(from the movie)
Oh gosh, It’s one of those reviews where I can’t get my thoughts together because I still don’t know how to feel about it! I know that I loved it and whatever I’m thinking is positive for sure…
So if you didn’t know, Where Rainbows End is written in emails, texts, chatting online and mails. At first that kind of put me off because it’s just annoying to read emails for 500 pages BUT let me tell you why it was good:
- This makes you read the book much MUCH faster than normal, I read about 80 pages in one go
- It makes it SO REALISTIC and enjoyable in a weird way. I literally felt like I had hacked into someones phone, emails and all that stuff and was stalking them full-on…It literally feels like your reading the texts between two (or few) people for a very long time haha
I immediately got engaged in the story and got used to this style of writing. I absolutely loved this idea, I think it was a clever way to get you emotionally connected to the characters and what was happening in their lives which brings me onto the FEELS.
So if you don’t know, Cecelia Ahern has also written ‘P.S. I Love You’ and if you didn’t know it is a very depressing story. I actually haven’t read it, I just watched the movie and it made me depressed for days so when I found out she wrote it, I immediately got scared because what if she made this book depressing as well. As you read the book, you just wish that nothing horrible happens to them throughout the story and especially towards the end. I’m not going to tell you how I feel about the end, you just need to read and see for yourself *insert evil smile here*
But what I can tell you is that you feel like your on a roller coster of emotions and you just go up up up and then suddenly drop down which makes sense because not everything in life is always good and happy (I know, deep right?)
This is how the book is mostly written like haha :
TO Rosie and Alex
SUBJECT Stop being so blind! urghhh…
I no that you guys are too blind to see but you are perfect for each other…WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?! Please get together or I might just throw myself out of the window before my heart explodes.
Love, almost everyone while reading the book xxxxx
In conclusion I really recommend it to everyone basically. It’s funny, cute, heart-warming, heart-breaking at some points and just amazing overall! You get to see Alex and Rosie grow up together (from age 7 to old (not gonna saaay) ) and it’s just so nice to see this transition on paper.
I’m going to put the trailer of the movie here because why not (don’t worry it won’t spoil you, all of those happen in the first 10 pages):
Awwwww melts my heart every time
