In bed with two good companions... something to read and some hot tea!
This should have been so good. Really nice idea, which kept you intrigued for the first half of the book. Then, it's almost as though the author herself couldn't quite decide where to go with it. It turns into a frustrating story where everything turns out smelling of roses. Everyone falls in love with everyone else. Everyone gets what they want, it's all just a bit too perfect. Shame, it's a beautifully presented book, but without the substance.
You had heard of a caterpillar that couldn't turn into a butterfly. And you would like to examine how it would feel to be denied such a beautiful thing. You would like to know how it feels for the caterpillar to watch other caterpillars transform while all the time knowing he would never have that opportunity.
Cecelia Ahern, One Hundred Names
I‘d somehow never heard of this series and picked this up from an op shop. I wasn‘t expecting much as I did a horrible thing and judged the book by the cover, but I was so pleasantly surprised. It‘s a really good book, and the plot thickens and turns right until the end!
