J'ai vraiment apprécié ce livre pendant l'enfance du personnage principal ... et dès qu'il ... ou elle ... est devenu adulte, je l'ai soudainement trouvé complètement ennuyeux. J'ai dû le déposer! Donc, vraiment, si je le pouvais, je donnerais à la première moitié environ 4 étoiles et à la deuxième partie aucune. C'est juste mon expérience.
Great sing song quality that draws young children in.
OK, so this book got pretty bad reviews on this site....like "I gave it one star because there was no 0 star rating"...I think that's pretty harsh. I actually liked the book. The cover is gorgeous! The descriptions are lush and detailed so you can really visualize the settings in your mind. Some parts were slow-moving and throughout most of the book it felt like I just kept waiting for something BIG to happen so the anti-climatic ending was a little disappointing. BUT the love story was SO sweet and it was so easy to fall in love with the characters. Some people commented on how weak and dependent Bethany was....well, again I say, you ARE reading YA Fiction, so it is what it is. IF you are looking for a super strong, powerful, female character this is NOT the book for you. It IS, however, the only 'angel' book that I've read that references God, and it is pretty prominent, which I liked. I mean, they are angels, right? Overall, not the best angel book I've read, but I'm impressed that it was written by an author who was only 17. I enjoyed the story overall and will probably read the second book when it comes out just out of curiosity. P.S. I'm a really bad reviewer!! :)
