Thoughts

I liked the format of this book, the way it skipped through years and only dipped in and out of the lives of our two main characters. It reminded me of One Day, which also only visits the characters on one day a year. You really get a good sense of the life being lived, and it was worth going on the journey with these two. Actually, [spoiler alert] just like One Day, there’s a super sad ending, and if I’m honest I could have done without it. It’s well written and winds to a satisfying ending but just left me feeling despondent.

Rating: 4 / 5
