what i liked: unlike the other, where the sentences appealed more than the story did, in this novel, i wasn’t quite as touched by the word choices. but the story is sweeter.
remembering adam would be like losing him all over again, and i’m not sure that i can bear that on top of everything else (p. 181).
i’m feeling not just the physical pain, but all that i have lost, and it is profound and catastrophic and will leave a crater in me that nothing will ever fill (p. 195).
there were a few others here and there, but none so strong that i felt compelled to mark the page so that i could put them here.
then again, i showed yall quite a few from the second book, and maybe i’m just not feeling as generous this time around.
what sucked: there’s a spot where the story sort of lulls, but that’s all i’ve got, really.
having said all that: of the three forman books i’ve read, i like this one the best. also, i’m glad i read adam’s tale first. makes me like him more here for having done that. makes me like mia more, too.
