Ash & Bramble - Sarah Prineas

Criticism of 'insta-feelings' by another reviewer 5% into a book.

 

For fuck's sake, apparently characters aren't allowed to feel anything for anyone at any point in a fucking story. Not concern, or affection, or even a kinship.

 

Are these people perpetually single because they never get feelings for anyone in real life?

 

Are they lonely spinsters?

 

Are they fucking jealous because they can't get someone to love them so it must be impossible for two characters to instantly connect for little reason? EVEN THOUGH THIS IS HOW IT WORKS IN THE REAL WORLD, YOU 'CLICK' WITH SOMEONE AND CAN'T EVEN EXPLAIN WHY.

 

Apparently you're not supposed to have any kind of feelings for anyone unless you know them inside out and have known them FOREVER. Otherwise it's INSTA-LOVE.

 

But the best part of falling in love is discovering all those wonderful things and secrets and quirks and habits of your partner.

 

SERIOUSLY WHY ARE PEOPLE SO FUCKING CYNICAL. THAT'S NOT HOW LOVE WORKS IN THE REAL WORLD YOU DOOFUS.
