Captures the Nuance of Falling in Love PERFECTLY
The tiniest detail isn't neglected. I felt myself so immersed in the characters that I could even smell certain things described by the author. Brilliantly portrays the beauty and complexity of falling in love. And reminded me, a long married woman, what it felt like. A wonderfully well written tale.
A timeless book that always tugs at the heart strings. A good reread between books. With each character change at the new chapters came a new narrator setting the mood even better.
My mom taught me to read when i was 3 and i've been reading ever since. I LOVE to read and now 'listen' to books.
I saw the movie, first, didn't realize there was a book so had to read/listen. Nice story. Terribly terribly sad at times but also very enlightening. I cannot imagine the pain of losing so much of myself, but in all honesty, i think there is life after .... i would hope that in the event of my losing my physical 'self' i would learn to live a new life. Follow the new path life handed me. Easy for me to say ... now ... Life is a gift, not to be thrown back in the face of the Giver. I hope i never have to make the choice Will made or have to live with the choice like Lou did. A very thought-provoking story. Well worth a credit and will definitely re-read at some point.
