Another phenomenal read.
I read more or less for my own work. I related to a lot of the contents within. There were some points that I may have questioned or didn't fully agree with, but for the most part the concepts are valid. I loved the way he is able to write about the topic and I have most definitely quoted him in some of my works. Even if you don't share the same view points this is a great book to dive in to in any case. The perspective is interesting and you can definitely learn some things.
A quick but thorough examination of polar opposites of emotions, Wilson delves deeply not simply into feeling sad, but, by the end of the novel, into something much more transcendent. This novel examines living completely, it exists to defend the beautiful dual nature of humanity, the opposite and extreme emotions that exist so separate from each other, yet are incomprehensibly similar. The novel carefully glamorizes the idea of being able to experience both sides of life, whether the gloomy melancholic walk on a chilly autumn day, or the gleeful joy of a sunny outdoor wedding. Excellent read, and a fresh look on what it means to be alive.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
