Hidden somewhere in this novel is a good novella. This story starts out strong, but stumbles mid-way, where nothing, nothing, nothing happens for a long time, and never quite regains its feet. I get that the narrator doesn't know what to do and being the exceptionally passive-aggressive type, she does nothing. Unfortunately, having her not progress in any way for pages and pages made the story fall flat for me.
It's a great premise and rich material, but it lacked a bit in execution.
I loved this book, loved it from the beginning and could not put down. An overall dark storyline, but makes you think about your relationships. What are you willing to do for the one you love? I wish I had more books to read like this, would absolutely recommend. Fascinating read.
What a wonderful book. The author just pulls you in deeper and deeper into these people's lives until you're so involved you have to stay up all night and find out how everything turns out.
A young couple, having problems, goes on a picnic and the guy breaks his neck jumping off of a pier. The story is about the aftermath and how the fiancee handles it and how friends and family members react. Very involving. Wonderful.
About a girl who has a big decision to make when her fiance ends up with a traumatic brain injury and all its aftermath. Does she stick by his side and give up what she thinks she wants in life or forget him all together. She goes through a rollercoaster of emotions and actually makes several decisions in the end, kind of coming full circle while growing up a lot in the process. I really enjoyed this book. It's a quick but rewarding read in my opinion.
Story about a woman who is planning to leave her boyfriend and life behind, when her boyfriend is paralyzed in a diving accident. The story is of the woman's dilemma, whether to stay or go.
