The Friday Project: eBook | Hardcover | Paperback
People lose things all the time. Keys, money, small stuff. What will you do when you lose something big. Like a wall in your house, the love of your life, your sense of direction, your mother?
The book tells the story of 7 people who have lost something that really mattered. Showing how vulnerable they are without that one specific thing.
This was interesting. I picked up this book and saw it had a lot of chapters told by various characters giving me an 'A Game of Thrones' scare. I am awful with keeping track when stories of different characters are getting mixed. A bit reluctant I started reading.
The chapters are short and the names of the characters all differ enough from each other to keep them to their own part of the story. At some point a few of the characters get involved in the stories of others and that was so obvious it did not confuse my brain.
What is the most interesting in this story is the things the people lose. The front wall of your house is not something that you easily misplace. It made me grin until the lady of the house started to explain how vulnerable she felt now everyone seemed to feel free to approach her. All of the things lost made the people in the book vulnerable and slowly this feeling got a grip on me.
Though all stories have something heartbreaking in them the story of Jake and his father was just the worst. I do not easily cry over books but this part of the story brought me really close.
