So I haven’t done a book review in a while for the simple fact that I just haven’t had (or taken the time to) read. It’s one of my favorite things to do but unfortunately life gets in the way sometimes.
I don’t know why I thought reading a 482 page book with two babies at home was a good idea. Maybe two years ok, and like I read fast, and I don’t even want to admit how long it took me to read this one. Like I can’t even tell you how many months. I’m so embarrassed.
Basically Two by Two is about a man who decides to follow his dream about opening his own company, which leads his wife (who used to stay at home with their daughter,) to find a job and in turn leads to divorce. So all of a sudden this man is jobless, wifeless and has to take care of his six year old daughter. The story is about how he overcomes all the challenges that are thrown his way and how the relationship with his daughter evolves.
Nicholas Sparks is one of my favourite authors and he always leaves me questioning everything. This time around however, I don’t know if I can say that I enjoyed this book as much as I hoped. The concept was good and I loved how many times “Two by Two” was referred to but I didn’t like the ending. It was far too long for the outcome. Maybe had I had more time and read it in a shorter period of time, perhaps I would have had a different reaction.
Don’t get me wrong, it definitely had good parts. It was full of raw emotions and vivid characters and I throughly enjoyed how it was written. The relationship shown between a Dad and his daughter had my heart melting!
I enjoyed going through a book that I could kind of relate to in this period in my life of staying at home with the kids and trying to balance everything. So I would recommend it to people who are going through a similar experience too.
Have you read this book? Or any similar books you could recommend me?
