A slow-building, captivating story

How to explain how I felt about this book... I might need to quote an other book to explain it:
“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.” (It's from The Fault in our stars, if you haven't read it yet, do read it too.)

That is exactly how I felt... about this book. The story felt kind of slow and distant at first, and then as I read listened to the audiobook, I realized that I really loved the depth of this story and the layers in all its characters. Without thinking, I found myself captivated by Aria, Thomas, their relationship, but also by all supporting characters.

The story was really well-built, revealing itself slowly, subtly.

My feelings towards the book might have been emphasized by the narration by Heather Masters. Her voice was soothing, and calm, when the story was full of emotions. And the combination of both was really delighting.

Beautiful and heartbreaking

This was a really beautiful story. I especially loved the first half of the book, when Thomas and Aria were first falling in love and Thomas was helping Aria to see her true potential and worth. The story dealt with both abuse and the pain of losing a loved one, and I completely connected to both Thomas’s and Aria’s stories – my heart ached for these characters. My only complaint was that the middle of the book was dragged out a little bit and there is a love triangle introduced that I could have done without. I think the pain of what happened between Thomas and Aria could have been enough conflict. Still, overall, I loved the story and I give it 4/5 Stars!

The narration: I thought that Heather Masters did a wonderful job with the emotion of this narration. She was a bit slower than some other narrators I’ve listened to, though. (I usually listen to books at 1.5x speed, but this one I usually listened to at 2x!)
