The Last Leaves Falling free read ✓ 6 And these are they My final moments They say a warrior must always be mindful of death but I never imagined that it would find me like this Japanese teenager Sora is. 4 StarsI m kind of being harsh rating this only 4 stars but it s still an amazing book and would definitely recommend itI don t know how to review a book like this one so this will be pretty broad I loved the family relationships in this story particularly between Sora and his mother the friendships were well developed Sora Kaito and Mai were all so perfect together and finally the story flowed so well that I flew through this but it didn t make the story any less emotional or touchingSome downfalls to this book for me was the dialogue I found it to be a bit childish at times especially for characters of this age who were written to be smart and clever Mai s character also got on my nerves a few times she literally got a drop of rain on her head and suealed as if it was the end of the world And although I enjoyed the rich descriptions of food and some backstory to Japanese tales other reviewers said that for a story set in Japan there wasn t enough detail to the culture which I wanted to consider tooThis is an important story that touches on a lot of delicate subjects but it was done well with an emotional narration that made me a bit teary at times I will definitely be picking up anything else that Fox Benwell has written or will write On the Wings of Love up anything else that Fox Benwell has written or will write

More reviews on my blog Exploring Pages And these are they My final moments They say a warrior must always be mindful of death but I never imagined that it would find me like this Sarah Branwell The Last Leaves FallingThank you Definitions Youg Adult for providing me with an advanced reading copy for reviewActual rating 25 stars The Last Leaves Falling is a very uniue novel It stands out and because of that caught my eye almost immediately Reading a story about the life of a seventeen year old dealing with the Lou Gehrig s disease is something special I ve wanted to read ever since all the attention started coming up So as original as this novel might be it was never really my cup of teaFirst of all there wasn t much connection or bonding between me and the main character Sora Or should I say none at all His life was devastating and heart breaking but it never touched me or made me pity him The only characters I really felt with were his friends I loved their aspirations they chasing their dreams although they also have struggles of their own They were much interesting to getting to know than the protagonist himself who was in my opinion just a really boring character I will never understand how it s like to live with a disease like that so I also will never be able to understand his motivations his actions or his words But for all I know he wasn t a very interesting character to meThe Last Leaves Falling book dealt with themes much too serious and much too dark for my liking Do notice I like even love some darkness in a book every now and then I love how authors can choose such difficult and serious subjects to focus their book on and do it right I m not saying this isn t the case here because I know sure Branwell didn t write this book on a day There are so many things that prove her research was done very well and she took a lot of time in making sure the ALS wasn t sugarcoated in her work But despite it involving another disease and not something like cancer it felt a lot of times like just another cancer story Don t hate me for this yet I really thing it did I didn t have the feeling of reading something really different and outstanding which resulted in reading several pages with not much interestThe lack of connection with Sora as a character had much influence on the story itself It wasn t as calamitous it first appeared to be I also don t know why or how but I thought it was straight out depressing at times There is a certain hidden theme in this book which I didn t expect to encounter and was really surprised to see how much impact it had in the end People who have read it will understand me when I speak of a scene in the book that was too much for me As oversensitive as I already am it went over the edge I suddenly had a great dilemma whether to continue reading because at that point I had no intention any to I m glad I did simply because the ending has to be mu highlight of the entire novel It was perfect I didn t expect it at all to end in that way but my feelings were all over the placeAll in all my feelings about The Last Leaves Falling are very mixed I m still rather confused on what my exact opinion is if I actually enjoyed it or not There were so many disappointing aspects but also others I really liked If you however enjoy the premise of a book that deals with very harsh themes and if you re not a very sensitive person I really think this book will turn you into a sobbing mess
