This is Me will take you on an unforgiving no holds barred journey of absolute raw emotion. For me it captures the essence of true love.
Ms Nichols is not one to shy away from uncomfortable topics, This is Me makes you stop, think and reflect, for me that is the mark of a truly remarkable book. This book captivates you from the first page and will leave you breathless. It is a book full of emotion and truly brilliant lines, one of my favorites (there were many!) ‘You stared at me with sadness that ran so deep it must have journeyed through generations’.
This book will live with you for a long time and leaves the question what can we expect from Emma next?
Beginning from her first encounter with therapist, Justine, this is Claire’s story of the highs and lows in their relationship. The most fascinating aspect of this book for me, was the more I read, the more I questioned whether I could trust any of what Claire was saying. Less than half-way through the book, I was leaning towards the belief that Claire and snafu belonged together, whereas Claire and Justine possibly never had.
This is brilliantly written, leaving it up to the reader to decide on their personal response to Claire’s tale. At one end of the spectrum you might decide that she has indeed experienced her relationship with Justine exactly as she recounts it, on the other hand, you might conclude that she’s still in her first session with Justine, and this is all imagination. Or, maybe not even that is true, and she’s simply sitting on a park bench in the rain. Realist, or delusional? ‘This is Me’ poses a mouth-wateringly good conundrum.
Emma Nichols never disappoints with regards to her books, and this one is compulsive reading, but neither the synopsis, nor the ‘Lesbian Romance’ tag, sit well with my impression of it. Marketed simply as psychological fiction (I don’t even think the fact the main character is a lesbian actually matters in this case); this would have got a 5-Star rating from me. Picky? Semantics? Maybe, but this really didn't strike me as a romance.
