You guys would not believe the horrible search terms I needed to use to find this image He is broken, messed up, hopeless, talented and he can love! I liked the way that the story came kind of full circle, and Adam did get his closure, even though it came through finding out things that certainly hurt. Sep 09, Mario rated it it was amazing Shelves: For the sake of my sanity, I'm going to assume it's the latter. My review is not going to do this book justice. Where She Went is a must read for everyone!
Where She Went is an intense and breathtaking read. It m Visuals for Adam http: It made my heart ache, it made me smile and of course cry my eyes out within the first 50 pages might I add.
This story really got under my skin. I had to know whether Adam and Mia where going to be okay? Whether they were going to move on or get back together? Because Adam and Mia are characters that you get completely and utterly emotionally invested in. What to say about Adam? The way Forman writes I felt like I could feel every bit of his pain and it hurt like hell.
Mia, I adore too. I thought I would be mad with her for breaking Adam's heart. But I understood why Mia choose to make that decision to leave Adam thanks to Forman writing such well crafted and believable characters.
The writing is the kind I love - simple yet beautiful and powerful. There are parts of Adam's song lyrics at the beginning of most chapters. I really love books that music plays an important part of and Forman really expresses both Adam's and Mia's passion for music. Overall, I am just blown away by the heart in this story. Where She Went is a must read for everyone! View all 28 comments. O mas bien porque es la perfecta historia de romance. Lo dejo como que es todo lo anterior.
Es una historia desgarradora y hermosa. View all 5 comments. Feb 12, Vinaya rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was less of a book and more of a roller coaster. You know how you sometimes get off a roller coaster, and your legs feel like jelly and your middle feels like someone's wringing you dry? I'm not going to give you plot synopses.
I'm not going to give you my favourite quotes. I am, however, going to tell you a story. I read a review of the book about a month ago, and it inspired me to stop procrastinating and pull If I Stay out of the This was less of a book and more of a roller coaster. I read a review of the book about a month ago, and it inspired me to stop procrastinating and pull If I Stay out of the TBR pile I had consigned it to. I really liked it. If I Stay, I mean.
It didn't blow me away, I didn't need any of the tissues I had kept on stand-by and my feelings towards the book were positive, but lukewarm. But there was one shining, burning beacon in the book that drew me time and again. The one person in the entire book who seemed almost real , as if he could walk off the pages of the book, and into my life, so I could mend all the broken pieces.
You know how you sometimes just feel like certain characters speak to you? I'm not talking about a literary crush, so much as I am about a level of literary empathy. I could just picture, so clearly, the ruined, devastated Adam who opens this sequel, and it made my heart hurt.
As a sort of karmic retribution for my stone-hearted failure to be moved to tears by Mia's plight, I was forced to start sobbing around thirty pages into Where She Went, and I don't think I stopped. There is no way to describe my feelings about this book without sounding crazed. So if men in white coats come to cart me off in a straitjacket, please miss me and like my reviews in memoriam! Yes even deeply emotional reviews do not stop me plugging my other ones!
Also I needed the emotional breather, dammit! If there's one primary emotion I felt towards Mia for most of this book, it was the same rage that Adam was consumed by. Oh, I didn't need the big reveal at the end to know why she broke up with him, or even why she did it so cruelly, but I was still practically incoherent with rage on Adam's behalf.
I understood Mia, but I still bled for Adam. You know what's really weird about my experience with this book? I could literally feel the chaos in my head building along with Adam. And when he finally lets loose on Brooklyn Bridge and goes through his cathartic moment, I felt calm, too.
Is it weird that I practically drowned in this book, or is it just the effect of a really, really good storyteller? For the sake of my sanity, I'm going to assume it's the latter. Happy, even. I salute you, Gayle Forman. About loss. About love.
About putting the pieces of yourself back together, but still finding those jagged edges, those bits that won't fit together. It took me on a trip to the dark side of an emotional breakdown, and then it pulled me out of there and put me back on an even keel.
There are not too many storytellers out there who can make me lose myself so thoroughly in a story that I feel it, rather than simply reading about it.
So, in my book, Gayle Forman gets a gold star and a standing ovation, but please excuse me while I go recover with a truly crappy book. I think Prom and Prejudice is calling my name. In the meantime, if you want to be a sobbing mess too, please go add Where She Went to your reading pile. View all 20 comments. Feb 25, Alexa rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta. This review was difficult to write. I didn't even know where to start.
All I wanted to do was pick up the book and reread it. Because it was amazing, heartbreaking, and beautiful. I loved it even more than If I Stay. The writing was so, so good. Some moments were really intense. And I felt like I could feel everything he wa This review was difficult to write. And I felt like I could feel everything he was going through. His love, anger, loneliness, and anxiety. I just wanted to comfort him and tell him everything was going to be okay. Adam's emotions were so strong that, even though I love Mia, when he got angry and upset at her I couldn't help but to get angry and upset with her too.
Like Adam, all I wanted to know was why she left and why she did this to him. When Mia finally told him, I was shocked. I was not expecting what she said, and it hurt so much. But it made complete sense, and I couldn't hold it against Mia. Like Mia's story, the majority of Adam's story is told in one day and includes flashbacks, which were really great. But Where She Went is a bit different. There are chapters this time.
The book is longer. And there is some other things. But I don't want to reveal too much, and I won't say whether or not Adam and Mia have a happy ending.
I will say though that I believe Gayle Forman gave us everything we wanted to know and more. Closure being one of those things. I hope I haven't overhyped the book. I don't want anyone to feel disappointed. Although, I do think the hype is deserved, and I believe it lives up to it, but this is only how I felt.
And if you didn't love the previous book, I think you should seriously give this sequel a chance. And of course, the biggest thanks goes to Gayle Forman! For writing this amazing book that a lot of us readers desperately needed. View all 24 comments. Nov 11, Amy Foxy Blogs rated it it was amazing Shelves: If I Stay is the first book in the series and I ended up giving it 3 stars.
I had a hard time connecting with the first book but this book being told from Adam's POV was captivating. Three years have passed since the accident and Mia and Adam are no longer together. Both have moved on with their personal and musical lives.
Adam happens to stumble upon one of Mia's concerts and from that concert they begin to work out what went wrong all those years ago. I listened to the audio of this one and enjoyed that I could cook dinner and not interrupt my "reading.
If you haven't gotten hooked on audios you really should give them a try. And one last thing, yes, Oregon is still mentioned in this book which is always a plus for me. View all 38 comments. View all 6 comments. This book was so, so, so painfully beautiful!
And it was perfect! I couldn't stop reading. Stop seeing each other! It was so painful to read, Adam was suffering so, so much: I really liked the fact that they both achieved their "musical d This book was so, so, so painfully beautiful! I really liked the fact that they both achieved their "musical dreams".
Adam was a rockstar! How awesome is that? And Mia was some kind of cello prodigy. I was so proud of both of them. Anddd yes, overall I kept reading and up to the very last chapters I still didn't knew how Gayle would wrap everything up to make me happy. Everything was so messed up and sometimes I thought it was beyond salvation! The last chapters had me tearing up like a baby, tearing up with a big smile on my face! I love him so much!!!
I want one of those in my life pretty please. Wow what a ride!! I loved this book so much!!! It was much better from the first!! I adored the first and I wanted to know if these characters will have the ending I wanted!! The emotions were so intense in this book!!
I could feel Adam's pain and anger like I was in his shoes!! In this book like the previous,memories are include from back then,sad and happy moments. This book was so realistic! Ifelt like these characters excist in real life!! We Wow what a ride!!
We can see how is Mia's and Adam's life now Adam is living in Holywood and he is in relationship with an actress! After a disastrous interview in New York his manager gives him the rest of the day off.
And while he is walking around the city,he comes across to a concert performance of Mia. At the end of the performance Mia called him at the backstage. And like that begins one night together after three years which they were appart from each other.
There is still chemistry between Adam and Mia! The story was short like the previous book and it focused on Adam.
I loved how the story developed! I'm so sad that the series over: I will miss these characters!! Now I'm even more excited to see the movie for If I Stay!!! View all 40 comments. Jul 31, Christy rated it it was amazing. Every morning I wake up and tell my self: A day might be just twenty-four hours but sometimes getting through just one seems as impossible as scaling Everest. Three years ago he almost lost Mia, the love of his life.
Well, he did lose her, but not in the ultimate way. Three years Every morning I wake up and tell my self: Three years ago she went to Julliard, and never looked back. Because of his silent vow. Adam is still with the band, who has gotten very big. He is a huge star, dating an actress.
On the outside, his life looks pretty perfect. But he is miserable. A walking contradiction? Mia will always be in his heart, the one that got away. Adam is in New York for a recording session and interview when he passes the symphony.
He sees her. Well, her picture. Standing there with her cello. Every part of him screams to walk away, but he has to hear her play. Mia catches wind that the famous Adam Wilde is in the audience.
She has him come backstage to say hello. Very awkward. But they grab a bite to eat, and go around the city together. Mia takes Adam to all her favorite New York spots. Letting go. Unfurl your fingers one by one until your hand is open. But my hand has been clenched into a fist for three years now; its frozen shut. The night comes to an end Finally, its time to talk about what happened all those years ago. Will Mia tell Adam why she left, will he get the closure he needs and deserves?
This book was so moving, just really wonderful. I felt his pain, I needed some tissues for this one. His story will break your heart in two. When he and Mia started to reconnect, I was ecstatic, but nervous too. Great book- must read!
Read If I Stay first, then jump into this one!!! Sep 09, Mario rated it it was amazing Shelves: After reading and loving If I Stay last year, I didn't really wanted to read this one.
I just felt that the end of If I Stay was really good, and adding anything to the story would just ruin it.
Boy was I an idiot! I ended up loving it more than the first one. I just loved every single thing about this book! Especially flashbacks with Mia's family, and the whole ending. I did not expect it to end like it did, and that made me like it even more. In conclusion, amazing book, and I would recomme After reading and loving If I Stay last year, I didn't really wanted to read this one. In conclusion, amazing book, and I would recommend it to anyone who read, and liked, If I Stay.
May 16, Kat Lost in Neverland rated it it was ok Shelves: It's been three years since Mia woke up from her coma and since the car crash that killed her family.
It's also been three years since Mia left Adam's life forever. One fated night, Adam walks into Carnegie Hall when Mia is doing a concert, and it seems like destiny had brought them together again.
But when old wounds open up and constant questions are rolling, any hope of rekindling their relationship is broken. Told from Adam's perspective, this is a book about despair, heartbreak, music, sex, It's been three years since Mia woke up from her coma and since the car crash that killed her family.
Told from Adam's perspective, this is a book about despair, heartbreak, music, sex, hate, anger, hope, and love. This book seemed like kind of a waste to me.
After If I Stay , it wasn't really necessary. Oh sure, it's written all beautifully and nostalgic and everything, but does that hide the fact that the whole story was just utterly ridiculous? Not to me. I don't care what Mia says, I don't think she had reason enough to leave Adam. Okay, I haven't lost my parents and brother in a car crash, so I can't even begin to understand how that feels like.
But when someone is around you who loves you and only wants to help you, you don't push him away. If you're experiencing the problems that Mia was having, you talk about it. Not just stop talking to him and erase him from your life! I just can't get over the fact that if Mia had just said what she was feeling, none of this shit would have happened.
I believe the author maybe had this story in her head after If I Stay or even during it, but her agent or publishing company or whatever made her write it because the first one got so popular and they saw a big opportunity for more money. I also didn't really like Adam in this.
I loved him in If I Stay, but this I was a bit scared of him. Sometimes he would think or say something that would have me going; For example: I look at her there in the shadows of the shut down city, her hair falling onto her face and I can see her trying to figure out if I've lost it.
And I have to fight the urge to take her by the shoulders and slam her against the shuttered building until we feel the vibrations ringing through both of us. Because I suddenly want to hear her bones rattle. I want to feel the softness of her flesh give, to hear her gasp as my hip bone jams into her. I want to yank her head back until her neck is exposed. I want to rip my hands through her hair until her breath is labored. I want to make her cry and then lick up the tears.
And then I want to take my mouth to hers, to devour her alive, to transmit all the things she can't understand. Need I say it again? I'm going to go hide under my covers now. View all 19 comments. Feb 10, Isamlq rated it it was amazing Recommended to Isamlq by: My brain hurts.
My heart hurts. My everything hurts! I had not started it yet, but already I was upset with Mia. I also know what she does to Adam. Like him, I wondered.
Like him, I was angry. But once I got started on this, I saw quite clearly what losing her did to him. Then I felt a little more angry and heartbroken for him. And still I wondered, as he did, why? Like If I My brain hurts. Like If I Stay, this story is told from past to present and back again. So what I took from it is what Adam felt-- his confusion and his anger. Then slowly, I saw and even understood her reason. Except understanding only left me feeling only little more heartbroken.
And when he finally reached that point where closure was possible I felt it. What he said about something special ending is what I felt as I turned that last page: Yes, I could feel sad about it, but happy too because I got to meet such special people, Adam especially.

View 2 comments. Mar 16, Flannery rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Fans of the first. My heart gushed rivers of love when I reviewed If I Stay.
I listened to the audiobook and just adored it because it felt like Gayle Forman tapped into my heartbeat and the rhythm beat right through to the end.
As it turns out, this is a rare instance where the sequel or companion has an entirely different tone than its predecessor. In regards to spoilers, it is near impossible to have anything to say about this book without spoilering things about the first, but I think WSW can stand on its own even if you do know the setup.
While he is dating a famous actress and has achieved so much musical success, Adam is disillusioned with life and the way Mia left things when she cut him off cold. Sure, I can see that. I wanted to believe that he was missing his perfect complement. It was so interesting to me because the first book felt like an exercise in grief at the time I listened to it.
I see now that, just like in life, the time right after a death is surreal. That book is about losing someone. True, he was sometimes a prick. I was just rooting for him to get his own life back together. Where She Went reads like a novella. I watched as the percentage completed on my Kindle just flew by. I felt like I was holding my breath through a tunnel until the two of them actually start talking about something real.
After that point, it was a much more comfortable read, despite the plot remaining heavy. I was both happy and disappointed at the conclusion of Where She Went.
I have to spoiler it and, for that, I apologize. Mia has had 3 years to build up a life for herself. She said herself that Juilliard was more than she ever thought it could be. Adam, on the other hand, spent the last three years missing her, writing songs about her, and taking antidepressants and anti-anxiety pills to compensate for the void.
He never had that time after the breakup to actually figure out who he is. They get back together—great, except I am still unsure how much he understands about himself. He seemed so willing to just give everything up for her…and I kind of believe he would do just that if she asked him. Forman does a good job of creating a realistic male voice and painting raw emotions on the page.
And to the rest of you, if you can handle the angst and the foreverlove foreverandalways, give it a try. View all 12 comments. A book and its prequel sequel 5 Stars I never would have guessed that my first 5 star of would be a YA novel, and a sequel no less, but here we are.
Grief can be one of the most segregating things in the entire world. Some people grieve in packs, like wolves, striking out with ferocity at the pain and demanding comfort from the warmth of each other.
While others melt quietly, shattering beneath stoicism and distance. Some get angry, some get sad and some, some just get so num Category: Some get angry, some get sad and some, some just get so numb that nothing can penetrate them. Mia got angry; Adam got numb. Grief makes us selfish. I am not the owner of the grief, I just get to stand here and watch you weep. Every time I started to feel sad, or could feel myself choking back tears I would scold myself that I had no right to it.
To be strong enough for my dad. For my brother, who almost cancelled his wedding. I think Adam would understand that irrational feeling quite well. It is distancing, it is numbing, and it is destructive in a way that mourning is not. Where She Went is about two people dealing with impossible loss, in completely different ways. And when the chaos of grief and loss subsided Adam found himself alone, mourning the loss of yet another thing: There is a lot of irrationality in this story, A LOT, but it is entirely relatable.
We all do crazy things when we deal with loss. We become erratic creatures, bouncing about in our own personal hells.
And that fury skyrocketed him and his band to fame. However, on the coattails of that fame is a guilt and an anger that is so real, so potent that it cannot be ignored. I will simply say that I related deeply to this book, to all the stages of grief and loss and numbness.
While I found If I Stay moderately distancing, there is a rawness to this sequel. Full Name Comment goes here. Are you sure you want to Yes No. Be the first to like this. No Downloads.
