The story was missing something
“All the bright places” is a book about suicide and mental illness: Finch is a kid who thinks a lot about suicide and which way to die and I’ve felt really connected with him in so many levels (but my personal life is a story for another time); Violet lost his sister in a car accident and she feels guilty for that, she is depressed and tries to kill herself in the first chapter even if it really wasn’t her willing. Finch saves her.
What I think is wrong with this book is the love-story. I feel like the author is forcing me to like this relationship, but all I want to do is knowing more about Finch’s life and especially is mind. I really didn’t like how his story ended. It actually pissed me off (A LOT). And I won’t say anymore words in order to not spoil the ending to anyone who hasn’t read the book.
The book is really well-written and I think Jennifer Niven is a talent author, but this story is definitely missing a lot. I feel so bad for not liking this book. REALLY. I read so MANY-MANY-MANY good reviews about it.
I really was thinking SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
