Cynical Reader

Give me a happily-ever-after fairy-tale and I'll fight you every step of the way, but give me a tragic, grief-ridden story and I'll let it consume me.

Life As We Knew It - Susan Beth Pfeffer I can't finish this.
I tried, I really did!
I just had too many issues with this book.

I usually love these survival/end-of-the-world books. My reasons for giving this one up so early are a little controversial (eek) I just really can't stand that the author let politics get so heavily involved with out being objective and arguing it from both sides. I know a lot of people probably agree, but I personally didn't buy this book to listen to that (that's what I watch the news for). I'm confused as to why an author would want to limit or alienate her readers.

Also the writing bothered me and the characters annoyed me to no end.

I'm sorry, these are just my thoughts and opinions. But I won't be continuing this book or series.
