The theme of colours was one that the author used to the full, with Janica describing so many different things in terms of the exact nuance of colour she perceived them to be. It was a unique approach, and one that made me sit up and think, as the author uses it to encompass so many of life’s experiences such as love, illness, friendship, relationship issues, death, and family bonds.
I just loved this novel, and I can’t end this review without mentioning the translator as well, who did a wonderful job of making the book feel that it had been written in English to start with. I really hope that she and Noa Walker team up to bring us more, as I was disappointed to discover that this is the author’s only work currently available in English.
While walking her dog, she she stops a man about to take his own life. Her father is a psychologist so she enlists his help to help Steffan come to terms with his depression. She meets his brother Thomas who appears to be the exact opposite of Janica. Very stern and serious and reserved with his emotions. Over time Janica and Thomas fall head over heels in love but then tragedy strikes and Janica is given some gut wrenching news about her health.
This is a very emotional book that deals with heavy topics like the deaths of poorly children, the burden of being responsible for the death of an innocent child and facing your own death in the face knowing your time is coming to an end.
Expect to shed lots of tears but also feel the vibrancy of a person like Janica who embraces life whole heartedly and lives every second like its her last.
If you are into weepy stories this is definitely the one for you.
