3 stars!

A leitura desse livro foi sofrida porque me senti como se estivesse lendo tipo pra sempre!
Acho que pelo fato de ter pouco diálogo entre os personagens, acabou se tornando uma leitura arrastada, cansativa e repetitiva.
E depois de tudo isso, quando pensei que finalmente as coisas melhorariam, puff veio o final... o que pra mim, foi corrido, em comparação com a demora que foi a maior parte da história.
O tema abordado é bom? É bom sim, mas a maneira como foi escrita,desenvolvida não foi, p

About That Night is such an intriguing and relatable story that shows what can occur when guilt and blame eat away at a person.

The storyline is different and unconventional with chapters told from the POV of both Emma and Nick who attempt to form a relationship despite the secrets they keep.

I was pleasantly surprised by the turn of events and how both Nick and Emma make each other whole. Loved it.
At 72% I just couldn't take more of the Hero's BS. He up and went missing to binge drinking for a whole week. Then came home to do more drinking and being a total dick to the heroine. Such a melodramatic arse. To get triggered over such small misunderstanding.

I just skimmed through after that.

This was a really emotional read. My heart broke for Nick and watching him heal was so gut wrenching. I loved the way their relationship unfolded and how they stayed strong for each other. I wish we would have gotten a little more about Emma but overall this was a great book.

Depressing and angst-ridden. That sums up the entire book. The writing is good enough that it saves it from a lower rating. 2.5*Xanax needed*stars

When what you're doing is something close to heart, it doesn't feel like work at all. But if it's something you feel obliged, no matter how noble, it gets dragging. Emma is a doctor, but she's getting drained by all the things that she's seen. Fed up, she even drifts apart from her friends, but something about the guy in the bar made her intrigued. Nick doesn't even bother to pretend to be happy-go-lucky. It's obvious that he has his demons to fight, but looking at Emma makes him try to be a goo ...more

"What if" is the most brutal question we put against ourselves, especially when tragedy pertained to it. "What if" leaves no room to breath, instead makes us running in circle that's getting smaller each time that question comes back. "What if" chokes us.
Nick, the Hero, was tortured with the "What if" and was not able to escape the choke. When Emma appeared into his life, I thought she would be able to release him, but somehow the condition turned into something I didn't expect.

It didn't work for me. A lot of innecessary swearing and generally, I'm okay with some f*ck or sh*t, but it feels like any of this words where in every page, three or four times.
Anyway, even without the swearing part, it just wasn't what I expected. A difficult story, I know, but it could have been better. I ended tired of Nick and Emma, really.
