#Orangeberry Book Review - The Book by Jessica Bell

The BookThe Book by Jessica Bell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When you read books as part of a book club, you tend to become critical. As you discuss and dissect, it's easy for weaknesses in a book to be highlighted. BUT there are some authors and some books who are so passionate about their craft, the reader is taken on a journey and it's not "just a book".

Jessica Bell has done this. The Book is heartwarming, and to the point. Her formatting is absolutely lovely and the little dividers between each part was what got me hooked.

I think what was unique about the story, she uses The Book to highlight marital problems, growing pains and life, in general. You want to think you're reading fiction, but so many sections appear to be more real than you would like to admit.

Some people may have issues with the way it is written, but to any parent, you find yourself mentally doing this everyday whether you jot it down or not. The story may be different but so many of the emotions are the same.

Would I recommend this read? Oh yes, definitely.

Overall assessment:
Content: 4.5/5
Editing: 4.5/5
Formatting: 5/5
Pacing: 4.5/5
Offensive content?: PG to PG13 for theme and content.

Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours. I did not receive any payment in exchange for this review nor was I obliged to write a positive one.
