Sort of sappy & doesn't really go anywhere. Very repetative!

Not quite what I expected.....starts off magically confusing ( took me over a hundred pages to figure out whether or not two of the characters were the same person, only to find out four hundred pages later I was totally wrong the whole time.). Second part of the book is ok...third part is depressingly sad and confusing again. Ending is blah!!!

Also, this is a very thick paperback book and I found it ackward to read until you got about a quarter of the way in.....just kept worrying the whole front was going to rip off.....same as I got towards the end of the book.

So glad I used a 60% off coupon and free shipping to get this book from Borders.com....lets just say it went NO WHERE really fast. Its a quick read and a nice story if you are just looking for somthing to pass the day. But if you want a book that is going to catch you up in its words and make you want to stay put until its done....pick another book.
Lots of "downers' that just go on and on ....never really getting resolved or climaxing. Most of the story is very predictable. Brief glimpses at the EMT job but definitely not related to his job at all. In fact, a little more EASY research on basic first aid would have made this book more realistic as there were soooo many WRONG moves made by the EMT. Easily noted if you have ever taken a first aid class of any level.
On a whole I found the book to be a sad love-ish story that just never quite gets to the point. Totally worth waiting on the wish list for as opposed to running out and buying it new!

Wow...definitely a keep you guessing until the end book! A little suspense, a little romance, a little drama...and very smart old lady. What more does one good book need?!?!?
I hope to see this book keep traveling thru swaps....it has already been thru the program EIGHT times and is in excellent condition!! Tight pages, clean and no bends or rips!!

A bit sappy.....you almost want the book to end 5 chapters before it does. Not one of this authors better books. :(
