Quiz: You finished the book and you’re trying to figure out how to rate the book because the first 52% you were bored and hated it, the second half of the book was entertaining, but the ending was a let down. You:
a) Give it 2 stars – if over half the book bored you then it probably wasn’t worth it.
b) Rate it 3.75 stars – you did like the second half. 5 stars for most of the second half minus 2 stars for the beginning equals 3 stars. With an extra .75 worth of a star for the fun buddy read.
c) Mark it read and give it no stars.

From the author on why she’s okay with a different ending for the movie-
“there was something thrilling about taking this piece of work that I’d spent about two years painstakingly putting together with all its eight million Lego pieces and take a hammer to it and bash it apart and reassemble it into a movie.”
