Bütün dizi harika. Bu, büyük çocukların okuması için harikadır. Lise çağındaki çocuklar gibi.
This book irked me a little. I didn't like the way a lot of the characters behaved, and when they started behaving better, it got a little too sappy for me. Carly, the heroine, just had surgery that's given her vision after being blind all her life. Two weeks after the surgery, she goes to a bar and gets knocked up by Hank Coulter. She was told that getting pregnant right after the surgery would be very bad and now she's going to go blind again, can't afford to take care of the baby on the way, and her plans to go to grad school are ruined. Hank offers to marry her, she accepts, they slowly fall in love, blablabla... Everyone was so irresponsible in this book, Carly most of all, but she's portrayed mainly as a victim/martyr. It really annoys me that knowing she wasn't supposed to get pregnant, she still went to that cowboy bar and then had sex with a total stranger in the back of a truck. I don't care how vulnerable she was, it was stupid. Then when she realizes she's pregnant, she won't even consider abortion. Okay, it's a sensitive topic, but not only did she have no way of supporting a child, it was going to ruin her future. When an opportunity to salvage her future and take care of her kid half-presents itself in Hank trying to help, she pushes him away again and again until he finally has to blackmail her. I just can't stand Carly. In addition, most of the book is spent with everyone blaming Hank for getting her pregnant. She does eventually admit to bearing some of the blame, but it comes so late I can't give her much credit for it. For a character who's soooooo "strong-willed" and "independent" and all, it took her long enough to realize she had a little personal accountability for the situation.
Very predictable and not that great.
