TWELVE HOURS TWELVE LIVES WHO LIVES? WHO DIES?
HOLY SHIT THAT WAS A ROLLERCOASTER RIDE FROM BEGINNING TILL THE END.
This plot is so intriguing and exceptional that you will not let this book down until you've finished it. And then you'll want more.
Twelve characters, twelves points of view. Let me tell you, that's a lot of points of view to keep track of, but every story is top-notch. It'll be a challenge to remember everyone in the beginning, but you get the hang of it.
My own personal favorite characters from this book were Sebastian, Maggie and Tim. Guess I'm lucky some of them survived in the end...
|forever bitter over one death|
This book made me miss True Blood too, a lot. Guess every time I'll read something that takes place in a diner, I'll cry cause the series is over *gross sobbing*.
In the end, the author said "12 is about how we're all going to die and what we do with the hours we have left." I couldn't have said it any better. Every moment is precious and we only realize this when it's too late.
