Introduction to the Author
The Book The Day The Loving Stopped A Daughters’ View Of Her Parent’s Divorce was written by Julie Autumn List. Actually she’s a private person; she didn’t even show her autobiography (her life, literary works etc.) as an author. Let me tell you that her novel, The Day The Loving Stopped was based on real life, it was her life on the past three decades. She was the one who witnessed the divorce of her parents so she decided to write it up to inspire other people.
I fully enjoyed reading this book. I felt the sincerness of the story. Many people nowadays don’t have the spirit to share their inspiring stories, but the author did it for us to know the right thing to do whenever tragic events happen like what she had experienced.
Julie Autumn was courageous enough to aim her goals despite her situation when she was still young. I could say that she was so undaunted when she chronicles all her memories through photo albums, letters and memoirs. Though she was no longer on that kind of situation and she was on her way to build up new things (because it was her graduation), she sat along the couch and flashback all the scenarios on her childhood days (whether bad or good).
Before the tragedy happened, a young girl was so curios about the things around her. She had an intact family relationship during her childhood days. She was close to her sister and two half-brothers. Despite the relationship she had with her siblings, her parents were starting to have misunderstandings on some things. Her parents were always fighting especially at night. As a child who was not aware in the real world, she was anxious on why did her parents always argue. At first she didn’t mind it deeply but when the time came that her mother was already weeping, she was alarmed. She had this imputation that something bad will happen. After few days, her parents decided to divorce. The closeness of her family was changed especially with her father because she stayed with her mother’s house. “It was not the end yet” she said. In spite of her problem, she continued to face her life even the compactness of her family broke. I could say that she is an exemplary to all of us.
The message of the author states that “Whatever happens, continue your life”. Do not distress yourself with tragedies you had experienced, instead move on and change to a better you.
The author achieves her purpose to give the message of his work to the viewers. He made an inspiring novel where can relate much. It seemed to be an interesting work because of some twists on the scenarios, and the character itself gave justice on each event.
I think the protagonist, at the same time the narrator of the novel played the most genius role because I felt the enjoyment, intensity, suspense, and the sadness of each scene and I was able to recognize myself as the star on this work.
As the story goes by, I was palpitating. I didn’t feel any boredom because each and every chapter was full of excitement on what would happen on the characters of the story. Unlike any other books/novels, some of the events are boring so you escape on it. I could say that this novel gave something that’s unique so you would stay on it until the story ends. Some of it scenes happened already in my life, I know you, as an ordinary person can relate too.
The strength of the story or the novel was the climax after it occurred. If you can remember, the climax was the time when the parent’s of Julie Autumn decided to separate – divorce. At first, Julie felt that it was like a disaster came to her life in her very young age. The relationship of her parents with her changed especially his father. After that separation, the scenes were amazingly changed into better one. The development of Julie Autumn at her young age was inflicted. This made the novel more interesting. I didn’t even see any weakness on the novel because each scene was full of excitement and suspense.
If we talk about recommendation, this book/novel is suitable for us to read on it. Individuals, couples, and families will learn on this literary work. I am 100% sure that you’ll not regret reading this kind of novel.
This literary work is so inspiring, astonishing, poignant, and appropriate to each and every one of us especially daughters/sons who are suffering from family problems, separation of parents, and misunderstandings with her/his relatives. I’m pretty sure you’ll like and love this novel.
Honestly, I am not fond of reading books/novels and other literary works.
I wasn’t that interested when our teacher said that you’ll going to make a book report for this quarter (3rd Grading Period). When she announced that, I was like, “Oh my God! My brain will explode and my nose will bleed. I am not good in English language, I’m sure my grammar will be tested”.
I forced myself to read this book/novel. That was the very first time I read a book/novel seriously. At first, I was confused on what was happening on some scenes, I was able to use my imagination in order for me to understand the story briefly. As the story continues, I was interested, I didn’t feel any boredom on the story as I expected. It was like magic when I was determined and wanted to finish the story until the end. The main reason why did I stay on this novel was the main cast, Julie Autumn. She was the one who brought the novel. Like I said, she was at the same time stating or narrating the story. I idolized her strength and courage at her very young age despite the divorce of her parents. I was like her, we have similar personalities. I didn’t lose hope when tragedies occur. I will continue my life even if the biggest problem attacks on me, it’s not a hindrance to attain my goals, I will fight for it like Julie Autumn did.
That was the first time I enjoyed reading books/novels. I could say that this novel had a great impact on me and can influence a person’s life.
