Seriously. The book left me hanging. Although I like it when movies and books are cliffhangers of some sort, this one’s different because I’m under the impression that the book is a stand-alone. A good book, actually. It’s not very predictable for me because the predictions I had in my head didn’t happen in the book. The Beginning of Everything reminds me of A Bend in the Road by Nicholas Sparks, or parts of it does.
EZRA FAULKNER — His broken heart was the reason the succeeding events occurred. When he’s hurt, he tends to think irrationally (or so I thought). I don’t know exactly if I like his character or not but one thing’s for sure: he isn’t very sure which lunch table he belongs. He was very annoying when his old friends asked him to join them, leaving his old friends wondering (perhaps except Luke).
CASSIDY THORPE — I thought she was the shy new girl, you know, like Eleanor in Eleanor & Park (which I haven’t finished reading) but she’s the exact opposite of what I thought she was. I thought of her as weird and at some point, she also reminded me of Margo in Paper Towns. Cassidy was very unpredictable, and the very reason why I was sad after reading the book.
The Beginning of Everything made me realize that happy endings don’t always happen even if people seem to be very compatible with one another. The words used throughout the novel were easy to devour, making it easier to read. Parts of it were dull, but most parts weren’t. However, I’m not quite sure if it’s very worth recommending but you could give me a try and tell me I’m not quite right. 😀
