I’m not sure what to make of this book.
Before I began, I read the reviews. They were very positive. People loved it. Changed them. Told them something they’ll remember forever. I’m not sure if I agree.
The book was more of a reflection than a story. It was a point of view that was somewhat pessimistic and nostalgic. I liked that. I also liked the author’s writing style. I really liked that. It didn’t get in your way and it was refreshing to read something and not have to worry about finding an error. The whole thing was an error.
There was something that was also very unique about this book that I discussed a bit yesterday morning. It was the way the author didn’t fall for the old trap of completing the story or to inject suspense into it. It was what it was and sometimes the typical is so easy to achieve. I don’t know…
Overall, I would recommend this book because it made you think a little. Only if you were in the mood to think though. If I were looking for something whimsical and entertaining, I definitely wouldn’t have enjoyed this book. After a few shots of something, it has potential.
