The Mercy of Thin Air

Sunday, January 31, 2010

This is somewhat similar to The Lovely Bones' plot, and maybe even a touch of The Time Traveler's Wife, yet completely different in a lot of ways.

Raziela Nolan dies in an accident, leaving her family, friends, and her boyfriend devastated. As years pass and they have learned to move on from her sudden death, Raziela watches them live their lives.

Review: This is a creative novel that really captures what life, love, and loss are all about through different characters with different points of views. It was definitely imaginative and original, which captivated me from start to finish.

There were times that I did get a little bored (and sometimes confused). In each chapter, a different character would take over with his or her point of view. And because each chapter only takes about a page and a half, there were times that it seemed to get a bit choppy, which made it a bit harder to catch who was actually narrating.
Other than that, I enjoyed the book. The story itself drew me in, and the characters were also memorable. I do recommend it, and if you do get the chance to read it, it's always a good idea to read with an open-mind. I think people would really appreciate this story more that way.
