Book Review: The Light We Lost By Jill Santopolo


He was the first person to inspire her, to move her, to truly understand her. Was he meant to be the last?

Lucy is faced with a life-altering choice. But before she can make her decision, she must start her story—their story—at the very beginning.

Lucy and Gabe meet as seniors at Columbia University on a day that changes both of their lives forever. Together, they decide they want their lives to mean something, to matter. When they meet again a year later, it seems fated—perhaps they’ll find life’s meaning in each other. But then Gabe becomes a photojournalist assigned to the Middle East and Lucy pursues a career in New York. What follows is a thirteen-year journey of dreams, desires, jealousies, betrayals, and, ultimately, of love. Was it fate that brought them together? Is it choice that has kept them away? Their journey takes Lucy and Gabe continents apart, but never out of each other’s hearts.


The main character was very annoying in this one!

Throughout this quick enough audiobook, she is obsessed with one guy. Has flings, marries a guy, has children to him but during all of this she is obsessed with a guy who treated her like shit and compares him to her husband every other line throughout this.

Stop comparing every person. If you want a jerk go be with him then instead of treating your poor husband like that.
Shockingly annoying book for a famous BookClub read.
