I'm not one who cries easily at television or movies, but this book was such a thing of beauty that I caught myself crying two or three times while I read it. It inspires you to love harder and dream louder and feel everything more fiercely than you did before. Or, at least it did for me.

The way it is crafted, the artwork and the way the words all fit together so smoothly, is a work of art all in itself. It is rare, it feels, to find a book that transcends being a beautiful gem and turns into the brightest star you've ever seen.

And I recommend listening to Coldplay's "Mylo Xyolto" while reading this; it added a really nice atmosphere to the experience.

And if the author of this should read this review, I would like to marry you so you should call me. Or I could buy you dinner first, either way.

Spectacular. Just spectacular. Upon opening the book, even just to a random page, the combination of the photograph and the writing underneath it strike a chord, setting off memories of people I've never met in places I may have only dreamed up. This book is magical, sad, touching, exhilarating, joyful and poignant, all at once. I cannot recommend this highly enough. Really. I can't imagine anyone not liking the book. After all, he wrote this for you.

Once in a while you found a book that somehow felt that it is written personally for you. As if the author writes the book with you in his mind, and the dedication has your name written on it. I Wrote This For You is one of those rare books if ever there is already one out there existing. It is also a kind of book that felt like you wrote by yourself for someone you love and care. As if the author write down all the feelings and thoughts you cannot express and manage to put it on the pages of this lovely book.

The book is divided into four parts: Sun, Moon, Stars, Rain. It includes collections of photos, messages or poems that express real feelings and emotions. Each collections are artistically combined tha somehow will touch your soul. The photos alone are carefully pick to show the different angle of life. Each descriptions and messages are heartwarming and inspiring. The photos capture life and the messages express the stories behind it. Stories we can all relate to and messages we all shares.

Reading this book somehow felt that the author took the words out of my soul and put it on paper. As if he really knew me so well, like a bestfriend I always wanted to have and he easily put into words all I wanted to say. There are so many quotations from the book that I can relate to, words that triggered memories from the fast and give a glimpse of the bright future. It is like peeking into my diary and reading all the words I am silently keeping or letters I never send. It tells my story and everyone's stories too.

I Wrote This For You is such a short read but the words it delivers expand beyond the pages. The messages are bleak, hopeful, real and poignant. Add the mysterious and daunting photos this book is written for you and only you by someone who dares to show how much you matter in this world and reminds you that there is someone who cares and life has meaning.

As a long time reader of the blog, I was familiar with most of this book's content. (though I adored the few surprises, and new entries) That said, to have the words and photos on paper and laid out in 4 sections made it a new experience.

I cannot say enough about the powerful imagery this writer creates. Lushly romantic and deeply soul stirring.

I stumbled on the Blog about 2 years ago, and have been fascinated by the writing and the photographs ever since. I love this book, it's an amazing piece of interactive art:)

Hard to describe, really, but this is the kind of honest, real, get-inside-your-head writing the world needs more of. I don't know if it was written for me, but I suppose in a way it was, since I am human.
