This is probably one of the most heartbreaking books I've read in my whole life. I didn't expect it to be like this.
It was very confusing at the begining, the writing style is unique and I read it in English (which is not my first language) so I had a hard time trying to figure out what Jandy Nelson was saying. But then I started to get used to the writing and everything made sense.
It has two points of view, Noah's and Jude's, the main characters. I loved Noah so much, I related with him since the very begining and got attached to him until the end. He felt very real to me, all his feelings and thoughts. Jude was a less interesting point of view for me, but I have to say her character grows as the story goes on so it gets better at the end.
The characters deal with a lot of problems through the book, so the life-lessons and beautiful messages are everywhere, as well as emotions and feelings.
Another aspect I loved was how nature was so important to the story and to some characters. Metaphores were incredibly accurate.
You can feel more or less attached to the plot or the characters, but I'm sure everyone will feel something while reading this book, and that's what we readers want, isn't it?
