I received a free copy for an honest review
This book was making me depressed.
But seriously, I'm speechless.
Reading this book was like listening to a TED speech. I can really connect to it in some ways. It tells stuff, logic and human nature that we all know, but none of us ever mentions. It uses stories as metaphors to connect with the reader, and give me hopes for survival. For anyone who is depressed - and let's face it, who isn't depressed at least once in their lives. I feel like this can be an inspiration book for you to hold on to and read, and bring back hope in your life when it seems like there is none.
I really like how every chapter is only at most 2 to 3 pages long, and each chapter is like a short story. It touched me, it really does.
There really isn't' much to say about this book; not like words can describe how this book touched me and how wonderful and connectable the writing was. This book is amazing, a book that made me feel, and I would hold on to it and use it to make me have hope again when I'm depressed. Wonderful piece of art, I am so glad I read it. Totally and absolutely earned itself five stars. I suggest this book to anyone who is getting tough in life, may this book show you how hope still exists.
