The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay – *the most amount of stars I can give
This…This right here…This is the kind of story that makes you appreciate words. Makes you appreciate when nouns and verbs and adjectives are strung together to form these magical little sentences that touch your heart and you don’t even know they’re doing it until you’re so sucked into the story you can’t put it down and 4 hours have gone by and you haven’t eaten or moved or even blinked because you couldn’t possibly stop.
That’s what this book did. It makes you feel it all. Every word. Every character. Every scene. Every heartbreak. Every SINGLE THING.
It was captivating, heartbreaking, haunting, romantic, hypnotizing, ballsy, antsy, broken, and now a definite new favorite of mine. The characters were probably the most realistic I have ever come across and in the course of some 400 odd pages broke my heart and put it back together again.
“When you look at her what do you feel?… Joy, fear, frustration, longing, friendship, anger, need, despair, love, lust?”
“All of it.”
I was utterly swept away by its power and there was not one rushed moment, not one wasted scene. The slow build of the story just contributed to such a powerful, amazing ending. And it had quite possibly THE MOST AMAZING ENDING TO A STORY I HAVE EVER READ. The two words it ended on? The pure epitome of brilliance. Perfection.
I wouldn’t have changed a single thing. ANYONE AND EVERYONE needs to pick up this book. I cannot stress enough how much I LOVED IT and what a beautiful tale about forgiveness, love, and second chances it was.
