#387 ~ The Universe is a Very Big Place

The Universe Is a Very Big PlaceThe Universe Is a Very Big Place by April Aasheim

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Published by:  Dark Root Press
Reading Age:  Adult
Genre:           Fiction, Contemporary, Romance

I was very kindly provided with a copy of this book via the First Reads Scheme at Good Reads (which is part of the Amazon family) in return for an honest review.

Beautifully written with some of the most fabulous and engaging characters I've had the pleasure to read in a very long time, it was simply a really, really great read .... and I loved every moment of it.

To sum it up with an alliteration, it was practically perfect paraphrasing throughout.

The Author has a way with her, and I'm not surprised that the motivational elements for Spring Ryan were spot on when I read her Biography. I don't want to give any spoilers, so read it and then read April's Bio.

The one thing that I didn't like was the cover image, which I felt down-graded the actual quality of the writing. Yes, I know that one shouldn't judge a book by the cover, but for me it was a little of the childish side, rather than what I think they were aiming for, which was Hippiesque.

Please, please don't let the cover put you off, it was very well written other than that.

I would love to read other things by April in the future.

Product Details:

You can download, or purchase a hard copy, HERE.  Incidentally, the Amazon cover is a much better design in my opinion.

Errors/Bug Bears:

Not one, Kudos to April for a fabulous product.

Happy Reading.
