Very depressing, but that didn’t stop me.

History is all you left me (HIAYLM) is a wonderful book. Every chapter was filled with twists and turns, some that could be predicted, others not.

I found this book emotionally depressing for the most part, as I really liked the storyline of Griffin and Theo, and found that I could only listen for a few chapters at a time before I would start crying or just be overcome with grief.

However, I pushed through, and I am glad I did because the actual story between Griffin and Theo + the supporting characters was great. HIAYLM shows how individuals can set aside their differences when someone close to them passes away, and the emotions that attach itself to a person.

Overall, I believe that this is an amazing book, and listeners should read this but just make sure you are 1st in the right headspace (reach out to family/friends if it raises anything that should be spoken about to support networks) & 2nd have a lot of time to listen this, so you can take breaks between chapters when it becomes too much.
