The Blue Book by A. L. Kennedy

I’ve read hundreds of books so far but no book captivated me between it’s pages like ‘The Blue Book’ did. For the first time, I failed to return this book on time to the library not because I didn’t complete reading it, but because I reread each and every page and some lines, I read more than ten times. Wow.. Just Wow!

When I picked this book from the library, I must admit I chose it because of it’s name, ‘The Blue Book’ and blue is my favorite color. Another reason is, the book is in blue color. I couldn’t resist and I had to read it. When I got into the taxi, I opened the first page and I have to tell you, I fell in love.. instantly.

It’s a story about love, loss, second chance. Beth finding her way back to Arthur, is absolutely heart-melting. The protagonist, Arthur, what a character? I wonder why such characters are only fictional. It’s a little dark, I would say but I am totally in love with him. The most amazing thing about this book is, the author wrote every single thought in such a way, I couldn’t stop myself from pausing my life for a few seconds to rethink and appreciate how those particular thoughts resemble mine.

BLUE is officially my favorite color all over again.
