There Will Be Stars - Billy Coffey

I think this one might find itself the most confusing read of the year.


Set in some kind of a Groundhog day limbo, Bobby Barnes and a group of other people are forced to relive the same day over and over again. Strangely though, they go through this together, even though they died at different times and are forced to reenact there final day in quite some detail.


I was curious about the book, I think that is one of the main reason why I kept reading (and the fact that I don't like to DNF books). The premise was promising however the execution was very confusing. I kept wondering about the rules regarding their Groundhog day. Why did not every person who died in the village join them? And more, but I'm about to enter the spoiler territory.


The rest of the story was less to my liking though. At times the pacing was terribly slow and also relatively repetitive. All in all, I think it just wasn't the book for me.


Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
