Good but not great

The idea of the book was pretty good, but it felt like some of the main points were not fully explained. The main character was also a little too predictable most of time which made the storyline a little duller than it could've potentially been. I enjoyed it, but it wasn't life-changing.

My little girl!

Well, this book was great for my 8 year old girl, she thought that it was the best book she'd ever read! She ever asked for the rest if the books for her birthday and christmas! She read in three days because she said they were too good to out down!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (10 ):
Kids say (55 ):

Author Alyson Noel does a great job drawing readers into EVERMORE. The audience will hit it off with strong but vulnerable Ever, and be drawn to the mysterious Damen, much like everyone else is in the book.

However, audiences will grow tired of the constant, incessant references to how hot Damen looks all the time. After Damen arrives we are treated to and beaten over the head with how incredibly attractive this mysterious teen boy appears to everyone -- male, female, adults, teens -- EVERYONE. And the novel's end reveal is a hard swallow, relying on past information readers only learn at the last minute. It feels like a bit of a letdown after what had been an interesting journey. Still, most teens will be willing to overlook these quibbles and surrender to the gripping story -- and its sequels.
