Unknown author rates on par with big names

4/27 Cheryl Casement gave 4 stars to: Night Music by Jojo Moyes
status: Read in April, 2011

Marie Claire listed this as a perfect summer read. I disagree. In my mind a perfect summer read is basic chic lit - something you don't have to think too much about and doesn't cause strong emotions. This book is deeper and a bit darker than that. It deals with death, grief, infidelity, and madness. I did enjoy this book and it's variety of characters. I felt the author explored the emotions surrounding these issues quite well, in spite of the fact that it appears in her opinion most people are unfaithful to their spouses.

status: Read in April, 2011

Gripping and fast paced this novel tells the story of two teenagers from vastly different worlds who hate each other on sight. The two must somehow come together to save not only their own lives, but the human race. The novel is chock full of suspense, intrigue, even a little romance, and is not so far fetched. It has a satisfying ending, yet left this reader wanting more. I couldn't put it down!
