It was pointless anyway–all the blah-blah-blabbing and, still, no one understood each other.
What a roller coaster of emotions for me… This book was so “real life” and practical. It didn’t feel like fiction; it felt like real life. It had so many doses of reality. I can’t say it’s fully “feel-good” but it also isn’t one where you sit there and sob. Well, not the entire time, but you might have some tears if you are as emotional as I am! It is like you enter some of these character’s lives, and travel with them over the years. You understand the characters, have been with them in the good and the bad.
The more I think about this book, the more I like it. It was so well-written, the characters felt real, with real flaws and problems people face every day. It didn’t stay away from hard topics to write about, such as mental illness, alcoholism, loss, tragedy, young love, blame… It had it all! It was a beautifully written literary fiction, and I’m so glad I borrowed it from my bookstagram friend.
I don’t want to say too much more to ruin this for anyone, but I definitely recommend it!
