God-Shaped Hole by Tiffanie DeBartolo

 GOD-SHAPED HOLE by Tiffanie DeBartolo


When I was twelve, a fortune teller told me that my one true love would die young and leave me all alone. 
Everyone said she was a fraud, that she was just making it up. 
I'd really like to know why the hell a person would make up a thing like that.

Written with the snap, glitter and wit of The Girl's Guide to Hunting and Fishing, God-Shaped Hole is a memorable, poignant love story that will leave you weeping with laughter. It is told in the wry, vulnerable voice of Beatrice "Trixie" Jordan who replies to a personal ad, "If your intentions are pure I am seeking a friend for the end of the world." 

In doing so, she meets Jacob Grace, a charming, effervescent thirty-something writer, a free spirit who is a passionate seeker of life. He possesses his own turn of phrase and ways of thinking and feeling that dissonantly harmonize with Trixie's off-center vision as they roller coaster through the joys and furies of their wrenching romance. Along the way they try to come to terms with the hurt brought about by their distant fathers who, in different ways, forsook them.

This story will prove so touching you will rush to share it with a friend or loved one or even a stranger.

My Rating:

5 + Stars

My Review:

What a beautiful read it was..!! HUHH... awesome. simply awesome. It was sooo emotional so captivating. It kept me up all night long and i finished it at 5a.m. Now that proves IT WAS AN INCREDIBLE BOOK!!

Jacob and Trixie meet by an ad, Yes, a newspaper ad. Jacob publishes it, and Trixie answers it.

If your intentions are pure,
I'm seeking a friend
for the end
of the world

These are the words of the Ad, and when a book starts with such a paragraph, then....You know it is worth it !!

“It’s easy to plant a seed and sprinkle it with water, but once the sun scorches the ground, and the earth soaks up all the moisture, you’re left with nothing but a thirsty little flower trying desperately to make it out of the dirt.”

“And no matter what anybody says about grief, and about time healing all wounds, the truth is, there are certain sorrows that never fade away until the heart stops beating and the last breath is taken.”

The writer has, no doubt, done an incredible job. It is recommended to everyone who needs a great read with loads of emotion along. It made me cry real bad. I was touched. It was worth a read.

“You wanna know how to make God laugh?”
“Tell him your plans.”

This is a Sad book, this is a depressing book, this is a heart-wrenching book, but don't let these remarks make you give up on this book. It is beautifully-paifully-heart breaking kind of book. You'll love it for sure. !

"A soul never truly loses hope until hope has turned to ashes, or has been buried six feet underground.”

AAH I loved it.
