Congratulations I look forward to your next book.
I adored Jade and Nick and enjoyed listening to their thoughts, fears and take on life. This is a simple story with complex layers of meaning. Jade is a guiding light for Nick through his dark days, while Nick shows Jade the value of love. However, it is uncertain if Jade will overcome obstacles that made her fear commitment to Nick.
Nick suffers from mental illness, and it is wonderful to see how this is written as part of Nick’s lovely character. Initially, Jade’s kindness anchors Nick.
‘Do a kindness for someone else feels good doesn’t it.’
There is a strong message of kindness and tolerance in every chapter. I think the book will resonate with everyone and show how maybe we all suffer symptoms of mental illness at some point in our lives, but some people have a specific sensitivity. And it is a sensitivity that we must value as part of someone’s character!
‘Depression lies to you. It tells you things that aren’t true,’ explains Jade, providing an insight into how thoughts twist in the vulnerable. These simple words connect and guide Nick, and I know they will guide others.
The novel is clever and explores how relationships develop and define us. ‘Something Like Happy’ also shows us how a natural environment supports wellbeing, along with positive interactions and a purpose in life.
You have to read the book to find out what ‘Something Like Happy’ means.
This book in Times is hard to read because of the nature of the storyline. But I promise you that you will take these characters into your heart and you will want to go on this journey with them. Routing for them along the way. The message of hope is clear throughout this book. I think it’s an important book everyone should read.
The story starts with Nick about to take his own life and Jade finds him, making the decision to help him by meeting up with him every Saturday to do something from her 'Happy List'. He doesn't realise that she has lost someone close to her due to suicide and she blames herself for that.
It's a great novel focusing on a normal person and struggles with depression and suicidal thoughts. The pace was good, I found myself unable to put the book down because I wanted to see how it ended and I really enjoyed it.
It’s the story of Nick and Jade. He’s suffering with poor mental health and she’s dealt with mental health issues in the past. They met in the most unconventional way and we learn more about their lives as the story unfolds.
Very well written, you are able to bring the characters and places to life in your head with the vivid descriptions.
It was difficult to put down as I was keen to see how the plot developed. The ending wasn’t predictable which makes a refreshing change.
