A must read
I have read this book 5 times and each time I am amazed at how good it is. I just love it. The story is enriched and complimented by the use and references of literature and music.
Gabriel and Julia's story begins several years ago and develops in their individual minds what they each consider their "ideal" in a soulmate. Separately and desperately they long for a reunion. When they do meet again many miles away from Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania at the University of Toronto, it is not what is expected.
Gabriel and Julia relationship exemplifies the innocence, forgiveness, trust and respect that is true love.
This series is my all-time favorite. An absolute must read.
Nice story build up to sex was disappointing
I read this book hoping all the build up lead to a passionate love story, huge let down. It’s well written, but there is no passion.
Not terrible buuut
I started out liking the book, and was curious on the path the characters would make but as it came to the ending I liked it less and less. The main girl is weak and annoying, and the guy’s character arc just wasn’t believable. Their dialogue morphs into this weird sickly sweetness. Like, seriously, sometimes it was nauseating. Too much.
Was hoping the sex would be fun to read after all the build-up but in the end was a bit disappointed in that, too.
Overall too sappy, too much crying (from both men and women) and just not very believable.
