I have a love hate relationship with this book. I listened to the first few audiobook chapters and then stopped because I was used to strong females when they time travel. Not that I’m saying she is weak, but she is weaker than the one’s I’m accustomed to. At least the first half of the book, she was too weak for my taste. Everything she did revolved around her love. She didn’t think for herself.
A few weeks later, after I finished listening to other books and didn’t have any good book to listen to, I decided to give it another try. With great difficulty I passed the first few chapters. After that it got better and better. I liked the chapters when they were alone after they got away from the killers. After they went back to the palace, there were many times, I wanted to throw the book to the wall (but couldn’t since I was listening on my laptop/phone 😦 ). I was thinking: woman can you not be more egoistic? Take some action! It was so frustrating. I really don’t know what kept me going. That’s the strange thing about this book. Even if it’s frustrating, it’s addicting. If it was any other book, I would have abandoned it long time ago. I just couldn’t with this book. So I continued my journey. It got better after he realized how important she is to him. I loved the book after that so much and cried many times.
So I hated the first part of the book. The male lead was an asshole; the female lead was a too……non egoistic. I didn’t like either of them. After the first part, the male lead began to take action because he realized his love for her. Not that I fell in love with him because he left a too bad impression on me the first half of the book. But he became more likeable and his sacrifice for her was really touching. The female lead also got more likeable. In the first half she was practically doing everything while putting the male lead in the first place. At the second half she finally gave up on him after too many disappointments. When she began to ignore him I was so happy.
I don’t know if I should or shouldn’t recommend this book. It isn’t that good of a book. Although after listening to it once, I listened to again (I must be crazy). It’s not on my top 5, but if you like heart wrenching, I mean really heart wrenching book, this is something for you. I cried about three times because of this book. I must say the epilogue is very nice.
