If you're thinking of picking up Just Like Fate, there is one thing you MUST know before you open the book. By chapter three, the chapters go from "Stay" to "Go". Two mildly different stories. Early in the book, the main character, Caroline, has to choose between staying with her dying grandmother or going to a party with her best friend. And that, ladies and gentlemen, I got massively confused. The chapters show the paths that both decisions will take Caroline. If she goes or stays. I didn't know that and I was confused for the first 33% of this book.
Just Like Fate is a surprisingly deep story of how how one decision can change your life in many ways and how, in the end, it will all work out.
The main character, Caroline, is pretty cool. I didn't find her annoying at all and at times I really, really liked her. She was relatable.
I didn't like Joel at all. I didn't really have a reason other then just a feeling at first but then has the book went on, I really didn't like him.
Natalie was so unnecessarily horrible. I feel like the writers made her so evil and mean and just horrible (sometimes I felt like crying because she was so mean)that it made her unbelievable as a character.
Now, one character was... I have no words for how much I loved him. And that character is Chris and I'm telling you right now if I had to pick one book character to spend my life with in real life, I would pick Chris. Thank you Cat Patrick and Suzanne Young for bring Chris Drake into my life.
Okay, but seriously, Chris is really great. He's believable and nice and kind and funny and he's not controlling or brooding. He's great.
And I felt like this book had really believable characters.
When you read Just Like Fate, you'll pick your favorite chapters. I loved the "Go" chapters. And up until the end, I kinda skimmed the "Stay" chapters. I hate Joel and I love Chris so made picking which chapters to read to the fullest really easy.
Overall, I felt like Just Like Fate was a really cool concept, great characters, and exciting. I really enjoyed it.show more
