Book Review #862
The Actor And The Housewife by Shannon Hale
Rating: one star (out of four)

This book just didn't work for me. I thought it was a really intriguing storyline and I was interested in seeing how one of my favorite authors would write this book. I was disappointed with the ending though. I was even disappointed with the alternative ending I thought up in my head. I couldn't think of any way to make me happy because I didn't believe how the characters were acting and wished that they had changed somewhere in the middle of the novel. There were some funny parts in this book that made me laugh or smirk, but there were also several places throughout the book that made me cry. I wanted to love this book, but there was just something about the plot and characters that rubbed me the wrong way and ended up putting me against the whole book. I wouldn't recommend. It wasn't the best by Shannon Hale.
