book.fave.rave: FIX YOU
It's one of those days that I thank my friends and people whom I follow on Goodreads.
I found out about Fix You here and I am so happy that I gave it a shot.
The story may be kind of short, but it's intense and emotionally gripping.
I just can't imagine being in Zoey's shoes. Of course, I can totally imagine the part wherein I get to have the guy that I've been secretly in love with for years and years.. but the illness part? I just can't. I think that the author was spot on about how a person would feel when faced with this kind of challenge in life. The frustration, the sadness and the sudden urge to live life to the fullest... it was all here.
The two characters were amazing with each other. They supported one another. I love that about them. I am so happy with Rob's character. He was just.... THERE. Yes, he was just there. He was with Zoey all the way and I can't help but appreciate that about him. Zoey's support system (her girl friends) were all also very good. I was laughing out loud at some of their conversations. It was a good thing that she had these people while dealing with her illness.
Naturally, the plot was good, albeit short. Aside from hot scenes, this novel gives out scenes that made me teary-eyed or downright made me cry.
I recommend this book to those who are not opposed to emotional scenes, cheesy moments, flashbacks, best friends-turned lovers plot or the illness plot.
