review 1: My husband won this book in the first reads giveaway. This was a really good book and I was hardly able to put it down. I wish there had been more about Hannah, but by the time I got toward the end of the book, I thought I understood why her part in the book was so short. I was thinking about how bad I felt for Hannah's crappy life when it dawned on me that her short part in the book really helped to signify how her life was mercilessly cut short even before she took her own life. If you are easily offended, this might not be the best choice for you, and it is definitely not appropriate for teens. I can't wait for the sequel, which is scheduled for publication in the Spring of 2010.
review 2: Another win from goodreads! i really wanted to like this book...i jus
... moret didn't. i felt that Hannah's whole story was rushed and much of what was going on in her life was never fully explained. it seemed that the entire struggle of her marriage came without any explanation. actually, the entire book seemed rushed. like the author had too many stories to tell and tried squeezing them into one novel that never fully explored any single storyline. i didn't find any of the characters very likeable...and was completely thrown off by the entire story of Vita's marriage. honestly, i felt like this book was a series of story setups that never delivered...just kept jumping around. less
