Book: All the Bright Places

Author: Jennifer Niven

Plot: When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the ‘natural wonders’ of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself – a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who’s not such a freak after all. And it’s only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink.

Rating: 5 / 5 stars

Truly bright and terrific

I am in love with this book for making me fall in love with literature all over again and reminding me the joy of reading. Once in a while you stumble upon a book that makes you realize as to why we all have that fire in us that ignites high on seeing a book and for me this book is one of them. Its not that the book is so remarkable that you would want to build an altar for it. No it’s the fact that while reading the book, it subtly makes us fall in love with the habit of reading, making us think about books altogether and that lies in the magic of the theme and narration of this book

All the bright places is definitely going into my favourite book section because I had such an amazing time reading the book. One of the best things that you need to watch out is the language which is very plain and simple but none of the things that it say is plain but goes into various layers and that is the beauty of the book. Touching upon a whole lot of deeper facts with such simplicity

It is one of the best examples of realistic fictions. Nothing is exaggerated or downplayed but in moderation and gentle touch, the author has opened up a lot of truths and reflections of our modern world.

A beautiful theme, story, language and an impressive flow makes this a really good read but one has to keep in mind that this is not your adrenaline hyped or spiced up fiction, but a very realistic one and has its own charm.
