As always felt the odd one out And now left with the parent who is nothing like him Willem has resorted to the one thing he knows how to do escape Instead of making any conscious decisions Willem has left his life up to fate going where the wind blows him sleeping with the girls who throw themselves at him and spending time with the people who care to spend time with him Forman s portrayal of Willem is unapologetically raw giving us the glimpses into the real man beneath the veneer of charm and wisdom Moreover Willem is slow and hesitant to acknowledge the full impact of his day spent with Allyson Although he knows in his gut that he is changed it takes awhile for him to truly accept this for him to accept that he wants from his life but meaningless travel meaningless relationships and random accidents While admittedly this can become frustrating I love that it s so typically Willem We don t expect his ourney to be nearly as straight forward as Allyson s and it isn t but it s Making India Work just as if not rewarding Further Forman explores the concept of will vs fate so beautifully weaving it into the storyline and subtly bringing it up every so often It s an integral part of Willem s growth but it s also a theme of these two novels as a whole so I love how they intersect Moreover I adore the emphasis on family in this novel especially as Forman never wastes time with meaningless family trees or background information Instead she throws us fully into Willem s head leaving us to grasp at the straws of his connections to his remaining family members and their impact on his life Yael Willem s mother who resides in India is a particular favorite of mine Not only is their relationship messy and real full of the uncomfortable facts of life we d rather push under a rug but Forman expertly reveals the layers of upbringing that go into making a parent child relationship Yael s childhood has a direct impact on Willem s own childhood as well and so much of Willem s understanding of his mother comes from his understanding of her past Yet the best aspect of their relationship is the fact that ultimately Willem comes to realize that the parent he thought he was not so similar to may actually have in common with him than he thought And I love this I love that Willem and Yael have moved on from their grief but still find ways to move on from it together It isn t a perfectly patched up relationship but it s the small baby steps that go a long way And yet when you strip away the travel the family the self discovery at its heart Just One Year is a love story We find Willem s thoughts littered with Lulu memories trinkets thoughts words dialogue And despite the fact that Lulu lives in Willem s thoughts for the majority of this novel Forman convinces us that what they share is thanust a passing fancy it s true love As Willem himself slowly grows to seize his life with his own hands he too like Allyson acknowledges that their day spent together changed him for the better And while there is the admission that both Willem and Allyson will be fine alone there is also the truth that they will be remarkable together Bram and Yael s love story which draws heavy parallels between that of Willem and Allyson s serves to strengthen our belief in the rightness of this couple Moreover what Forman really excels at conveying is that a relationship is build upon the willingness of both people to make it work It doesn t matter what hurdles are thrown their way if they re convinced that they are meant to be together no matter what they will stay together no matter what It is the growth of that mindset then that is important than the arc of any relationship It is for this reason that I love the way Forman has chosen to end this novel If you read closely enough if you understand fully enough you ust know what s really being said in all those undertones And those are the endings that make me gasp in awe every time Needless to say fans of Forman s work will be flocking to buy this the day it releases It needs no further endorsement from me or any other reviewer the name of Gayle Forman is enough to ensure that it delivers and lives up to expectations And yet I was still surprised when I read this novel While Mia and Allyson are both very different heroines they do share subtle similarities in their lifestyle Adam and Willem however are as different as can be and I love that I love these two distinct male narratives for different reasons Despite both being darkly flawed beings Adam and Willem find ways to cope with their lives and move on And best of all I love that both these duologies are of a different nature Where She Went is seuel than companion novel whereas Just One Year relies on the dates time periods and locations of Just One Day to be fully experienced at its raw potential Perhaps best of all though Shakespeare remains the underlying inspiration connecting together the books and giving rise to the tones they convey With the magic she was worked up Forman has ensured one thing you will close her novel stainedYou can read this review and on my blog Ivy Book Bindings. PensabaCompañera tan romántica como emocional de Sólo un día esta es una historia sobre las elecciones ue hacemos y los accidentes ue ocurren así como de la felicidad ue se produce cuando ambas circunstancias se cruz.
Lem is a very likeable character but also there are his friends who are absolutely adorable and I want to have friends like themIf there s something I loved about Forman s books is the character development It s so progressive and palpable Her characters and the readers found things out together Like how short Willem was selling himself how used every trick to avoid getting his feelings involved how he created this persona and that was the one living and it was all uite good to read I was enjoining the book and also getting really fucking frustrated when he and Allyson were in the same fucking place without bumping into each other and how all these little coincidences were tangling each other to get those two reunited and all the people who helped with and without knowing I think that was the aspect of the two books I loved the most The accidents the coincidences fate will luck or whatever you want to call it If it s meant to bet then no matter what it ll beAnd I liked that a year went by I liked it because I don t think they would ve made it otherwiseOne couple met in London one different couple spent the day in Paris and one different better couple was reunited in AmsterdamI liked it How they found each other s wounds but healed on their own I feel like it couldn t have been better I didn t understand then Love is not something you protect It s something you risk But like I said I didn t like how the book ended and I found Just One Night completely unnecessary That should have been ust a few chapters of JOY or an epilogue because I did not enjoy it JON it s told in a third person featuring not only Willem and Allyson but also their friends and I wasn t a fan of how it was constructed One paragraph was all Willem and then the other was Allyson and how they were intertwined ugh For me it was a mess And wow it was cheesy as fuck While JOD and JOY were both slow paced and poetic and actually mature I m talking about the writing not the characters JON was straight out of Forman s mind It came to a point where there was this sentence about how Willem felt and the next one about Allyson and no A year ago I had a backpack and now I have a key he thinksA year ago we didn t give each other our names and now he gave me a key she thinks I don t know why I was rather annoyed with this but that s how I felt and I can t really change thatOver all Allyson and Willem s story is one I wouldn t mind reading again I like how they found each other and themselves in every possible way and the message is clear Own yourself Love yourself Be be better and be happy I melted into Just One Year In January I was impressed by Forman s Just One Day but not nearly as much as I was impressed by her If I StayWhere She Went duology Just One Year however ties together these two novels so seamlessly that I find myself unable to choose which duology I love And Forman Forman hits all the rights notes with this novel travel Shakespeare unflinchingly honest characterizations familial relationships and my favorite love that s meant to be Just One Year picks up in Paris from the moment when Allyson and Willem s stories diverge While we know what Allyson went through in her separation from Willem we now are privy to the inner workings of Willem s mind And gosh what a fascinating place it is For me one of the greatest strengths of this novel is the stark parallels but also the shocking differences between both these narratives For one many of the locations are similar In fact the near misses between these two will make you cry out in frustration than once but they only add to the steady build up of tension to the taleA slightly subtle similarity however is the thread of confusion that connects Allyson and Willem s ourney In Just One Day Allyson wakes up to find herself alone in a foreign country Yet she finds herself puzzled by what happened to her companion why did he abandon her Why could he see aspects of her true personality that the others around her could not And what most importantly is she to do with her life now that that colorful whirlwind day is behind her and bland boring days lie ahead Forman answers these uestions with aplomb creating a New Adult novel that realistically explores the ourney of college and even better the No Way Home journey of finding yourself in a seemingly normal world As we will find out though Willem undergoes a similar state of mind After all how is he to find Allyson without even knowing her real name After traveling for years and meeting dozens of people why is it that she disarms him and sees into his soul with her honesty And how is he ever going to return to the normalcy of his on the road life now that he knows what it s like to be with someone who genuinely cares someone who has forced him to care for the first time in three years It was evident even from Just One Day that there was far to Willem than what met the eye And there is Bram Willem s father passed away three years ago and ever since Willem has barely spoken to his mother Yael Bram and Yael s love story is legendary encompassing their lives in such a way that Willem Illem se pregunte si su destino no será estaruntos Desde entonces viaja por todo el mundo con la esperanza de encontrarla Pero pasan los meses y Willem empieza a preguntarse si la fuerza del destino es tan poderosa como.
25 starsWell this was such a let down after Sequins and Spurs just one day I expected to find out a bit about what had happened to Willem to cause him to disappear but I also wanted to know what happened to Willem and Allyson once they found each other again Unfortunately though 99% of this book was a really boring recap on what had happened to Willem over the course of the year that he and Allyson were separated and it wasust mind numbingly boring I m not sure how I got through it actuallyThe bit that I was then waiting for Allyson and Willem r i was a little disappointed in this book a lot disappointed because I thought it was something it wasnt Here s my full review I really think even setting aside my misconceptions that this book would have been heaps enjoyable if we were to watch Willem develop through a relationship with Allyson His problems were different from hers He needed to learn how to stay How to love things fully without the fear of loss I feel that that could have been shown wonderfully through watching his relationship bloom with Allyson and seeing their dynamic together rather than watching him wander the world at times aimlessly while they were apart I NEEDED MOREReally though How could you end it there D I mean yes that ending was beautiful but goddammit I needed details It can t possibly ust end there there s gotta be to itsigh Nonetheless I enjoyed it At least now I understand Willem s side of the story and finally know what goes on in that head of his However I find myself still not as satiated as I d hoped I would be It s not either or not luck or love Not fate or will Maybe for double happiness you need both Blurb When he opens his eyes Willem doesn t know where in the world he is Prague or Dubrovnik or back in Amsterdam All he knows is that he is once again alone and that he needs to find a girl named Lulu They shared one magical day in Paris and something about that day that girl makes Willem wonder if they aren t fated to be together He travels all over the world from Mexico to India hoping to reconnect with her But as months go by and Lulu remains elusive Willem starts to uestion if the hand of fate is as strong as he d thought Note I ll review here Just One Night as well because I don t feel like doing the whole thing again I read the novella right after I finished this book and you can see that at the end of this reviewTo say the only thing I thought about was reading this book wouldn t be a lie I couldn t stop thinking about what happened that last day in Paris and why Willem disappeared and we found out what happened uestions were eating me alive What was Willem doing this whole time Was he looking for Allyson Did he give up Did he ever get to go to Holland What is it in Holland and you know how it isI was pleased this book answered most all of the uestions but it s such a bittersweet feeling It was a surprised I actually liked this book than I liked Just One Day because I found Willem and I repressed things the same way and we used the same kind of distractions so it was a great thing to read how he overcomes all of that and becomes an stable guy but I have to be honest hereI completely hated the way the book was divided I wouldn t have minded a larger book if that meant we had that the first half that d be all about Willem and how he re discovered himself and how he came back to his family and friends and had a new purpose and the other half that d be about he and Allyson getting finally back together and they re going to make it work and I really wanted to read about how they told each other what happened during that year but we didn t get the whole thing and I felt robbed somehowWell what I did like about the book was pretty much 80% of it I didn t know I was going to care about Willem this much but considering I didn t like Allyson until the very end that shouldn t have been that much of a surprise The first four chapters I think were ones of the best They were chaotic and messy and full of fear confusion I mean I felt heartbroken while reading them Willem was in such a frenetic state it was really painful to read At least for me He was trying really hard not to lose Allyson but he didn t know why he would lose her or who she was exactly so like I said chaotic Then he remembers but he doesn t know what to do so he tries to move on but also don t give up on looking for her and it s all really interesting and sad to see Accident how I found her Accident how I lost her You have to give the universe credit the way it evens things out like that The whole thing with his parents is such a mystery until it isn t any but still what was going with his mom he s angry at her and he misses her and he misses his home and his dad and how things used to be and you can feel it through the paper Everything he does is to escape To be someone else to live a different life He wants to remember but he doesn t want to live it againI loved it all I loved how lost he was how he continued to move on how he lived his life without any prove of living at all It serves the purposes of the book and it was well delivered Wil. Cuando abre los ojos Willem ignora ué lugar del mundo se encuentra Todo cuanto sabe es ue una vez más está solo y ue necesita dar con Lulu Pasaron un día mágico en París y algo en ese día en esa muchacha hace ue
