In short, let's just say that I thought for a good part of the book I might have to give another not-so-stellar review (which I really hate doing).
Personally, as the story progressed on, I thought it was going to be a very Romeo & Juliet ending, and if it hasn't been mentioned quite clearly yet, I did NOT like that book. Oh, a boy mistakes his love for dead, apparently kills himself, and we all know what happens after that. Very ironic if you know what I mean. *gives Shakespeare a very bored look and wonders how to say "I am not very impressed" in Old English* Tis not a story for me.
But I'm not exactly one who gives up a book that easily – unless it's seriously that boring that I find Algebra II much more interesting – and I was probably doing cartwheels – I'm that type of weird girl – when things finally took a turn for the interesting.
I was also hoping by then that Unbound was one of those types in which everything builds slowly and exits very well.
By that I mean it ends surprising, shocking, exciting, cliffhangery – anything that doesn't fall into bad, confusing, out of place, etc.
It had a pretty interesting storyline, so it was worth continuing and giving the author a chance. *shrugs in a "What can I say? I'm that type." way*
It ended surprisingly well.
Not too shabby if you ask me, but it felt like a stand alone.
It’s not just about the instrument. It’s the act of creation. The need to be so fully present and focused, so conscious and yet unconscious.Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Owls
