I think its a nice short story that's definitely worth checking out. It made me feel something i cant describe its a good book.

Found the author over describes everything, which seemed excessive and dull. Nothing really happened, besides the vision in the beginning until about 100 pages in when you begin to understand where the book was going and it became easy to predict the possible outcomes. Did not grab me unfortunately and I didn't like the book

I really enjoyed this book even though it was different than what I expected (in a good way). The concept of this story really made me think about this situation after closing the book. The busyness of the main characters could be a bit annoying at times, but, overall, the story was full of love and loyalty.

I kind of feel like leaving my review at "this is a book," but I won't.
This book definitely reinforced my "not making plans" life style. The writing of the repeated scene (the same dialogue but with different mind sets/context) was done really well. The book does make you think about your feelings/emotions and how you process things. All-in-all I'd give this a solid Okay.

This is a book that I feel like everyone will love, and in that vein, I feel like it was written for me. I knew nothing about it going in, and I think that's right for this novel; let it sweep you away and wreck your emotions.

Love love love this book! The romance part was intertwined cleverly with a deep female friendship. The ending turned out quite different from what I expected!

Beautifully written story about friendship, love and loss. It gave me all the feels and I couldn't put it down till the very end.

I thought this book was going to be a silly light little read when I started it. It sure took a turn! It ended up being really emotional and kind of amazing.

One of the good ones. Well written, engaging characters, excellent insights about life. Much more than just your standard romance novel, which maybe it isn't.

NOT A ROMANCE!!! Get your tissues ready instead and you'll be fine. I really loved it, despite the bait-and-switch.

He shakes his head. "You mistake love. You think it has to have a future in order to matter, but it doesn't. It's the only thing that does not need to become at all. It matters only insofar as it exists. Here. Now. Love doesn't require a future."
