“You can only give your heart away once, after that, everything else will chase your first love.”
Heart-wrenching to the core. I cried buckets over this book, the feeling was highly proportional to the feeling of break-up. I literally needed a new heart because my current heart seemed to stop functioning because of all the unwanted emotions that I have been having. This book my friends will shred your heart into unrecognizable state, then pulverizeit after and let it be blown with the wind knowing for sure it will never be the same again.
Crying-spree. I was crying my hearts out until 3am in the morning and woke up with puffy eyes. This book is just so packed with all the story that will get you hooked up to the very end. Though it is not as long as other novels, but all the important details are there perfectly written. I highly commend Tarryn Fisher’s writing skills, it was brilliant. This will definitely not be the last book that I will read of her. But I cannot jump immediately to the second book Dirty Red because I am still too emotional over The Opportunist.
Why does a great love have to be so complicated? What I liked most about this book is the fact that it depicts a figment of reality. It says that not everything is meant to happen, not everything will end up the way we planned it in our heads. But fate has its funny way, even ridiculous way of showing what might have been, and that’s how this book got me. That no matter how you resist things you thought you are better off, it will come back like a boomerang. This book tugged every heart strings, including those that I didn’t even know existed. I am so glad I have read this book, it taught me so much about life and love.
My Rating: 5/5 stars
“I think that after the first time you give your heart away, you never get it back. The rest of your life is just you pretending that you still have a heart.”
