Book Review of Love, Rosie (aka Where Rainbows End) (aka Rosie Dunne)

Love, Rosie (aka Where Rainbows End) (aka Rosie Dunne)
reviewed Didn't work for me... on + 4 more book reviews

Love, Rosie just didn't deliver for me. The story, presented in letters, Instant Messages, and emails, began to wear on me very quickly. The format stunted the character development and half-way through, when I was struggling to get through each chapter, I realized I didn't care a single lick about either character. Nada. I felt like I had been reading a very long newspaper article that gave the facts...and only the facts. I realized I didn't understand the character's motivations or emotional turmoil...for that matter I didn't understand how they were supposedly the best of childhood friends and thus ill-fated lovers. It was a challenge to read... It felt like someone promised me a quick trip around the block but instead.... I'm still in the car...wondering if we are ever gonna get there already??
