    One thought on “The Emerald Garden”

    1. I'm not sure what to make of this book. In some respects it was compelling and had me turning those pages. Yet at the same time, I think it could have been better executed. The first half of the book was exciting, but the middle dragged a bit so the element of tension and suspense withered away. This is a story about two sisters and their relationship. The one sister is extremely jealous and manipulative, always demanding to be first and the center of attention. Her jealousy ends up destroying a [...]

    2. This book was alright, a bit slow paced. I can't believe Vinney was so kind to her mother and sister, especially after what they did to her. I would of loved to see Vinney's sister get hers but at the end of the book I was left unfulfilled with that. I'm glad that the truth came out in the end and Vinney got Nick, although I have to wonder if that "the first moment I saw you, I loved you" moment was actually true. In the book the whole love thing between them seemed kind of cheesy!

    3. Read it a REALLY LONG time ago. I don't remember the story anymore except for the poem and that back then, it was really good with lots of angst. It probably wouldn't appeal to me anymore if I read it now.

    4. i disliked it bcoz vinney was so pathetic. her mum and sis treated her like a dog, yet she cud not help herself playing good Samaritan! nick admitted early on dat he loved her but she wud not accept him bcoz her sister wanted him too. i never saw what the hero saw in vinney. she was too good, too selfless to be true!dat it got on my nerves!
