“What if your life were a movie, but somewhere along the line, you lost the plot?”
Usually, as a reader we are attracted towards the books that feel like roller coaster rides: adventurous, crazy, fun. But sometimes, there are books which are entirely simple, yet lead you to question your life, your views. The Silver Linings Playbook, undoubtedly, is one such book.
This book deals with issues if mental stability of the main character, Pat. The main, recurring theme ( and undying belief of Pat) is Hope. Hope for past, hope for future, hope for family and friends, hope for love. Pat believes in silver linings. Always. And this makes you think and question : what is better? Holding on to the real perspective of live, that is mature and clear and practical; or to hold onto the one that keeps looking for silver lining? Isn’t the real perspective a quite cruel one? A hopeless one?
