2.0 out of 5 stars
Big disappointment, 27 Mar. 2012
After reading the reviews for this book, I was very excited to start a great new book that takes place in one of my favorite places, Oxford. Was I ever so let down!
The book is unnecessarily long and drawn out- every few pages it seems we get to go through the daily struggle of the main character getting dressed, told time and time again how she drinks her tea (and every cup she has, no less), and the way the vampire smells and feels everytime their skin touches, as well as when he tucks her hair back.
There are some cool parts in the book, but they need to be brought closer together. By the I got to them, I felt the amount of time used getting through the rest could not be made up for.
Overall, it's long, and not in the good way when you don't want a book to end. I just wanted it to hurry up, and found myself skipping whole pages to get to something that looked interesting. It would be much better if any of the characters were likeable and had any chemistry/connection that felt real.
