Why did I love this book?
This is the book I wish I’d written. It is beautiful and haunting. I was given this years ago as a Christmas gift at work and from its book cover judged it badly. So, it lay unloved for months to come. But wow. When I started to read those first few pages, I was mesmerized by the love story, the premise, and the beautiful writing hidden inside. Once, I missed my stop on the tube because I was so engrossed in it and was late for work. But since my boss had been the one to gift it, I got off lightly. I can still feel all those emotions from reading the last chapter. Tears silently slid down my face as an emptiness overcame me at the experience ending. I would love one day to write something that touched people the way this book moved me.
