    less depth than I expected

    I expected more from this book. It was readable, but shallow. Not as entertaining as books of similar depth I.e. Sophie Kinsella. Not a book I'd recommend unless you just really need something easy to read and are outbid books.

    If only the author of the abstract wrote the book

    ...then it would have been interesting. I felt duped while reading this book. Great concept, but just terrible writing. The author wrote in a very prissy and unrealistic voice for the character. Sure, it takes place in the 1960s, but her thoughts are written like a bad episode of "Leave it to Beaver". Social norms may have been different, but this book, written from the first-person perspective, was so overly formal and...prissy. There's that word again, but it just fits it so well. Sort of like a women wearing "sensible low heels" to go on long walks around a neighbourhood. Even more sensible, flats. Authors, please take note: not all women want long descriptions of a characters outfits or shoes to set the scene.

    Enjoyable!

    I really enjoyed this book. It was creative and intriguing, and I found myself invested in Kitty/Katharyn's character. I cheered for her and I cried for her. Overall, a good story!

    If you could chose your life...

    I love reading (Surprise!!!) which is why I bought this particular title. From page one I was intrigued by the actual and dreamworld of Kitty, trying to figure out how the author would come up with an explanation for this story. Right up to the end I was convinced the "real" world was it, but it made complete sense for the character to invent a dreamworld and make it real to escape the troubles in her life. Great Read, hence the five stars.

    Unexpectedly likable

    I read this book as a book club choice and at first I was too excited about it but after reading a chapter or two I found I couldn't put it down. An enjoyable book and an interesting concept.
