Before I Fall was an enjoyable book but it went by so slow! I enjoy fast paced plots and this was just to slow going for me. Also, I'm not one for contemporary fiction so I knew from the beginning I may not like it but the plot was well written. The ending did throw me for a loop and in the end I did like the plot it was the pace I had a problem with. I would recommend this to my friends as it is a really good book. It just wasn't the type of book I enjoy.
