Recenzie All the bright places by Jennifer Niven

The Fault in Our Stars meets Eleanor and Park. All the Bright Places is a compelling and beautiful story about a girl who learns to live from a boy who intends to die. 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.
How far will Violet go to save the boy she has come to love? An intense, gripping YA novel, perfect for fans of John Green, Jay Asher, Rainbow Rowell, Gayle Forman and Jenny Downham.

My opinion:

Ei, si am facut-o si pe asta. Voiam de ceva timp sa citesc cartea asta, mai ales ca my bff aka sis m-a batut la cap ca trebuie sa o citim. Asa ca am devenit si eu super hipe si am cumparat-o si doar acum am reusit sa ma apuc de ea. Dar nu-i problema. Mai bine mai tarziu decat niciodata, nu?

Stiu ca cartea asta are multa valva in jurul ei, si poate ca prea multa, as zice eu. Nu e o super carte. Insa se ocupa cu niste probleme, cu care multa lume le infunta zi de zi. Ei insisi, sau persoanele din jurul lor, si anume suicidul.
Cartea sta la baza unor fapte reale. Ceea ce o face mult mai realistica si sa fii mult mai intrigat de ea.
Parerea mea e ca se ocupa mai mult de problema asta decat de latura dragostei. Ceea ce e super. Insa, daca exista mai multa implicare si in aspectul iubirii, cartea era pentru mine, cartea anului 2015. Well, nu le poti avea pe toate.

Povestea celor doi te intriga, mai ales daca citesti descrierea, insa iti ofera si un mare spoiler in ceea ce priveste cartea. Dar cum am spus. Cartea asta e menita sa spuna povestea cuiva, relitatea cuiva, nu sa o indulceasca cu fericirea pana la adanci batraneti.
Cu siguranta ii lipseste ceva povestii, in opinia mea. Pentru ca nu am putut sa ma pierd asa de mult cum mi-as fi dorit. Problema cu care m-am confruntat eu, si cred ca multa lume, este faptul ca, cartea, reprezinta o realitate, ceea ce bine pana intr-un punct. Orice carte este menita sa ne ofere o lectie, atat noua, cat si autoriilor sa se descarce de sentimentele pe care acestea le au si nu au cui, sau cred ca nu au cui sa se confezeze. Insa, noi cititorii, citim carti pentru ca vrem sa scapam de acesta realitate. Dorim un strop de fictiune in orice carte. Si poate ca asta i-a lipsit cartii. Acel strop de nerealitate sper care tanjim toti.
Personajele au fost extrem de bine construite. Extrem de bine gandite, insa asa fel incat la final nu ai urat pe nimeni chiar daca voiai. Personajele reprezinta realitatea cartii si nu imprejurimile, intamplarile. Toate intamplarile sunt bazate pe caracterul fiecarui personaj. Chiar daca scena de la finalul cartii mi s-a parut putin trasa de coada si facandu-ma sa ma intreb de ce asa si nu invers, dupa o scurta perioada de gandire, mi-am dat seama ca asta e realitatea. Asta se intampla cu o persoana inzestrata de pura realitate si caracter. In acest caz, nu autorul a avut controlul asupra personajului, ci personajul asupra foi de hartie.

Mi-a placut conceptul cartii, si felul cum acesta a fost structurata, de la coperta, la capitole, la tot. Un plus ce il are cartea asta si pentru care a primit din parte mea 3 stele, e faptul ca la un moment dat, cei doi vorbesc pe facebook, insa nu o conversatie tipica, ci vorbesc prin citate. Ceea ce mi s-a parut pur si simplu adorabil ci cred ca noi cititorii ar trebui sa facem asta cu alti cititori, prieteni sau necunoscuti zi de zi.
Nu mi-a placut povestea asta de mult cum as fi dorit, insa asta e partea a doua. Cum am spus, e interesanta si chiar toti ar trebui sa o incercati. Poate, pe multi dintre voi o sa va surprinda, sau poate o sa va faca sa intelegeti anumite lucruri.
Dar, sa nu va asteptati la o poveste de dragoste tipic adolescentina. Sa va asteptati la o poveste in care el e in stare sa ii salveze viata ei cu costul vietii lui. Pur si simplu REALITATEA.

Cartea va aparea in curand la EDITURA TREI.

Favorite quotes:

„ The world breaks everyone, and afterward, many are strong at the broken places.”

„The thing is, there are good days and bad days.”

„So not today, because she smiled at me.”

„I feel we can’t go through another of those terrible times.”

„Arrange whatever pieces come your way.”

„I am rooted, but i flow.”

„Most nights, these are Songs That Will Change the World because they are that good and that deep and that damn amazing. But tonight I’m telling myself I don’t have anything in common with this Violet girl, no mstter how much I want to, and asking myself if the words between us were really that hot or if maybe it was just me imagining, me in overdrive for a girl I barely know, all because she’s the firt person I’ve met who seems to speak my language. A few words of it anyway.”

„If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger.”

“You are all the colors in one, at full brightness.”

“You deserve better. I can’t promise you I’ll stay around, not because I don’t want to. It’s hard to explain. I’m a fuckup. I’m broken, and no one can fix it. I’ve tried. I’m still trying. I can’t love anyone because it’s not fair to anyone who loves me back. I’ll never hurt you, not like I want to hurt Roamer. But I can’t promise I won’t pick you apart, piece by piece, until you’re in a thousand pieces, just like me. You should know what you’re getting into before getting involved.”

“What if life could be this way? Only the happy parts, none of the terrible, not even the mildly unpleasant. What if we could just cut out the bad and keep the good?”

“The thing I realize is, that it's not what you take, it's what you leave.”

“We do not remember days, we remember moments.”
