I'd be lying if I said I said I didn't skim a little.
It had nothing to do with seeing the tv series first because I didn't. not until after I read the first book did I watch the first season. And I was seriously on the fence. It felt like there was long, drawn out dram for no apparent reason. There were so many characters, and of course the author did a good job describing them, but oh my goodness it was overwhelming. Instead of switching minds, i'd have liked to know a little bit of the plot.
It took the whole book to figure anything out, and even then there was little satisfaction
That being said, this was Pretty Little Liars. Sara Shepard draws you in in a way that makes you want to keep reading. The books progress and everything unfolds.
If you're looking for quick answers, you won't find it here.
If you're looking for a soap opera, this is your book.
Anyone who is "on the wall" about starting to read the series or not needs to just give in and read it!
Being the first book it did not have as much action as the rest will, but that is of course because the first book is letting everyone get all the information needed to make sense of everything.
Starting the second book now! Very excited!!

Misc.: There are some triggers in this book; eating disorder, self harm.
First thing caught my eye was the rating and then a I read the description. I was so excited to get this book and read it, it was something so new from what I normaly read. I ate this book up in 2 sittings. It's a classic who-did-it type of story that keeps you turning page after page until you get to the end just to find you, you still don't know who killed Ali or is Ali really dead.
I had to tell everyone about this book and how good it was, the next night, I bought the 2nd book. I've now started 4th book in the series, I've bought Season one of the TV show and my husband and myself are hooked. We can't wait until Season 2 is available to buy, and I'll be getting the next book, and the next book, and the next. This writer is really good, don't think this is just some cheesy gossipy girl highschool drama teen book. Oh no! This is excellent for anyone looking for a page turning mystery that keeps you hooked.
I'm eager to try the Lying Game by this same author and am hoping for the same kind of power this series has over me.
