“One of the plainest truths about both towns and individuals is that they usually don’t turn into what we tell them to be, but what they are told they are.”
Before starting this book I honestly can say I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I just remembered seeing this book a lot and requested at my local library. When the book finally because available I decided to just dive in and see for myself why all the high reviews. Believe me when I say this book exceeded all my expectations. ‘Beartown’ is deep; it has some heavy topics from peer pressure, to rape, to sexuality preference, to personal integrity, this book has it all and it will make you feel and think a lot.
“The very worst events in life have that effect on a family: we always remember, more sharply than anything else, the last happy moments before everything fell apart.”
I had so many emotions while reading this book. At first I wasn’t so sure with so many characters to follow. However; the narrator did an amazing job expressing all the emotions and I found myself feeling so much. I was angry, I was sad, I was excited and happy but most of all I felt pain so much pain for some characters. This book completely moved me and I truly enjoyed every second of it.
“Everyone has a thousand wishes before a tragedy, but just one afterward.”
I don’t really know exactly how I found this new author but I had to find out what the fuzz was about. I honestly can’t even begin to describe how amazing this book was. The story is told on a third person and there’s so many characters you can’t helped having so many feels for. This book is about a small town with a foundation based on the hockey 🏒 sport. One single night will change the entire town. Some families & friendships will be broken. There’s some characters I can’t even 😑 but most of them I loved haha. The book was real and raw and a roller-coaster full of emotions.
‘Beartown’ is a book that I highly recommend to everyone. This book has made it’s mark on me, which are usually my favorite kinds of books; one that I will not be forgetting any time soon and will think about it for a very long time.
“Hate can be a deeply stimulating emotion. The world becomes easier to understand and much less terrifying if you divide everything and everyone into friends and enemies, we and they, good and evil.”
I listened to the audio-book via my library overdrive app.
