I came to this book open to loving it, but it seems I‘m in the “nope” camp. The themes are worth exploring, and I feel for the author; the execution was just too young for me. It felt trite and shallow where I wanted depth and insight.

I‘m curious about the author‘s second book, though. It‘d be interesting to see if her voice has changed as she‘s gotten older.

I love how the book takes its time adding the characters. First the mole shows up, then the fox, and finally the horse. Almost every line of the horse had me in tears; so relatable and exactly what I needed to hear. This is a book you can read from the beginning or start anywhere in the middle and you‘d still get a beautiful deep thought. It‘s nice and simple enough to share with children as adults alike. The sketches are gorgeous additions, too

quite good - felt geopolitical subtly. Probably a niche read for people interested in terrorism, humanity, and conflict resolution.

“Is your glass half empty or half full?” Asked the mole. “I think I‘m grateful to have a glass,” said the boy. Whoa; perspective change

“What is the bravest thing you‘ve ever said?” Asked the boy. “Help”, said the horse Once again something every child needs to know and adults always forget

This is so sweet. So simple. Everyone should know how to take a moment to ground themselves when they get anxious.

Can‘t believe I forgot about this book! Won Barnes and Nobles book of the year, so that‘s exciting to hear as this book is supposedly liken to a children‘s book about friendship. Sounds like a book we all need to start 2020. Cannot wait

Argh! #unpopularopinion time... I finished it for a book club otherwise would have dnf‘d. I didn‘t care about any of the characters. The dude is married with a kid and disappears...to go be with a girl from his past? The premise didn‘t work for me. The all knowing narrator didn‘t work for me either. The story itself was, well, boring. Lots of eye rolling. I am reading another book with a blind MC which is a million times better.

BarbaraBB Hmm. I had it stacked but do have my doubts now. #unstacked 7h
Tracyantoon @BarbaraBB it has high ratings here and on goodreads but the “epic love story” was way too cheesy for me and just not well written in my humble opinion. I felt like I was being told the story and not shown the story. Lots of gripes about it. Book club should be interesting. 😀 Btw, your pics of Oman are gorgeous! ☀️🐫🌵🌴 7h
BarbaraBB Thanks! Three more days to go! I am glad you mentioned ‘cheesy‘. Now I know I did right by unstacking 😀😘 6h
