Back of the Book

Sometimes discovering the truth can leave you more hopeless than believing the lies…

That’s what seventeen-year-old Sky realizes after she meets Dean Holder. A guy with a reputation that rivals her own and an uncanny ability to invoke feelings in her she’s never had before. He terrifies her and captivates her all in the span of just one encounter, and something about the way he makes her feel sparks buried memories from a past she wishes could just stay buried.

Sky struggles to keep him at a distance knowing he’s nothing but trouble, but Holder insists on learning everything about her. After finally caving to his unwavering pursuit, Sky soon finds that Holder isn’t at all who he’s been claiming to be. When the secrets he’s been keeping are finally revealed, every single facet of Sky’s life will change forever.


Review

I am not really sure how to begin a review for a book that so touched my heart, made me laugh and cry, was so exceptional, that it makes me wonder if my review is actually necessary!

New York Times Best Selling Author (of three books within 12 months); Colleen Hoover, I am in awe. Hopeless, was incredible.

Hopeless ostensibly charts the life-altering journey of 18 year-old, high school senior Sky Davis, whose home-schooled existence to date, had left her bereft of, (yet not saddened by), the nasty antics of immature teenagers, and the social and technological world including the Internet. With the exception of the movies, boy-groping, and eye-opening offerings from her feisty & irreverent neighbor Six, her experience of the real world was limited. She was beautiful, stubborn, intelligent, witty and courageous, but also undeniably broken.

Fate seemed to bring handsome and mysterious Dean (Holder) and Sky together. Her presence was able to spark both life and confusion into Holder's world. This gorgeous young man, tattooed with the word ‘Hopeless’, was anything but. In fact, his maturity, contemplative and generous nature leapt from the pages, procuring my full admiration and love. He was brave, thoughtful, passionate. He was also heart broken. Two girls he loved - he'd lost.

Prior to Holder, Sky had cocooned herself in her safe bubble of numb existence. As Holder pried open her guarded soul with his thought provoking honesty and love, more than just passion and a desire to feel, arose. Disturbing images - long and safely buried - began to surface.

This is not your typical narrative of teenage angst and woe, but a compelling, unraveling of a mystery, so unpredictable, that you will be kept guessing to the very end. It was impeccably elegant in its prose, and refreshingly unique in its tale.

Sky of Holder

"I want him to lock his arms around me and throw away the key, because this is where he belongs..."
"His presence alone works wonders for a wounded soul."
“I know by the way his existence is like a magnetic pull on my heart, that if he ever hurts me again, I'll be far from just 'fine'. I'll be broken.”

Holder to Sky
“The moment my lips touch yours, it will be your first kiss. Because if you’ve never felt anything when someone’s kissed you, then no one’s ever really kissed you. Not the way I plan on kissing you.”
"I'm not apologizing to you....because I don't want you to forgive me."
"You don't deserve words, Sky. You deserve actions."

Interspersed perfectly amidst the deeply moving story, was incredibly funny and heart warning banter between characters. “Who makes ceramic salt and pepper shakers fashioned out of small and large intestines?” Who indeed?! Every character received their proportionate air-time; their contribution enhancing, not detracting from the story.

There was no choice but to become consumed by Hopeless. Even in the name – it felt as though the cause for its title changed from being about a sad boy to a dedication to lost girls. It was a brilliant story about love, hope, betrayal, sadness, joy, courage, and survival. It's about the strength of two. "It's what happens when two people become one: they no longer only share love. They also share pain, heartache, sorrow, and grief. " Very poignant. Very apt. Very true.

You will laugh, cry, moan and sigh as you read this book. You will fall in love with the characters. You will be affected deeply. You will be silenced by the stunning conclusion. That's the phenomenal strength and caliber of Colleen Hoover's writing.

Should a sequel be written to Hopeless, I will unquestionably buy and devour it.

  26. Believe me, your reviews are necessary. If it weren't for reviews like these, so many fantastic books would gather dust and hopeless romantics like me would be stuck in reality. You did a great job. If there is a sequel, definitely follow up with a review.

  31. Ah I absolutely love this review. I read Hopeless as soon as it came out because I had been following Colleen Hoover since Slammed. I couldn't believe how much it moved me and how consumed I was by the story. Colleen has this brilliant way with words and I can't wait to read what she comes out with next.

    ReplyDelete
  32. This book really touched my heart too. I read it in one sitting and during that time I was laughing, crying, ugly crying, sighing, shaking with nerves...you name an emotion and I was probably feeling it. I wouldn't have it any other way though :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I simply adored this book!:) I'm super excited for the next one with Holder's POV :) Fantastic review by the way:)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Loved the review! It summed up Hopeless to the last detail and then some. I lived Hopeless and how the title did change for me in the end but in a good way. Hunter was just as described plus many more adjectives and Sky... Her life is more shocking and unexpected than anything I had ever read.

    Thank you for the amazing review!

  58. Oh oh...what a lovely review. I loved the book..and as a survivor I can say I relate to Sky and I feel good knowing I wasnt that different from her. Even if was fiction. I felt her pain. I felt her numbness. Sky's peculiarities touch me in a way I never expected. I understud her cause I was like her. One of most moving books Ive ever read.

  61. What a great review. I have shared this book with several friends as it is one of the best stories I have ever read. I really could feel and see the Characters and what they were going through. All the feelings of sadness, fear, excitement, longing, betrayal and hope. I thought at first this was just another Romance, all though I love a good romance, but it turned out to be so much more...so much! So well written. Love your stories and your writing!

  64. this review captured how I felt at the close of the novel. I loved how seamless Hoover made the connections between the characters. Even as I was figuring out the plot, i was still surprised and shocked at the coincidences. just as I am always surprised when Redd in The Shawshank Redemption buys the compass at the end of the movie, I am always surprised the plot turn in Hopeless.

    I wish I was as good as Colleen is and be able to put into words all the feeling I have for "Hopeless"! Naturally, I am in love with Holder! One of the best things about him? He'll be there for you (in this case, Sky, lucky girl) no matter what!!!
    I still have a bunch of book to read this year but I am pretty sure there won't be a book which would top Hopeless!

  77. Amazingly perfect review. I have never been so emotionally invested in a book in all my life like I was when I read Hopeless. I never knew words in a book could touch me the way these words did. It was the most gut-wrenching book I have ever read. I loved it. After the second time I read it, I knew Hopeless had become the best book I have ever read!!!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I felt exactly the same way about this book. I bought it and did not read it immediately. My friend finally told me, 'I'm not speaking to you until you read this book!' Once I started, I could not put it down, it was just so wonderful. It touched me deeply, and I would recommend it without hesitation. Thanks, Colleen, for a wonderful book.

  98. I couldn't agree more. What I loved most about this book, is just when you thought the big secret was revealed...BAM, Colleen hits you with another. I was shocked, awed, and memorized by this story. I have read it 4 times since I purchased it, and every time I read it, I cry and fall in love with the characters just a little bit more.

    After I read Slammed and Point of No Retreat, I placed Ms. Hoover in my top 10 favorite authors of all time. After I read Hopeless, she was damn near my number one. Her powers of writing are so captivating that you can't help but think about her stories long after they are finished. Colleen, I can't wait to read more from you. I keep the mantra "April, April, April" in my head because, I cant wait for Will's book. From a serial reader I say, thank you Colleen!! You are why we stay up until 3am finishing a book. ;)

This review competely does the book justice and thank you for writing

  137. I loved your review, absolutely amazing! I read Hopeless in less then 2 days and after I finished I was in a book slump, because nothing could compare to it. I can't wait to get my own copy for my bookshelf...I got it on my Nook, but all the books I love so much I buy in paperback and Hopeless is def the one I'm needing and can't wait to get...to read it over and over again

  140. To be honest, I wasn't sure if I wanted to read this book.. I've read other books that move you emotionally but I just wasn't sure if I was ready to put myself through those feels right now..

    But now I want to, definitely! Great review!

  146. Hopeless touched me just as much. I hadn't read any of Colleen Hoover's other books and wow was this a great way to be introduced to her incredible writing. If I could give it 10 stars I would. It is THAT good.

  153. Your review was amazing, it literally gave me chills. This book has been shared with so many of my friends. I did however, make the mistake of reading all three of her books back to back, and now I can't find an author that even compares! ;)

  163. Colleen Hoover is an amazing writer. I feel the same way as the review stated. I have read all three of Colleen's books and cannot wait to read more. Colleen has a gift and although I am not a 20 something female and in my 40's I have read lots of books and theses are by far very well written and leave me wanting more. Thank you for sharing your talent Colleen. Waiting for more of your books. I am a big reader.

  183. I've read Hopeless 3 times now and I've cried every time. Each time I read it, I see different parts of the book in different ways, so parts that didn't make me cry the first time made me cry the third time I read it. I notice new details each time and it's like I get to fall in love with the book all over again :)
