This book is amazing.
Let me give you 3 reasons:
- It’s a light and heavy read at the same time. The book is written in a conversational way which makes it easy to read. It does however tackle a deep topic like teenage growing up. Not a teenager anymore but I guess some of the things that were written I can relate. Took me a few years back.
- It’s a different world to me. I don’t read books that are written by men mainly because the first one I read was crap. The only other books that I read were Deception Point which I liked and Stephen King’s which I can’t remember the title cause it was too heavy for me. Definitely a gender author change and I kinda liked seeing the story through a man’s perspective.
- You’ll learn a lot. The way Charlie, the character in the book, thinks is different which sometimes I wonder if I thought that way before but I guess I never felt depression anyway. It opens you though to a whole lot of perspectives in life. I don’t want to give an example I might provide a spoiler.
The book also reminded me of eating alone at a food court and watching people interact. LOL. I don’t stare so I don’t think that’s creepy.
Good book, good read! Better that Emma Watson would be acting as Sam in the movie! 🙂
