Maybe in Another Life
When I first read the blurb for Maybe in Another Life I was so intrigued! I had never heard or seen a premise like it and wanted to read it immediately. Then when I received it, I went on the Towny trip and it got left at home. *cue sad face*
Well I'm home now and early yesterday afternoon I felt like reading and decided to pick this up for a quick squiz. Well, you know how it is... four hours later I was reading the last page completely satisfied.
The book follows twenty-nine year old Hannah Martin, and the consequence of a small decision made in her first night back in New York. Hannah has to decide whether to go home with her best friend, or to go home with her ex-boyfriend. Two very different results come from her choice, and every second chapter shows the way her life ends up as a result of them both. Hannah begins to live two very different lives in the two parallel universes, but will she still end up with the same guy? Is there such thing as fate or destiny, or do we have many?
Maybe in Another Life was such a unique and interesting story and I loved each moment! I really couldn't tell you which Hannah, or world I preferred more, and I became more and more hooked the deeper I got into the book. I really enjoyed the characters, and the relationships that developed. I adored Hannah and Gabby's friendship, and could really relate to what it's like to have found a soul mate best friend. I found the story flowed extremely well, and I didn't once get muddled or lost in the different worlds. I was also so happy in the way the story wrapped up, and sobbed emotionally all the way through. Ask my Mum, she was on the couch next to me!
