It was all going swimmingly...
on 27 December 2014
The story was great - you really felt the conflict the characters were going through, and the plot was engaging. I had trouble putting the book down.
But then the author decided to write two alternate endings, both of which go in completely different directions. As soon as I realised what was going on, I felt cheated. I don't want to decide which ending the characters get - that is the author's choice. I felt like she did the characters a disservice by writing two endings.
Also, the number of exclamation marks throughout left me a bit... queasy? But that is just a grammatical preference.
