    1. I think my main issue with this book is that it had very little point. While I wanted to finish the book, when I got there, I felt very underwhelmed and a little flat.The book starts off well. The central character, Kit, and her friends are engaging. They seem familiar. There are small sub-stories in her friends that are interesting and set the premise up very well.Then comes the introduction of Kit's family, the "big" twist of the book (which was largely very predictable), Kit's journey to Irel [...]


    2. This one has been sitting on my bookshelf for a long time. I started it many times but never persevered long enough to reach the end. I managed it this time! I would rate Maureen McCarthy as one of my favorite authors. Unfortunately, with When You Wake And Find Me Gone, she's not managed one likeable character. Kit was whiny, ungrateful and just downright rude and inconsiderate. Secondary characters were all to stereotype. And the plot itself was anticlimactic.


    3. How would you react if you found out that your only sister, the one person you once idolised, but then let you down big time, was actually your mother? Twenty year old Kit has just found out her sister is her mother meaning the two people she'd always thought were her parents are actually her grandparents, and her real father is somewhere in the depths of Ireland. The book teaches you about forgiveness, understanding, love and the violence of the "wars" in Ireland. Although long winded at times, [...]


    4. "When you wake and find me gone" started of excellently. I was excited to read about Kit's life, her friends and family and then I noticed something. Kit is and extremely self-centered character, to the point that you feel like she's the annoying girl that you know that constantly brings the conversation topic to herself. She wants everyone to devoted their time listening to her problems but whenever they attempt to talk to her about their own she shuts them down and doesn't want to hear it. She [...]


    5. This one will stay with me for awhile. It is one of those lovely books that make you want to read others to learn more details. This deals with the "troubles" of Northern Ireland, more specifically Belfast, and the different forms of protest the Republicans participated in. It gives a face to the terrorists and shows the struggle of those who love them. The only downside is that it is only available in Australia. I subscribe to a blog (Inkcrush) that has put me on to several great Australian wri [...]


    6. FIRST IMPRESSION:Beautiful title. The cover's pretty also.WRITING STYLE:Maureen McCarthy is one of my favourite writers of all time. Beautiful, flowing writingOT:She makes the most absurd things believableARACTERS:Loved all their personalities. And her main character, Kit, is very realistic.OVERALL:This is a beautiful read for anybody who wants to read a story which is set a little back in time. It's beautiful and conquers the true meaning of friendship and loveOUNT OF STARS:4


    7. Self-centered main character, plot that started but just didn't feel entirely finished or well done, half-baked romances and sappy love stories.The book just felt incomplete, in my opinion.Almost every chapter ended with "Everything was getting better. So many possibilities!" etc and then by the end of the next chapter it went "Things were horrible." This happened so many times. God, Kit could be infuriating.The book was meh.


    8. Tells the story of a girl who after an accident finds out her mother is actually her grandmother and her sister is her mother so she packs off to Ireland in search of her father. The story was quite emotional. It also gives a lot of information about the conflict in Northern Ireland which I didn't know a lot about before reading this book. It's an okay read but not one I'm likely to reread.


    9. I've started reading this one a few times and it just doesn't grab me. Maybe I havent persisted enough with it, but I don't have a lot of time for books I have to persist with. I might come back to it one day.


    10. Really enjoyed this book. Liked that I could relate to the University life of the characters. Also liked the fact that I learnt so much about Ireland through reading this book.
