    The writing style is gorgeous and I enjoyed the myriad of themes the author explored in the book, but the plot itself felt too insubstantial and hollow for my liking. In the frame story, things would just...happen for no discernible reason.

    Also, I wasn’t in love with any of the characters – the narrator and supporting cast have the collective personality of wallpaper paste, to be perfectly honest. I also felt like this book was trying to juggle too many things, and wished the author stuck with a central idea and explored it in-depth rather than attempting to be profound in all manner of topics.

    Before You Go eBook õ Before You MOBI :È before pdf, Before You download, Before You GoBefore You Go PDFEPUBI think the overarching idea of this book is a phenomenal one, but overall, I found this story hard to follow. This book started off pretty slow and I thought the main character was hard to connect with. The writing was great, and I would love to see this author put out more books.

    Thanks so much to Netgalley and Harper Collins for this Advanced Reader's Copy!

    Before You Go eBook õ Before You MOBI :È before pdf, Before You download, Before You GoBefore You Go PDFEPUBThis is a really beautiful book that explores the human condition and human nature in its many forms. It explores themes of loneliness, yearning to connect, the cost of happiness. The story is very imaginative and moving but not cheesy. I read one review that called it profound and yet playful and those two words,

    Before You Go eBook õ Before You MOBI :È before pdf, Before You download, Before You GoBefore You Go PDFEPUBBefore You Go is a coming of age fiction by Tommy Butler. It has a very unique set up. The book discusses life, finding its purpose, death, dealing with pain and a lot more issues of the entire existence of human beings. 

    We've been lately hearing a lot about the increased feeling of loneliness among people, depression, suicidal thoughts and suicides. This wonderful book is an answer to many questions. The author has an amazing philosophy which he describes through the story of Elliot Chance. 

    The story starts from the making of mankind where the manufacturers leave a void in the hearts of humans by mistake. It is that emptiness that makes them feel incomplete, lost and miserable.
    Elliot is a young boy, who feels lost in this world. He thinks that he doesn't belong here and attempts to leave

    Before You Go eBook õ Before You MOBI :È before pdf, Before You download, Before You GoBefore You Go PDFEPUBAnother great debut for 2020 (As crazy as this year has been). Fair warning, this book hits all the emotions... at least in my opinion.

    But why this book needs to be read: the important lessons and eye-opening moments it brings to the reader's attention. When you go through the many stages of Elliot's life, you totally empathize with this protagonist. Being a child, full of wonder and awe to only have it ripped away by adult figures. In young adolescence, fumbling your way through life and seeing what sticks and stays. And during those times, meeting and being with some of the most crucial people to the rest of your life. This is the part of the story (his early twenties to late twenties) that the bulk of the story focuses on, which I think was great. It was important to see his youth to understand him. But choosing this period of time for a characte

    What do you say about a book like BEFORE YOU GO? It is one of those rare novels that push the boundaries of how you perceive our existence. It explores so many facets of human emotions while looking at the choices we make.

    What I found most compelling about this story is the realness and the grit within the prose. Elliot’s life and his view on it were never once sugar-coated. The way he lived within the book felt authentic to what we all experience on some level. Then you add into the narrative a hint of the great beyond with the designers and how they created us all with a hole near our hearts so that we would want to leave earth when it was our time. Somehow, it all works well.

    Before You Go eBook õ Before You MOBI :È before pdf, Before You download, Before You GoBefore You Go PDFEPUBTommy Butler's first novel is ambitious and provocative. It follows the life of Elliot Chance from childhood when he first notices a void or hole in his heart until life's end. While it's Elliot's story we soon realize that he's reflecting on the scope of humanity and the ways in which many people go through life without ever considering their true purpose or the ways of hum

    Before You Go eBook õ Before You MOBI :È before pdf, Before You download, Before You GoBefore You Go PDFEPUBI always feel kind of bad when I get litfic ARCs, because I feel like I have to read/review them, and I know I'm going to write some version of well written but not for me.

    I had higher than average hopes for this one, because it did have speculative elements, and if it had leaned into just being SF/F I think it could have been something really enjoyable. As it was, I spent the whole time being frustrated that it wasn't...more.

    This is probably someone's cup of tea. It was well written. It wasn't really for me.
