    Does anyone else read a book, then can t decide whether they loved it or hated it Sometimes I bounce between a 2 star and a 4 star rating and I wonder what other people must be thinking that I keep changing it But I imagine I m not the only who has that issue when reading a certain book For me, this was one of those books that I can t quite make my mind up on Eternal Echoes is a collection of poetical refle
