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. ( )

CC and overdrive.

I *loved* this book .. it wasn't *deep* nor was it overflowing with angst 'n' pathos . . it was simply a sweet, "awww-ish" and entertaining read that left me wanting to go back in time in order to duplicate several key plot aspects - simply to see what might have developed! Recommended. ( )

I really liked the way that this book was written with the two different authors taking on the role of each of their characters. Yet somehow I was still expecting more. I don't know what thou. I just finished the book and was left felling a little empty and let down. Maybe it was just the ending or that we never get to see what happens to Dash and Lily's relationship. I really don't know.

It was still an enjoyable read and different from what I have currently been reading. A change is always good. ( )
