      This is how it all ends I definitely should not be writing my review right now because I ve just finished and this one has left me a wreck I was hoping desperately to see when I got on the computer just now that I was wrong, and that there will in fact be a third book, but the publication was in like 2008 so I m pretty sure this was meant to be it and I m CRUSHED This one was far better than the first book for me Maybe it s the relationship in this book that made me feel that way because while I [...]

      Isn t it awful when you pick up a sequel without knowing it Isn t it one of the most frustrating things a reader can be put through Well, the misfortune fell upon me when I picked up A Voice in the Distance After the first few pages, I felt like I wasn t being told enough, as if I had missed a whole bunch of pages at the start And then my suspicion arose, and I checked the bookjacket a bit carefully than I had in the library, and realised this was a sequel Ugh But I had already started reading, [...]

      I made a big mistake here and I m not too proud to admit it I didn t actually realise this was a sequel when I picked up the book at the library to be fair, nowhere on the cover does it say sequel to or second book etc in fact, lots of sequels don t actually say they re sequels so how the eff are you meant to know without being And I did not realise this was a sequel until the 75% mark when I decided to go and check out what other people thought of the book, and went, hang on book two TWO This b [...]

    10. Kat on said:

      This was my third book by Tabitha Suzuma, and following on from A Note of Madness, when I couldn t help but fall a little bit in love with Flynn, I was excited to see where his story would go next Of course, I knew this would be another emotional read, and I was quite surprised to find that the story was told in alternating POV between Flynn and Jennah.But it really couldn t have been written any other way and in fact the whole feel of the book was Jennah s story than Flynn s, which was perfect [...]

      Back in the days, in Year 10, before I discovered , I randomly picked up this book at the school library Like many other readers, I only read this book and didn t even know there was a first book until I finished it That didn t matter.A Voice in the Distance has got to be in the top 3 most beautiful books I ve ever read Suzuma captures both Jennah and Flynn s point of views so well Her writing style distinctly alternates between them where Jennah is written with deep, well thought out sentences, [...]

      It s sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo beautiful.I love it as much as I loved the first one.I ve read other reviews and you are all crying but,I am not.I mean the ending is sad but the book is so beautiful I can t help but smiling from this amazing book.I loved how this book is from both Jennah and Flynn s POV.The first book was just from Flynn s POV,we know how he felt and what was it like for him but,to read it from Jennah s POV too was pretty amazing.I actually think she suffers the most because [...]

    13. Stephanie (Stepping out of the Page) on said:

      I enjoyed reading this book as it was quite effective and very realistic Flynn has bipolar disorder and this is what the book is based around showing Flynn s actions, decisions and the impact that it has upon his family and friends especially with his girlfriend, Jennah I think the two prominent aspects of Bipolar Disorder manic and depressive episodes were portrayed well The story was authentic and the struggles both Flynn and Jennah faced felt genuine It didn t feel as though things were simpl [...]

    15. Tasneem Jamal on said:

      4.25 stars I really liked this novel it was away better than the first one I liked the two points of view I really liked the world that was created by Tabitha Suzuma this NOVEL gave me many felling and made me think a lot came second as favorite after Forbiddenthis novel will stay with me and I hope for third one for this series

    16. Antonella on said:

      My heart is broken I ve nothing proper to say right now I ll just stay here, pretend that everything is beautiful and nothing hurts.

    17. Pinkcaramel on said:

      I didn t feel connected to the story, maybe because it s too short, maybe because I didn t read book 1 I didn t really like Flynn, it s hard for me to want to read if I didn t like the male protagonist

    18. Omar on said:

      When I have time, I ll write a longer review, because this novel deserves one A very sad but beautiful book about a talented musician battling depression I m really starting to like Tabitha Suzuma s work this is definitely a book I d recommend Cheers

    19. Jess on said:

      It was quite a good book to immerge yourself in the world of the bipolar, but I hated the ending, too romantic to be true after all this

    20. Annie Brewer on said:

      YES Thank you God I m almost finished with the first book and I m ecstatic to see that this one is in Flynn s POV Hell to the yes And I love Jennah So excited to read this book

    21. Joshua Boiser on said:

      They say that depression is an incredible sadness, an unbearable mental pain No, it doesn t have to be so dramatic Sometimes it is nothing than feeling tired Tired of life In therapy they tell you to remember that the bad spells pass That things do get better, that medication does work, that things don t stay the same I can t see how this is supposed to help Ultimately everything ends with death What they should say is things might get better for a while, but eventually you will go back to bein [...]

    22. Zoë on said:

      3.5 ish stars I suppose.Oh manI was disappointed by this one I still really care about the characters, so I gave it a high rating anyway If there s one thing Suzuma always succeeds at, it s creating characters I deeply care about like they re real people, even if they re not always likeable which is what makes them so real But if it wasn t for that, I wouldn t have liked this book very much at all.I was extremely disappointed by the ending, not because it was sad that they broke up, but because [...]

    23. Lan Kiều on said:

      The ending of A Voice in the Distance was like, Hey, how s your hope going on Still doing good Well you might wanna loosen your grip on it a bit, since it would hurt less when I yank it away But of course, I didn t, so you can easily imagine how it went It kinda remind me of the ending of Me Before You, but thankfully not that tearful If you love someone, learn to let them go.I hate it that it was sad, but I understand.4 stars

    24. J. Taylor on said:

      3.5 Much better then the first one and hard to put down but I felt some things were cut short and way perspective from Jennah then Flynn and I just preferred reading his parts.

    25. Liv on said:

      Oh God, why Why did I have to read this book Why did it have to be so sad Why did all of that happen to Flynn and Jennah I was so not prepared for this I just finished A Voice in the distance , after enjoying A Note of Madness , andI feel like I ve been put through the mincer.I don t know what to think and what to do after reading this book.I feel empty, but my chest hurts as if I ve been overrun by a truck.I had to cry so hard at the end and also a few times during this read I still cry just th [...]

    26. Victoria on said:

      I finished up this series in just a couple of days so it is definitely a short, fast read I really liked both books but there were some things that bothered me about the story and the writing and overall they were sad and I kept waiting for a little happiness to ooze in, but there were only fleeting moments of happy surrounded by a gulf of sadness and it just lacked balance I really loved the storyline I liked that it centered around a music school and musical prodigies, it was different and ori [...]

    27. Ddpjclaf on said:

      Um, I don t know how, but somehow, I added my review to the comments section Anyway If there is one thing I know when I pick up one of Tabitha Suzuma s books, it s that she will somehow, someway, make me fall in love with her characters It doesn t matter how damaged they are, how many mistakes they make, or how frustrated I get with them, I cannot help falling completely and madly in love with them.In the first book, A Note of Madness, I already cared deeply for Flynn All I wanted was for him to [...]

      This should actually be a 4,5 but I m still so angry with the way it ends that I can t possibly give it a 5 But it s weird, why do I feel that this book is so much because it doesn t have a happy ending The same thing happened to me with Forbidden, even if this ending is not as dramatic as that one, it still hurts so bad, both do in their own way Suddenly I feel that these endings are appealing in these type of books, it makes them real in some way Can t believe I would ever say something like [...]
