My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Never, Never have I been left stumbling and reaching for answers! Never, Never have I wanted to use voodoo dolls on someone more than the CH/TF duo. Never, Never have I loved a story I hated so much.
The Hoover-Fisher team up was exciting in itself. Two very different styles and approaches to story telling, that I can imagine both challenged the other to go outside their comfort zone when cowriting this intriguing, somewhat unique story.
If you like a straight forward story with definitive end, then you will have to wait until the next part(s) come out as there is an epic of all cliffhangers. I never shy away from a cliffy. Which was amazing by the way, even if I threw a tantrum and cursed and swore all kinds of ugly words hoping Hoover and Fisher could here me.
What I thoroughly enjoyed about Never, Never is that I constantly had questions that kept evolving. And by the end still none were answered. I know many will be uncomfortable with such a story but you really should venture out from under your rock and experience such a book. I don’t understand why books must be formulaic or predictable. Never, ever was definitely the antithesis of that.
The writing definitely hooked me and kept me up late reading to find some glimpse into what the heck was happening to these characters.
Now, we all like to analyze and surmise as to what the writers were aiming for in writing a book. Trying to do so with a book where Tarryn Fisher is involved is possibly and more than likely pointless. I tried anyway.
So I’m thinking this is a book about forgetting why we fall in love or rather why we should fall in love. It’s a story about being our own person and not falling into expectations. When we fail at those, we forget. If you’ve read share some of your thoughts. If you haven’t, get on it and then share some of your thoughts.
I will say because there are still so many unanswered questions, the story is incomplete IMO. There weren’t any questions that were answered. In fact more came up the further I delved into the story.
D 4/5 stars for the cliffy, for the writing, for the risk in leaving a story so wide open and vague.
