Colleen Hoover certainly knows how to make her readers feel a lot, while also making us reflect about certain patterns and behaviors. I never thought a fiction novel would bring me such a feeling of internal growth when I finished reading it. Absolutely brilliant, poignant, but brilliant.
The book came in perfect condition, for that I will rate 3 stars.
Being a fan of romantic books, I was really excited to read this one. Other than the dull writing and the wobbly plot, what really got me was how Hoover seems to romanticize domestic violence, despite having been a victim of it. I kept reading til the end hoping for a twist to make up for the rest, alas it never came. I think it's very dangerous for young girls especially to read and be inspired by such a story, wouldn't recommend to any ages.
I recommend reading this book because it deals with a very important topic. It talks about things that could happen to everyone. But still I didn’t enjoyed it. I found it very boring and because of booktok I already knew the whole plot so no surprise. I cry at every single book I read but I did not for this one.
I understand how some could see that warning readers about the domestic abuses in this book could “spoil” the fun. But to others dealing with traumas and CPTSD, it SHOULD CLEARLY be mentioned. I don’t know how good or bad the book is, I’m sure it really well written, but I just can’t read it, and I’m grateful to Amazon for refunding me.
this book is trash , the writing style is bad, and it is a romanticization of abusive relationships. The plot is boring I would advise you to skip this one and the other works of the author. Plus her son was accused of (g)rape and she tried to silence the victim and with the kind of book she writes you can tell that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree
The 2000s have seen a wave of books quite successful, mostly well-written and in which the main character is a young lady. The plots in these works deal, almost always with said young lady and her very troubled relationship with men. Think of "Gone girl", "The Girl on a Train", the Sally Rooney's opuses and now Colleen Hoover's books, only to name only a few of the most successful ones. And yes, all these books are written also by young ladies. "It Ends with Us" belongs by and large to that category of short-ish tales crowded with middle-class and screamingly urbanite characters, all well-educated, well-spoken and professional; permanently busy - at work and also with worthy hobbies (or "causes") -, and all very good or very bad - yet seldom human - whose stories make for a good read. "It Ends..." is quite short, almost a novella, but has been bloated into a "normal-sized" book by means of a large font and smaller pages - it happens a lot these days. As I said above, the book makes for a good read, at times actually gripping, but it never becomes a major, never mind transcendental, experience. It fails to leave in the reader the unequivocal flavor of really good literature due to several reasons. First, to these eyes is that there are way too many coincidences for such a short book - there're only coincidences in the plot. Without spoiling anything: the main character, our heroine, has a love story at a young age. It ends abruptly and when she has a new boyfriend they go to dinner and the chef of the restaurant is her previous lover; a character opens a business and someone comes looking for a job, and this someone happens to be the sister of a key character we've been introduced two pages before. And so forth. At some point, the reader has the sensation of being in a parallel (and impossible) universe, it's all way too neat and schematic. Also, the book has too much dialogue (and phone texting - the sign of these times), so much that at parts the text seems like a draft for a movie screenplay and the reader does't have time to enjoy the parts of good prose. It doesn't help that the characters are always in motion, (even while talking to each other): coming or going, buying, eating, cleaning an apartment and shopping; there's little time for pause or reflection. Again without spoiling anything, the core of the book deals with domestic abuse and this is, by far, the best part. The scenes that deal with the violence are very well written, some of the best in recent publishing about that horrific plague, and all told in a very well-handled first-person voice. In conclusion, a very short book that can be read in one sit. A pleasant and easy read? Without a doubt. Worthy, transcendent literature? Not in the least.
I realize I am in the tiny minority of people who just don't get it with this book. It's just OK.
The author, IMO, actually did a stellar job of helping others to understand the mindset of some victims of domestic abuse. Having been in an abusive relationship myself, I can tell you that chances are pretty good that you may still love them with all your heart when you leave them. It's because you still love the person you fell in love with before the violence began. With violence removed, they might still be great but that's not your reality anymore. As a smart woman (my mom!) said, you may both love each other truly and be soul mates, but that doesn't mean that you're good for each other. So you can tell yourself "But I love him!", but in the end that doesn't really matter because you're not good together. I'm so glad that I'm not in that roller coaster type of relationship where the highs are really high but the lows are really low. I'm glad I freed myself so I could eventualy find my husband and the beautiful life we've built with a tender, nuturing love. So I think the author's depiction of some abusive relationships was spot on.
Unfortunately, I found the writing a bit sophmoric and some parts of the story were just completely unbelievable. For instance, Lily tells Ryle's sister that she is pregnant and Ryle has been phsically assaulting her. Ryle's sister says oh no, and within seconds pulls Lily into her bedroom to give her maternity clothes and plan a baby shower. Come on, his sister is going to be pretty upset and distraught to find out her brother is like this and likely would need a few minutes to process this. Highly unlikely to be planning a baby shower in literally minutes after this awful news.
At one point, Lily says that had she known Atlas still loved her, she would never have been with Ryle in the first place. That's not what Lily said earlier in the book. She put forth then that Ryle, not Atlas was the one for her. I give the author a lot of credit for helping others to understand why women may initially stay after abuse begins, but in all other areas of the story I felt that it read like a play written by a high schooler. Sorry to differ in opinion.
