Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him.
Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister’s recent death.
When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself—a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who’s not such a freak after all. And it’s only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink.
Heyy guys, that above is gotten from goodreads abt the book. So yea, gonna be writing what I felt abt the book.
I got drawn to this book first because of its suicide theme, there are not many out there that will even write about it. Suicide is like kinda of a dark serious kind of theme not many want to talk about.
This book also reminds me of The Fault In Our Stars. Suicide to cancer and Violet and Finch to Hazel and Augustus. The story to me is really bittersweet. I totally can relate to Finch fascinations with death as I myself am fascinated by it haha. At the same time, I can also relate to grief due to a loss of a loved one. Throughout this book, there are parts where I teared and also smiled a lot to myself at how sweet it was haha.Though the ending was kinda sad for me.
