Another DNF

THIS SIDE OF THE SUN - Blythe Santiago

I hate to DNF books but sometimes reading becomes torture. This appears to be written for a high school level. It babbles on about nothing for so long it was difficult to work out what it was supposed to be about.

Parts of it were completely unrealistic. After an explosion, a man picks her up? What about possible internal injuries?

It was obvious before the first chapter finished exactly how it was going to end, but I didn't get that far. I started feeling nausea at "The thought of this stranger leaving my side sent me into near-panic" (inappropriate use of hyphen aside)

It goes downhill from there.

"His face was full of intense tension"


Yeah. Gave up on this one early on.
