'tin man' is officially the first signed book i own, and sarah winman's reading was officially the first reading i had the privilege of attending. it was hosted by @bolenbooks about a month or so ago, and honestly, i think if it wasn't for bolen or my writing class i probably wouldn't have picked up 'tin man'. i know, i know; i went to a reading of a book i've never read and met with an author whose works i've never delved into, but sometimes it's just like that. at least now, 'tin man' holds a special little experience in my life, and i'm looking forward to reading it soon. 🖤

Overall loved the story about childhood friendship and first love. Mabel, Dora and Annie are also such great characters. It reminded me a little of The Hearts Invisible Furies.
It was a little difficult for me to get into the book because of the writing style. I found it much more enjoyable when I could read for at least an hour since the book isn't linear and isn't broken up by chapters.
Just finished reading Tin Man by Sarah Winman. This popular novel has lots of fans and it’s not hard to see why. The writing is warm, the characters are enjoyable and the plot is engaging. It’s the A Little Life Lite version for those who want 200 pages of suffering, rather than 900. Michael and Ellis are two childhood friends that have drifted apart, and they make up the two halves this dual narrative. Tin Man is a novel that can easily be read in a sitting; though its main climax seems predictable from the start, it’s a pleasant and sincere book that is difficult to dislike. However, my inability to muster up any more impressions of this book is a tell tale signs of its transitory appeal. When all is said and done, Tin Man relies too heavily on its sentimental value to be a truly recognisable read. Overall Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️
