Title- All the Bright Place
Author- Jennifer Niven
Genre- Young Adult Fiction
I enjoyed this book. It’s a weirdly cute love story about Finch and Violet. Finch is my favorite character. He is so funny, sarcastic but all he wants to do is die. Strange right? He sees everything differently. For him living the moment is more important than thinking about the future. Let’s face it none of us know what is going to happen tomorrow.
Both of them meet on the ledge of the school bell tower. Both of them wanted to experience what it felt like when you are about to die. Both saved each other to some extent, that’s what I think. He helped her get over her fears and come out of her shell. And violet gave him the reason to live one more day. She was that reason. They both fall in love. They found comfort in each other arms.
I had tears in my eyes reading it. It was not just about surviving days but how to live each day like it was last. Although Finch was sad from the inside, he always had a big smile on his face. He gave everyone why and how they should survive this world. He said, “The problem with people is they forget that most of the time it’s the small things that count. Everyone’s so busy waiting in the Waiting Room.” I cannot agree more.
More I think about this book I realize the deeper meaning behind this book. I will recommend this book to everyone.
