NOT a literary work of art

this book is a linear, uncreative, run of the mill fantasy book that sounds exactly like something a 13 year old wrote- people fall in love within minutes, and develop deep emotional connections in a day, plot lines rushed and felt as though i was reading a 7th graders school project, mind you it was a good project for a 7th grader. The story line isn't too bad, its predictable, yes, butit kept my interest. Not very good for those of us over 13, but good for very young to pre-teen girls. I would read it to my 8 year old cousin. But everyone once in a while , us literature buffs need to take abreak from great works of art and read something easy, simple, predicatble, not indepth, book.
