Lies upon lies. True love. The truth.
So, this is that one book everyone is talking about, and everyone says that it’s best to go into this story not knowing much about the actual story. This is completely true. Be forewarned, this will be the shortest review in the history of my blog. It’s a great read. Read it. That’s all you need to know.
This section has kind-of already been addressed above. But OK. I’ll give you a little more. I went into this book not knowing anything except there’s a bit of a twist, the book is reasonably short, and I’d yet to see a bad review. Considering I knew all of this, I had reasonably high expectations, and yet the hype monster didn’t get me at all, which I was super afraid of.
I was confused, emotional, confused, enthralled, confused, and then very not confused and very much in love with this book. As soon as I finished it I wanted to reread it, for clarification if nothing else. This was the Inception of novels. Do it, it’s worth it.
That will be all.
