My Rating : 3/5

Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him. 
Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister’s recent death. When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself—a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who’s not such a freak after all. And it’s only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink. 

But does forever has a built-in ending ? 

I have mixed feeling about this book. its like we're in a love-hate relationship. Everyone mostly gave this a rating of 4/4.5/5 but here I am with a 3 stars rating. There are times where I really enjoyed this. I enjoyed Finch and Violet's conversation, thoughts and adventure. Other times though, i was totally clueless. Okay, i was mostly clueless actually.

So, Finch. Honestly, I dont get him. I dont know what his problem is with sleeps and why he did all those things he did. I dont get the deal between him and his father. I dont get him AT ALL. I need explanation.

I dont know what is wrong with me, but I didnt cry. Not a single shed of tears. The emotion is there but it was very fleeting that I almost did not realize it was there. i think its been a long time since I cried over fictional characters. I guess I need to get myself fix.
