It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What a wonderful book. First things first ... the cover is WOW! Such a beautiful cover.
Ok, now on to the book. It's so good. Just a fantastic read that explores a very personal issue with depth and honesty. I recommend that you read as little as possible about this book because I think it's better to come in with little knowledge about the plot.
Here's what you need to know ... it's a love story but SO MUCH MORE. It explores relationships in ways that aren't always easy but always feel real. I think this novel will make us think about our assumptions and our initial reactions about relationships in very important ways.
The characters are so well done, the plotting is quite good, and the story itself builds perfectly to the last page. It's a tale of strength, growth and intimacy. It's about making the right decision even when it kills you to make it. This is a story for everyone.
This is one of the best novels covering this topic, in my opinion. It explores that things in life are often grey - that black and white is rarely reality. I think it does this with nuance and respect.
I highly recommend it ... it's a wonderful story that gives you perspective and helps you understand how to look beyond the obvious.
