Well, I haven't done a tip in about i don't know half a year//// I miss it.
Anyway, Impulse everybody(:
I give it a three out of five stars and you'll see why.
First, when you see it, it is super thick and intimidating!! Fear not my friends, the 666 (questionable?) page book isn't that long of a read. You see, each page of the book is written like a poem. Only about eighty words a page, it balances out to be the size of any other book. The poem se-up it a genius, creative affect. If you get around to reading it, read it as you would poetry. Doing this affects it in so many ways, and brings beauty to each and every word.
The plot of the book:
Aspen springs, an ordinary psychiatric hospital, is the arrival of three teens after they attempt but fail "the deed".
You read from each characters perspective, a few pages in a row, in a steady pattern.
Vanessa. A beautiful, sweet, intelligent girl that everyone falls in love with, that yet is called by her blades day to day to cope with life.
Tony, suffering a painful childhood, turns to pills to cope with his life. He questions his sexuality after going through many events a child should not.
Conner, who appears to have the perfect life to any outsider. Beyond those lenses, we find a boy who shaken by life, parents, and himself.
All of these characters are brought together by their tragic incidents, and bond in ways they would've imagined before they stepped through the automatic doors. They battle demons from their past and try to go from level to level before they go home and start life again.
Beautifully written. I hung on every word, just like poetry, and the pauses perfectly reflect the mind of each patient. Metaphorically genius and great ideas on on defeating demons, moving on, forgiving, romance, and acting on your impulse.
I'd say definitely worth the read, but prepare for a shocking ending that may be a tad bit disappointing.
Read on, my friends.
