By: Jayden Hogue
This book is a timeless love story where ironically time is something the main characters lack. Natasha, is a girl who believes strictly in science and facts, whereas Daniel is a poet who believes in fate and love. The two meet on the streets of New York when Daniel is on his way to a Harvard interview and Natasha is at risk of being deported to Jamaica in 24 hours. Though she does not believe in love, her point of view changes throughout the book with Daniel’s persistence to get to know her. Will Natasha find a way to stay in the U.S? Will they make their love last? Or will time run out?

If you are looking for a love story, this book is worth reading. I did enjoy reading it, however I would not consider it one of my favorites. I felt that there was something lacking, perhaps a unique factor. I felt that I knew what was going to happen throughout the whole book because it was very cookie cutter. Although, the very end was not what I had expected which almost made up for the rest. Also, I liked the diverse set of characters. The characters were not the everyday characters you would find in other books or movies. Overall, this book was a good read, but maybe don’t put it at the top of your list.

I really like the title -- how does it fit into the story? (If you can say without any spoilers!)

Do you think the author was trying to changes peoples' minds about immigrants through the story?

All The Bright Places is an amazing love story! And yes, almost the whole book takes place in 24 hours

I saw a book review for this book and the idea of having 24 hours of time to fall in love really intrigued me!


Notsogoodreads(Austin.H) | 8 comments Not what I first expected thought the story between Daniel and Natasha still sounds interesting. Why dosnt' Natasha believe in love?
