Review: The HourGlass Door by Lisa Mangum


His past. Her future. Can love bring them together in time?

Abby's senior year of high school is going according to plan: good friends, cute boyfriend, and college applications in the mail. But when Dante Alexander, foreign-exchange student from Italy, steps into her life, he turns it upside down. He's mysterious, and interesting, and unlike anyone she's ever met before. Abby can't deny the growing attraction she feels for him. Nor can she deny the unusual things that seem to happen when Dante is around. Soon Abby finds herself drawn into a mystery whose roots reach into sixteenth-century Florence, and she uncovers a dangerous truth that threatens not only her future but the lives of those she loves.


 
I was very disappointed with this book. I started this book with excitement thinking it was going to be another good love story from the back of the cover and some of the reviews I've read on it. I was let down big time! This is a really SLOW book and I was waiting for the moment where I would be pulled into the book 100%, but that moment never came.

The author takes way to long to explain what exactly is Dante and where he is from. The chemistry between Dante and Abby was just not there. I found them very boring and plain. When I finally reached the part (at about page 200 or so) where Dante decides to tell Abby everything about himself, I had already lost interest. I did not understand at all exactly how everything worked and what Dante was. I began to skip pages after that. Honestly, I gave up and did not even finish the book. :-( Nothing in the book stuck out to me, nor did any of the characters.
