I 1000% recommend this book
Reviewed in Canada on July 7, 2020
It is 1:15 in the morning and I just finished reading this book. It was recommended in a video I saw on YouTube and decided to give a try. It wasn’t really intriguing in the beginning but I pushed myself to read into a few chapters and I couldn’t drop it. It is a long read (longer than I’ve read in a few years) but it is TOTALLY worth it. I saw a review saying it goes into a lot of details but I believe the details ate necessary. They do not obstruct the flow of the reader but serve to give a little more insight to the characters. The fact that the story is based on a true story makes it a million times sadder. I 1000% recommend reading this book. There are several life lessons in it and one thing it would teach you is to not judge others.
Based on this book, I’d say Hanya Yanagihara is a really good writer. To find a book that would make me feel this much would probably be a challenge.
I envy those reading A Little Life for the first time.
