it was amazing
Read from January 30 to February 16, 2012

It's pretty much rare occasion for me to give a 5 stars rating on a book I've read. But for this one I just have to... I'm so emotionally involved with this book..haha..

The amazing thing about reading this book is like snooping to somebody else's life (what's more interesting to do than that..huehehe) We're be brought by David Nicholls to have a lot peek about a life journey of Dexter and Emma. Especially to see how their relationship evolved for 20 years!! To witnessed their turmoils throughout the story. It's like reading Dexter and Emma private journal.

It's so awesome for me, how I also could get an emotional roller-coaster while I read this. Being happy, angry, sad, thoughtful, etc...you named it! I've got it all (or probably I'm being too drama queen about it ^_^)

I have to say, for 500-ish paperback with too little fonts size and line spacing and heavy working hours, I could managed finished this book "only" in 4 days. And people, that's a sign for a very interesting storyline. If you like works from John Green, you'll probably like this one. Well, It's the adult version one.
