I read this book in a couple of days. It wasn't the most exciting book I've ever read, but I still enjoyed it. Although the main character went a little farther than what is probably bound to happen in a real life situation, I think it is a fairly believable idea for someone to be curious about the person their significant other is possibly cheating on them with. I suppose for some people the book could be a bit dry, but for me, I was pulled into the story fairly quickly and couldn't seem to want to stop reading until the end.
I tried to read this more than once. I'm not sure if it was the writing style or the story line, but it just didn't grab me like I was hoping. I had to put it down. I did read the sequel to this one though which I enjoyed, but this one just didn't do it for me.
In my opinion, these were not the best story lines to follow. All three stories somewhat tie together, but I got a bit bored with them and almost quit reading. Although I finished the book, I would just rate the book as okay.
This book started out with so much potential. A plane crash killing everyone on board except one tiny baby seemed very intriguing to me in the beginning. Unfortunately, it lost me somewhere along the way. I think there were just too many twists and turns that it started becoming unbelievable, and even the idea that a baby would have survived such a bad plane crash was a bit of a stretch.
The journal entries from the private investigator were getting almost more annoying than anything else. I was getting very impatient with the writings in it so I began skimming a lot of parts just to get through the book faster. I think that maybe I got confused a little by skimming it because I realized I didn't know who some of the characters were. Maybe if the book had been a little shorter, I might have enjoyed it more but it felt like it dragged on for too long. I kept reading though, hoping it would tie together in the end. While the ending made sense, it came together almost too perfectly. Real life situations rarely work out that way.
If you can read it without considering how unrealistic the story actually is, then you might enjoy it more than I did.
Cute story line but a bit unbelievable. In general I do think something similar happens to a lot of people who get married, but specific things in the book are a little out there. Most people aren't related to or work with famous people so the characters of this book are a little unbelievable, but in general the "average" married couple could easily fall victim to what happens in this book. I would give it 4 stars out of 5.
I typically look forward to reading Jennifer Weiner's books, but the last couple I have tried to read by her have not grabbed me. This book was over 350 pages long. I made it to page 35 but it was so boring I quit reading. I had to force myself just to read that far. To say I was disappointed is an understatement.
I really wanted to enjoy this trilogy, but after a few chapters, I got bored and quit reading. I had high hopes after reading positive reviews of the books, but I guess I just didn't find the humor that others did. I felt the writing was bland and lacked the depth that I like. Maybe others will enjoy but I don't regret not finishing this one.
Although I liked the book, it was hard for me to relate to the author's struggles. However, I do commend her for her efforts. I would recommend the book for anyone who is struggling with weight loss. It can be inspiring.
I am sided on how I feel about this book. Part of me liked it while another part of me was a bit disappointed. I didn't like the ending which I found to be very abrupt. There were a few places in the book that I found humorous, but the overall story line was a little boring to follow. I don't really care for racing, so maybe that was my problem with this book. There were many mentions of races and explanations of racing, so I just had to skim over those pages. The racing aspect does blend in with the story line, but maybe that was my overall issue with the book. Perhaps if I was a race car fan, I would have liked it more. I give it 3.5 stars, but that is almost being generous. However, I'm glad I read it & it was a quick read.
I loved this book! I read it in a couple of days, which I could have probably finished it in one day if I'd had time. I think my only complaint is that the ending seemed a bit abrupt and I feel like a sequel needs to be written now. I would say it's a little unbelievable in some ways, but I still enjoyed it.
I attempted to read this book 3 times. While I'm glad I finally finished it, I never felt completely enamored with it. Obviously the subject matter was rather depressing, but the author's wording made the book tough to force myself through & I found myself just wanting it to be over.
I have been struggling with whether to give this book one or two stars. I'll settle for 1.5. On one hand, the idea of the book was great. A very contagious virus has been wiping out part of the population. This could very well be a true story. Therefore, the book instantly pulled me in at first. However, it didn't take long for the story to start dragging and just never seemed to go anywhere. I kept reading, hoping for some sort of action. I found myself getting bored and I almost stopped reading a number of times. I did finish it, but I still feel like it could have offered more. I also felt like a lot of the dialog didn't seem real. I felt like the author tried desperately to pull together a possible solution to dealing with such a scary epidemic, but in my opinion it failed miserably.
If you're looking for something a bit evil, dark, and sadistic, this may be the one for you. In my opinion, some of the abuse in the book was a little uncalled for, but it does add to the story line. One of my main issues is that it was quite predictable in places. I read it within a couple of days so it's a pretty fast read. Just be warned that some of the abuse may be a little more than you bargained for if you don't like those types of books.
This book initially drew me in but quickly caused me to lose interest. While I cannot say that I definitely know how this book ends, I have a fairly good idea that I figured it out early on. After having read many other reviews of this book, I have come to the conclusion that it probably ends the way I think. While this alone was not the reason I quit reading, it does keep me from ever wanting to finish the book. What caused me to lose interest was how dry the story line was. I know many people are huge Nicholas Sparks fans, but I am not one of them. I think his books are rather amateurish at best. This one was definitely not worth my time.
Most of these stories didn't interest me much. I felt like a few of them just wasted my time reading & I didn't even finish one of the stories at all. Maybe the story lines would intrigue someone else, but for me I would give this book only 2 stars & that's being a little generous.
