Buena trama. Malos personajes.

Un cuaderno rojo es abandonado en una librería, dentro están escritos una serie de retos para quien lo encuentre. Así comienza el intercambio de retos entre Dash y Lily. Una historia con mucho potencial, pero que los autores no supieron aprovechar.

Los personajes son... lo peor. Demasiado forzados. Demasiado pretenciosos.

Dash no deja de recordarnos lo "inteligente" que es, lo mucho que lee, la gran cantidad de palabras que sabe, lo superior que es al resto de la raza adolescente. Hasta el punto de dejar de ser interesante para comenzar a ser ABURRIDO. Cada vez que venía un capitulo desde el punto de vista de Dash tenía que forzarme a seguir leyendo.

Y Lily, bueno, una Mary Sue más. Buena hasta el punto de angelical. Infantil hasta el punto de parecer de 3 años mas que de 16. Estoy casi convencida de que Lily tiene algún tipo de retraso mental, NADIE es así es a los 16 años. Y sobretodo, nadie es así a los 16 años, VIVIENDO en Nueva York. Simplemente, no es creíble.

Hay historias que funcionan mejor en películas que en libros, y creo que esta es una de esas. Así que espero la adaptación, que ya fue anunciada. ( )

I LOOOOOOVED this book, I nearly finished it in one sitting. I've never ever read anything like it - and I've read a lot.

Normally I just love the idea of a book, but not the finished product. This time the book was better than i thought. It completely blew my mind.

This book is written by two authors, a male and a female. The male writes the male character and the female writes the female character. I found this method provided a realistic difference between the characters - not only in their thoughts and actions, but in their word choice, sentence structure, and grammar. The story itself is very cute, although I really despise Christmas time stories. I enjoyed reading this. ( )
