The invisible life of Addie LaRue
In the recent years when I've learnt the art of reading without a physical book, I've earned the perk of highlighting and bookmarking pages without soiling them; a way to get back to the the crux and relish. Addie, unfortunately is the book I've highlighted way too much and a revisit would equal a reread (gladly) !
The story of a girl, who lived in a small town and wanted freedom. Her wish was granted, but only at a cost. She will live from moment to moment without belonging to a single one! Freedom comes when there's no belonging, no memory; even to your own name. She belongs to noone and nowhere and is remembered by none. Except, one fine day she meets someone who she thinks is enough, because maybe he remembers...
Do we ever know what we really want and yet how stubborn can we get? Are we prepared to pay its price? Can something that we thought would be a miracle turn into a lifetime of mistake? But then, can two mistakes create a miracle again? Can the universe ever err? And in the end, is there an escape door to deals?
We use words so loosely that they lose meaning. The journey of a lifetime could change by using seemingly harmless words in the most harmful places! A beautiful word play and a storehouse of personifications! If anything, pick up this book to bask in the beauty of every word coming alive! A story worth a savour!
