Unique and clever,

This review is from: Wasted (Paperback)
This is a clever, clever book.
Fundamentally a tale of boy meets girl it is told in such a unique way, with a voice that manages to weave you into the minds of the characters and then take you outside of them, to see what they cannot see, and may never see.
The story is interwoven with "what ifs?", meaning you have to turn the page to discover the outcome of each decision, and the final twist is brilliantly executed, requiring the reader to actively participate. Having made your decision, and chosen your ending, I would urge you not to go back and read the alternative (if only there were some way of making sure you never could!) - not because one ending is better than the other, but because you are in danger of having it mess with your head!
You cannot help but wonder why this hasn't been done before - and it may be that other stories will be done this way in the future, though it is hard to imagine that they could be done better.

I was quite excited to see a recommended book with five stars, but this review has left me feeling very unsettled and unsure whether I do want to read the book. I think I shall wait a while and look for a few more reviews. So, in a way, it has been helpful but in a negative way..

It has been done before, many, many times.
But it is done well here.
