I didn't think the book was bad but it definitely wasn't great. It won't be on my list of books to read again and I probably wont give the story much thought after this review. The twists and turns may appeal to many readers but for me, it was 1 or 2 too many.
Every character in this book might pop off the page and show up at the Internet Cafe at any moment. Even the secondary characters and fake Kate's eight dates. Every guy from every date seems completely real, from their Other Halves profile pages to their ultimate escape from Kate - each is unique, quirky, and has an agenda of his own.
Any book that keeps me up reading long after I should be in dreamland earns a 5-star review. I'd read to 91% of this novel on my Kindle by one in the morning, and there was no way I could go to sleep without finishing it.
The novel climax was a shock. I SO didn't see it coming that I had to page back and re-read it again. It was one of those, oh my god moments - when every possible scenario I'd come up with was absolutely, completely dead wrong.
The story resolution was a little bit "happily weird for now," - but hey, this is Kate we're talking about, so why not?
Don't miss this one!
So why only four stars instead of five? Well, technically I'd give this book 4.5 stars if I could. I loved, loved, loved it--right up until the last chapter, especially the last few paragraphs. I don't want to spoil the plot, so I won't go into details. I will say that I was confused by the ending--it seemed that a prior scene or two between the three characters who are in the very final scene was missing. I even re-read the last 15% of the book just to make sure I hadn't missed something. I simply could not figure out how to interpret the last chapter, especially those final paragraphs, because the main characters in that chapter seem too tentative and unsure (with regard to how they relate to Belinda) to support the tone of the final paragraphs. I finished the book feeling unbalanced. Were they truly that reconciled and at ease with each other? It didn't seem so, which made the very ending feel forced and unnatural--at least to me.
That said, I would still highly recommend this book. The rest of it is just about pin-perfect.
a. It is full of Britishisms that, while contributing to setting, may be difficult for America readers to understand.
b. It starts out moderately paced, then slows, nearly crawls, and SUDDENLY EXPLODES WITH ACTION! at the very end. I literally felt dizzy from trying to keep up with the implications of what I was reading. If you were looking for easy reading chick lit, this book throws you a curve ball at the climax.
Without going into too much detail, this story is engaging, fun, flirty, and a good read. Sisters will likely find themselves identifying with Kate and Belinda`s relationship filled with protectiveness, comraderie, annoyances, and unconditional love.
And, thanks to this book I now have a headache - the curse of reading too late into the night under the poor artificial lighting in the bedroom. I guess even upsizing the kindle's print couldn't remedy that... And an entire morning wasted as I had to finish it! Thanks Wailing, you kept me entertained ^^
