“and I know there are many more presents to live. I understand you can be free. I understand that the way you stop time is by stopping being ruled by it. I am no longer drowning in my past, or fearful of my future. How can I be?
This book. Wow. Just wow. Incredible. The plot was phenomenal and I was hooked from page one. But not only the plot- the plot worked beautifully alongside the rich characters. Tom was a beautifully broken and fragile character and he went through one of the best character developments I’ve read in a while. His inner monologue was comforting and his bits of insight about humanity were thought-provoking. The passing of time scares everyone. Like the quote above, we are all ruled by it even if we aren’t semi-immortal beings.
This book is being put on my shelf as one that I will come back to time and time again (no pun intended).
