Review: I heard a lot of good things about this book when it first came out so I was interested to read it. I liked the premise of the story and the way it played out. This was a pretty short book and I read it in a day. Unfortunately, I couldn't connect emotionally with the characters and story. Since this book was full of emotion that was a problem for me.
I couldn't really relate to Colt as a character. I have read a lot of books dealing with death as a main subject and in this one I wasn't really able to sympathize with Colt about Julia's death. I also didn't like the fact that their entire relationship was an affair. I think the story would have been a lot sweeter if Austin wasn't in the picture. I have to say my favorite character was probably Tom. I mean Colt has to be able to talk to someone and his parents weren't exactly reliable. Honestly I could sympathize with Tom's problmes a little more than Colt's
So, all in all, not one of my favorite books but I definitely enjoyed it and I want to see what Hubbard will write next.
