Love the Idea, Not the Book
Reviewed in the United States on June 16, 2017
I'm no book critique but I was truly disappointed with this one (warning: spoiler alerts below). I really like the idea behind the book. The main character forced on two different life paths based on a seemingly small decision at the time. However, the book was 100% predictable and I found no real connection with the characters. Hannah is a skinny girl, big boobs, eats cinnamon rolls every day and everyone just thinks she's the most amazing person. Everything just falls into her lap, works out for her. Even being hospitalized seems trivial because her male nurse happens to fall in love with her? It's very surface level - and seems like, "of course he would!" - to me. Then the ex comes back into her life and wants to be the father of her baby that's not his? Laughable. The ending was disappointing, as well. She ends up exactly the same in both situations. Almost as if our life decisions don't really matter in the end because we end up in the same place. Didn't prefer the writing style either. Seems like a book for a younger crowd. I would have loved to have seen this grand idea about choosing different lives and where it leads you have a more profound ending to it.
