Review

Wow. This book was wow. I was actually surprised at how good Suicide Note was. I think it had to do with the disclaimer. Yeah, it's great to know that the book has a happily ever after (and I definitely wanted one!), but I guess I assumed it wouldn't be done as nicely as it was. That's what I get for assuming. I'm thoroughly impressed with Suicide Note.

I devoured Suicide Note. I smiled, I laughed, and I cried (the book hits close to home in a few places). The ending was great and I really enjoyed it.

The only thing that I had any issue with was the chapters were labeled as dates. It confused me a little at first, but it wasn't that a big deal at all. It didn't matter much as it was easy to tell what was present day and what was in the past.

Rating

4 out of 5 stars
