3.0 out of 5 stars Harmony Book Reviews, May 8, 2009
This review is from: Pure (Hardcover)
I can sum up this book in one word - cute. That's really it. Pure is a cute novel, realistic at times, preachy at others, and the characters really didn't offer that much to keep me interested.

At first, I was really intrigued by the idea of the book. Purity rings aren't something I see in my personal future but I respect those who wear them and was looking forward to seeing how broken promises were handled. But a few chapters in, all of the characters except for Tabitha seemed to melt together. A few times I found myself going back a few pages to remember which character was which and who was friends with who.

The one thing I really did like was how Tabitha managed to handle everything that was thrown at her. She did it in a really realistic way and I could see myself handling it similarly.

Other than that... It's not that the book wasn't good, it's just that it didn't connect with me at all. The writing was done nicely but it didn't drag me in. The plot was original but I felt that at some points it was a little preachy. Of course, if you are big into the Bible or don't mind reading about it, that probably wouldn't bother you.

I can't say that I really recommend this one but if you think it looks interesting, then you might want to give it a shot.
