In the beginning of the book (and I like this because in many books that treat life after waking up from a coma the darkness and the hopelessness and everything is described on twenty-or-so pages and it's just boring) Jenna Fox wakes up from a coma. She does not remember anything about her former life but her parents tell her that she was hurt in anaccident and slit into a coma and that it was a miracle that she did survive. Jenna is recovering quickly and soon she comes to the conclusion that her parents are hiding something from her.
There are a lot of unpredictable turns in this book that make it ... well, different from any other book I've read yet. Of course, I predicted them all after reading ten pages, but that's because I am extraordinarily smart. I imagine a person with an average intelligence would be like (on page 174) "Oh, that's why her mom reacted like this on page 15. Now I get it. I would never have guessed that." What I am saying, the foreshadowing is done pretty well.
What I didn't like about this book was the cover. Whenever I put it down (to get food), and I am one of these terrible people that just leave books open and lay them down upside down so that their spines break, I felt like it was staring at me.
Also, we should talk about the genre. I would say it is science fiction, but it's also at some point a thriller and it's a love story. Let's say it's about 40% science fiction (I'm not sure wether it is a dystopian novel or not), 40% thriller (but there's not exactly a crime) and 20% love story (which has close to nothing to do with the plot). Especially the science-fiction part makes you feel somehow uncomfortable reading it, knowing that it might transform itself to reality quite soon. Which does not mean that you shouldn't read it. You definitely should.
Just two young ladies who need to spread their love for books.
