FOREVER, INTERRUPTED
BY, TAYLOR JENKINS REID

What can I say? But I hope everyone meets a Ben in life. May we all find the one, meet the one and marry the one.
Your heart will break for Elise and Ben's mom Susan throughout this book.
Accidents happen in real life, everyone needs to count their blessings and tell the people they love them as much as they can.
Taylor, you have a writing style like no other
The way you go back and forth in chapters from past to present is remarkable.
I look forward to every book you write in the future.
Great book

Forever, Interrupted: A Novel is a very sad book. One can only read about death for so long but this is an entire book. Too much sad. A rating of three stars was given here because the story went no where. ( )

Elsie Porter meets the love of her life, gets married and becomes a widow in the span of six months. The book switches back and forth between present day and when Elsie first meets her husband. You get to see them fall in love, get married and contrast that with the days following Ben's death. I loved the honesty of this book, the humor and the tears. I could have easily read it in one sitting but my back had other plans. I look forward to more from this author.

Received from NetGalley. ( )

I decided for my first Taylor Jenkins Reid book that I would start with her debut. I am so happy with my decision. I wanted to see how her writing progressed and I wanted to start with her first book. I have nothing else to compare this one to so I get an unbiased opinion on this one, so to speak. I fell in love with her writing. I have no idea how she made me care for characters within the first chapter but she did. Her writing is beautiful and I know that it has developed even more over time. This story was heartbreaking and beautiful. Surprisingly, what made me tear up in this book, in addition to the main characters story, was Mr. Callahan. I loved the characters. I really enjoyed being able to see how Ben and Elsie's relationship developed through flashbacks that were triggered by something that was happening on the present timeline. Really the only complaint that I had with this story was the insta-love factor. Normally, I don't like insta-love and will knock off a star but it just didn't bother me as much in this one. Also, while reading this book I found out that it is being adapted into a movie. So, I am looking forward to seeing that. I will definitely be reading all of her books. She is one of my new favorite authors! ( )

Elsie Porter is a librarian, estranged from her birth family, content to have the excitement in her life come from her friend Ana's wildly unpredictable dating habits. It's a quiet life, and she's happy with that.

Then on the first day of the new year, Elsie goes out to pick up a pizza for supper, and meets Ben Ross. They are instantly taken with each other, and exchange phone numbers. It's the start of a whirlwind courtship.

Six months later, Ben is dead.

In alternating chapters, we learn Elsie's story of their romance, and Elsie's story of Ben's sudden, pointless death in a traffic accident, and adjusting to his loss. Joy alternates with grief, and Elsie coming out of her shell to build a future with Ben alternates with her collapse into grief and her slow climb out of it.

Ana has trouble adjusting to Elsie Ben, but she's a true friend, and is still there when Ben dies, to support her friend. But Elsie is extreme in her grief, and it's hard for Ana to bear up under the strain. Elsie needs more help than Ana can give.

Help arrives, from a totally unexpected direction.

This is a compelling and moving story, and I was especially drawn to the way Elsie is initially very isolated, and gradually becomes more confident, more connected to those around her, more aware of herself as someone with something positive to contribute. The new Elsie is someone better and stronger than the old Elsie, but the capacity was always there.

Recommended.

I received a free electronic galley from the publisher via NetGalley. ( )
