When I won the giveaway for All About Amy, I was thrilled. The synopsis is very intriguing, and my curiosity got the better of me. This book somehow ended up a bit forgotten and abandoned for many years – but now that I’ve read it, I am happy I did. It was a very pleasant adventure
About The Book:
Troy is a guy that lives a very quiet and uneventful life. He’s a bit of a sad soul, to be honest. One day, a mysterious woman shows up on his doorstep with a bombshell. She claims she is the transmigrated soul of Amy – his long-lost girlfriend who died in a tragic boating accident nearly twenty years ago.
Troy is left baffled. He’s unsure whether this girl is part of some weird game, or whether Amy’s soul actually returned in the body of this lady.
Unfortunate circumstances will make Troy and Julie to end up on the run together, fleeing for their lives from local gangsters. And spending more time together will hopefully shed some light on the truth.
All About Amy was a very interesting and unique read. I truly enjoyed the writing style and the short chapters. It is written in first person, with Troy’s point of view and we get an in-depth view of his thoughts and feelings. Although, sometimes I wasn’t able to get into his head and know exactly how he was feeling.
It was very interesting to see the scenario of transmigrating being explored, and how a person might react if such thing happened to them, or if they met a person like that. I could perfectly relate to Troy being doubtful and not wanting false hope, or old feelings resurfacing. It was also difficult for him to get to know Julie as herself, without the interference of Amy.
The ending was a bit “meh” for me, which is why I gave this book 3 stars. It left me disappointed and it wasn’t what I was expecting nor hoping for. I also didn’t think the ending of the story was very memorable. However, as a whole, All About Amy is a unique and interesting mysterious novel, and I suggest you give it a go if you get the chance.
