Book Review: All the Bright Places
by Jennifer Niven
This has been one helluva emotional roller coaster for me. Another one after I’ve read Slammed by Colleen Hoover last year. I was happy, hopeful, sad, and broken as I read along from start to finish.
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven have so much negativity in it and each negativity comes to an equivalent positivity. This book is about hope and despair, it’s about living and dying all mixed up into this simple yet beautifully crafted story. I never thought I get hooked… or get emotionally damaged at the same time.
It is a story about a girl named Violet who was saved by a teenage nobody called Finch who was compelled by death or the different ways to take his own life.
“I bring it up to let you know that this is the way I feel right now.
Like Pluto and Jupiter are aligned with the Earth
And I’m floating.
― All the Bright Places, Jennifer Niven
I really want to give you a summary of the story, just like I’m always doing with my previous review, I want to describe how Violet and Finch met, how they end up together, how they became best of friends, how they fell in love, about their marvelous field trip or “wanderings” but I really feel that I won’t give justice to this book. You must read it to experience it all.
I like the characters so much, they felt real to me, not just fictional characters. Their feelings, each action to events… are real. I can relate to them in all different kinds of ways. I understand why Violet slowly fell in love with Finch, his character is so beautiful. He is very smart and witty, they both are, and their chemistry is a blast! He always says the right thing to say, he always knows what to do ( when he is with Violet…) He is super fun and a perfect gentleman.
I think I’ve got a map in my car that wants to be used, and I think there are places we can go that need to be seen. Maybe no one else will ever visit them and appreciate them or take the time to think they’re important, but maybe even the smallest places mean something. And if not, they can mean something to us.
-Finch, All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven.
Aside from the story, I was really captivated by how this book contains the most inspiring quotes I ever read. It was truly a life-changing experience for me.
Your hope lies in accepting your life as it now lies before you, forever change. If you can do that, that peace you seek will follow.
– Violet, All the Bright Place by Jennifer Niven.
It shatters me into tiny pieces, and for
a moment or two an hour or two, I felt what Violet felt in the end.
