Flash Review: Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe – Benjamin Alire Sáenz

IMG_4063

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz was a fantastic read, and the first book I have ever begun and finished the same day.

It is such a beautiful book in so many different ways. I find it terrible hard to point out the reasons why I love this book so much. It was just so real, so raw, and the word beautiful keeps popping up in my head.

This novel shows how complicated friendship, family and life can be for a teenage boy. It shows how darkness is in all of us, and how every tiny little thing in the world can affect a person so so much. It can make us angry and sad, and confused because we don’t know the reason.
