The boys in the trees

Another book I got for my birthday, from Kristen and Taylor.

This is a very interesting book. There’s no dialogue. There are no actual events. It’s all retrospective and inside different characters heads. For this reason, it gets a little long sometimes. But it’s also very interesting most times. I’m not sure it’s one of my favourite books ever, but it was definitely an intriguing style.

Some good lines:

“Sitting in the hard chair besides the hospital bed, he knew that what he was feeling was the rest of his life without her.”

“And in the paper-strewn kitchen in the middle of the night they talked abut how strange it was, that the person you were was perhaps formed most by all that you had forgotten.”

    I really like those two things you quoted.

    Would you recommend the book worth reading…?
