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.”

Never Never (Part 3) by Colleen Hoover, Tarryn Fisher
Never Never: Part Three of Three - Colleen Hoover,Tarryn Fisher

Took me a while to read this book in its entirety since it was broken up into segments and I'd read other things in between them. But I loved this book. Loved the relationship between Silas and Charlie. Loved that they kept relearning each other over and over. Loved how it showed us we are capable of change and to focus on the things that really matter. I listened to the audio version, and both narrators gave an excellent performance. Five stars.

Marrow by Tarryn Fisher
Marrow - Tarryn Fisher

This was really dark, even more so than her other novel, Mud Vein. I nearly set it down, but ultimately the message was so powerful that I had to go back and finish it.

 

Marrow is about an eighteen year old girl named Margo who lives in a neighbourhood called the Bone. She lives with her mother who speaks to her as little as possible, certainly not in the way that a mother should, instead choosing to communicate with her via notes. Margo feels like she’s invisible, but things begin to change when she develops a friendship with her disabled neighbour, Judah. Like most Tarryn Fisher novels this is a complex tale, dripping with metaphor and symbolism that I wouldn’t want to ruin by going into any further depth, so I’ll leave it there.

 

This book tackled themes such as abuse, addiction and prostitution, but it never felt like it was too much. There were several scenes that were harrowing, but I felt these were needed for a couple of reasons. Firstly it gave credence to why Margo behaved as she did and secondly it highlighted how the author feels about the way we refuse to confront the reality of the horror that goes on in the world. Of course those scenes were there to shock, but that’s what the author felt was needed to convey the message.

 

Every step that Margo took felt like it was laced with oppression. The setting and the description all complemented the atmosphere the author wanted to establish. Even when Margo entered a new setting it was like the oppression followed her. 

 

I hope you’ve all gotten the idea that this isn’t a light read, but a very important one that I hope has the impact it was created to make.
