The Versions of Us

We rated this book:


The Versions of Us is an intricate tale spanning three alternate realities in the lives of Eva and Jim. The realities are set into play when Eva and Jim meet, by chance, in between classes at Cambridge University in England. After the first chapter, we see their meeting in two other realities, and we follow all three for the rest of the book.

Everyone finds themselves asking the question “what if” at some point in their life, and this book does an amazing job of delving into that question. Beautifully written with realistic and memorable characters, this is definitely a book worth reading, but it will take some time. Readers may want to actually take notes to remember what happens in each reality, otherwise the potential of getting confused can be fairly high. But the magic of the book is in its possibilities, both in the words on the page and the ideas it inspires in the reader.

This isn’t a fluffy romance, but it’s a rewarding love story nevertheless. Kudos to author Laura Barnett for pulling it off so beautifully.
