Those are the famous words of Ernest Hemingway imprinted on the first page of Jennifer Niven’s book: All the bright places. This book to me is amazing in every single way, from the deep intense message it gives to just the simple style of writing. Therefore I’d like to urge you to go out and get your hands on this book, you won’t regret it, I haven’t at least. Though I’d like to give a warning as well, this book is heavy with themes such as suicide, the loss of those dear to us and feeling alone while everyone around you goes about their lives, so it is not for the faint of heart. Those who wish to brave through this cloud of more depressing themes though will find one of the most beautiful stories ever written.
If you have read the book, i’d love to know what you think of it!
