This is a book review about the book “All the bright places.”
If I’m gonna be honest I was really skeptical about this book at first. I had heard some rumors about it, and I thought it was going to be just like the fault in our stars. (By the way, if you haven’t read that one, you should totally give it a go!)
I bought it on sale last summer, and I read about 30 pages when I got home. I thought it was boring, and not-my-thing. Then a few days ago, I took it up again, and I just fell in love with it a lot quicker than I thought. Honestly I had no idea why I even started reading it again, but I guess it was because now that I had spent money on it, I would have to read it.
My friend has been pushing me too read it for such a long time, and I just feel insanely stupid that I didn’t believe her when she said it was amazing.
The book is about a girl named Violet Markey, and A boy named Theodore Finch. They are both depressed, and considering to commit suicide. They meet each other in the bell tower at their school, both considering jumping. Finch convince Violet to go back down, and suddenly the whole school thinks that Violet was the one who saved Finch, when it really was the other way around. Violet, who is suffering from the lost of her sister who died in a car accident, has given up everything in life that makes her happy. Finch, is damaged by his childhood with violence in his home, and a crazy dad who has moved in with his new perfect wife and Child. In school he is being bullied, and called things like; freak. After Finch saved Violets life, he cannot get his eyes of her, witch results in him asking her to join him to do a project in Geography about visiting Tourist attractions in Indiana, their own state.
After this, the book is mostly about how to get better, how to get your life back on track. Finch is trying to get rid of his suicidal thoughts, and Violet trying to recover from the accident, in witch her sister died. But the deeper you fall down the black hole, the harder it is to escape…..
Personal and finial thoughts:
I love this book. Like every other good book I’ve ever read, this is a part of me, and it’ll probably always be.
This book made me cry, laugh, and just smile because our two protagonists are so cute and sweet together. It’s realistic and relatable, and something I think a lot of teenagers around the world has enjoyed reading.
I promise you, you wont regret reading this.
See you guys around,
