Well I wanted to leave a review for this book. I bought this book to read while on a long road trip. By the way, I love road trips. There are roads everywhere. Did I mention I like roads..why? Because they are black. My favorite color is black. Sometimes I like black with gold....and on and on and on and on!!!!!!
Hopefully you were able to get through my example of what this author constantly did throughout the first twenty pages or so. I wasn't able to get past it and finish the book. I really liked the opening; it was an interesting, novel concept, at least some of the vampire aspects. It all began to crash and burn when she tried to fill in character details by using hundreds of unnecessary details in the most annoying places. It got to a point that I couldn't read one paragraph without being bombarded with details about the characters favorite sun tan lotion or type of throw bag. I understand this is a common way of introducing details about the character, but give me a break. It became so intrusive I just gave up. It could have been a great book, once you got filled in on every single detail of her life, but I never got to it. I thought the goal was to show, not tell.
For example, she mentions her favorite bag that is her favorite bag because of its color and how large it is. She also mentions how long she's had the bag and all the places it's been with her. She does this in an entire paragraph, in a jumble of brain numbing information. Why not just have her carry around the stupid bag? "On all my jobs I carry my old, roomy tote bag; it is perfect for my laptop". Done.
I gave this book a 2/5 instead of 1/5 because if you can actually ignore the random tangents and the fact that the supposed vampire has a copy of twilight on his shelf, it may be a good read.
