Some of these pieces were beautiful and worth rereading.
A lot of others fell short.
There were few pieces that caused me to pause and wonder – to soak in the words.
For those who love Atticus’s Instagram, they will likely enjoy this book. I, however, was hoping for more. I thought perhaps we’d be seeing some of his short pieces tied into longer prose more worthy of a book collection. The photography in this book is beautiful and really adds an extra beauty to the content. I honestly feel I enjoyed half of the pictures more than his quotes.
This book is beautifully put together. Stunning pages, images, fonts, and the cover is gorgeous, but I feel like that’s all you get with this. Beauty on the first layer but unable to find any soul.
While his words are beautiful and give you the feels for a moment, they don’t linger, they don’t settle. If you’re looking for something deep and meaningful, it’s not this. I don’t think this book was terrible. I also don’t think it was great. If you follow him on IG, you really don’t need to get this book to find anything “more“.
