Review

"You'll laugh, weep and fly through each crazy-readable page." (Redbook) “Taylor Jenkins Reid has written a poignant and heartfelt exploration of love and commitment in the absence of shared time that asks, what does it take to be the love of someone's life?” (Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus New York Times bestselling authors) "Sweet, heartfelt, and surprising, Forever Interrupted is a story about a young woman struggling to find her way after losing her husband. These characters made me laugh as well as cry, and I ended up falling in love with them, too." (Sarah Pekkanen author of The Best of Us) "This beautifully rendered story explores the brilliance and rarity of finding true love, and how to find our way back through the painful aftermath of losing it. These characters will leap right off the page and into your heart." (Amy Hatvany author of Heart Like Mine) "Touching and powerful...Reid masterfully grabs hold of the heartstrings and doesn't let go. A stunning first novel." (Publishers Weekly, starred review) “A moving novel about life and death.” (Kirkus) "Moving, gorgeous and, at times, heart-wrenching. Taylor Jenkins Reid writes with wit and true emotion that you can feel. Read it, savor it, share it." (Sarah Jio New York Times bestselling author of The Violets of March)

The first few pages of Forever Interrupted would lead you to believe it is a simple sob story, but it is much more than that. It reveals the universal truths of grief, and the human capacity to have resilience in the face of loss. While the book had me tearing up at many points, it also had me laughing and smiling, almost embarrassingly so. Jenkins Reid really has a way of using words to connect to the reader. All in all, an incredibly powerful and enjoyable read.

I have to say this is one of the best debut novels I have ever read. Jenkins Reid is able to capture emotion in such a raw and honest way. Also, I thought the book was structurally compelling. Jenkins Reid weaves between the past and present in a way that illuminates and enhances both. Like other reviewers online have said, the moment I started reading Forever, Interrupted I was unable to put it down. A truly wonderful, cathartic, and immensely gratifying read.

I'm a hard-to-please reader who abandons a lot of books. When I pick up a novel, I want a powerful emotional experience and an immediate connection with its characters. That's exactly what I got with Forever, Interrupted. Elsie's grief is raw and real. I could feel everything she felt, even teared up a few times. But the story isn't all boo-hoo and grieving. Backstory is woven in at precisely the right times. There are happy moments and humor, and secondary characters who add depth and dimension, including the intimidating mother-in-law, whom I grew to love.

Everything about this novel is realistic and well done. Taylor Jenkins Reid has a new fan. I'm looking forward to her next book.

Picked this up based on a great Publisher's Weekly review and I was not disappointed. Fast paced, emotional and raw I found the story gripping and powerful. I zipped through the book and finished it in a couple of days. It's the rare book that really resonates and stays in your mind long after you've finished it. Very eager to see any follow up efforts from this author.

Format: Paperback
On a rainy New Year's Day, Elsie Porter heads out to pick up a pizza, and meets the charming Ben Ross. Their instant chemistry leads to a date that week, and an elopement by May. Nine days later, when Ben heads out to get cereal for Elsie, he is hit by a truck and killed on impact. At the hospital she has an unfortunate first introduction with her new mother-in-law Susan, who had never heard of Elsie.

As Taylor Jenkins Reid's first novel, this is very impressive. She interweaves Ben and Elsie's relationship with Elsie and Susan's grieving and healing. It's a beautiful story of love and loss, and learning to open yourself up to what the world has brought you.

This book had been on my shelf for a few months and I am glad I finally decided to read it. It's emotional, heart touching, book, dealing with romanic and friend relationships. The main character, Elsie Porter is wonderfully writer and relatable. I took this book on a trip, and it was the perfect one to pass a few hours on a plane and on layover. I'm a fan of light-hearted, silly chick-lit, but enjoyed that this had more depth to it, but wasn't overly sad or depressing.

It's a nice story but the ending sucks. It leaves you kind of hanging. I wish for more. Maybe part 2 it's coming?

For anyone who has loved and lost that love... I just read this book only now, after all these years. I couldn't put it down once I got started, though. Every word, thought, emotion of Elsie captured the exact feelings of anyone who has had to go through grieving for the loss of someone very dear. It was honest. I love this book; I cried reading parts of this book. I don't think that's ever happened. I have to say though that the ending, the last line from Ben, was quite abrupt and ironic. But in a way I loved hope (at the time it was said) and the irony in it (considering what happened days after). I cannot wait to see the film adaptation of this book. I hope they make a good adaptation.

Forever Interrupted is a extremely well written, heart-wrenching and also a very fun book. It explores love and grief through two character relationships that exposes interesting truths about these emotions. Im so busy, so I don't read novels too often anymore, but am very happy I read this. I found the characters compelling and the story though provoking.
