Cute story for the beach or for non imperative reading during relaxing summer time. Also a great book to read during TV commercials, on a plane, or while in boring waiting rooms. This story keep your mind occupied, when you are utterly desperate for ” filler” moments. BUT, if you are looking for soul searching, uplifting, and “wow” moments, this is not the book for you.
The book lacks dynamic characterization. The characters are flat and their internal struggles and goals lack emotional depth.
The story has too many fillers–unnecessary scenes, dialogues, and chapters. Because of the fillers, the story looses its continuity and the reader is often confused and taken away from the main plot and its purpose.
The beginning scenes are extraneous to anything that happens later. And, along the way, you meet characters who are irrelevant and annoying. Finally, I did not connect with the main protagonist because of her lacks of strong internal turmoil and dreams.
Don’t you think that books should take us into a magical , exciting world rather than into a carbon copy of our boring and flat world?
