The Movie. Was Better

At least 200 pages of this book could have been left out..I was disappointed because I expected it to be good like the movie (not necessarily the SAME as the movie, just good if not better than it). There were some details that were different, but that's to be expected and I actually liked those detail differences. But the book was drawn out, a big negative because it can discourage readers from wanting to finish the novel.

As describe however there’s small tear onthe dust jacket and light tanning


The story was intriguing and very interesting. A bit of romance and a cliff hanger leaving you wanting more!

So good!

This book was so much better than I expected it to be & I bought the rest of the series as soon as I finished it. The characters grow so much through the books, you learn more about them, their stories & why the are the way they are. You grow to love each & every one of them & you find yourself rooting for them at every turn.

My teenage daughter loves this book. She packing it everywhere

I haven't read it personally. This is my teenage daughter's new addiction.

Main character and story underdeveloped. Disappointed

Because of some adult subject matters I wouldn't recommend the book for people under 14, who exactly is the audience then? The book didn't keep my interest and I was just trying to get through it because of the movie coming out. I was disappointed by the main character, she didn't seem to have much strength and just went though her timeline being pushed about. The supporting characters had some personality. The premise was interesting and it was disappointing to never see it fully realized. The book did have some moments of good suspense.
