SPOILERALERT (if you want to call it like that) â¦ THIS is NO STANDALONE â¦
I know I know â I am starting again with what annoys me most. I really dislike the fact when I stumble into a novel not knowing if it will be part of a series or not.
Do not misunderstand me â I know that some stories require more than one book to be told but as in all things life there is a time for everything and sometimes a reader just needs to have a story being told when he is turning the last page of the current book.
Wellâ¦ that is â¦ IF there will be a next bookâ¦ after finishing the book I wondered so I checked what other readers think on that point and they all commented on looking forward to the next bookâ¦ but will there be one â¦ Or will we be left with what we know so far ?
Because again do not misunderstand â¦ THERE IS AN ending â¦ it just seems that me as well as the other readers I saw so far EXPECT there to be something âelseââ¦
But I am afraid you will have to read the book to find out what I mean.
Other than this complain (if you want to call it like that) there is really nothing even remotely negative to be said about this book.
The readers will find an intriguing and well-developed plot. In the beginning I struggled a little with the love story within the plot as it seemed to be more the mystery of the loner than the person itself that was interesting to Allie.
But as the story continued those issues dissolved for me .
This book will draw the reader into its story and I am positive it will leave all other readers in the same position as the ones that already read the book. Expecting the next oneâ¦.
