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.
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!
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 ^^
This is the most bizarre book I've ever read. It started off as a Chick-lit with me really relating to and liking Belinda for who she was; and appreciating how different she was from her spontaneous, carefree older sister. However, the storyline grew convoluted; in the first few chapters, I was confused about the timeline because the book jumped from one time-period to another: the beginning chapter when Kate went missing and then the next chapter skipped back to the time when Belinda and Kate were together at the wedding.
On a positive note, I have to admit, the book was certainly a page turner and kept me in suspense wondering what had happened to Kate, but the more I read, the weirder I found the book. Belinda started changing from a likable girl to someone amoral without a conscience; and I kept flipping the pages to come up with clues to where Kate had gone. By the time I found out that Belinda had a condition which made her act the way she did, I had formed distaste for her and the story line.
I felt the conclusion of the book was totally misplaced and inappropriate. If Belinda had a condition that kept her mind away from reality, why was her sister Kate, enabling her? And hadn't Ben suffered enough? By the end of the book, all I could do was pity for him trying to be so understanding with both sisters. For me it's a love-hate relationship with the book, and I find it difficult to rate it, so I'll end up giving it 3 stars because I found the book to be really strange!
