Synopsis:

Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.
What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to lose her job or that knowing what’s coming is what keeps her sane.
Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he’s going to put a stop to that.
What Will doesn’t know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they’re going to change the other for all time. (Goodreads)

Opinion:

Hello everyone! So, if you read my previous post, you already know that I read this book in January, but was hesitant to write a review on it because of the feels. After gaining a bit of distance from the book, I now feel equipped to write a review.

Holy cow, I cried. A lot. As in I was hysterically sobbing for 50 min without pause. The story was so incredibly gripping, and it had a way of grabbing a hold you without you realizing it, until, yes, you are sobbing like a newborn. But the worst part of the whole sobbing thing, is that the sadness in this story is so complicated – you are not really sure what to do. Like a character death, you are sad because of said death. But this sadness is so much worse because it is so confsuing.

That being said, I love that. I think it shows the mark of a truly good author to be able to invoke those feelings in a reader.

The characters, like the story, were brilliant. They had a way of completing each other, but at the same time they had things in common. I don’t know, I just liked their chemistry.

I won’t say anything about the plot, because I feel like anything I say will just end up being a spoiler. But trust me guys, this plot is good… think P.s. I Love You.

Also, I believe that this book is going to be a movie with Emilia Clarke and Sam Caflin – now that is something that I want to see.

Anyway, this was an amazing book, even though I still cannot think about it without being emotional. Recommending to everyone!

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!
