    Before You Go started off exciting I have no clue why, but I was thinking of Mark Sloan and Lexie Grey from Grey s Anatomy as Noah and Tabitha even though Mark is wayyy too old to be a college student Clare James made Before You Go embody something true to life It was just the chemistry, and suave laid back flirting in the really great first and second chapters which made me feel like I was watching a television show and not merely reading manufactured words on a page I liked that, I loved t Before You Go started off exciting I have no clue why, but I was thinking of Mark Sloan and Lexie Grey from Grey s Anatomy as Noah and Tabitha even though Mark is wayyy too old to be a college student Clare James made Before You Go embody something true to life It was just the chemistry, and suave laid back flirting in the really great first and second chapters which made me feel like I was watching a television show and not merely reading manufactured words on a page I liked that, I loved that I sensed the interest and was really hopeful because I could imagine the script coming to life But that s all it was The whole way through the novel at 25%, 40%, 80%, it always felt like their relationship was just beginning Like they had just met and the sparks were there but it didn t raise off the ground When Tabitha and Noah were close to being intimate in the first chapter, wellthat feltheady than when they were intimate at about the 30th chapter because the spark fizzled out and it felt monotonous like I was reading the same thing again I couldn t feel the development Noah really disappointed me He was suave and laid back and had chemistry with Tabitha, yes in the first chapter Then he just became that guy The newspaper student journalist filled with some unresolved obligation to another girl and a mix of religious beliefs and he wasn t special He didn t have that trademark quality I look for in the hero of the novel But I was waiting for the electricity, the pain, protectiveness, his obsession and passion for her beyond control and needing her All he cares about was the newspaper He was always tamed, safe, and in control and I hated that He s not the I would do anything for her kind of guy He s the nice guy with the steady salary and job and flirty but never all consuming He could have become that but he didn t.Yes, they ve both had some shitty life experiences over the past year I wasemotionally involved with her past story and depression but there was a disconnect between Tabitha and Noah even when they shared their stories I was actually hoping she d hook up with her step brother and drop Noah even though their relationship was platonic It didn t happen.And when Noah and Tabitha declared their love for each other after a while, I understood it, but I couldn t feel like development It was just okay It never picked up and it had potential to but we don t get to know enough about Noah, and the plot line as a whole disappointed me despite the well written story

    Being probably one of the last ones to hear about the New Adult genre, I say this book was just okay The low rating isn t because the book was bad but rather it felt like it wasn t yet completed The story is told from first person by our heroine who had to deal with some devastating experience We come into the story after the initial crisis following this experience, but before the full recovery This gives us time to both discover in bits what exactly happened to her, and to see step by step Being probably one of the last ones to hear about the New Adult genre, I say this book was just okay The low rating isn t because the book was bad but rather it felt like it wasn t yet completed The story is told from first person by our heroine who had to deal with some devastating experience We come into the story after the initial crisis following this experience, but before the full recovery This gives us time to both discover in bits what exactly happened to her, and to see step by step how and with who she gets over things Even though I can t say I m a big fan of first person narration, I have to admit this helps get into a character s head, especially in a plot such as this where psychology is the big chunk of the story The subject matter of this book is not an easy one to write, I give that much to the author You gotta tread carefully, giving the necessary care to the character s condition I think in this case the author did right by the heroine but unfortunately failed to cue us in Even though for the whole of the book I was inside the heroine s head, I was unable to make a connection to her and I think that s where the book fails As the most important person in this story, Tabitha makes not much of an impression on me, even though I try hard to sympathize with her concerning her past And not only Tabitha herself, but also the rest of the characters feel as if they might or might not have existed and it wouldn t matter for me Her father, who help pick up the pieces together right after her incident is hardly there to make me feel for him The new best friend Tabitha makes is also supposed to be a big help for her in getting over things but again, her existence is like a shadow And Noah, the hero of the story, the one who s the biggest support, the biggest step in her recovery, fails to be that big It felt like everyone had the right amount of potential, and they came so close to make the story reach its climax, and yet, there seems to be no climax in the end.Another problem I had with this book was the unanswered questions Sure, we do get why she s the way she is, what happened to her and how it affected not just her but everyone around as well, especially her family But we never get anydetail than the overalls I felt as if I was an outsider, and it frustrated me not to get anyinformation concerning the heroine herself and her relationships with those around her, or the hero, who seemed like his story was a bitthan we re told It was things like these, the little details that were neglected yet if told, they would ve made a difference, and the fact that I couldn t connect with any of the characters, that made me rate this book this low The story had potential, it s a real life problem that I d be happy to read the heroine get over and move on with her life, but somehow it ended up being short of that potential I would ve preferred to read a hundredpages if it meant I d get the full of the story and a chance to click with the characters
