I really liked the main character of this book, Talia. She was a tough chick and perfectly kick-ass. I also thought the plot was great and was sucked into the book from the beginning, making it very hard to put the book down.
I'd have given this book 5 stars and said it was a perfect adventure story if it wasn't for the need of a seriously good proof read. The amount of missing words in sentences and odd places where words like 'that' and 'it's' appeared where they shouldn't be often making a sentence entirely nonsensical was a great put off. On top of that there would often be words with the wrong tense ending or an s missed off for a plural, coupled with my pet peeve the s's at the end of a possesive name that normally ends in s when it should have been s' at the end instead.
Unfortunately it meant I just couldn't get fully absorbed into the story.
Really couldn't put this book down. I even stayed up late to finish reading it.
Totally loved the plot idea and how it all unraveled. It was fun to work out what parts of the dreams were real and results of the outside influences. The whole popcorn theme was funny too!
I went looking for the sequel as soon as I'd finished this book but it's not out yet so I'm going to have to wait. I will definitely be picking it up as soon as it's out.
I was actually surprised I liked this book. I'm not a huge fan of romance but this was pretty well done and I found I liked the characters enough to cheer on their relationship as well as sympathised and felt the pain of the main character when things went wrong.
The plot wasn't the most original but it was still good and nicely told and I actually found myself missing the characters when I finished the book.
The only slight drawback was the believability of the mystery side of things. I found a few of the things the main characters did a little far fetched and thought them braver than they would have been facing things like that but it didn't detract too much.
