This review is from: The Girl in Times Square (Paperback)
Having previously read some of Paullina Simon's other books, I thought hey why not buy this one too? It seems like a love story - yer well so what if I'm a little soppy. I might as well get it. I am so glad I bought this book.
I've JUST finished reading it this second and I have to write a review. There's no point writing a synopsis as I'm sure there are plenty and all accurate.
This is a long book, no doubt. It starts off all: "Ooo this seems interesting" and ends: "Omigod". Really, it took me a while to read, as I've been busy, but I kept going. You can really empathise with the characters and understand each of them. I mean the main characters, Spencer and Lily, are just..well words cannot describe how you learn to feel for them (that's really helpful, ok ok)
This book has so many themes and addresses issues in this book that people should know about. I would say which themes, but people may want to find out what they think the themes are, and not what I think they are
Throughout the book you think, "Jesus, where is Amy?!!?" You get towards thre end and everything starts getting very tense and exciting, and it's all drawn together so well. You may think the book's then rubbish as it's all at the end, but the end just complements the rest of the book so well. I mean, when I finished the book I let out a huge sigh.
Ok this isn't a fantastic review but there is no point babbling on about how wonderful the characters are, or how thought-provoking this is (it really is actually, honest), or how the book does affect you..Just buy it. You won't regret it, it's an astounding book that doesn't skim the edges like some books. It's amazing. Another great book from an author who deserves much more recognition.
