All the Bright Places pdf Book Review
“…this heartbreaking love story about two funny, fragile, and wildly damaged high school kids named Violet and Finch is worth reading. Niven is a skillful storyteller who never patronizes her characters – or her audience.”
— Entertainment Weekly
“Many teen novels touch on similar themes, but few do it so memorably.”
—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“In her YA debut, adult author Niven creates a romance so fresh and funny. . . The journey to, through, and past tragedy is romantic and heartbreaking, as characters and readers confront darkness, joy, and the possibilities—and limits—of love in the face of mental illness.”
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
“The writing in this heartrending novel is fluid, despite the difficult topics… Finch in particular will linger in readers’ minds long after the last page is turned.”
—School Library Journal, starred review
“Ultimately, the book, with narration that alternates between Finch and Violet, becomes Violet’s story of survival and recovery, affirming the value of loving deeply, grieving openly, and carrying your light forward.”
—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“Have The Fault in Our Stars withdrawal? Pick up this heartrending novel about a girl who vows to live with purpose after bonding with a boy who plans to end his own life.”
— SELF Magazine
“It’s touching, vibrant, and an impressively honest depiction of depression.”

Reviewed in the United States on April 20, 2017
That is the best word I can use to describe this book. It, in no way, ended how I thought or hoped it would. I am a 45 year old man and I found myself in tears as I struggled to get through the last few chapters. Having dealt, and still dealing, with mental health issues, this book touched my heart in a way few books have. To the author, all I can say is thank you.
5.0 out of 5 stars So Good!
Pick this book up!

I. Am. In. Pieces. I’ve heard so many good things about this book that, after watching the Netflix movie and bawling, I decided to pick the book up. I bawled while reading too. This story hit me right where it hurts and I related to Finch all too much.
It’s a shame that some people isolated others who are dealing with mental illness because they act differently. Isn’t that a good thing? That we are all different because if we were all the same we would be boring. One quote I really liked was, “I am afraid of me.” I relate so much, just like so many others, with this quote. Sometimes your worst enemy is yourself.
Another quote I really liked was, “The problem with people is they forget that most of the time it’s the little things that count.” Sometimes we focus too much of the “bigger picture” and forget what is right in front of our eyes. Finch had so many quotable moments.
It really irritated me that when Finch “messed up” one time with Violet that his parents started treating him differently, meaner ewven after saying how much they liked him in the beginning of his and VIolet’s relationship. Yes, they want to keep their daughter safe but it is not Finch’s fault when he disappears for days or weeks.
Something else that irritated me was at the funeral when so many of the kids who bullied Finch were crying, acting all sad about his death. I do not get that kind of people. And his family. Man, did they make me mad. They didn’t understand or even try to, their own son.
Yet overall, I loved this book. This is a book I will not forget soon, if ever.
5.0 out of 5 stars This book is so beautiful. I fell in love with the characters Finch …Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 27, 2017
This book is so beautiful. I fell in love with the characters Finch and Violet, two teenagers suffering with their own issues and sadness who find each other and fall in love. Niven has done an amazing job writing such realistic, multi-layered, interesting characters. The story keeps a good pace and the pages turned quickly. The language, the conversations, the motifs (water, Virginia Woolf, suicide facts) are all beautifully written and placed.
It deals with difficult issues of loss and surviving and left me in a puddle of tears, but I would recommend this book to anyone, it gives hope to those who have suffered loss.
I read lots of books but this had such an impact I think I’ll have to have a few days of mourning before picking up another.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful story Jennifer Niven.
