BOOK REVIEW:
TIN MAN BY SARAH WINMAN

Title: Tin Man
Author: Sarah Winman
Published: 2017

Pages: 208
Rating: 4/5


Summary:
This is the story of two boys who meet when they're twelve and become best friends, and then the relationship grows into something more, but then we fast forward a decade into the future and one of the men now has a wife and the other one is nowhere to be found.


Review:
This was a lovely and heart wrenching.

This book is beautifully written and there's a tenderness to the writing that's really special. It's a relatively short book, but there is still so much going on and so much to digest. It's an incredibly emotional story and there are a lot of layers to it, even though there's isn't a whole lot of plot going on here. It's more about the people and it brings up important issues like homosexuality and AIDS, and I think the way it delves into this topic feels genuine, which makes it powerful.

There's something about the characters that just instantly drew me in, and I think the author captures everyone's inner lives incredibly well. You can really feel what they feel, both the happiness and the sadness, and it captures unrequited love is such a realistic way.

It's a really touching book and one I think will stay with me for quite a while. I would highly recommend it if you enjoy literary fiction and love stories (albeit sad ones).
