Hours have passed since finishing this beautifully wild tale and I am still at a loss for words because this story was unlike anything I have EVER read before. It's breathtakingly real and holds a strong message surrounding mental health and addiction, something that is too often pushed under the rug. This story will test your limits and you will feel as if your heart has been ripped out of your chest and run over a million times from the abundance of emotions you will surely experience.
The intensity of this story alone will leave you craving more of Six and Mira's mad love. Their love is toxic, unforgivable and yet tragically beautiful all at the same time. You will love it and you will hate it at times. The pain they feel will become the pain you feel, but that kind of intensity is what makes this such a phenomenal read. Whitney Barbetti has taken a risk with this story and I have to say that the risk will be worth it for those willing to take a leap of faith and intrust their fragile souls with this kind of mad love. This story is not for the weakhearted, but for those open to new experiences.
Six and Mira's mad love has broken me in more ways then one and it's not even over yet... I don't know how my heart is going to make it through Pieces of Eight, but I am ready and willing to dive deep into the blackness right now!
Mira suffers from mental illness, life does not come easy to her and every day is a battle. She tries to find some sense of normalcy, but Mira doesn’t know what that entails. She struggles on a daily basis and sometimes in the simplest things in life are daunting for her. I can’t imagine what it would be like to live in Mira’s head for a day. Whitney did a fabulous job of making us understand how lonely Mira was. She was looking for love and acceptance, nothing she’s ever experienced unconditionally in her life. My heart broke for her, but in the next breath I was frustrated with her behavior. I know she couldn’t help herself, I so desperately wanted her to fine the peace she was looking for.
Six enters her life, he’s as mysterious as he is serious. For some reason Mira and Six make sense together and it’s unexpected for them both. He’s patient with Mira, he’s kind and looks out for her like no one ever has. Six is good for Mira, but I need more of him. He’s gentle in a way that Mira needs. I really loved his character, but I want more of him so I can understand better what makes him tick.
I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book. I read the blurb, but that doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of what this story entails. Whitney’s ability to pull us into their tough journey was fabulous. Her writing is raw and real. I was truly engaged from page one. The up’s and downs of their relationship are eye opening and captivating. The connection Mira and Six have doesn’t diminish over the years. The heat between them is sexy and powerful. But is that enough to pull someone out of the darkness they feel perpetually clouded in? To say I’m anxious to continues this journey with them in Pierces of Eight is an understatement. This is a roller coaster of a ride I’m happy I took. There are secrets I’m hoping Whitney reveals. I want answers, I want confessions and honesty, no more secrets. My eyes and fingers are crossed that they can find their own version of HEA.
Whether you've read Whitney Barbetti before or haven't, there is one thing you should know - her writing will force you to examine emotions, characters, plots in many ways. It will suck you in and leave you grasping on the bits and pieces you unravel as each page turns to the next.
Six Feet Under is book one in a duet, that means of course that you are NOT going to get a full conclusion at the end of this book. You are going to be left with questions, you are going to be left aghast in some ways and anxious in others. Prepare yourself. The good news is the torture won't be long as Pieces of Eight it quick to follow.
To say Mira is a complex person is putting it mildly - but there are reasons - there is a purpose to all of the complexities that make up who she is - that define her. There might be moments you down right loathe her, there will be moments you just want to give her a hug, and then there are tons of moments where you feel as lost as she does and don't know what to hope for next. BUT if you really dig deep, if you learn her, if you feel her pain, if you get even a small inkling of the whys and the hows - you'll come away understanding Mira and the way she is, the decisions she's made and the actions she's taken.
Six is quite a character himself, I've craved knowing his and Mira's story for a long time, after catching glimpses of both characters in other books. One of the things about Six that has always struck me is his determination, his fierce loyalty, and his strength. All of these things drew me to him, all of these qualities have their place in the story of these two.
Six Feet Under gives us the beginning of these two, that first immediate connection, and draw us out from there, through many years, and many struggles, and hurts and pains, but also some good moments to. This book showcases Mira's demons and how they follow her, how she fights them, how she embraces them and every stage in between. This book spans a ten year period, and you'd think that a time span that long would be drawn out and slow moving, but in truth, each and every moment will engage you in some manner. You'll find yourself craving more even as you dread what might happen next. You will be lost in the tirade of emotions, swept up in the depths of Mira's sickness all while finding little bits of hope to cling to. Six and Mira's path is not easy, not free of troubles nor pain, but it is raw and real and rightfully theirs.
Barbetti tackles an extreme topic with grace and realism, she shines a light on the mental struggles of a character who can be selfish, mean, misunderstood, but one who deserves love despite all of that.
