The Book of Tomorrow - Cecelia Ahern Usually, there's a lot to learn from a book by [a:Cecelia Ahern|7116|Cecelia Ahern|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1404703770p2/7116.jpg]. Normally, it's about loving people, making time for what's important etc. From that perspective, this book was a disappointment. It felt like she was trying to tell me that every family has a secret, whether we like it or not.

This book was slow and it wasn't until I reached page 100 that the story really started, and it still wasn't the most fast paced book. I felt like the book had too many pages and not enough words to fill them out. It could've easily been a book of 250 pages! I don't like 100 pages of introduction! This just isn't good enough, was whe busy when she wrote this one?

If I hadn't known that when I started reading it, I might have liked it better.
