The opposite of a love story
Reviewed in the United States on February 9, 2019
Whoa...I have to be honest. I hadn’t heard of of this series until I saw the preview for the movie. I was so intrigued by the trailer I immediately downloaded all 5 books in the series. I read them 4 days. I couldn’t stop. Like, I tried to stop and I just couldn’t. I just finished the last one. Just now, while sitting the bathtub while the kids are out. I’m sobbing. How do I read something else now? This series was the most real, raw, gritty, truthful, honest, hurtful series I think I have ever read. Ever. It will stay with me for the rest of my life. Anna Todd wrote the most brilliant words I’ve read in the longest time. Where most stories are fantasy and struggles are quick to be overcome and the happily ever afters are so easy to achieve, she wrote the opposite. It was struggle and second-guessing and emotion on top of emotion, and cruelty, and love and it was just absolutely beautiful.
