I hoped this book was going to be good, I read the reviews and thought, well, this is either going to suck or be great, and I had an idea of what the ending might be even before I started the book, and though it was predictable it was really enjoyable.
The way it’s written helps the story, because it halos you focus on what the character is focusing on bringing with it a real sense of how he sees the world.

Lastly and delving a bit into spoiler territory, it ends in a hopeful note, which as someone who deals with mental illness in his family is a good thing to see, or hear.

In any case I would really recomend this book for anyone, but specially for people dealing with any mental illness, either themselves or as family or friends.

(Sorry for the messy review, it’s my first time writing one)

Enthralling and haunting

I took this book on the promise that it would make me cry, I just finished it and haven’t, thought I don’t think I quite processed it yet. When I started it I must admit I felt it a little cheesy, but as I listened to it more and more I couldn’t look (or hear) away from it. The story and the characters feel real in a way, alive, and every decision they take has you on the edge of your seat, I had moments in which I joined the dots for events that would happen and still find myself surprised.
I really can’t say much without spoiling the ending, but then again, They both die at the end.
