‘Opposite of Always’ by Justin A. Reynolds

3/5

Review:

I am not too sure how I feel about this book. I’ve landed on meh. First things first, the tone and pace of this book is entertaining and fun. I started this and blew threw the first 100 pages.

I continued this on my journey to Brighton and knew I would speed through it. So in the beginning, you are introduced to the main protagonist, Jack. You love Jack, you laugh with Jack, you absolutely relate with Jack but want to tell him to wake tf up.

I actually really enjoyed the first 300 pages of this book. I laughed and nearly cried because Jack is bae. One thing I absolutely adored about this book, the friendships. The friendships! I loved their trio, I hated the unrequited love on both sides. That’s all i’m going to say.

But when you have to go through the unexplained reliving of Jack’s life 4 times. Things start to drag. The remaining 150 pages became a bit of a bore. I was ready to skip to the end frankly.

I landed on 3 because I definitely would not read again, but for the most part, this book was actually enjoyable. The ending was a drag, I was ready to skip to the end.

Synopsis:

When Jack and Kate meet at a party, bonding until sunrise over their mutual love of Froot Loops and their favourite flicks, Jack knows he’s falling—hard. Soon she’s meeting his best friends, Jillian and Franny, and Kate wins them over as easily as she did Jack.

But then Kate dies. And their story should end there.

Yet Kate’s death sends Jack back to the beginning, the moment they first meet, and Kate’s there again. Healthy, happy, and charming as ever. Jack isn’t sure if he’s losing his mind.

Still, if he has a chance to prevent Kate’s death, he’ll take it. Even if that means believing in time travel. However, Jack will learn that his actions are not without consequences. And when one choice turns deadly for someone else close to him, he has to figure out what he’s willing to do to save the people he loves.
