“Depression is like a heaviness that you can’t ever escape. It crushes down on you, making even the smallest things like tying your shoes or chewing on toast seem like a twenty-mile hike uphill. Depression is a part of you; it’s in your bones and your blood.”
I’m not sure I can really form my thoughts about this book. I really enjoyed it. I loved the plot and the feeling of hope I got while reading it. However, the plot and characters seemed really dull for me. I couldn’t connect with the characters at all. The characters seemed flat and boring with no real personality. They were both impossible to figure out.
I loved the idea of the story. It was unique. Not something I would have thought of. The ending happened too fast and nothing was really resolved. It felt like “hey these characters are super depressed and want to die” then boom all was well again and nothing hurt. Like what even? I have too many unanswered questions. What happened to the characters? What happens to the families? WHAT HAPPENS!? I need answers. None were answered. 😦
I was hoping for something more… I think I only underlined like 1-2 quotes in this whole book. It didn’t speak to me or inspire me and that was a huge let down. I think I was just expecting more from this story and the characters. However, I still enjoyed the story nonetheless. I ended up like Aysel towards to ending.
