Yeah I know what you mean. It didn't bother me as much but what annoyed me was not having any action. Even the climax was just a mis-understanding. It feels a bit anti-climactic. This mysterious guy walks in and doesn't tell you anything though he keeps dropping hints, but when he does reveal what he was hiding, it wasn't much and then there's this whole drama of I-want-to-stay-away-but-can't and after all that, you'd think there is some huge revelation that is going to make some difference, but noooo just a mis-understanding that takes about 2 pages to fix. It just feels like a let down, after the whole build up.
I mean how cheesy is that, that whole story repeats in the next life? Even the names of the characters start with same alphabet like James - Jeremy, Catherine - Chelsea. Weird how the whole book is told, but theres no mention of main character's past life names though.
