400 pages in, you realize - you're hooked. And not just because you've been forcing yourself to keep reading. But because the book has finally managed to suck you in. You find that you love the characters. You're anxious to find out what happens to them. How their lives change. Will he ever make up with his brother? Will he ever forgive the girl who destroyed his heart? Will he ever see his father again? These questions nag at your heart, begging you to come back to the book. Once finished, you find out it has changed you.
Or do I just sound like a crazy person? Well, anyway, I just finished that book. 2 hours ago.
If you're a patient reader (which I am often not), give this book a shot. And if you do read it, or have read it, how did it go for you?
