Review: Precious and fragile things by Megan Hart

Goodreads Review: 

Gilly Soloman has been reduced to a mothering machine, taking care of everyone and everything except herself. But the machine has broken down. Burnt out by the endless days of crying children and menial tasks, and exhausted from always putting herself last, Gilly doesn't immediately consider the consequences when she's carjacked. With a knife to her throat, her first thought is that she'll finally get some rest. Someone can save "her" for a change.But salvation isn't so forthcoming. Stranded in a remote, snowbound cabin with this stranger, hours turn to days, days into weeks. As time forges a fragile bond between them, she learns her captor is not the lunatic she first believed, but a human being whose wasted life has been shaped by secrets and tragedy. Yet even as their connection begins to foster trust, Gilly knows she must never forget he's still a man teetering on the edge. One who just might take her with him.

My Thoughts: 

Hmmm !! What I like about this book? Lemme think ... I was in between 2 or 3 to rate. I gave 3 because of her writing. Writng was good, the plot and the concept was also good. But it tend to be a bit more repetitive. 

There are couple of things that really bothered me. Firstly, the decision Gilly makes and secondly, some of the metaphors were not well written. These little things might not disturb others, they might ignore them, but m a bit more concerned in these writing skills. 

Overall its an OK read. Her writing was impressive, just that it went off at some places. Looking forward to read more of Megan Hart. 

Happy Reading !!
