I must say, my first impressions of this book were not great. 'Another cheesy romance story. This SO isn't gonna get a good review from me.' But this wasn't just another normal, cheesy, un-original love story. And this is going to get a good review from me. Wanna know why? Because this was a highly original love story with a whole new take on the term 'Paranormal' and I have never read a book quite like this before.
Entangled tells the story of Grace, who is struggling with life and love. Too tangled up in her own thoughts, she doesn't notice what is going on around her. This keeps the reader on the edge-of-their-seat, waiting to see what happens. I was glued to the page - I could not put it down; literally!
I found some of it hard to understand. Some of the things in the book were never quite clear. For example, why was she in the white room? Will she ever make-up with Sal? It was quite disappointing at the end because the answers to the questions above, we will never know unless there is a sequel. It would have been nice if at the end, all questions were answered so the book finished with the reader being clear on what had happened.
Other than that, this book was highly original and I really enjoyed it. I give Entangled a rating of 4/5 and I recommend this for readers aged 12+. I really do recommend reading this book! I've never read one like it. It was brilliant.
