How much more living could there be in each day?,

This review is from: Thaw (Kindle Edition)
This isn't a typical book choice for me. I guess the apparent darkness of the subject matter created the presumption that it would just end in a stereotypical happy ending. Initially, I wasn't immersed in the style of a diary - it felt too much like the writing was directed at a reader rather than the imaginary being you write to in a diary. But it didn't take long to be captured in the flow - seeing what Ruth sees, and the subtle and natural metaphors of her view of her experience. I felt with her. I liked how the necessary questions we all could be asking ourselves in order to define a more 'lived' life were there to contemplate if I wanted them, or I could just ease in to her story. In finishing a book, I always consider whether the characters live on for me, and Ruth and Red certainly do.
