Possibly the best book I have read in 2013 so far! My Review: I absolutely adored this book, it could be my favorite so far this year. The snarky bit at the beginning really drew me in (and I have book marks and highlighted quotes all over the first couple of chapters) and from there it ran away with me. I became very attached to Em, Nate and Linn, I wish I could hang out in real life! Emory has a very tough road of heartbreak and self discovery to travel throughout the book and you feel privilaged to be on that journey with him. I loved the sweet development of the relationship between Em & Nate as well, little Chicago made me go "Awe". Attwell even made me very interested in Emory's job as a Speech Therapist, I may have to do a little research on that, it was adorable how he got on the floor and wiggled like a snake hissing to help Abby. There are just so many touching, sweet, and comical moments that I can't possibly tell you all of them. All I can say is go get this book and read it! My Rating: I really can't rave about this book enough, I really hope you all will give it a chance. I give it a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag

This was a funny and fantastic book. Em is a guy whose fiance leaves him at the altar, so he decides to through with his "honeymoon" in Thailand. There he meets Nate, a fellow American traveler, who he bonds with on different emotional levels, some of which Em isn't aware. Their relationship seemingly ends with their return to American, but with a little fate, it develops back into a friendship that is delightful to watch grow. I lost track of the times I giggled to myself and laughed out loud when I read this book. The internal musing of Em, whose POV this book is written in, were so funny in how he looked at things and himself. The banter he had with Nate, his friend Linn - and heck, even with himself - were what drew those responses from me. I quickly became invested in him right from the start, even through the times I wanted to shake him. And Nate. Through Em's eyes and thoughts, I couldn't help but love him, too. All of the characters were so richly developed through their interactions with Em and Nate, but in particular, his best friend Linn really stood out for me. Can't wait to read future stories from her!
