    Interesting perspective on David's love. I can totally see that, but as I was reading the book my initial reaction is that he did love her. I can see this being a fair argument either way.

      off topic for a sec but LC Rachel- your hair looks awesome!
      ** back to the book.. I think that while the author did develop the characters well they were never actually fully developed which leaves a lot of room for the reader to create an inner life about who they are reading. Does that make sense? I knew that the book was coming to an end but I felt unsatisfied with the ending. I tried asking myself what ending I really would have enjoyed and I couldn't figure it out. Did anyone else feel this way?

        Oh def. I think the reason I felt so unsatisfied is that David died and absolutely no progress was made towards developing the relationship between the characters. Basically- nothing changed. They went on hating David but this time with valid reasons.

        I somewhat am frustrated with the author for ending the book this way, but yet, I also realize that it is closer to reality. This happens all the time in life- problems go unresolved and closure is never found.

        Oh and thanks for the hair compliment. hehe :)

          I definitely felt this way too. There were too many issues left hanging. I didn't feel satisfied after finishing the book.
