A slow start
I loved this book but I had to get to the end of it before I realized it. It was really hard to get through the first 600 pages but at the end of the book I knew I would end up buying to next one.
This book was amazing! I could not put it down the whole time. I would recommend it to everybody. The author did a fantastic job of making you feel what the characters were feeling. The word choice was fantastic also it felt like the setting of the book was right down the street and you have known it all your life. Strongly recommend that everybody reads this book!
It starts out a little slow, but then it gets going and is a really good book!
