RATING: 4 out of 5 Stars
With all the influx of Indie gems lately, I’ve been having such a hard time keeping up. I blame some of my Goodreads friends who seem to have a knack for finding such a book. The Edge of Never has been popping on my feed since it came out and all I can say is, wow. Someone hit the jackpot on this one.
This book has a way of making you feel complacent. In fact, up until about 80% into it, I didn’t think anything major was going to happen. And then…and then. The author slaps you with a mother-of-all reality checks.
It’s about a couple of characters who were on a journey to find themselves, to face their fears and to figure out what they want to do with the rest of their lives. There was a lot of mutual soul searching done in a way that was almost reflective of what the characters were going through. They used each other like a mirror – seeing themselves in each other’s eyes and consequently accepting their faults and magnifying everything that makes them beautiful inside and out.
There was a lot of humour and sexual tensions and humour caused by sexual tensions.
It’s a road trip full of music, revelations, doubts and secrets.
The beauty about this novel is the simplicity of the life lessons you will learn from it.
Never take anything for granted. Life is too short. Love can come from the most unexpected places and more much more sublime when you least expect it.
I don’t think I have to toot this book’s horn too much. I mean it’s been receiving some pretty phenomenal reviews since its release. Just know that if romance is what you’re after, well this book delivers one that’ll curl your toes and twist your guts.
