User Review  - Monet - Goodreads

My first thought is that this book, with such flagrant imagery to the surrounding world, houses no evil in the first letters preceding the story. I would of never have guessed the ending and I felt ... Read full review

Not going to lie, I found this boom really hard to get into and it may have been due to the fact that I had no prior knowledge about the story at all. I thought that the book was going to be about the ... Read full review

User Review  - Amy Nielsen (is going cerebral for 2014) - Goodreads

This is truly a book that bookworms should read. Truly. It's not a hard or tedious read. And although it's somewhat similar to the movie that came out in like the early 2000's or was it the later 1990 ... Read full review
