So, I first decided to read this book because I had read a quote on a friend's facebook status, and really liked how the words were phrased.
It didn't disappoint me at all. It starts a little "boring", making you believe it is incomplete and you're arriving to a story that has already started and you just feel out of place, as if fitting and reading it is something you shouldn't be doing. Then, before you actually notice it, it grasps you and throws you into Lori's mind. You feel as sad as she does, you question yourself when she does, and sometimes you want to cry out the answers or your own plea!
