I am vociferously passionate about good books. And I hate adverbs.

ARC Review - The Tin Box, by Kim Fielding

The Tin Box - Kim Fielding

I am swimming in all the feels after reading this book.

 

Such an important story to tell, and so masterfully executed. (And I do not use that word lightly). I may have to add to this review in a few days, but I feel it's important to get this up there at once.

 

We need to remember (or get to know) where we come from, what was done to some of us, only so few decades ago. And what is currently still happening in many countries in the world.

 

I took a hit in the solar plexus with this one. It has great, great power, there is meaning in every sentence. This story is heavy, but at the same time, it gets a lighter feel thanks to the absolutely lovable MCs that inhabit it.

 

Yes, I am especially thinking of Colby, this wonderful young man who walked straight into my heart and just squatted there. (He's still in there, no way to get rid of him).

 

William broke my heart in fifteen pieces, and without Colby, I don't think I could have gone through with his story.

 

And then. And then. Then, there is Bill. From so many years ago. The never give up, they have to break me first man.

Yeah.

He broke me in the most utter and final way. You beautiful, beautiful man.

 

Fantastic writing; Kim Fielding does not disappoint.

 

I have had to look up more words than usual, and I loved every second of it. I am happy to learn new things and words are my favorite things in the whole world.

 

This story had more of them than usual, and put together in such a fantastic way.

 

Fantastic. Read this book.

 

You will be a bigger person for having seen this story unfold in front of your eyes.

I received a free ARC of this book from the publisher, Dreamspinner Press. A positive review was neither expected nor ever promised in return.
