Gayle Forman À 1 SUMMARY
Didn t like him much either He seemed the usual dark type And one of the things I really hate in romance is when I can t see why the boy and the girl fall for each other I do understand they both have the passion for music but so many other people dorant overComment all you like My mind s not going to change Sorry 45 stars There is something comforting in that To go down as a family No one left behind I m notI m not crying Why would I be If I stay is only one of the most endearing sto My impression It was good Not fantastic but okay Decent Tolerable But I m a bit irritated with this book right now because it is one of those books that has been ridiculously overrated Yeah it was sad But not devastating Not heart wrenching This book was fine but I honestly think that if I had read the first chapter and then read the last chapter I wouldn t have missed much Yes her parents were both beautiful people who will be missed And I have to admit the whole story of he brother s life and death tugged at my heartstrings But at the end of the book I found myself feeling bored than anything This book wasn t new or original or groundbreaking It was a way for me to ill time while I waited for my Mom to pick me up from school I ve seen stuff like this novel a million times before and most of them were a lot sad Sorry Forman but I m not impressed EDIT Guys I wrote this review in 2010 Do you seriously feel the need to continue commenting on this when I ve been messaged by die hard fans and fellow haters alike had to answer every possible argument for or against it and been criticized for daring to write a less than glowing review on a website whose literal purpose is to review critiue gush about and condemn books Are you honestly that rilled up by a negative opinionIf I Stay just isn t that great My tastes have changed uite a bit since I read it and I stand by my opinion Why do you care Why are you still whining about it when a simple read through of the comments will show that I ve already addressed your specific complaint Go away Write your own glowing review Watch the movie version coming up which also looks terrible but what do I now Go Leave I don t care I do not care I don t caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaare. Has to contemplate everything she holds dear and make a choice to go or to stayHeartwrenchingly raw and heartbreakingly romantic Gayle Forman's international bestseller asks the ultimate uestion What would you do if you had to choos.
Despite the general hype about this book I had my reservations because I had gone into The Lovely Bones with similar optimism and been highly disappointed by a story that never really took off and was simply drab and boring After reading the goodreads description for this I imagined something of the same and could only hope I wouldn t have a repeat performanceTo be honest if you re looking for fast paced adventure and a really gripping plot then I m not sure this book is for you Gayle Forman uses subtleties and beautiful writing to tell her story in a deeply emotional and moving way She creates wonderful moments from the most simplistic things as playing cello or going to a concert or the protagonist spending time with her grandfather Where The Lovely Bones was a book about death If I Stay is very much a book about life and how the small things we overlook are so important Forman creates the sense that life is always worth living even when it seems that your whole world is falling apart if you have nothing else you still have a friend who d risk their life for you Still think your life isn t worth living when someone would disagree to such an extentThe many different relationships in the book are told in varied but eually moving ways The author shows the intricate relationship between mother and daughter father and daughter siblings grandparents and grandchildren boyfriend and girlfriend and just that of a person s closest friend Mia a shy cello player from Oregon with only one close friend is shown in this book to have a life full of love and things to be grateful for I found it truly inspiring and heartwarming I will be reading the seuel without a doubt If I Stay If I Stay 1 Gayle FormanIf I Stay is a young adult novel by Gayle Forman published in 2009 The story follows 17 year old Mia Hall as she deals with the aftermath of a catastrophic car accident involving her family Mia is the only member of her family to survive and she finds herself in a coma Through this coma however Mia has an out of body experience Through this she is able to watch the actions around her as friends and family gather at the hospital where she is being treated We follow Mia s stories and the unfolding A special anniversary edition of Gayle Forman's breakout bestseller If I Stay in a brand new look and with an additional chapter to Mia's story Everything can change in an instant For Mia the day started like any other surrounded by.
