This is the tale of a pull and push that inevitably happens with those of an alike nature. A young man and woman drawn together for their similar natures only to realize that it's that same quality that pushes them apart. Frankly, hasn't that theme run a little too redundant? Haven't we yet learned that opposites attract, and alike repel? Well, I guess you can already guess I wasn't too impressed by this book.
I came to own this book by way of a GoodReads recommendation. I actually stumbled on it at first by viewing someone's profile who was already 'currently-reading' it. Afterwards, that same person recommended that I read it. I liked most of their book selections, I loved the summary of the book, and finally by way of it being chosen in my Global Reading Book Club, I gave it a go. The big dissapointment came when I was quickly unimpressed by it. I didn't like it much at all.
The writing is more than stale, in my opinion. I grew to boredom often than not. I wasn't pulled into the plot at all, if maybe one time. I guess it just maybe isn't my type of book, maybe a little too 'mathematical?' Which ironically shouldn't have been a problem fom me since I come from a science background, yet it was. Go figure!
I will leave it at that since it is all I actually want to say about this book that left me dry for the most part.
