I’m sad to say that I didn’t particularly enjoy this. You’ve Reached Sam was, without a doubt, a very emotional and thought evoking book. Even though I didn’t love it, I can’t argue with that. That said, I didn’t care much for the characters. I do, admittedly, often struggle with books about grief. If I Stay was not the one for me. I thought this one sounded a bit more like something I would enjoy, though. I was wrong.
This is very much an “it’s not you, it’s me” reaction to this book. It was well written, and certainly enjoyable for the right audience. I just couldn’t get connected to the characters or care about their relationship, and therefore I didn’t care about the grief.
