Tommy leaves only two chocolate bars in the plate and puts in the wrapper of one a note: The girl does not appear in the morning. After Rosa comes down, Tommy lies in bed upstairs and muses: He thought about life.
You never really got what you wanted. There were too many imperfections of this story but I won't mention them all.
Most importantly, I felt like this "book" doesn't have a plot. Okay, it has one but it was too confusing and indirect. I really resisted the urge to just leave the story unfinished. I really wanted to stop reading. But I wanted to see what everyone was talking about. I thought that with every chapter that I finish, the story would at least progress and slowly develop to reach the climax and main conflict but there were too much "filler chapters".
A lot of chapter was unnecessary. This story shouln't have been published into a book. A book is at least clear, polished, and clean. It was as if every chapter in this story was rushed. As if the author just thought of random scene to put in a chapter. To say that I am disappointed is an understatement. I really expected this story to be "good" but this story is really far from it. I don't mean to offend anyone in this review.
I don't want to come off as someone who is excellent in writing.
