Amy Lennox doesn’t know quite what to expect when she and her mother pick up and leave Germany for Scotland, heading to her mother’s childhood home of Lennox House on the island of Stormsay.
Amy’s grandmother, Lady Mairead, insists that Amy must read while she resides at Lennox House—but not in the usual way. It turns out that Amy is a book jumper, able to leap into a story and interact with the world inside. As thrilling as Amy’s new power is, it also brings danger: someone is stealing from the books she visits, and that person may be after her life. Teaming up with fellow book jumper Will, Amy vows to get to the bottom of the thefts—at whatever cost.
As a reader, imagine you could jump into every story you would like, including you’re favorite one. That would be the biggest dream of every reader come true, right? Imagine you can talk to your favorite character, you could be his/her best friend, that sounds quite amaizing for me. And this is what this book is about, jumping into the bookworld. Sounds good uh?
Despite the storyline was pretty interesting and the whole idea of the book was great, I found that I, personally, couldn’t get into the plot. I don’t know how to explain you guys. But since I started and finished I wasn’t moved or identified with any of the characters. There were things missing, specially in the end, and even God knows that I would love to like this book, I just couldn’t. I won’t lie to myself, not even to you. I don’t know if it was Amy herself as a main character, or her decisions, or perhaps the instant romance, or God, I just don’t know, but I hated this book. Come on, I don’t want to be rude, because I know that as an writer you put everything into a story, and you expect others to love it just as you do, but Mechthild Gläser didn’t make feel that connection.
For me this story was a pain to read, and I just wanted to finish it ASAP… Please don’t blame me. If you liked this book I respect your opinion as I hope you respect mine.
Unfortunately I couln’t find any quote that I could feel identified with. U.U
