I was able to picture everything. and feel everything. I am not done with it. I can't stop listening, and yet I can't bear for it to end. I am so drawn to it and I don't want him to get caught. I want to hide the painting for him. I want to comfort him so he doesn't have to do drugs. I want him to know that he isn't alone.
Theo, Theo, Theo. His sadness. His brilliance. His pain. He needs to talk to someone so much. (I am not done yet, so maybe this works out!)
Hobe accepting him immediately at the door when he showed up the very first time. I can't imagine reading the book. I think everyone should listen to the audio book.
Cry. Very emotional to me.
Recently had two close friends die and I felt so emotional right from the beginning of the story. I wish everyone would listen to it with an open mind and picture themselves in such lonely, sad circumstances, and yet have people who come along and save you along the way.
Charm. Character. Love. Truth. Humor. I laughed to myself all the time.
Every single thing. I can't believe an author can be so sensitive, and warm and funny at the same time.
Yes. Glad I read the previous one where Bertie wanted to be seven. A great prequel to this.
I honestly don't know. Knowing Bertie, and the fact that he can play the blues, is so heartwarming.
Love it. Wish there were lots more already done.
sincere, funny, real
When Bertie made a friend.
the whole book was real because of him. it always takes awhile to get into a voice and then you are hooked!
The love that each character had for each other. Loyalty. When Matthew does everything he can to show love for Elspeth from timing her eggs, fluffing her bed, and buying her a home it really gives a person a wonderful feeling inside.
I wish I had started with the first in the series. not sure if going backwards would help or matter. hmm.
