LIFE AFTER LIFE

Genre:  Fiction, Standalone
Published:  2013
Personal Rating:  DNF #3

Oh goodness.  I pre-ordered this book because of all the hype, not knowing anything about it.  Big mistake.  I was extremely bored from the beginning and hate repetition.  Bad combo.  I was absolutely devastated that I was not enjoying this "brilliant" work, but it was 50 pages and out for me.

    1. Staci ~ I had my friend buy it for her Nook (same sale). However, you like a wider range of genres and will probably love, love, love it -- just like the rest of the reading population.

    1. Les ~ I'm glad I let it go, but I was so looking forward to getting devoured by it. I'm not sure you should let this one go without giving it a go yourself. However, if you haven't been thrilled with her writing up to this point . . .

  4. A friend sent me this book a few weeks ago so I'll have to give it a shot. That fact that you only made it 50 pages worries me.
