|I knew this day would eventually come.
I’ve been avoiding it.
Reviewing The Silver Cage means I have to relive Cal and Michael’s story. I’m not sure my heart is ready for that, honestly. How do you review something that left you feeling wounded and heartbroken? Especially when it was one of the most beautiful things you’ve ever read.
I picked up The Silver Cage a second time, since I read it about a year ago, and immediately the heartache of the pages I knew were to come filled me with sadness. And yet, I couldn’t stop reading. When words on a page are so riveting, you just can’t stop, even though you know you’re going to be broken when you’re finished… That’s talent. Anonymous has a way with words. They paint a picture… sometimes filled with color and joy. Other times filled with black and white and pain. They make you feel all the things, good and bad.
When I pick up a book I want to be transported into the characters’ lives. I want to live their story and feel their feelings. The only problem with The Silver Cage is that it did just that. I felt their everything and I wasn’t prepared the first time. I thought I was the second time, but there really isn’t a way to prepare yourself for this. Beauty. Pain. Turmoil.
The inability to put down the book says everything.
