SPOILER ALERT!!! SPOILER ALERT!!!!!
This posting will have a major spoiler alert to the book and movie. If you want my opinion on it quick and dirty without the spoiler, here it is: It was good. Read it.
I liked this book. I really did. But I was growing increasingly frustrated while they spent their lives with the wrong people and kept missing their opportunities to be with each other. I’m a girl who likes her happy endings, and this didn’t happen!!!
This man can write a beautiful book, I was even tricked into thinking it was a lady writing it for awhile even though I had read the author’s name and everything. It really is a beautiful story.
Now comes the spoiler. Are you ready for the horrendous news that had me throw the book across the room? The news that had me growling at the trailers to the movie? The news that you can probably already guess from my reaction???
She dies. They get together, and then a year later she is in an accident on her bike and DIES. DIES! Who does this?!!?! This made me so mad because I sensed that something was going to happen like two pages before that and then all of a sudden BAM! GONE!
I’m absolutely pissed at this book. Not the author, because he got the reactions he wanted, but the story that feels so real to me that it caused me to literally throw the book and snarl like I am a dog.
So. Read this book. It’s a lovely story and it has a good ending (besides the fact that you know she dies) and great writing.
But it’ll piss you off.
