“I think and think and think, I’ve thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it.”
I just started reading this book and already a quote has struck me. This one really made me take notice, since I have a bad habit of thinking too much. Whenever my boyfriend asks me what I’m doing and I say “thinking”, he automatically responds with “Uh oh.”
I over-analyze everything and I think of the worst possible outcomes over and over again. Whenever I am in a bad mood to begin with this habit becomes extreme and really intensifies my negative state.
Other initial thoughts:
I like it! The style is different. The main character is a 9 year-old boy who comes across as exceptionally intelligent. His way of analyzing things and perceiving the world is remarkable and yet, at the same time, he still has the naivety and confusion of a young child. It is a very fresh and intriguing perspective, so I’m interested to see where this book goes. I’ll post a full review once I’m finished.
Sorry for the somewhat short and unpolished post. I have a terrible migraine and was working on a different post for today, but it took too long and I feel like death so I’m saving it for tomorrow, along with a review of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Edit: You now can find my review of this book HERE.
