Broken by Nicola Haken
April 26, 2016
This isn't the only Nicola book that I am in love with, but it's the most recent so I thought I would start here. When I read this book here were so many moments that I had to just put it down and think about what the characters were going through, how their lives must be so difficult having to endure what they did.
To see two people falling for each other but having to cope with the devastating effects of mental health problems was interesting...and soul destroying! I so felt for both characters...but James...I just wanted to hold him and never let him go. To see what he went through on a daily basis, just trying to cope with the the basics, that was such an eye opening experience. To see how he turned from everyone around him and felt alone even though he wasn't made me want to help him so badly.
I'm not going to say any more about the story because I hate it when people give the whole thing away when talking about it. I will just say that this is one of the most beautiful stories I think I have read. I mean even though the subject matter was difficult and very dark at times, there were moments of light that shone through and showed the beauty of Nicola's words.
I think everyone should read this story. It is intense and tragic, but beautiful and romantic at the same time. It's a story of love conquering over everything, and who doesn't love stories like that?
