This is a tough one for me since I do finish most books I've read. I would finish slightly less if teachers wouldn't have forced me to read certain books that I didn't like.
I had to read this in freshmen year of high school. We stopped but what we did read (we read aloud) destroyed my sanity. How much I did not care about this book was incredible. The book might have been better if we read it on our own or maybe if I wanted to actually read it I would have tried to get past the flaws but I really don't know. I don't plan on reading this book again anytime soon even if it's a classic beloved by all. Beloved by all minus one.
I don't know if it was because I was sick or not (feverish, stomach killing me) but this book dragged on way too much which is too bad because this is one of the rare books that I bought. The cover is so inviting and the plot sounds so amazing but the places the Somerset Sisters go to... it's just too much. I will try this again probably next year because I did buy it so I might as well read it.
This is the first ever zombie book I attempted to read and boy did it give me a bad taste for zombie books. The beginning has such a slow buildup. It was like pulling teeth. Maybe I should have started with a YA zombie book because this book really made me not want to read any more books about zombies. Only now is when I really want to read one because of Alice in Zombieland which will hopefully change my view point especially since I should read zombie books because I love The Walking Dead so much.
I remember reading some pages of this book before. I don't know if I wasn't in the mood for it but it felt to me the book wasn't going to be any good. I also kind of feel like I finished it but don't remember which I highly doubt happened. If I did read it I must have not liked the book anyways. I remember not liking the main character on the cover. I don't know. My memory is foggy. I might have to give it another chance because of that.
I was really excited to read this book and it was doing well for me for a while until I found out the author had a nice amount of money. I know we can all improve but it just didn't sit right with me. I'll have to give it another chance because a) I bought it and b) I am getting over the fact that she has a lot of money. It doesn't seem right to me to base the book on whether or not the author is rich or not. It's her point of view and maybe she could give me a few pointers after all.
