So loved it
I was excited for this book as soon as I saw the premise. Its sounded really interesting and for sure caught my eye. As soon as I could, I grabbed the audio. It wasn't long before I was in love with the story and the main character. The story was so new and different than anything I have read and I adored this book. A very sweet romance.
Long story short :
A is just a soul. Not male not female just is. A wakes up in a new body everyday where A will live one day as that person. A will get to experience that person's life, access their memories, and try real hard not to interrupt that particular life. This is a way for A to experience being human. A doesn't know if there are any others and doesn't know why it happens. It just does. A ends up in Justin's body and that is when everything becomes real because A falls in love with Justin's girl. Now A does everything possible to stay in Rhiannon's life, even if it is in multiple different bodies.
My thoughts :
The concept of this book really blew me away. I loved it! It was thrilling and sad. The creativity and emotions put into this story just amazed me.
The writing was beautiful, the tone was just perfect, and the main character was extremely lovable. While reading this book, I was useless to anything else going on in my life. I was involved 100 percent throughout the entire book.
The love story of this book was just so raw, built upon nothing but emotion from knowing someone entirely. My heart melted with every moment A was with Rhiannon. A loved her so much and wanted nothing more than for Rhiannon to be happy and then for A to be able to apart of her life. The things that A would do just be close to her, talk to her, be with her, and it was always on a time limit.
I fell in love with both characters. A was sweet, lovable, and just well A. It's hard to really go into A. A was just wonderful and learned to deal with the crazy life A lived. A would move heaven and earth for Rhiannon. Rhiannon was pretty awesome herself. She was in a bad relationship when A came along and was very introverted and a real people pleaser. She would do anything Justin wanted and always put herself last. She allowed Justin to use her and treat her like crap. She didn't know any better until A came along and showed her what love, friendship, and selfishness was all about. She grew to like herself again, to be happy with her life, and to be secure in herself.
The story really was beautiful. The ending killed me but I would reread it again.
I really want to mention the narrator on this particular book. I think the perfect narrator was established for this reading. It has to be very difficult to find a narrator when the main character is neither male nor female. This narrator pulled if off because I could see the main character in whichever body they were in, male when it needed to be and female when it needed to be,
In the end: by Jennifer McDaid
Favourite Quote = "Ultimately the universe doesn't care about us. Time doesn't care about us. That's why we have to care about each other."
The only thing I can say that annoyed me about this book was the insta-love. Although it was kind of one-sided but still not the point, insta-love just shouldn't exist!
Onto the good points, starting with the plot. I thought it was steady-paced which was good it helped you enjoy the characters and other aspects of the book instead of just the plot. It was very a unique plot and don't think I'll ever read anything like it again. I'll admit I was worried the author would take the easy road out when it came to the ending, making everything work out perfectly but David Levithan delivered a very satisfying ending for me personally, it was open ended and I really liked that.
Let's talk characters, first there's our main character A who I liked, didn't love because of the insta-love and some of the choices he made were very selfish. But overall I liked his perspective and I sympathised with him. Our other main character was Rhiannon who I really liked. She was very realistic and down to earth, I could easily relate to her. The relationship between both characters was sweet but by the end of the book I was happy with how the relationship turned out because it was the only possible solution.
The part of the book that I enjoyed most was all the different lives that A lived. I loved all the descriptions of everyone's different families, friends, routines. Some of them were difficult like drug addicts, mental disorders, etc and credit to David Levithan for including hard lives like this and making the book realistic.
Overall I recommend this book and gave it 4/5 stars, probably would've been 5 if it hadn't been for the insta-love! by Moodyno1
