On 258 pages of this book, we bought to scarie world of Avalin. With point of view of Avalin, it’s help us to have more emphatyze to Avalin. Yay, since the firs chapter i’ve liked Avalin so much. She is a smart girl and so strong. And collins also can make characters of Albert seem so mysterious.
By the way i am not native in English. But lucky for me, the literate used by collins on this novel so simply. So i can get it easyly. About layout and font of content, it’s not bad. And the cover which dominated with dark purple looks sweet gothic. I like that.
When Avalin see Albert first in the class is nice part for me. What did Albert say about meaning of life exactly cute. I amnot memorized it exactly, but it’s something like … “The aim of life is to being complete, being complete. Being complete is to find someone”. Very like this quote 🙂
So i rated it 4 stars in GoodReads, very recommended for young adult reader. can’t wait for the sequel : Twined part 2.
