All the Bright Places is a very emotional book. I fell in love with the characters within the first chapter. Niven did a great job describing people with mental illnesses. She made the characters relatable and realistic. At some points in the book I felt like I was with them. Some parts of the book were confusing, which might have been the point. Niven might have wanted the readers to come up with their own ideas, but I didn’t exactly like that. If she would’ve made it more understandable, it would’ve helped make the story better. The confusion within the characters helped to show that even people with mental illnesses don’t know what they have. Overall, it was a great book with relatable characters and new friendships.
