YouTube Vlog (username: immeomy), but I do plan on updating regularly again now that the horrible part of moving (packing/selling stuff) is over.
I bought Impossible a loooong time ago. When it first came out, actually. I loved the premise of this story, but for some reason it stayed on my shelf. The story kept me reading until the end. I was very interested in seeing how things would turn out. There were a lot of sweet and touching moments and a few that even made me tear up. But, this story is incredibly dark (rape, torture, manipulation, etc) and that darkness often felt out of place in the story, because besides these few plot points the story was so... clean (for lack of a better description). The bad guy was terrible when I thought about what he was doing, but reading about him didn't make me feel anything towards him.
The characters were another reason I just didn't fall in love. I couldn't relate to any of them. They were all so... good. The main character is raped and only a few days later is trying to figure out how to forgive the person who did it. That is an extreme example, but all of the characters seemed too perfect. I'm not perfect. I am pretty much the opposite of perfect and I have a hard time relating to such agreeable people.
Even though I enjoyed the story, it just seemed to lack passion. I wanted to know what happened, but I wasn't invested. Someone who shies away from dark stories could really enjoy this book and I would love to hear some other perspectives. I sooooo wanted to love this book, but I just didn't. This story is right for someone... just not me.
