bookshelves: fiction-novel, on-my-shelf
Read from December 26, 2010 to June 06, 2011

This book isn't exactly my cup of tea. Although I enjoyed its humor and found the characters interesting, it's not a book, I'll miss or go back to. Because it's a story revolving around suicide, life, death and purpose, it is very thought-provoking. It shows how life, with it's countless imperfections, can bring out the worst in people and cause one to make the wrong choices. In the end, I think the real message is the importance of relationship. Nobody is capable of surviving life alone. We need people to get through the insanity of the every day. We need relationships to stay grounded and have hope.

Hi K.D.! I can also understand why one would love this book :) My friend who gave me my copy loves it too that is why I took time to read it. I also try to open myself up to new things in terms of my reading choices and absorb the good from everything. So even if this book doesn't get me stirred up and excited, I don't regret having read it at all :)
