Did anyone else finish reading Ever?
I was expecting to like it, since I love Ella Enchanted... and I didn't. I didn't like it. In fact, I was disappointed. I thought the characters weren't very well developed, so I found that I didn't really care that much about them. I know it's a fairy tale, but the whole love-at-first-sight thing felt very thin to me. Some parts were imaginative, but other parts I felt were just weird (the whole underworld people that turn into birds or whatever? Weird...) I know all books can't end happily ever after, but I hated the ending, how she was "sacrificed" anyways, then whisked away to live "happily-ever-after" leaving her family in mourning. I didn't like their blind devotion to Admat (or whatever his name was, sorry I don't have the book in front of me) or how she kept trying to find him, even after she became a goddess herself.
I don't know, maybe I was too harsh on the book... but I'm not a fan. Anyone else have any thoughts? Feel free to disagree with me :)
