Book Review: This Book Will Save Your Life by A.M. Homes
My rating: 4 stars
I like the idea that Richard’s sudden and immense pain could represent the death of his ordered and carefully constructed life. The opening up and embracing of new experiences and people became a rebirth into a new life. I guess the more rigidly we try to control life, the more we step away from its messiness, forgetting that in that very messiness lies the intensity and emotion of life itself.
This is the second A.M Homes book I’ve read and I like her ability to observe humans in minute detail; cataloguing the bizarre but retaining the humour. The characters can be very odd but still likeable.
Maybe this book CAN save your life if you take it as a reminder to embrace change, embrace the imperfect and keep yourself open to new experiences!
