Touching Melody - RaShelle Workman Thoughts just after reading it: This was awful. Just awful. Full review to come.This is not really a review – it’s just me babbling on about why you shouldn’t read this book – as in EVER. There may be a few spoilers, but I’ll do my very best to make them small and insignificant. Now lets start this review babbling with a list of some of the stupid things you will encounter, should you read this book:- Maddie goes to college in the same city she lived in before her parents died – the city in which she found her dead parents’ bodies! Who does that?!- Maddie obviously has some sort of amnesia. One moment she recalls Evan – half a page futher down she has no idea who he is and shortly after that she kind of knows who he is. What?- Maddie’s therapist told her to get a tattoo (seriously!) and she does that every year on the date of her parents’ death as a way to use physical pain to overpower the psychological pain. That’s all vert well, except her therapist suggested it to her when she was 14 years old!! What kind of therapist does that?!- Despite the fact that Maddie has been seeing a therapist for 4 years and seems to be doing okay, she still acts as if the murder happened a week ago. I get that she is still deeply affected, but come on – she wouldn’t be going to college if she were a wreck!The character development is completely unrealistic and weird. Maddie goes from disliking her roommate A LOT to being her best friend – just like that (flicks fingers). Maddie also goes from being an innocent virgin to throwing herself at the very guy she wanted to stay away from! And don’t even get me started on the ending! …Okay, I’ll get started: The ending is ridiculous! The story takes a twist which is beyond wild and unrealistic – I actually laughed out loud and then sighed and shook my head. I have nothing nice to say about Touching Melody (you probably know that by now) and I really advise you to stay away.
