yes, I am sure you've seen many reviews on this trilogy. but I'm throwing my pennies into the mix.
pros - it was really well written. the characters were well developed and it was easy to relate to most of them. most of the time it was a real page turner and hard to put down.
cons - the ending was really a let down. in my humble opinion it was as if they were just tired of writing the books and quickly ended it with a minimum of fuss and resolution. yes, the two that I was pulling for did end up together but it was just so sudden an end.
would I recommend the books? sure. they were a good read. I had all three done in less than two weeks. I can generally read a book in less than two days but things have been nuts here with spring cleaning and a sickness that is moving in cycles through the house. I did enjoy the books and may one day read them again. I'm not convinced I will see the movies for them though. I am often very let down when books go big screen.
so there are my pennies. one of them is shiny and the other a little tarnished but they're mine and I am tossing them in the barrel!
I started reading Stealing Jenny last night... I'll let ya know what happens. as in if I finish it or it goes to unfinished bookland like Mayhem did (I started it but stopped probably 1/3 of the way through due to being irked that none of it made sense to me).
