Book Review: November 9 By Colleen Hoover


Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day before her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought for his novel. Over time and amidst the various relationships and tribulations of their own separate lives, they continue to meet on the same date every year. Until one day Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist.

Can Ben’s relationship with Fallon—and simultaneously his novel—be considered a love story if it ends in heartbreak?


Be aware this review is part rant and part spoiler.

Fallon used to be a small-role actor with an ass of a father. This random guy Ben pretends to be her boyfriend and so since then they have this magical ‘connection’ from just one day of kind of spending time together. So from here onwards they spend each year on this day together. The 2nd year is when things get steamy and she promises things when things get passionate then she has the cheek to take it all back and then:

‘It’s not something we planned’

Oh shut up Ben! He uses this as an excuse to go ahead and sleep with his dead brother’s wife.

Communicate you stupid man. He seems to think Fallon was not hurt at all last year. She was putting Herself first. You do not put a man first let alone some man you barely know! And yet, Ben uses this as an excuse to go ahead and do that? Why doesn’t he try to communicate how he feels towards her? What an idiot.

Both of these children do not know how to indicate and yet he is to be a father like figure?

SOME PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO LOOK AFTER CHILDREN! Just because one person does it doesn’t mean you can too,k some people are just stronger than others so stop trying to copy you imbecile sleeping with your dead brother’s wife, gross.

“There was no one there to tell me I would regret it some day”

Uhm how about yourself? Stop blaming other people and both take responsibility for your own actions!

Is Fallon really that silly? When she comes to find Ben’s script she becomes unsure and thinks he made up things when clearly he hasn’t.

Suicide. No one is responsible for making someone kill themselves. It’s the person themself that is selfish. Usually they are aware of the help around them however they do not care who they hurt as they only want to console themselves. How dare Ben even blame some asshole for his mother doing that to herself.

Overall, this novel’s plot is a little screwed up. I mean, immature boy sets fire to man’s house then he purposely seeks the man out and falls in love with the girl and helps her out of his guilt for nearly ending her life and then makes her promise to meet him every year? It is a little controlling.

2/5 Stars
