I’ll Give You The Sun Book Review


This book was okay. It was neither good nor bad. For me, it was just okay. I think that I probably read this book when I wasn’t in the mood for a book like that so I’m thinking of trying to read this book again in the future to see if I like it more then. The writing style was really clever and I liked how the author used colours and animals to describe people and what Noah sees in his everyday life. I thought it was also really clever how the perspective change had a title throughout the whole story and how that interlinked into the story. Another good thing about how it was written is that each chapter is in the perspective of a different twin, Noah telling the story at the age of thirteen to fourteen and Jude telling the story at the age of sixteen. However, I didn’t like the way it was written with everything being in the present tense.

I liked the relationship between Noah and Jude as they have such a nice bond. Even through the hard times, they still manage to get along which I really enjoyed reading about. I also really liked Brian as he was so nice and enjoyed introducing other people to his hobbies which made me like his character. He was there for Noah when he needed him which was really sweet. Oscar was really cool and I liked his relationship with Jude as they get along so easily.

I enjoyed how each of these people are linked in a lot of different ways. The way that they were linked I didn’t see coming and it made the story more interesting as well.

Therefore, I liked this book but I think that the writing of it could’ve been better. I also think that the way the story was written could’ve been better. For me, when I read this book, I started reading but then got a bit bored, but a day later I felt like I needed to know what was going to happen next to the characters. Due to this, I gave the book 3/5 stars. I will read this book again in the future and give it another chance as I think I just picked it up at the wrong time.

What did you think of this book? Did you enjoy it more than I did? Do you think I should give it another chance? Please let me know in the comments as I’m interested to read your opinions on the book.
