Molly is a complete mess due to childhood sexual abuse on the part of her adoptive father. Throw in the revelation that her twisted "father" has a biological son (whom he abandoned as a baby) and the biological son - Ian - gets everything in the will and Molly is even more of a mess. I couldn't connect with Molly, there was no depth to her.
Ian is a relatively together guy, he's nice... But he was rather 2 dimensional too. I couldn't connect with Ian.
So basically we have a story about two people finding each other, a girl with a damaged past and the guy who is supposed to help her heal... In theory it should have been emotionally wrenching and Mr. nice guy should've made me swoon, but that just didn't happen. I didn't emotionally connect with the characters (they had no soul) and the story wasn't all that exciting.
I don't hate the book, I don't dislike the book, I just don't feel much of anything for this book at all.
It just doesn't stand out from the crowd.
It was a quick read and it'll probably fade from my memory very quickly too. In fact, the only thing I'll probably remember about this book - long term - is penis penis penis. Beautiful Penis. Penis penis penis. Yep, that's right, Molly's (semi)frequent internal blathering about Ian's beautiful penis is what I'm taking away from this book... That and the gorgeous cover.www.where-did-the-sun-go.blogspot.co.uk
