It's just about the only word that feels appropriate after finishing The True Story of Atticus and Hazel. I've never read a book by Fisher Amelie before, so I truly had no idea what I was getting into. I started reading in the wee hours this morning, thinking I might take in a couple chapters while I made sure my kids went back to sleep. Instead, I found myself out of bed, making coffee and curling up in a dark family room so I could devour this in peace.
And my heart went right out the window. It feels like a simple story of chemistry, with shades of insta-love and undeniable fate. But it's so much more. Am I being purposefully vague? Yes. Please do yourself a favor and don't spoil this story. Don't read reviews with spoilers. Don't ask someone who's read it which parts will tear at your heart. I'm so glad that there were no reviews for me to read, honestly. The only puzzle piece that I'll give you is that it does standalone. No cliffhangers here, people. Just gut-wrenching emotion and a perfectly, imperfect love.
I want to read it again. I want to go back and pretend like I'd never read it so I can read it for the first time. I've only felt that way about one other book this year. I don't cry easily in books, nor do I often feel true surprise in the way a story unfolds. But Fisher Amelie gave me both of those things in spades. Along with a massive book hangover that I truly wasn't prepared for. Some people may not like this book, which sounds odd to put in my five star review, but the depth of emotion might be uncomfortable or unbelievable for some readers. It wasn't for me. I FELT all of them so deeply. I've never gone through the things in this book, but I've been through enough in my life to know that sometimes, that uncomfortable depth is the only thing that you are capable of feeling. It's why I'm still sitting here with an aching, overwhelmed heart.
One of my favorites of 2016, maybe 2015 too. I won't re-read this more than once or twice a year, because it's a special book. It's going to my tippy-top VIP shelf, to be pulled out in those quiet moments when I want to relive Atticus and Hazel's love.
Atticus uses beats to produce his passion.
Fisher Amelie, she uses 26 letters to choreograph a masterpiece so poignant from the first arrangement, I was unable to put it down. There is something so special about an author who can take you on a journey that breaks your heart when reading about people you don’t even know then heals the brokenness with a story that will remain timeless. This is a story for anyone who has ever loved, lost, and didn’t know where to begin to grieve. A roller coaster ride without the waiting in line.
This was a prime example of why I should read book summeries, I had no idea what I was getting into but I did not expect the amount of depth that I found in the story of Atticus and Hazel. So many deep thoughts, deep feelings, heartbreak, and healing. This is one of those books that changes you, leaves you appreciating life a little bit more.
I always enjoy reading books with artistic characters, maybe because I’m not artistic at all? Whatever the reason, I enjoy seeing the world through their eyes, even if it’s only for a moment.
"People who don’t appreciate art aren’t living a full life. Art, whether it’s music, paint, words, whatever the medium, busts veins of color that usually lay dormant beneath our skin. It gives life love. It opens the mind for greater pursuits."
I really have no words to say other than this story is beautiful and tragic all wrapped together. If you make it through without your heart breaking then you have to be made of stone. As always, even though it hurt to read this book I want to share my misery with you so I definitely suggest you read it!
