3 1/2 stars.
While I did like this book, and I loved the H, Ransom, it was the h, Vaden that just annoyed the hell out of me. She acted like a 12 year old throughout the book. She also did not remain true to the character we were led to believe she was. She was supposed to be this carefree, nature loving, tomboyish girl who just loved life. 1/4 into the book and all she did throughout the rest is cry and have pity partys with herself.
