My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me:
1. I’m in a coma.
2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore.
3. Sometimes I lie.
I am not going to lie. I had a hard time getting into this book. I actually put it down, read something else and then decided to come back to it because of all the buzz it was getting.
In the beginning of the book, I found Amber to be pathetic and whiny and I didn’t like her. But about page 90, that all changed and I was HOOKED!
This book tells the story of Now (when she is in a coma), Then (the days leading up to when she went into the coma) and Before (when she was a kid). As we know from the description circulating everywhere, she is in a coma, she can hear what is going on but she can’t do thing about it. Which drove me crazy, as I am sure it is supposed to. She has no idea why she is in a coma and she is afraid and I was afraid for her.
There are some crazy twists and turns in this book and things I never saw coming but are plausible. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes an unreliable narrator (as I do!) and wants something different that will keep them up way past bedtime!
