I’d like to share my thoughts with you on the book ‘How I Live Now’ by Meg Rosoff.
I love how this book is written, in a ‘Stream of Consciousness’ style, it’s such a refreshing change. Whilst I’m reading it in the voice I’ve made for Daisy, you can really get into the story and feel like you’re on this journey with her.
Daisy, which is one of the main characters in this book, is such a likeable girl. Even with her problems, being sent away from home, she still remains positive considering what she has been through. Her connection with her cousins is incredible, Edmond in particular, their love is forbidden. But this is the war… so does that really matter?
I am guilty of getting emotionally attached to the characters in this book, Piper is my favourite person ever, shes such an adorable innocent soul, you can’t help but fall in love with her.
As the book progresses, you get put through a whirlwind of different feelings; Love, Excitement, Grief and most importantly, Delighted.
This is the first book of it’s kind I’ve read, with it being based around a War, it wouldn’t be my usual go to read. However, I’ve now read this book twice and loved it the second time round too!
This is my first time writing a review on a book, hopefully I’ve done a semi-decent job of it 🙂
