When a book changes your outlook on life so profoundly it’s worth sharing. I just finished reading The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah and it’s definitely one of the best books I have ever read and one of my favourites.
What did I learn?
This novel by Kristin Hannah made me so thankful for the times that we live in and for everything that I have. We take for granted how lucky we are and how much we have in life. This book showed me this.
I have never felt so sorry, had so much empathy, been so sad, and so hopeful all in one book. I cried, I laughed, and I was holding my breathe for most of the story hoping that what I thought was happening truly was not happening. Every time I thought it possibly couldn’t get worse, it did. Kristin Hannah kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the story.
I know this sounds terribly depressing, but it really isn’t. It’s eye opening and by reading this story I have learnt so much about the human race. By thinking myself into the characters situations and asking myself the question: What would I do? I also learnt so much about myself and my own character.
I loved everything about this book and I want more. This was one of those books that you need to end, and want to finish, but once it’s all over you want to cry because you want more and because you want to start again hoping, everytime that you read it, for a better outcome.
This book will be one that I will buy as gifts for everyone that I know loves to read. It’s one that I can’t imagine anyone not loving.
