Project Semicolon began in 2013 to spread a message of hope: No one struggling with a mental illness is alone; you, too, can survive and live a life filled with joy and love. In support of the project and its message, thousands of people all over the world have gotten semicolon tattoos and shared photos of them, often alongside stories of hardship, growth, and rebirth.
Project Semicolon: Your Story Isn’t Over reveals dozens of new portraits and stories from people of all ages talking about what they have endured and what they want for their futures. This represents a new step in the movement and a new awareness around those who struggle with mental illness and those who support them. At once heartfelt, unflinchingly honest, and eternally hopeful, this collection tells a story of choice: every day you choose to live and let your story continue on.
This is the first Agatha Christie book I have read and I am pleasantly surprised! I didn’t think it would be my sort of thing but I read through this relatively quickly, the majority of which was in one sitting. There are many “twists” and “clues” throughout that keep you guessing who the culprit is (which I didn’t guess correctly), with all the clues adding up and making sense after the reveal.
This would have been a 5* review (because I didn’t see what was coming and that’s what you want from a murder mystery, right?!) but I didn’t really care for any of the suspects and wasn’t bothered as such who actually did the crime, just how and why it was committed. Some of the characters fell a little flat for me which is why the rating is a little lower than it could have been. That’s not to say that all the characters were like that as I found Poirot an endearing man and can’t wait to read the next book of his investigations. Hastings, the narrator, was a little clueless throughout, but added to the suspense and surprise with what emerged and was revealed.
Can’t wait to continue these books and would definitely recommend!
