Bu kitabı sevdim! Yani, çok, çok iyi!
Seriye mükemmel bir başlangıç. Kesinlikle beni hızlı bağladım. En az yarım düzine kere yeniden okudum.
Kendi kendine yardım için okumak için çok iyi bir kitap
Bu hikayede kendi nedenlerimle süpürüldüm - bu aşk hikayesi, gizem romanı ve İkinci Dünya Savaşı sonrası tarihi kurgunun bir birleşimi. Beni bu kitaba en fazla çeken şey, İkinci Dünya Savaşı sonrası Berlin'in romanda başka bir karakter olarak ele alınmasıydı. Ziyaret ettiğimde Berlin'i sevdim ve İkinci Dünya Savaşı'ndaki rolünden Soğuk Savaş sırasındaki ikili varlığına kadar tarihi tamamen büyüleyici. Kitabı okumak beni sevdiğim Berlin'e geri getirdi, aşk hikayesi çok iyi ve doğruydu kıskançlığımdaki karakterlerden neredeyse nefret ediyordum ve gizem Naziler, ABD ordusu, istihbarat ve toplama kamplarının dehşetini içeriyordu. her şeyi inanılmaz ilginç kıldı. Bunu plajda okudum ve bunun için mükemmeldi, ama her zaman tavsiye ederim.
This book is about five teenagers in a rehabilitation centre for addiction, and I had reservations about starting it. I tend to get angry when these issues aren't dealt with well, but I was relieved to see the author handled everything with honesty and sensitivity and a healthy sense of realism. There are two main narrators - Kelly and Christopher, and we get to see the pov of the other three through personal essays and surveys that form part of their treatment. The group therapy sessions are in script format, which makes them easy to follow. The style is sparse and raw. It works, but there were a few times when I wished certain things would have been expanded on. The characters are very well done. They don't fall into stereotypes or roles. They just exist like real people. The author does a great job of showing the complexities of being neither bad nor good, and the extremes people go to because of addiction. they've done some horrible things and think some horrible thoughts but they are all likeable and sympathetic in their own way. Christopher, in particular, is wonderful. I grew to care so much for his character. I'm not exactly an expert on addiction treatment, but from what I know they depiction was very accurate. Several recovery conventions that I know of were used, and you could tell the author well researched it. I've read enough bad fics to spot when it's portrayed wrong and this definitely felt authentic. It did shy away from the 12 Steps programme, which surprised me a little. Shirley, the Group leader, was a wonderful character. She was fun and tough and helped the characters grow and served to highlight the social realities of substance abuse problems. I have a lot of love and respect now for this book.It was sad and sweet. It moved me to tears several times, the style and content impressed me and I think it provided lots of insight into addiction and recovery. I give it 9/10
