I started this book with great expectations, and was sadly let down. I found the main characters poor, unrealistic, and I couldn't identify with them. Very rarely do I leave a book unfinished, but with this one I couldn't bring myself to waste any more time muddling through this one.
Yes the main character may be "flippant" in the beginning, but like most christian books you have to give the character time. And as the story unfolds they end up either receiving Christ or growing in their spirituality. I never put a book down after only a few pages. You have to give the author a chance to take you on a journey! That's the fun of reading!!!
Addressing the reviewer who found the main character's attitudes distasteful in the first few pages, she is correct, and that is part of the set-up of the plot. Without spoiling the story for others, I would like to say, however, that the main character is dynamic - that is, she changes and grows spiritually - throughout the story. So you have to read the whole book.
I couldn't read more than a few pages of this book because I didn't like how flippant the main character was. Sure, her boyfriend was boring, but does that excuse her desire to see him struck dead ? How could she joke about planning to murder her mother? Her flippancy towards Almighty God was the last straw. If the author was trying to show distaste toward this kind of carry-on, it didn't come through.
