Every You, Every Me vs Revolution


Only speaking on behalf of me....I started Every you, Every me and thought it was really unique. Loved the photos and the story was intriguing - until it got weird. Suddenly a girl from out of nowhere shows up and ends up being the photographer. I didn;t really get where she came from and I don;t believe she was every really introduced properly. Disappointed :(
Revolution was a nice surprise. I've said it before in this very blog - I am not a history buff. What Revolution did was actually make me interested in the French Revolution. I wanted to know more, I wanted cheer for the heroine. Way to go Jennifer Donnelly - my vote is Revolution to move on.
