I've seen alot of posts about how much they loved Ian and the Wanda/Ian relationship, but i gotta say...and maybe I'm in the minority...I just didn't feel for him that much. I mean, I liked him, but he wasn't the guy in the story I rooted for. I felt myself more drawn to Jared. I know he was a complete jerk at the beginning, but you gotta think he had reason to be. I mean, here the love of his life was standing in front of him, but it wasn't her. She had been taken.
To me, Jared was the one that had more character growth towards the end. I mean, he actually ended up loving Wanda. Whereas, Ian didn't care for Melanie. It irked me that everytime Jared tried to show some compassion to Wanda, Ian would butt in and take her away. And when Wanda first lost Melanie when Jamie was sick, he didn't really care. He thought maybe it was best if Mel just stayed gone. I get that he loved Wanda, but come on. There's a human...one of your kind living in her mind and you don't care that she might be gone and never come back?
They shared some sweet moments and like I said, Ian was a good guy, but I just remember getting anxious for Jared to come back into the scene when I read hte book for hte first time. It was almost like feeling what Mel and Wanda felt around him. lol
I'm glad he was able to give Wanda a happy ending, but I just didn't feel as much compassion towards him like most readers.
Am I the only one?
