- Age Rating: I would say about 15 or 16 and older. Basically have some sense of maturity.
- Targeted Audience: Teens mostly but adults will love the heartfelt moments.
- Love Line (If you took away the main character’s love interests would it still be a good book?): This book is strongly dependent on it’s love line.
On To The Actual Review:
Overview: I absolutely love this book. I wouldn’t change a thing about it. Someone other than me must feel the same way about this book. I couldn’t stop thinking about it for days after putting it down.
How Did This Book Make Me Feel? I was either laughing or crying through out this entire book and I balled my eyes out. I couldn’t put it down. I pulled it up on my tablet around 11 pm and didn’t look up until around 4:30 am when I finally finished the book. I cried for a good fifteen minutes after I was done reading too but it was totally worth it. Kinda in the same way that it was totally worth reading and crying over The Notebook.
Plot: The plot builds up nicely in my opinion. It starts off and ties together perfectly. Everything is answered satisfactory and I was very pleased with the ending.
It’s also very depressing and sad but the author has managed to add tons of comic relief smoothly which I am impressed by. It’s hard to go from ultra depressing to laughing your head off in only about 100 words (which is about a small paragraph for anyone curious).
The real reason why I love this book is that it gives you a completely different perspective without actually going through what the characters had to go through. It’s a complete mind opener especially to someone whose life has been indirectly affected by something that is out of their control and can’t really do anything about it. It helps to give you reassurance.
Would I change anything or want a sequel? No. The book is amazing as it is. I feel like a sequel would only ruin it.
Would I reread it again? Yes. This now one of my favorite books that I have read and definitely one of the most memorable.
Would I recommend it to you guys? Yes. Here’s the link.
Am I thinking about watching the movie? Yes but I don’t have very high expectations for movies based off books. Does anyone think I should go see the movie? I’m afraid of what they might cut out because there are so many details that you can’t add into the movie that pretty much take the book to the next level. Tell me what you think?
