    A four-star read that will pull you apart

    Love will tear us apart by Holly Seddon a four-star read that will pull you apart. This book will make you laugh and cry have you ever told a friend if you weren’t married by a certain time you would wed? I did, but I then married an ex I dated 11 years previously so I saved myself from having to answer the question, and I honestly don’t know if I would have been able to, as I wasn’t the same person when I turned 30 as I was when I was the 21 year old who made the pact. Kate and Paul were brave and stupid at the same time, but you do things don’t you and then wake up 10 years later wondering what if? Holly Sneddon has a great way of writing people, real people who have faults and fears, showing us that life goes on even when we don’t want it to. The flashbacks were a little over the top at times, but hey also played a very important part, so maybe it was just me getting a little flashback frenzy. Overall I enjoyed the book, but there were just a couple of niggles that I couldn’t seem to get over.

    Friendship Never Ends

    I simply loved this book and was quite sad to see it end, especially as it sort of drifts to a conclusion but none is ever reached, there is no finality to the book. As this is a tale of life then I can excuse it for that as there is no death to neaten things off and provide a natural conclusion. I think it helps that it is firmly set in a time period that I recognise all too well. Kate and Paul are children of the 1980s and a couple of years younger than I am so their fictional world is one I recognise - the brands, the TV shows, the events referenced - all help bring a sense of authenticity to the story. Couple that with the naivety of the young and their self-centredness and you begin to realise that some things are simply a universal experience. Watching Kate almost destroy herself through work and poor choices is not as melodramatic as it all sounds. There is a healthy dose of realism in here that endears this rather wretched and dispossessed young woman to you and so you forgive her adult failings rather more readily in print then you would in real life. Maybe that's the joy of it, she has generally made a horrendous muck up of things so you feel slightly better about your own failings. I did find the denouement rather bittersweet and strangely uplifting. It showed that maybe friendship is maybe far more important than passion and love and it is certainly more enduring. I RECEIVED A FREE COPY OF THIS BOOK FROM READERS FIRST IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW.
