Excellent book

I loved this book. What struck it about me right away was how the chapters were laid out and explained in the Table of Contents. That reminded me of the style of really old books and made me even more interested in the story. I found the story easy-to-read and...

Amazing book!

This book was simply amazing. I picked it up because I loved "Before I fall" and once I did, I couldn't put it down. Her writing style is so easy to read and absorbing that you simply forget everything, except the story in front of you. I completely identified with...

I just couldn't get into it...

I just couldn't get into this book. I guess I'm really just hit or miss with Jennifer Echols' books. The book was too predictable from the beginning for me to be interested in it.

Not my type of book

I just couldn't get into this book even thought I found the story concept to be very intriguing. I didn't like the writing style and found the characters too difficult to like.

I tried to like this book...really

I tried to like this book. Even after hating the movie, I tried to give this book a chance. However, none of the characters, with the mild exception of Lindy, were even remotely good people. Kyle/Adrian just got worse as the book wore on. By 2/3 of the way through,...

Loved it!

I loved this book. It took me a while to get into it, but its one of those books that you just have to know what happens. I'm not sure I liked the ending, but I see why it had to happen that way. Definitely a great read. It will...

Cute book!

I loved this book. I didn't think I would. I thought I would like it, but I didn't think I would love it. It is such a brilliant twist on an old story. The only part I didn't really like was the end because it felt kinda rushed, but the...

Not my type of book

I just couldn't get into this book. The characters didn't appeal to me and I found the story to be too slow to be interesting.

Ok book

This book was ok. The story was pretty interesting, but I found it to be really slow. Once you get past that though, the book is pretty good. Definitely not a quick read.

Very interesting book

I thought that I would hate this book and dreaded reading it, especially because it was a graphic novel, but I ended up loving it. It is a simple story that perfectly illustrates the problems faced by inner city youth in today's society. I think this would be a great...

Terrible book

This book was terrible. The writing style was ok, but it was entirely too slow and I hated all of the characters, especially the main characters. I gave it 80 pages and then flipped to the end of the book to find out the ending (which I had mostly predicted)....

Not my type of book

I did not find this book realistic. The characters were flat and stereotypical and the writing style was boring. I gave it 50+ pages and then gave up. Definitely not my type of book.

Cute book

It was a cute book. It seemed longer than it should have been, but I enjoyed the story and didn't predict the twist at the end, which made me happy. It might be a better book for tweens or early young adults than for adults.

Wonderful book

Not my favorite Narnia book, but still important to the series. This book allows you to understand how the rest of the world outside of Narnia lives. For that reason alone, I will love it forever. Great as an audiobook or just to read.

Love this book!

How can you not love The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe? This book is just tremendous. I listened to it on audiobook recently and fell in love with it all over again. This is one of those books that you could read or listen to once a year and...
