Mia suddenly finds herself outside her body at the roadside, watching the paramedics give her life saving treatment for her multiple injuries; she is then able to follow herself to the hospital. She moves around the hospital like a real, but invisible, person watching what goes on in the operating theatre, visiting room and intensive care. She gets the sense that it is up to her to make the choice between staying or going, and we follow her emotional journey as she observes her visitors and thinks back on events in her life.
Despite the subject matter, this is a gentle read in a flowing style that is flawlessly edited - but the fact that I kept putting it down and read three other books in between snatches of this one is indicative that it just didn't hold my attention. To be honest I found the aspects of Mia's life that she reflected back on just too ordinary and mundane. Her relationship with her boyfriend Adam was also rather, yes...boring and ordinary. I can look around me to see ordinary; in a book I want to see a spark and something special.
The fact that there is a sequel now rather gives away the ending, but after ploughing through endless stories from Mia's life, the actual ending of the book was quick and abrupt - and a bit of a cop out, if I'm honest - especially considering that my kindle was still only registering it was 78% of the way through - and I practically did a double take when I realised it was over.
I have read some reviews which suggest that the sequel is actually a better story than this, so I may well give it a go.
