This is not your typical story…this one might make you want to DNF even…but stick with it, because it may surprise you.  It did me.  Thank you, Tarryn Fisher, for a story that made me stop and seriously think and will also stick with me, for a while to come. 

 

This is not a romance, although it has something like romantic moments.  It's a story about seeing things that make you angry, like really angry and taking your own form of punishment out on the perpetrators.  Margo is like the Punisher. 

 

I took a half star off, mainly because I was really confused at one point, things got all crazy, and shit.  If anyone has read this, they might know where that happened at.  I had to re-listen to some sections, but all in all, her ending paragraphs in the epilogue made this story make sense, somehow. 

 

Will I read more from this Author?⇜  Hell yes, Although, I think you really have to be in the right mood to read Tarryn Fisher.

Listen to your dreams...
F*ck Love - Tarryn Fisher, Madison Seidler

 

Have you ever been affected by your dream to the point that you can't stop thinking about it all day? I certainly have.

 

Have you ever asked yourself if dreams can influence reality? Or better yet, have you ever had a dream and then have it happen in real life?

 

That's what happens to Helena. Well, sort of… 

 

About dreams.

Dreaming is one of the strangest phenomena humans experience on a daily basis and yet we all take it for granted. But what effects do our nightly journeys have on our lives?

 

Dreams exist to act out impulses suppressed in our everyday lives. The interaction of dreams and reality comes through the power of human belief. By holding an idea we find in a dream to be true, we give that idea power to affect our reality.

 

 

And something similar happened to Helena.

 

But I won’t talk about the plot. I won’t even talk about the characters. You have to go into this story completely blind.

 

About the story.
A story of forbidden love.
A story of searching and finding oneself.
A story about fighting for love while growing and changing as a human.

 

It teaches you that you can’t run away to find yourself.
It teaches you to be you.
It teaches you that you can’t control your life, only your reactions to it.
It teaches you to fight for yourself.
It teaches you that nothing worth finding is easy to find.
It teaches you to embrace the lows so that you can enjoy the highs.
It teaches you that there is no real choice in love. You cannot convince anyone to choose you.

 

It makes you laugh out loud.
It makes you cry.
It makes you angry.
It makes you hopeful.
It makes you happy.

 

Gripping.

Beautiful.

Angsty.

Painful.

Heart-wrenching.

Devastating.

Crazy.

Quirky.

Fucked-up.

Inspiring.

 

About the author.
Is there a word which is superior to the word “genius” in the English language? I looked it up but didn’t find it. Well, Tarryn Fisher is a genius (for lack of another superior term). And I’m not talking just about the story or her writing. I’m talking about her imagination, her quirky humor and her insightful observations. Her book proves it. Enough said.

 

About me.
Well, I’ll never be the same after this book. This book has changed some of my views about life. It made me pay attention to small details in our everyday lives. It made me notice things, events, behaviors, personality traits and general truths that influence our lives which we usually take for granted.

 

This book was worth every penny and every second of my time.

 

“Life is but a carousel of four seasons. Unpredictable for the most part. Happy. Unhappy. Content. Searching. Mess up the order, and they still rebound at one point or another. I’ve learned that revolution can be inward or outward. A move across the country to gain perspective. A change of heart and mind to gain sanity. But the point is to revolt when the season changes. If only to quench your thirst, revolt.”
