Don't read this book. It's slow, boring and simply too long! I seriously would have been content to return this to the library after the 2nd chapter. I felt tortured that I HAD to keep on reading. If a book doesn't hook me in the first two chapters, well folks, it's not worth my time. I was so bugged that I HAD to complete this book because it was my first book assignment since joining the club. So the pressure to read was one thing, but the slow-ness of the book had me finishing the book a week after the review was due. Yeah, it took me over two weeks to read a book! Stupid, right? I seriously asked Ian to read the rest for me so I didn't have to. He declined of course.
Anyway, every book I read I try to walk away with a quote from it that will continue to inspire me. Here is the excerpt that really got me to the core:
"Heroes didn't leap tall buildings or stop bullets with an outstretched hand; they didn't wear boots and capes. They bled, and they bruised, and their superpowers were as simple as listening, or loving. Heroes were ordinary people who knew that even if their own lives were impossibly knotted, they could untangle someone else's. And maybe that one act could lead someone to rescue you right back."
