CHARACTERS I Have Lost My Way

I Have Lost My Way

Ay back to who they're supposed to beTold over the course of a single day from three different perspectives Gayle Forman's newest novel about the power of friendship and being true to who you are is filled with the elegant prose that her fans have come to know and lov I really liked this the characters were so deep and wonderful and there s some great representation too The one thing is that I wish it was a little longer It didn t uite seem resolved at the end everything just felt way too open for my liking Maybe just an extra 20 30 pages at the end or an epilogue haha

A powerful display of empathy and friendship from the #1 New York Times Bestselling author of If I StayAround the time that Freya loses her voice while recording her debut album Harun is making plans to run away from home to find the boy that he loves and Nathaniel is They may be complete strangers with different lives and different problems but there in that examination room they are measuring sadness the same way They are measuring it in loss I m writing this review immediately after finishing because I am on such an emotional high right now I thought this was such a beautiful sad sweet bookTo be honest I reuested an arc of I Have Lost My Way only because I ve liked some books by Gayle Forman in the past But that was it The blurb hadn t particularly grabbed my interest and I was thinking I could just put it aside if it didn t work for me Instead I was completely captivatedThere s one big thing I didn t like and I ll get to that in a second But first I d like to talk about all the emotions this intricate character study made me feel You can tell instantly that the book is written by an experienced author who knows how to craft a perfect scene and convey emotions through showing rather than telling Forman uses an extremely compelling build up to frame the strange and fateful meeting between three very different teens Freya Harun and Nathaniel in NYC s Central ParkThe story takes place over the course of one day but is broken up with flashbacks that paint in the backgrounds of the three characters Each has as the title suggests lost their way and the author explores how maybe with the help of one another they can get back on the right path It is a novel told in uiet intimate details and in moments between characters Hope and uplifting sentiments battle it out with pain and loss making for a bittersweet mixThree very interesting stories are woven together here Freya is an almost famous teen singer who for reasons unknown has lost her voice She is the product of an Ethiopian father and a white Jewish mother and we soon see how her relationship with her father has affected her life goals and especially the relationship between her and her sister Sabrina I adored the complexity of their relationship and discovering what happened between themHarun is gay and Muslim struggling to come out to his parents His refusal to do so has led to his boyfriend James described as dark skinned breaking up with him I was shipping these two so hard and it broke my heart again and again when obstacles tore them apart There was also some interesting discussion of race and Islam in Harun s chapters specifically being Muslim in post 911 New York CityAt first I wondered if Nathaniel would be noticeably less interesting than the other two characters but as his story is gradually revealed I realised that wasn t true at all His background carries the most mystery and we are left to ponder what has left him with only one eye hungry and out of sorts in New York City The story of his strange childlike father who always needed to be taken care of is fascinating and sad As is his father s insistence on it just being the two of them like Frodo and Sam Was this how Frodo felt when Gollum finally fell into Mount Doom destroying the ring relieving him once and for all of the beautiful terrible burden The one thing I didn t like was the one day romance that developed There s so much to this book that I was able to overlook it but it was completely unnecessary It s not instalove exactly but their meeting is so overwritten and purple that one would be forgiven for calling it thatBut you know I just don t care that much I thought this book was great It was difficult to pull myself away from the characters lives and return to reality I Have Lost My Way is not easy or neat but that s okay it s a stronger book for being messy and complex And I really appreciated the realistically diverse portrait of New York CityBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube
