I’m 4% in at the point of writing this and can already tell you I love it. I understand why people love this book so.
How many people identify with Cath? Because I can tell you that I do.
I don’t think I’ve felt myself in the characters shoes before. I don’t tend to connect to characters like that. Perhaps because I don’t generally read these types of books.
But it’s not just how strongly I connect to Cath, I don’t think this book would be so good if not for the writing too. Rainbow Rowell is a beautiful writer. I’ve always been a fan of more simplistic description than overly flowery.
Yes, I would’ve rather the book focus more on how Cath deals with family, college, social anxiety rather than romance. I was disappointed by how much the 2nd half focused on that,but that’s a personal preference. Many people will enjoy it.
This is a rare read for me, but I’m glad I picked it up. It’s one of those books that, when you finish, you feel a little different.
If you don’t usually read this genre, (like me), if you prefer sci fi, post apocalyptic ect, and, also if you’re someone whose social life is online, I still recommend you read this.
