“I have hated words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right.”
I don’t know how my review can do justice with this uniquely beautiful book. It is not going to be a long review because I am short of words to define how powerful this book was. I expected it to be good but this much wonderful, No I hadn’t.
This is the type of book which makes you feel each and every emotion, One line your heart is full of sadness next line you are giggling…I must say Death is my one of the most favourite narrator and got a serious sense of humour 😂
“The only thing worse than a boy who hates you: a boy that loves you.”
I am still astonished how easily author defines each and every character. Everyone is different from another bust justifiable. The most interesting thing about this book is every character is grey, No one is an angle. Still, you love some and dislike others.
Rudy, Liesel and Max are my most favourite ❤
“It kills me sometimes, how people die.”
The flow of the story, the setting, writing, characters, ending, the narrator, text format, the way chapters were named, Everything was so Perfect.
I’ll recommend it to each and everyone again and again.
“I am haunted by humans.”
