Review: SIX FEET UNDER by Whitney Barbetti

Synopsis

Six wasn’t the hero I needed.

But he was the man I wanted.

And it was my selfish craving, the desire to own him, that would be our undoing.

No one tells you that love is a disease. An infection that tears your heart apart, leaving you half the person you were before. A malady that leaves open wounds. An invisible disorder tracing scars in the places you couldn’t see if you weren’t looking for them.

I was sick, but love didn’t heal me.

Instead, it festered in my marrow, and drove me to unforgivable mistakes.

Six was my first mistake, but he wouldn’t be the last.

 My Review

“Like a parade through my heart, a storm over my soul. It wasn’t a fall; it was an explosion, obliterating my life. What had been nothing had become everything. Love put me in a chokehold.”

Give me a book that’ll make me think and feel. A book that’ll make me think outside the norm, and feel every thing a little more. A book that’ll bring me to tears. One that’ll open my mind and heart to subjects, situations, topics that aren’t an everyday discussion, but should be.

The writing in this novel is just as hauntingly breathtaking, and heartbreaking as the story of Mira and Six. This novel delves into the subjects of mental illness and drug addiction. Their love story isn’t a “light” or “easy” one—it shows the hard, ugly, mad side to love. However, it also shows us to love those who don’t think they deserve, or need that love a little harder on those dark days. It’s a tough read at times, but an important one. Books with this much emotional depth is what I crave as of late. Whitney shined the spotlight exquisitely on these looked-over subjects with so much thought, love, and conviction behind each and every word in the story that is SIX FEET UNDER.

Synopsis

Six was always there, even when I didn’t want him.

But he couldn’t hold me together, and I couldn’t be his penance.

Loss is a phantom limb. No one can see it, but the ache torments you in the night, distracts you during the day, and leaves you fragmented. I’m half a heart, half a soul, and nothing could cure the pieces he’d left behind.

Losing him was safer than loving him. Because the love that kept us coming back again and again was nothing short of madness.

But then, isn’t mad love the most honest?

About the Author

Whitney Barbetti is really, truly awful at writing in the third person, so we’re just going to change this bio up a bit and write it as first person.

I am married with two boys. When I’m not changing diapers or cutting food into tiny bites, I escape to Starbucks for hours. My blood pressure actually drops the moment I walk in, hear the baristas call my name, and inhale the aroma of coffee beans. And I don’t even like coffee.

I love music and have a playlist for everything. Queen is my very favorite.

I like watching creepy shows when I am home alone but then I instantly regret them once my mind starts breeding irrational fears. I try to channel my fears into my books as a way to cope.

I have about 20 bacon things in my fridge.
