of me that wasn't completely invested in this story, maybe that's because this story is told almost entirely in IM's. {{{{I don't know}}}}

 

Furthermore, I felt the therapist was not very well written or researched, I'm not sure...what...but let's just say she didn't really come off as therapeutic to me.  The mystery aspect is was ultimately let me down, though, especially with everything involving her agoraphobia…it just seemed contrived for the sake of the story.

 

 

Will I continue this series⇜  Despite my issues, I still might, that ending was rather dubious…

My Thoughts

 

This Series has rocked, with each book upping the stakes and becoming more entwined with the next and the previous.  Seriously, just fantastic.  I highly recommend it.  After book 1, I really only liked Cassie and Dean, but as the series progresses I've come to love all these characters, yeah…even Michael has grown on me, some.  Sloan is my new favorite now, just for her comic relief, she's so serious with her on cue randomness.  Lia, it turns out is much more complex than I originally thought.  You really learn a lot about Lia in this final book, and her story is rather mind-blowing.

 

Will I read more from this Author Yes, yes and Hell yes!

My Thoughts

 

I've been reading this type of book a lot lately and I have say that this one has a completely different feel to it, not bad, just different.  The narrator, Cassie, is very subdued, like she doesn't allow herself to truly feel, and ultimately the story feels both authentic and implausible at the same time.  My feelings though, were all over the place, I was kind of spastic, even.  I wanted to yell at this girl so many times, and especially her mother.  Her Dad is no winner either, because he basically enables the mother.  This is one kid badly in need of someone to actually listen to her.  This book really made me appreciate having a loving, normal mother, even if she was taken from me too soon.  How anyone can be so fucked in head and still be allowed to breed, is just unfathomable, because loving your kid is suppose to be the easy part.

  

Will I read more from this Author⇜ I would.
