5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I’ve read in a long time!
By MissyT on 30 August 2021
I connected with the storyline so much, perhaps being in my late 30s and at a point in my own life where it’s easy wonder about life decisions, when thoughts of what’s ifs, should haves or ‘who knows what might have happened’ continually linger. But it’s true - the grass isn’t always greener!

I love the premise of this story and the style of writing hooked me right in from page 1. Easy to read, and kept me guessing and wondering where the story might go.

Great lessons to learn here - key messages being, no matter what we choose to do in life, happiness isn’t a complete end state. It’s all the little things - the ups/downs of life that make up a complete life. The love we give and receive, with an open heart and change of perspective. How all of our actions will always have a reaction but there’s comfort in the fact that, where we are is okay, it will never be perfect and you have the power to make it what you want. Don’t take life for granted, relationships included. Definitely a powerful read and look inside the struggle of loneliness, connection and mental health. Something I think, the world can definitely relate to.

Can’t wait to see how they turn this one into a movie. You can see it all play out in your head. Great escape.

5 out of 5! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

5.0 out of 5 stars Life changing. Powerful. Amazing. Beautiful. Uplifting. A must read.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 August 2020
I don't think I can do this book/review enough justice but I'm going to give it my best shot... If there is one book I would urge you and shout at you to buy it would be this on. Go do it. Treat yourself You will not regret it. I promise. This is going straight into my top twenty of the year reads. I've awarded it five stars and I'd award more if I could! How do I start?

I must admit it's not what I expected at all. But I feel it was just what I needed right now honestly. This book is going to be huge. This book for me was amazing, outstanding, life changing, powerful and thought provoking. Honestly have you ever felt so low you wanted to die? Then this book is for you. It will change your whole perspective on life. It has for me. It's taught me A LOT of life lessons and how I see my life. I actually have fallen in love with this book and I don't say that lightly.

I don't want to ruin this for anyone but if you could view every possible outcome of your life would you? Would you ever be happy? Just wow. It's taught me to open my eyes, appreciate what I have not what I want. Life is life. Life is beautiful. I loved it all. I devoured it in a day. Beautifully told. An easy read for me done in a day but one I felt I NEEDED to read right at this moment in my life. Now this is my review others may feel differently about this book and some may hate it. But I cant explain how much I loved, enjoyed and needed this book. One I can always go back too when I'm feeling low. Uplifting.

So thank you Matt. Absolutely brilliant. Grateful. It's really made me think and I miss it already. Perfection.
