Everything I've read by Amy Harmon has been astounding. They've been 5 star reads across the board. I don't know why I hesitated to read Infinity + One, but I did. If I had to think about which of her books has been my favorite, I would have (probably) said Running Barefoot. Now, though, I don't know. Infinity + One is definitely up there. I'm not sure which would be #1, but it's irrelevant really. I love her books.
Infinity + One is a beautiful love story about two broken people that find themselves together in the unlikeliest of ways. I found myself smiling so many times through this book (that hasn't happened much recently) and I absolutely fell in love with this story. Though I've already done a Top Ten Tuesday of my favorite books of this year, I would definitely have put this book on that list had I read it early.
This book was so well crafted and the characters of Fin Clyde and Bonnie Rae Shelby stole my heart. Bonnie Rae for her ebullience and child-like innocence tamped down but not truly broken--there were so many 'stories' in the book of her going to the aid of folks in need...you just had to love her. And, interestingly enough, the sequence of her being rescued from the bridge as she was going to leap to her death is in actuality often true. Folks who have attempted to end their lives and survived (e.g., leaping from the Golden Gate Bridge) have almost invariably stated that once they 'let go and started to fall' they immediately wanted to take it back.
Fin Clyde, undoubtedly a brilliant, misplaced and introverted man, was my hero in spite of himself or because of himself. No matter what life and Bonnie Raw handed him, he endured. The loss of his brother (twin) and his freedom wounded him beyond measure; his genius was an odd fit.
Their journey with and to each other is absolutely lovely, hilarious, moving, powerful, raw, poignant, sensual and exciting. Yet, there is one standout scene for me...one that I had to read over and over again because of it's crystalline writing, depth and emotional strength. The park scene..that's all I'm going to say. It is literally exquisite.
This book did not get the reviews and/or attention that some of Ms Harmon's other books have received (namely A Different Blue and Making Faces earlier and The Law of Moses most recently) but this reviewer will put it up there with the best of them. Don't miss it.
I’m almost tempted to leave it at that! Anyone who’s read the book will understand the emotions behind that statement and the fact that it means that, once again, Ms. Harmon has written a book that you want to reread the moment you finish the last page. But I guess, in all fairness, I should probably say more for those of you who haven’t read it…so here goes!
Where to start? Well, I guess it’s best to let you know that this book plays out like an epic movie. It’s got everything you could possibly want in an adventure – kidnapping, assault, attempted murder, theft. Just those things alone will have your heart racing. But, in reality, it’s the subplot…the romance…that had me completely mesmerized!
These characters lived lives so far from anything I’ve ever experience yet I felt completely at home with them. Bonnie Rae is a famous country singer, someone who should have the world at her fingertips. Yet, she feels like a prisoner in her life. Infinity (Finn) Clyde has actually experienced the prison life and wants so badly to move forward, to redeem himself, to leave the past behind. When these two are thrust together, the sparks are dangerous and the emotions, explosive. I adored each of them, especially the fact that they saw the world from two very different angles – Finn from the logical, mathematical view and Bonnie from a more creative, musical side. For Finn, the world is numbers, for Bonnie it’s music notes…but together they are perfect.
I don’t want to give away the excitement of this story because the adventure is something you should experience for yourself, but I will say that I had a very hard time putting this one down! As always, Ms. Harmon’s writing is fantastic. Only she could make a book that’s told both in first person (Bonnie’s POV) and third person work. Such a tricky undertaking, but it perfect for this story. Ultimately, this is a tale of self discovery, of hope, of belief and, of course, of love. And I, for one, adored every page!
