What a rollercoaster of emotions... This book made me feel everything - inspired, sad, angry, happy, hopeful. Everything.
I must say my favorite parts were the ones where Noah expressed his art. The way the author was capable of going in great detail about the works Noah created (or wanted to create) was very inspiring to me. Stunning. Truly a work of art. It made me want to paint and draw, which is a bad idea because I'm terrible.
The point is this book is phenomenal and it will make you feel some typa way. I mean, I still have tear stains on my face. Lovely.
