Annabelle Costa - Crazy in Love

Review of Annabelle Costa - Crazy in Love

 They call her Crazy Anna.

Anna Flint won’t shake your hand. She collects tin cans. She cleans her cubicle at work with Lysol several times a day. But Anna doesn’t care that they call her crazy. She’s absolutely satisfied with her life of perfect organization, cleanliness, and most of all, solitude.

Matt Harper likes Anna Flint. He likes that she’s the smartest person he knows and he likes her big blue eyes. He doesn’t even mind her can collection. In fact, he pretty much likes everything about Anna. As his body and his world are falling apart, she still manages to make him happy.

Matt is the only person Anna has ever wanted to be close to. But how can she go on a date with him if the thought of dinner at a restaurant fills her with terror? How can she ever kiss the man she loves if she can't even touch him?

Maybe it’s time to stop being Crazy Anna. If only she could.

My review

I absolutely loved the start of this novel and it kept me gripped all the way through. Anna is such a great character and it was great to hear her thoughts mixed in with those from Matt. I loved the dynamics between these two characters as the book progresses.

This book is written from the two different perspectives and flits constantly through the characters as the story progresses. I thought this might be confusing but I found that I eagerly looked forward to the other perspective from Matt. Such a great way of showing the views of two different characters. I found this to be a touching and lovely story, I really warmed to crazy Anna in a way that I thought I wouldn't. Both humorous and emotional, I found it an absorbing read. I won't give away the ending, but the book develops pace as it progresses to a satisfying ending. Great read, thank you Annabelle Costa.
