Readers who read manuscripts or unreleased writing work and give feedback to the authors are called beta-readers.
November 9 is a distinct and peculiar novel that portrays romance in an individualistic way. I've read over fifty books in my life time and this book stands out easily due to the unique story line. Hats off to the author for coming up with such an extraordinary plot for a romance novel.
Favorite lines from the Book:
I just sometimes find it difficult to control my indignation in the presence of absurdity.
I do not want give any spoilers related to the story but I just wanna say this: The story begins in a restaurant and ends in the same place. So, you can imagine how well thought about and well written the book would be. The narration is innovative and emotional but at times gets melodramatic and almost unbelievable. Anyways, it's just a fictional story. The romantic dialogues were brilliant and funny keeping me addicted to the book to continue reading and I'm sure most of the readers will find it addictive too.
It took four years for me to fall in love with him. It only took four pages to stop.
Coming to the characters. The lead characters are exposed cleverly and their back-stories are explicated thoroughly as we progress into the story. In fact, there are back-stories which are served as twists along the tale. I found it amusing at certain times and but not so at other times. But you gotta give credit to the author for interweaving an intricate connection between the different characters.
I would never let anyone else borrow my heart if I know there’s a chance in hell you might want it back.
November 9 is an exceptional romance novel with witty dialogues all along the story combined with unexpected twists that keeps you captivated right till the end. Definitely a must-read for book lovers. And I'm on track to try out other novels from Colleen Hoover.
