The beginning of 2018 - when I read this book for the first time. I was 18. I don’t know why, but I cried many times while reading (spoiler: the book is sad after the middle), maybe the book influenced me that way, or I'm an emotional person. But I remember one thing for sure, I also, as the main character from this book, “went” to look not for “Great Perhaps” but for “Satisfying Perhaps”. Well, 2 years have passed already, but I'm still in search. You can say, "C'omon only 2 years, a whole life ahead." But you know what? And after 10 years, 20..I will still be in search. I thought: I became wiser. I thought: I know my direction. I thought: what I give will come back to me ... To this day, I have always given more, and in response they have more and more disappointed. And I have already come to terms with the fact that I'm not the most-lucky girl in the world. And for two years it would seem so little for "some kind of perhaps", but this number for someone is a lifetime. In short, after RE-READING the book, I realized that life is a search. Search - how to get out of this maze of suffering. Know one thing, it does not matter whether we find our “Great Perhaps” or not, WE ARE ALL GOING (to the same place).
You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.
Easy to read. Provides an interesting perspective on death and afterlife. Characters are real and flawed.
