I am finished. And I don't know where to begin. This may sting a little...but I think you can handle it.
This was a good book. A good, solid book. What bugs me is that it had the potential to be a phenomenal book...but too many details were left out...so it's just a good book.
Why only a page?! This could have gone on for a chapter. He could have talked to her. No - he could have murmured to her. He could have told her his fears while she was sleeping. He could have told her that he thought he'd be alone the rest of his life and that her coming to Paradise was a miracle...and that he couldn't lose her now. We could have seen Too Many Doves and Falling Trees all worrit about him for days on end. He could have gotten up only to use the privy and sported red, swollen eyes...which would have made the ladies even more worrit...and would have made us swoon. But no. Instead, we got one page of him losing water from his eyes...being calmed by her smells and falling asleep. That's it. Hell-O??? It's big PICTURE time! McFly?!?
This is NOT an insult to Sarah Donati's writing. If anything, it's a compliment. I liked her style...I just wanted more.
Crossing my fingers, y'all. I'm told Book 2 is slowwww...and Book 3 has barely any McLovin'...but Book 4 has crazy amounts of McLovin'...so I may have to persevere.
I am definitely into the characters and the world of the Bonners now...so hopefully I'm in for the long haul.
More to come...
