I've seen the movie based on this book and the sequel. The book was a fast read but well-written. And it leaves off on a cliffhanger, so you might want to make sure you have the next book before starting this one.
I loved this book, was very good throughout, but I was just a little disappointed by the ending. Keeps building up thru the whole book, but then the ending was not as good as I thought it would have been. Im glad I read it.
This was not what I was looking for or expecting after having read a basic summary. First there is a whole romantic aspect that I would not have guessed was there. Secondly this is a four part series which according to others goes down hill but in order to reach a some what satisfying you have to read. Thirdly the ending to this book is definetly a cliff hanger. Fourthly it is definetly a young adult book in terms of writing style (e.i. descriptions, length ect) which as a teen I found not to be enough. It does have a good build up and decent plot line but overall I would not have picked it had I known what I was getting into.
