Here is a read that I could not put down! Not only was it an incredible story, it helped me to see different sides of disability. Great love story but have Kleenex handy!
I can't get over this book. I felt emotions that I'm not used to. I can't get enough of this book. I have read it twice and I will be purchasing all of Jo Jo Moyes books.
I cried so hard at the end of this book. It was by far one of the best books I have read. I definitely recommend it to everyone who likes romantic, love story type books.
This was a great book. It took my several chapters to get into it, but once I did, I couldn't put it down. It's a great love story that isn't traditional, and somewhat controversial. Grab some tissues for the ending!!
I really enjoyed this book! It makes you wonder how you would react in the same situations as the main characters. It also makes you question should you be in control of you're own death if you're terminally ill.
The book felt like an assignment for class I didn't really want to continue reading it but I did and I felt like I could predict the ending midway through the book
This was a great book. A very interesting and different subject matter for a romance novel. It kept my interest and would make for a great beach or vacation read.
Quick and easy read, I finished this in 3 days. This book made me both laugh and cry. Its a book that you know the ending too, however still have to finish it. I prefer the book over the movie.
I listened to the audiobook version, and loved it. The characters are well developed so you start to feel many of the emotions that they do. I think it's a great book for a group discussion.
Loved this story although it's heart breaking it's beautiful in its own way. It's a love story that is tragic but powerful. Can't wait to read the second book!
