Listener Opinions

    " I liked how you could see what happened from both characters perspectives. I also liked how it showed things that happened in the future (our time - 2012ish) "

    " I liked it. Though it did not deserve that last star in my opinion. I love how it started out quickly.How they had already discovered the Facebook page on like chapter 3.I hate when books go through the character's background stories at the beginning and you have the hardest time starting the book. This wasn't one of those books. I really enjoyed it. I had no hard time getting through the novel. A little drag and repetitiveness in the middle but not too bad. The most predictable ending but I think its still worth the read. Also I wouldn't buy this book this is one of those books you should check out of the library or barrow from a friend. Only buy books if you will read again or if your rich and like to show off a collection of books you like to read :) I am new to this site so if your in to Young Adult books. I will read any genre as long as there is romance(my guilty pleasure). I love action,fantasy,paranormal, and even like Henry the 8th era books.So add me as a friend and I hope you liked my review. "

    " The premise of the book was promising but it wasn't as well executed as I had hoped. I wished I loved either Emma or Josh and I wanted Facebook to impact them in a way that was more than who Emma was going to marry. I wasn't thrilled with the way the whole Facebook conflict was resolved - it didn't help to convince me that Emma had changed. I didn't even like the love plot between Emma and Josh :( "
