The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick

Friday, January 18, 2013

This book! I really, really liked it. I read it in a week and probably will reread it again sometime. First off, the story is heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. It's realistic, and I really liked how the author handled the issues and topics talked about here, such as depression, among others related to this. I felt like everything was handled perfectly.

While the story could just be like any other contemporary fiction, I think what truly made it stand out to me was its main character, Pat. I fell in love with its main character the moment I first started reading about his thoughts. His voice seems so painfully real to me, as if he is simply somebody I knew personally. He is likable enough, and I just couldn't help but not only empathize with him and his situation, but also root for him all the way. It's truly something when you are able to hope for the best for a character. 

Everything about this book I truly enjoyed, but I definitely loved the main character and the fact that the author had given him such a loud, realistic voice. I highly recommend this if you enjoy contemporary fiction. 

P.S. - The movie was also lovely. Jennifer Lawrence is my favorite and she plays the supporting character flawlessly. Bradley Cooper is Bradley Cooper, and that's enough.
