But this time, I was pleasantly surprised!
“Never Meant To Be" is written in a unique narrative style which, personally, I have never encountered before: the story is told through two different diaries which are being read simultaneously by a journalist. These are Johnny and Esther’s diaries, who are the protagonists of the book. Our main characters initially meet in childhood but fail to keep in contact until they reconnect, later on, during their adult years. Though they come from different backgrounds (Johnny, a street boy, and Esther, a rich girl) they find an exceptional way to build an indestructible connection between them.
... And while everything seems to unfold as a mere love / romance story, the journalist starts receiving persistent threats urging her to either get rid of the diaries or sell them! How could it be so? It all looked like just another love story. What's hidden in the diaries? What is it that the journalist is missing?
No doubt that this is one of those books that keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end! I totally recommend it.
This is hands-down the best book I've read in years (and I read hundreds of books a year)! The book comes with a warning, through: once you begin reading it, you'll be hooked and will be tempted to read it in one sitting.
"Never meant to be" is not your average and predictable romance novel. As you read it, and as the characters develop, you will really identify, sympathize and even cry with them. The author writes in the 3rd person, from the unique perspective of the 2 main characters' (Johnny and Esther) diaries. This is one of the elements that makes the books so spell-bounding and different.
The book is a veritable, modern-day Romeo and Juliet love story as Esther, a rich, privileged girl, and Johnny, a dirt poor street kid find their friendship blossoming into love. They lose touch only to meet again a decade later, which stirs up a whole host of emotions. With Esther and Johnny both dealing with their own, personal difficulties (the past haunting Johnny and Esther dealing with the loss of her parents), they do, however, build an unbreakable bond of love that is both incredibly touching and awe-inspiring.
If there is one book you read this year, "Never meant to be" is definitely it! Highly recommended!
