Chase by Jill Knapp Zitron. I can't decide where I stand on this book. Did I like it? Did it bother me? Were any of the characters people I wanted to spend my time reading about? The jury is hung, but lets get down to reviewing and see how things sort out.
- Originality: 7. Post-college NYC adventures. I don't see a lot of books geared towards twenty-somethings specifically that aren't "New Adult" type romances.
- Absurdity: 4. Like every TV show/movie out there, people have enormous apartments in snazzy places. At least Amalia's bf lives in a walkup in Alphabet City. That looks more like real life.
- Level of Paranormal Romance: 4. I couldn't get behind and root for any of the romances in this book. One was dull and worn in, and I never warm to books or movies about cheating. That is not entertainment in my book. (Heyyyy, half-way pun!)
- Level of Harry-Potterness: 3. This book just didn't do it for me. The best thing was the well-done NYC landscape. Knapp-Zitron knows her neighborhoods. I liked this a lot, but if your not a local/NYC buff, you might have a harder time finding something to keep this read going.
