I love Sarah Winman‘s writing. But oh, this one is sad.

Chelsea.Poole I read this earlier this year. Yes, it is very sad but it has really stayed with me. 💔 2d

Read this short book (under 200 pages) in one sitting. It‘s a love story, a beautiful story, about Ellis and Michael and Annie. The writing is magnificent and reading this book will enrich your life. Make time for this magical little book.

Just gorgeous writing - like everyone else, I was absolutely captivated by this beautiful gentle story about how three very ordinary people found and lost and found each other (in a way) again. I'm planning on buying copies as gifts for my MIL and a few of the other literary fiction fans in my life. This one's a keeper.

Amazing how much this author accomplished with so few words. Ellis, Michael, and Annie have a special connection that is revealed in scenes, many remembered by characters when thinking back to formative years and experiences. Kind of how real life is, and that made this book all the more impactful for me. So much grief though, so beware.

TheLudicReader I loved this spare novel. 5mo

Love is not strong enough for how I feel about this book. Beautifully written, artful, and quietly heart wrenching. A story about love, relationships, and loss that‘s left me with a hole in my heart and a #bookhangover like I haven‘t had in a long time. 💛

I love the way Winman writes about longing and loss. The language is simple yet lyrical and beautiful. The book explores different types of love/relationships - first love, friendship, marriage. Winman also writes about the AIDS epidemic. The first part that centers around Ellis drew me in but I felt less connected to Michael and Annie. It‘s 3 out of 5 stars for me.

2017, Paris, France, After an exhausting nine hour flight, I reach my hotel and at the reception desk stands a really handsome guy, one whom I'm smitten by almost immediately. It was really difficult keeping a straight face while filling out the various forms because I couldn't help but steal a glance of him ❤️ (continued in comments)

nathandrake1997 ....And after that, he offered to make us croissants which were as delicious as the man who made them ❤️? After a tiring day of being a tourist, it was his smile that used to greet me at the hotel's entrance and all the exhaustion used to make a graceful exit from my bones. On the day we were about to leave, he wished us a safe flight and all I could think was "Wish you were my co-passenger" ❤️..... 10mo
nathandrake1997 ..... I randomly thought about him all these years later while hugging my tear-stained copy of Sarah Winman's exquisite TIN MAN. The sparse, minimalist prose conveys volumes about love, grief or rather, the aftermath of grief.... 10mo
nathandrake1997 ....A wedding sequence where Winman instead chooses to focus on a bunch of tourists finding the tombstone of a long dead author is one of the many clever juxtapositions of life and death in the book. Another instance would be about how Ellis learns where Michael was all these years before reuniting with him after stumbling upon a notebook that Michael wrote during those tumultuous years, stumbling upon that notebook after Michael has passed away.. 10mo

nathandrake1997 ....Isn't love in long term an act of anticipating grief? We make vows and promises about spending a lifetime with our significant other, but, our lifetime or theirs, its always one or the other, rarely both in unison. Those aren't questions we contemplate when we get into a relationship with someone because.... 10mo
nathandrake1997 ....how morbid would that be. But once fate makes its choice, it is that morbidity which envelops us like an all consuming winter-chill, sending shivers down our spine.... 10mo
nathandrake1997 ....This post has travelled quite a way hasn't it? Beginning from a meet-cute infatuation to eventually landing up at questions and thoughts pertaining to the mortality of love.....I know its all over the place, but isn't our headspace as well when we fall in love? Or when we have to process the fact that inspite of innumerable vows and promises, "forever" isn't actually......"forever"? 10mo

Poignant, thought-provoking, heartbreaking, tear-jerking, soul-restoring & beautifully written, this book is a thing of joy. The complexity of the relationship between the 3 main characters unfurls slowly & seductively & I was entranced. Loved all the oblique Wizard of Oz references, loved Michael's section, a snapshot of the 80s AIDS epidemic, loved the ending in France, loved it all. So sad, but also weirdly uplifting. Gosh, what a book!

Postal book club strikes again... I went in to this tiny book knowing nothing about it, was promptly completely absorbed in the beautiful storytelling, was totally blindsided by the direction the story took, and was finally stunned by a perfect ending.

Never have I seen a more apt blurb on a book cover. I am all astonishment.

Not going to talk about what happens in this book—everyone should experience it for themselves. ❤️

5🌟 A story about love in all forms, grief, and friendship. Winman's storytelling was superb! Slowly and nonchalantly showing us these characters and their layers, their longing and love for each other. I loved them all by the end. The whole book was so serene and beautifully done. Her prose are steadfast and wistful. The narration in the second half was so raw, like an open wound. This left me heartbroken but content at the same time.

"Make peace with it, my boy. Make your peace."

I had no idea how much I needed this book. In such a small package, Winman has not only perfectly personified grief, but reframed it entirely into something beautiful and hopeful. What a lovely short read for a quiet Friday night. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Well it took me about 5 hours, but I finalized my #JuneTBR for the #ReadYourSign event. I am a very stereotypical Scorpio🦂♏️, but after reading more into it I found my rising sign is Leo🦁♌️ and I have an Aries ♈️ moon sign. After a bit of research, I can relate to the Leo description as well, so I‘ve decided to attempt to check off all 15 prompts for both signs. Which I‘m hoping I can do with these 15 books 😉

@Meaw_catlady

Meaw_catlady Woah good choices! I‘m gonna look through my TBR when I get off work and decide how many I can realistically read in the time haha ! 🖤♎️ 3y
Clwojick @Meaw_catlady Good luck! It was surprisingly easy to make some books fit multiple prompts once I decided that I was going to attempt two signs. Hopefully you can find some good ones too! 3y
