The story starts with a break up. A rich lord decides that it's time to marry and tells his mistress that their affair is over. And of course after that the fool realizes that he is in love with his mistress and living without her is quite miserable.
The mistress, who can't believe what a jerk the lord was, leaves his house, starts acting again and tries to go on with her life. But it's not so easy when you bump into your ex every time you turn around.
I liked the story. It didn't bother me that I didn't know anything about the beginning of their affair. It was a solid 4 stars read.
I'd been searching for this book for years. Finally, some months ago I found a copy in used books bookshop. I rated it 5 stars and not because "it was amazing" but because it was really realistic. Mark Haddon has done a great job showing us how a kid with Asperger's syndrome thinks and how this person sees the world. He also describes how alone the parents can feel when they try to raise a child with Asperger all alone. These families need a lot of support.
It took me a month to finish the second book in this trilogy and then less than 24 hours to read the third. Really weird.
I liked the story. It was spooky and action packed. Reggie was suddenly so witty, she even made me laugh a couple of times. But horror is still not my cup of tea. There were some unanswered questions and the romantic stuff at the end was disappointing. I wasn't a fan of this particular young man.
Still, great horror story.
I have mixed feelings about this book. Yes, it was so good, I had to read one chapter after another, but I'm also really confused. I'm not sure I liked it. Does it make any sense? How do I rate it?
I've been thinking about it. I liked the excitement and new characters. The story was well paced and the setting just as spooky or even more than in the first book. But still, I'm confused, and I don't like it - the confusion, and the fact I have to wait a few months until the third book is being translated into Estonian. Because I started it in my mother tongue, I'm going to finish the series in my mother tongue as well.
I still have my doubts but here and now 4 stars. You can be sure that five minutes from now it would be 3 stars. I am confused :(
