Book Review: All The Bright Places

ATBPUrgh, writer’s envy is a terrible thing.  And I felt it on basically every other page, if not more, of this book.  There’s just so much I love about the surprising and original writing.  And the characters are just so vividly drawn, not just Violet and the amazing Finch, but so so many others as well – their families, their school friends, even the bit parts are so solidly depicted.  The love story is so well paced as well, so compelling.  Literally could NOT put it down.  I think this is one of the better, more relatable and sensitive depictions of mental health issues I’ve seen, as well as giving a fresh, original and realistic take on it.  Totally jealous, and can’t wait for the movie.
