Review: All the Bright Places

All the Bright PlacesAll the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’ve given myself to reflect on this book. I don’t know if I really want to go into an in-depth review…

MY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS BOOK:
I listened to 7/9 parts of an audiobook, then had to wait three weeks for somebody to return it from the library. I forgot a lot of plot points within that time, so I don’t think I received the optimal meaning from this book– however, overall, I enjoyed it. The writing is suuuuper pretentious. But you (hopefully) get used to it by the end.

CHARACTERS/DYNAMICS
You know what??? I don’t want to spoil it for you guys. Just know you’ll love them both and their dynamic is brilliant.

PLOT:
Kinda boring, but you’re here for the plot.

STRUCTURE:
There wasn’t anything too original about this book’s structure, but it was still notably soothing to read. I like how this book was formed 😀

THEMES:
Suicide, depression, bulimia, bullying, coming-0f-age identity formation, family relationships…

PASSAGES:
Too many to quote.

THE ENDING:
This book had a realistic ending like Me Before You which I greatly appreciated. And it made me cry.
