Jake Cavanaugh, a photographer with mysterious, brooding gray eyes, agrees to help chronicle her newfound experiences. She makes him laugh, one of the only people who can these days. As they delve into each other’s pasts – and secrets – the closer they become.

Book Review: 4 angel stars!!

Since stars had a limited amount of hydrogen – and they needed that stuff to exist – they in turnhad a finite lifetimeof radiance. The way hearts had a finite number of heartbeats.

Never in my book worm life had I ever imagined that I would get to read a book such as this. Its autheticity and uniqueness caught me completely off guard since the first moment I started it. And may be the blurb gave me an idea what I was in for, nothing could prepare me for the greateness that was waiting for me just around the pages.

The Heartbeat Hypothesis is a story about a girl who has made her goal to reenact some memories of the girl whose heart is beating under her chest. But she has to ask the help of the photographer behind the photographic imprinting of those memories. So, Audra and Jake start travelling together his sister’s memory lane which makes them get closer with each other.

If someone would come up to me and said that thia story was based on real facts, I would probably believe him. It is simply so real and raw that I couldn’t help feel that these two characters are actually existing on this planet and this book was a part of their story. Both Audra and Jake are proven to be from the beginning characters with some very complex, but intriguing nonetheless, personalities and ways of thinking and dealing with problems. But as they spend more and more time in each other’s company, which leads to confessing personal truths, the change both are forced under is inevitable.

“Without the middle, being first or last means nothing.” The middle gace the rest its meaning.

What draw me into and made me love even more this amazing story, except the autheticity of it, was that, even thow it seems like a love story, its basic truth and foundation is build on the process each one of us has to go through, the sacrifices we have to make and the loses we have to endure so we can find our true self on the other side of the tunnel. And in the end, what matters the most and what makes our time on this planet worthwhile and special are the things we allow ourselves to feel; things like love, forgiveness, passion, friendship and even some pain which all together are what makes each being different. And Audra and Jake learn how to appreciate them while discovering their inner world and what trully matters.

“All you need is the combination of bright sunlight, suspended droplets of water, and the proper viewing angle, and you get to witness one of nature’s most famous masterpieces.”

My words are completely failing me when it comes to describe the story and my feelings about it. My mind, heart and thoughts are so emotionally charged by the journey of these two characters that it would need quite some time to write everything down and with the correct words. I ususally tend to say that no matter what I or any other reader say about a book, if you don’t experience it yourself you will never be able to grasp its majesty. And this book couldn’t fall more than bull’s eye on that opinion. This multi-layered story and couple put your emotional producer into the test, creating more of acommotion as you go deeper into it and get to witness what really they are made of.

Frydman surprised the hell out of me with this story. Her writing gave it all it got so it could bloom itno this lovely gem of literature. And if you are looking for unique love stories with characters who are raw and real, this is a book you don’t want to pass by. Trust me.
