Favourite Quote: â??Slow motion, I think decidedly. He can make things happen in slow motion. The rest of the room grows blurry while Chris stays sharply in focus.â??
Jessica Park is quickly becoming one of my favourite authors! Thereâ??s just something so beautiful and real about her writing that I just canâ??t get enough! Just like her previous novel Flat-Out Love, Left Drowning recieves a 5/5 stars from me!
Letâ??s start with the plot, I find it really hard to like and relate to character-driven novels but Jessicaâ??s Parks books just do it for me! Even though there is a loose plot (itâ??s mostly about the characters developing) I still really enjoyed it! However just like Flat-Out Matt, I guessed the main twist straight away but that never took my love for the plot away! All the story arcs are heartbreaking but sometimes you just need a good heartbreaker! Though I have to admit, I never cried at all in this so unlike Flat-Out Matt haha!
Onto the characters who just made this entire book! First thereâ??s Blythe who I struggled to connect with in the first few chapters though I understant why she was doing what she was doing! But after that she really grew on me with her kind, caring personality. Then thereâ??s Chris who was just my favourite, loved him so much! He was so broken that I felt broken along with him. He was strong, caring, selfless, honourable and so much more, the list is endless! And him and Blythe together? I thought it was kind of insta-love but that didnâ??t really bother me because of all their history, itâ??s the kind of love we all want. That love that is forever, that is fate, that proves soulmates exist. This relationship is one of my favourite ever! So real and heartbreaking!
As for the other characters, there were all brilliant and broken! Sabin, Estelle, Eric and James were all damanged in their own ways but they were fighting through it and they made the book that more touching and realistic! Liked them all a lot!
Overall this book is just touching and wonderful at the same time! Cannot recommend this enough! Cannot wait to read Jessica Parkâ??s future books!show more
