Book Review: All The Bright Places

All The Bright Places Review

February was a good book month for me!  I read Eleanor & Park and this one: All The Bright Places.  All The Bright Places started out a little slow for me.  The book alternates characters and between chapters: the main characters Theodore Finch and Violet Markey.  Both are incredibly unique.  Yes, this is another teen lit love story but you can’t help but fall in love with these two.

Violet & “Finch”, as he’s known, are the unlikely couple.  Finch has some issues at home, doesn’t really fit in, and is obsessed with death.  Violet can’t wait to escape high school and looks forward to graduation.  Time seems to crawl by for Violet because she is sort-of stuck in the middle of grief from a car accident she was involved in.
