From the moment I opened my eyes I could only see the world in shades of gray. There was no noise, no sound, nothing. Deaf and colorblind, I was a loner. My world was bleak, silent and empty, until her. Until I met my neighbor, Elisa Jane Adrian. I want her. I need her. The fractured part of me feels whole when she's around. Like the world isn't so dark, isn't so bleak, and so still. I know it's impossible, but when I look at Elisa I swear I can see color, can hear the gentle inhalations of her breath. I know she feels it too, this magic, this desperate desire...
I first saw him when I was three. Julian Wright was different than any other guy I'd ever known. He sees the world in a way I know I never will. But he intrigues me. The way he looks at me with his sea green eyes, how he hypnotizes me with his smile.
It's dangerous these feelings I have for him. Reckless and stupid. I'm so much older than him, I know better. And I'll fight these desires, no one will ever know how I feel. I'll even pretend to myself that I'm not as hooked on him as he is on me.
I'll move away to Ireland, I'll forget him, but that's the thing about the Wrights, they have a way of getting under your skin, into your soul, and no matter the time or distance, once a Wright sets their eyes on you, there's no going back...ever.
So this book was picked for me by Berls at Fantasy is more fun. She had told me how amazing it was and was pretty much holding a shotgun for me to read it, seriously hope she still loves me after my review.
Of course I still love you. Bummed you didn’t love it –
maybe I set it up too much?
I don’t know what I was expecting but from the synopsis I was looking forward to reading this book through both Julian and Elisa eyes. That is not what I got, this story was only the POV of Elisa and I just wasn’t a very big fan of her. I wanted to like her but her obsession with age was making me mental. Julian was 2 years (YES ONLY 2 YEARS) younger than her and she was so hung up on it that she mentions it more often than I would have liked, she also had a thing about repeating the same stuff OVER AND OVER again though out the book. Like his tattoos, his physical appearance the fact that he was unable to see in color or hear.
I honestly loved Julian’s brothers, Julian seemed like such a weak person he handled things like a toddler and would throw fits or just be mature about certain issues. I thought with all that has happened to him he would be a lot stronger to prove himself that his difference didn’t make him any different then anyone else.
Julian’s brothers are great 🙂 I have to disagree with you about Julian though 😉 I thought he was very strong and did things – like his art – that were daring for someone with his obstacles. I just thought he showed Elisa his vulnerability in a way he didn’t others.
The story was slow, I wasn’t sure what I was expecting there either, Elisa made one of the worst decisions EVER. I understand sort of why she thought she needed to go but there was NOTHING there for her, it totally made no sense. Not good money, no family and no friends, it was just odd.
Again, I got this because I made a similar mistake following career and what I thought was a passion – young and ambitious thinking its worth everything. :/
I was really hoping I would like this book but it just had so many issues that didn’t work for me. The age thing was my biggest problem and even after he turned 18 she was still harping on what would happen when she graduated and he was still in school, it was frustrating, if you love someone as much as they did each other you would make it work and not choose the stupidest life changing experience and then totally regret it because it made things harder. I understand that don’t make sense but I don’t want to give it away.
Like I said I wanted to like this book and be all emotional like everyone else was when reading this but the Wright Brothers and I just didn’t hit it off like I was hoping.
I believe that you totally should give it a shot, just because I wasn’t happy with it doesn’t mean you wont be so read and enjoy and let me know what you thing when you do. 🙂
Yes, read it! Sorry you didn’t love it like I did Michelle 🙂
Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my review
