There are moments when you can't believe something wonderful is happening. And there are moments when your entire consciousness is filled with knowing absolutely that something wonderful is happening.
Honestly, the length number of chapters overwhelmed me but I didn't stop reading it. This is the third Rowell novel that I've read and I swear, I just fell in love more and more with the characters and the way she writes.
Reading this book reminded me of Meg Cabot's Boy Next Door because of the e-mail style of writing.
It took me a long while to finish this book because of a lot of school works and exams, and I guess I really can't relate much to the characters, Lincoln and Beth, because we're of different age. The only things I have in common with them is Beth's love of movies and Lincoln's enthusiasm with computers. Plus, the setting of the book was in 1999-2000. Well, I was just 4 years old at that time so I didn't know about that Y2K scare until I was around 11 years old.
Getting back to the book, I think that Lincoln and Beth are polar opposites. Lincoln is kind of a wallflower, while Beth is more outspoken compared to him. I loved the way Lincoln and Beth "interacts" throughout the book, but I loved it even more when they got to interact personally. I really loved those chapters near the end.
This is one of those "page-turner" books that will encourage you to read more because it's really keeping you hanging and wanting for more.
