5.0 out of 5 stars Life changing. Powerful. Amazing. Beautiful. Uplifting. A must read.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 August 2020
I don't think I can do this book/review enough justice but I'm going to give it my best shot... If there is one book I would urge you and shout at you to buy it would be this on. Go do it. Treat yourself You will not regret it. I promise. This is going straight into my top twenty of the year reads. I've awarded it five stars and I'd award more if I could! How do I start?

I must admit it's not what I expected at all. But I feel it was just what I needed right now honestly. This book is going to be huge. This book for me was amazing, outstanding, life changing, powerful and thought provoking. Honestly have you ever felt so low you wanted to die? Then this book is for you. It will change your whole perspective on life. It has for me. It's taught me A LOT of life lessons and how I see my life. I actually have fallen in love with this book and I don't say that lightly.

I don't want to ruin this for anyone but if you could view every possible outcome of your life would you? Would you ever be happy? Just wow. It's taught me to open my eyes, appreciate what I have not what I want. Life is life. Life is beautiful. I loved it all. I devoured it in a day. Beautifully told. An easy read for me done in a day but one I felt I NEEDED to read right at this moment in my life. Now this is my review others may feel differently about this book and some may hate it. But I cant explain how much I loved, enjoyed and needed this book. One I can always go back too when I'm feeling low. Uplifting.

So thank you Matt. Absolutely brilliant. Grateful. It's really made me think and I miss it already. Perfection.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll be thankful for the polar bear!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 August 2020
I am envious of every person who is yet to read this book, because to read it for the very first time is an emotional experience.

I read it in one sitting, desperately not wanting it to end but wanting to find out how it turned out all at the same time.

When I got to the end I was in tears and I'm still thinking about it and trying to process it two days later. I don't know why, but I needed to read it and it arrived at the right time.

One of my very favourite authors.
