Into This River I Drown

Into This River I Drown - T.J. Klune DNF at 50%.

Let me start off by saying that this book really is beautiful. The writing was at times absolutely captivating.

But it is also a book about hurt. And boy, does Benji hurt! He gives new meaning to the word hurt. And although I could understand why he was hurting so much, I almost couldn’t supress the urge to throw my e-reader across the room at times. Benji needed a good kick to the butt!

I know from firsthand experience what he is going through (with his father of course, not with Calliel ;) ). And I understand the death of a loved one is very very hard, but this book was a bit much for me. I felt like Benji chose to be this unhappy.

Life is a beautiful thing, not something you just have to get through.

So although I understand all the raving reviews for this book, I will not continue. I am feeling depressed. Need something to cheer me up now.
