Return to Book Page. I had never read anything by Nancy Werling before, and I doubt I will again.
Let me try again. So Lucy gets raped, and we don’t see how that affects her. I love the premise, but the execution is lacklustre.
The thing is, Lucy and Zach are so similar in their povs that it became pathetic. Basically, the reader knows from the very beginning about the curse, and that it was spoken by an Elfin knight. How many of you have been able to secure a car loan with no credit, school loans, and only impossiblw part-time job to your name? This book have some morals.
I remember hearing some buzz when it came out, and I put it on my to-read shelf, and then it sort of slipped away from consciousness.
Why I thought about that?
Impossible by Nancy Werlin
Even if it did feature teenage pregnancy, it wasn’t as if it was intended. In fact, I loved the beginning.
The writing itself is clumsy and wrelin grammatically questionable if not incorrect. As the couple is posing for pictures and is about to leave for the evening, the unthinkable happens. They are each destined to become pregnant at eighteen and, upon birth of the child who is always female, they succumb to madness.
So how does a story that begins as strong as this did, end up with immpossible star? I can’t get into it It all felt very real.
They actually could be, however I refuse nahcy go back and check as I would have to read this book again. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
The only thing worse than this book is that some people like it. Like Stephanie Meyer before her, Nancy Werlin is flaunting teen pregnancy as a shortlist way to a happy ending with your very own prince charming.
Now repeat after me Werlin’s adult application to the story wasn’t carried throughout. Lovely, an eighteen and a twenty year old that are going to get married to start a family. Most definitely NOT as good as I hoped it would be. Guess I shouldn’t hold my breath. Look at some of my previous reviews She even immediately expresses forgiveness for her rapist. She must manage to complete three mancy impossible tasks, or else she will fall into madness.
Impossible by Nancy Werlin
But will it be enough to conqu Lucy is seventeen when she discovers that she is the latest recipient of a generations-old family curse that requires her to complete three seemingly impossible tasks or risk falling into madness and passing the curse on to the next generation. The story flows at a dramatic slow pace, where nothing important actually happens.
Now that I’m thinking of it, my opinion is declining even further. This had everything to be amazing!! Impossible by Nancy Werlin with spoilers.
