Title: Never Never
Author: Colleen Hoover & Tarryn Fisher
Series: Never Never #1
Best friends since they could walk. In love since the age of fourteen.
Complete strangers since this morning.
He’ll do anything to remember. She’ll do anything to forget.
So I had heard over and over that this one will leave you upset and on this huge emotional cliffhanger. I will say that I was drawn into it and wanted to know what was going on. I wanted to figure out why both Charlie and Silas are both without any memory of anything in their past. Why is it just the two of them? Why did it happen? What is going on?
That being said I did enjoy the book. I love everything by Colleen Hoover. I can say it is pretty easy to tell that two different people wrote the book, but I think that adds to it. You can tell one person is writing for Silas and one is writing for Charlie. It makes it feel more real I think. I definitely didn’t care much for Charlie and when I found out that Colleen wrote Silas’ part I laughed because I could tell that it was her writing style. Tarryn is a little more closed off and likes to be more secretive in her writing and you can feel it in the reading of Charlies side. Over all I liked that two people wrote.
Now…I am all about cliffhangers when there is going to be another book soon, and this one is not too far out. So when it came to the cliffhanger that everyone was talking about it wasn’t that bad really. It was more interesting I thought. It didn’t leave me screaming WHAT THE HELL. So I take that for something, BUT I knew it was coming so that might be part of the reason.
I am not 100% sure as to why they decided to pull this book from preorder and make it a series on amazon it says it is about 140 pages (158 paperback). That is a short story, not a novel. I feel like they could have just made it a novel and many would have been much happier. I am not a fan of short books in a series. So that is what I was not a big fan of. It should be advertised as a short story “series”.
I have an idea of who knows what’s going on, the fact that when I saw a post on fb about who the authors pictured as the characters there was one person on there that we only saw twice in the book. Why would they need an image for a person who was not prominent in the book? Because there is more to her and she knows more…I am just sure of it, because there were people that were in the book more often and they didn’t pick people they would cast for them. (hmm……)
So all I can do now is move on and find something else to read, I will come back to this storyline when the next book comes out. I just hope that it isn’t going to be drug out into like 3 or 4 books. As much as I absolutely LOVE Colleen Hoover I am not a fan of having to wait months to read a short story to be left wondering okay now what the hell is supposed to happen? lol
BUT that is what you can do when you are Colleen Hoover. 😉 keep people on pins and needles. Draw them in and just give out a little at a time. That is called torture. In the mean time I will be waiting for her next book to come out (Confess). Since that is not far away.
Overall this is a good read, it is witty, and suspenseful because you are wondering what the heck is happening and why. It is two high school kids that are left wondering who they are and why they can’t remember anything. If you want something that is short and leaves you wondering (while you wait for the next one to come out) this is a must read.
