I enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end. Now I find out that there are more books in the series! I think I may need to add them to my Kindle list.
This was a very well written, well thought out book. I could connect with the characters - from the main characters to the least. Each one had their place in the bringing together of this story. I liked the journey I was taken on and the way in which all my questions were tidied up in the ending.
What I did find though, was that some parts were predicable. Some may hate this, but I actually enjoyed it. Without a little predicatablity I think I would have found less connection with Jem and Spider. The predicability made them human. Having said that, there was still plenty that kept me the edge of my seat as I read... including what I predicted, as I had to read to see if I was on the right track.
I want to write about many parts of this book but as I do so I find myself deleting all that I type as it keeps containing 'spoilers'. It is difficult to tell you what I found the best as it will ruin the story for you. What I suggest is that you give reading it a try. It isn't a hard read, but be warned there is a little bit of language that some may find offensive. I noticed tonight, that this was available through my library's Bolinda Borrow Box, so I quickly snapped it up and listened to some of it on my phone. The character's voices and accents are perfect for the story and what I envisioned of the characters.
So overall, this is a good book. Great concept for a plot. Great characters and connection between each scene. It flowed with just enough predicability which kept it real.
Since her mother's death, fifteen-year-old Jem has kept a secret. When her eyes meet someone else's, a number pops into her head - the date on which they will die. Knowing that nothing lasts forever, Jem avoids relationships, but when she meets a boy called Spider, and they plan a day out together, her life takes a new twist and turn. Waiting for the London Eye, she sees everyone in the queue has the same number - something terrible is going to happen...
