Well, I am far, far, too warm and fuzzy from a personal achievement in photography and a number of beers to write a super epic review. Either that or this will be a most epic review. I loved the idea of this book. The concept, I felt, was brilliant. A famous artist dies, and even though she has lived a full and successful life, she feels as though her masterpiece is incomplete. Anyone that knows artists knows that when it comes to their work they are utter perfectionists. So, it is completely pl [...]
The story is a good story, but its execution was a little unrealistic. Some of the dialogue was unbelievable, for instance the seance, some of the dialoge with the Indians were stereotyped. The idea that a deceased painter could be so bent on finishing her masterpeice that she would go so far as to possess another painter in order to do it is a good concept. Another area that I felt was a bit unrealistic was Angelina's thoughts. She thought too linearly and too formally. When I'm thinking I don' [...]
I won this book in a giveaway. I entered because the premise of this book sounded really interesting, a painter dies before she can finish her masterpiece and tries to use someone else to finish it for her. However, I was a little disappointed, the descriptions of the artwork were great but the rest was kind of iffy for me. I don't know if it was because there were so many characters that maybe it should've been longer to develop them and their relationships better or if some characters could'v [...]
The plot for this book was very interesting, something new and different from all the 'Teen Paranormal Romances' floating around right now.I realize now, after finishing the book that Adelaide's strong determination to get her 'masterpiece' done was beneficial to the story. But I found it a little off-putting in the beginning and it made it a little harder for me to connect with that character.I did connect with Angelina's character, and would have liked to see more about her life after this ins [...]
Just finished the book which I found intriguing and compelling to read to the end of each chapter and desiring to jump into the next chapter. This was not my usual subject matter for reading, but I found it grabbing my interest and attention completely so that I finished it in a couple days despite other activities distracting me.Definitely recommend.
I'm glad I waited to review this book. I enjoyed the premise, and the idea of heaven! I liked the character development but at some point it seemed a little cheesy. What made that okay, was the book event pointed out itself that it seemed cheesy. Overall the book grew on me more than I realized and there are people I will be recommending it to. It blends artistry well with story telling.
I finished reading this book quite a while ago, and had a hard time making up my mind how I liked it. It is one of those books that is "almost good", and I would give it a 3.5 if I could. It has possibilities and the plot is interesting. However, there are several unresolved issues, and inconsistencies in both the story line and character portrayals. It has an unfinished feel to it.
