We are all alone, trapped in these bodies and our own minds, and whatever company we have in this life is only fleeting and superficial.
I’m pretty cautious when it comes to contemporary works. Not because this genre is bad but because it’s normally just not my kind of book. Nonetheless I’ve read some works and when I stumbled over All The Bright Places, I wasn’t quite sure whether to read it or not. Also there was a lot of hype concerning the book which also made me think about reading it. The reviews I saw were mixed but since the better ones seemed to be predominant I gave it a try. The book was often compared to The Fault In Our Stars by John Green – this work is even mentioned on the edition I own – and I have to agree considering some points. From time to time it felt like a re-read BUT I still enjoyed reading All The Bright Places and I want to tell you why.
