Iona Baird asked:
From reading the summary (I haven't read any of the reviews yet either) I am already guessing the male love interest is going to die, there will be some morbid, unrealistic poetic lines, and the female character will realize the time spent with him will be worth it. Just tell me now (I don't care about spoilers), if I am right. So, in the end, is it worth it? Is there something special about this book?
MattyRae I think it is worth it. This book has a very real perception of depression and suicide, which I admired greatly. If you aren't sure about it, just check it out from the library.
This answer contains spoilers… (view spoiler)[You are right. There is also nothing special with this book. It glamorizes suicide as a quirky thing to do, turns it into a game. Finch is a stalker, simple as. He is manipulative and pushy and obsessed with Violet in a unhealthy way. He harasses her and the author tries to show this as romantic. Overall, I personally found it to be a horrible book and I would avoid it at all costs. If you are curious, check your local library so you don't have to spend any money on it. (hide spoiler)]
Mai I kinda see your point but it is like asking yourself, is it worth it to live, or is it worth it to love. It is definitely worth it to read this. It has a very different view of depression and suicide which makes the book have more depth. It is special to a lot of people because it is a book lots of people can relate to and know they're not alone. So in the end it was worth reading and i suggest you read it too
