The Love That Split the World


The Love That Split the World

People think Natalie Cleary might be crazy since she sees things no one else can. Are the people she sees ghosts, visions, or living nightmares? When Natalie falls in love with Beau Wilkes, she has to figure out if his odd arrival in her life is a sign that he might not be real. Now she has to solve the puzzle of how to keep her mystery love in her world.

The Love that Split the World was a quick read making it great for summer. While the plot behind the story may seem heavy (a girl is trying to make sense of a world that is literally changing before her eyes), Emily Henry managed to keep things light in the book.

The idea of having two timelines of life overlapping on earth was interesting. It was so unique! This theory is what really gave this book its rating. But then Henry added time travel, which never works for me. Going back in time and altering major events can kill a book. We invested all this time in a story, and now you’re going to go back and undo everything? Nope.

The love interest Beau Wilkes was flawless. That might sound like a good thing, but perfection is unrealistic and it made his character flat. The love was as superficial as Beau was– a love at first sight that was more of a teenage obsession than anything else.

I loved the cleverness behind the book, but the characters and relationships could have been developed a little more.
