Never judge a book by its cover

They tell you never to judge a book by its cover, but I am here to tell you that is exactly what I did with this book, and I was not disappointed. I am a Charlie Bowater simp, so whenever I see her art on a book cover it's automatically added to my TBR, and this was no exception. I did, of course, read the synopsis as well, and it only solidified my decision to read this beauty. I think it only took me two days to get through the story. To be very honest, it reminded me so much of M. Night Shyamalan's The Village that I almost couldn't see past that plot line, but I don't necessarily think that was a bad thing. The idea of a wandering forest (HOW? I need the mechanics behind this please! Although, I think maybe magic is the only explanation needed) and a poisonous lake were thrilling, to say the least. I had a little trouble understanding how easily Leelo was able to forgive and forget (seriously, did she even register how she was being treated?), but otherwise I loved the character development throughout the story. Overall, the story ensnared me in the best of ways. Very enjoyable indeed.
