I assumed that my gut feeling would be correct most of the time. I assumed that motivation would lead to some of the best decisions of my life. I assumed a lot of things when I first added The Infinite Moment of Us to my stack of books that I carried around Barnes & Noble. I felt like I was reading a piece of cardboard. Yes, there was more than one occasion where I felt myself perking up and momentarily enjoying what I was reading, but when I though outside of the box for a few more assiduous seconds, I realized that what I had just read was the story of a girl who never had the time to have her own desires and beliefs. Who was constantly controlled by her parents and was not given the air to breath in.I read a story about a guy who believed in love at first sight-and who knew in his mind what he wanted, but just couldn’t find himself to do it. I was dragged through the story of Charlie-who with or without his messed up relationship with his “friend” Starrla-seemed like an okay guy.
The characters were okay, in my mind they’re the people who can be tolerated, but with time you could learn to care for. Wren Grey, finally discovered what she has always truly wanted, but could never strive to turn desire into reality. Charlie Parker, hormone controlled, boy, but with a great brother. Enough really said.
The romance wasn’t my favorite, not by a long shot, but it wasn’t bad either. I actually kind of enjoyed it. It was mushy, yes, maybe a little fast and unrealistic, but give or take a few, it was fun to read and experience. The cover will always be one of the best things that I have ever seen. I can’t forget bringing this book in my bag and reading it at the buffet (ever).
