The heroine pulled me in like a magnet, and I couldn't stop reading. Love the whole motley crew in this castle. ( )
  pianistpalm91 | Apr 7, 2024 |
I wish I had stopped reading this BEFORE Cassandra's complete 180 personality shift, the second half of this was just awful and it's so sad because I was enjoying it up until she decided she was in love with Simon out of NOWHERE. I'm supposed to believe that after she spent the whole book setting him up with her sister because she wanted to? And I'm supposed to buy that ACTUALLY Rose and Neil were in love the WHOLE TIME and wtf poor Steven. Also the cover of this book said it's now "the most romantic movie of the year"... this is NOT A ROMANCE. The second half of this book is so jarringly awful compared to the delight of the first half. I loved Cassandra and now I can't stand her. I swear she has anti-character-development. What a disappointment. ( )

It's been a while, but when I first read this years ago I loved it. ( )

Loved, loved, loved. But sooooo hated for it to end. And nary a cliché in sight. ( )

A darling little story of young love and sisterhood. I listened to the BBC Radio production and it was a great little 2 hour adventure with Cassandra. ( )

This book was such a wonderful, enchanting and unpredictable read that by the end of it I felt like I almost was Cassandra, since her confessions, recordings and thoughts in her journals gave me a thorough insight into her. I also loved how the sections of the book were arranged in differently priced notebooks, which really demonstrated the progression of the story

It feels, reading it now, as if this is the story that every romantic comedy Hollywood has ever made has been trying to tell. And when we come towards the end of the book and a marriage proposal and happily-ever-after storyline seems to be in the offing, I was worried we were going to stray into that territory. But Smith is too good a writer, Cassandra too interesting a person to settle for this.

When I read a book, I put in all the imagination I can, so that it is almost like writing the book as well as reading it—or rather, it is like living it.
