The first thing I have to say about this book is that if you’re looking for something to devour on the beach this summer, this might be just the thing.
Personally, I read it over the course of a very rainy few days in the North of England, but I still enjoyed it just as much.
Following the story of Maya as she falls in love with a man she’s never spoken to – a fellow commuter she sees on the train every morning – this story explores instant attraction, confusion, and fate through not only Maya’s eyes but also the eyes of her friends, and others on the train.
I really enjoyed this book. Yes, it’s an easy read, but who doesn’t love an easy read every once in a while? Personally I like to switch it up when I read, going from a heavy heartbreaker like A Little Life, to something easy like this, or How to Find Love in a Bookshop.
I’d recommend this to anyone who likes a modern fairytale, or something to sink into over a weekend – because honestly, you won’t want to put it down.
