Sweet Oblivion is a fast pace reading. The plot alternates between Nari and Naminé. At times it is confusing, but eventually it will makes sense.
I wanted to love the characters but I could at best like them because they annoyed me. well Nari annoyed me, (Naminé - since we didn't know anything about her I can't say that) - Nari , because her ambivalent self centered feelings - and the kind sense of I am miserable so I am worth it. which lead to frequent tear-fests and back-and-forthness, but I liked the boys in her life - badass hero Mycah Nightly and best friend Rydan. But even Rydan character pissed me of sometimes, maybe because Nari couldn't pull some information out of him and because the like wise non exit trianglelove clues all over the place.
I also had problem with the descriptions like - playing with her chocolate color hair, tears in her purple eyes and such.... ok.... we understand it once there is no need to repeat this every time. It was weird to read that Nari didn't have a social life beside Rydan, but i didn't get this feeling while i was reading the plot itself, it seam that she felt very comfortable in school.
Overall, I liked the idea that it is was presenting and I look forward to what the next book has to offer. I have the feeling that the next can be much better because we don't have to go through all the introductions.
