    1. I quite liked the characters and the book was very easy to read - I finished it in two nights. Unfortunately something about it just didn't grab me. I can't really put my finger on what. The main protagonist was very likeable, I wondered if he had a level of aspergers - or if the point was supposed to be that he found comfort in facts and scientific analysis and couldn't combat his depression until he had embraced the emotional side of life.The book has a gentle pace and is bittersweet. It treat [...]


    2. When I received this giveaway in the mail, I couldn't stop touching the cover - whatever type of paper-finishing the publishers used felt like butter. I also was drawn into the cover design - simply the title, drawn with colored pencils, on a stark white background. Well, to me, the cover design and the paper choice, proved to be the foreshadowing of the story and the writer. The author writes like creamy, whipped butter and all the colors fading into and out each other made me think of Joe - fa [...]


    3. What an unexpected story! I knew this would be a story of character development, but had no idea it would be an in-depth journey of discovery/depression for Joe, the main character! It was a really good book. Slow at times. I was unsure of where it was going at times. However, the last 1/3 of the book really took the reader into Joe's real life; into Joe's real head/and struggles with his lifelong depression. Some reviewers wrote they thought Joe may have Aspberger's syndrome. I think that was l [...]


    4. This was just wrong ok okI dig that the author belongs or runs a writers collective but there was no reason why this book had to prattle on meaninglessly.It could've been an ok short story but to make it a full blown novel with such an auspicious title was really misleading to mes, I chose this book partially based on its title;what a fool am I? The only thing that kept me reading was hope that the protagonist was going to eventually be diagnosed with Aspbergers syndrome which would have at leas [...]


    5. Wow. A book that deserves its title. It is a beautifully written story about depression, life, family and love. It proceeded along at its own gentle pace and there were no great surprising turn of events. It reads like one slow gradual crescendo till the end. I was really drawn by the characters as much as I was by the story.


    6. This is a rather lovely book, which I read in a single day (though I did have the advantage of being on holiday and spending most of that day on the beach!). I keep finding these books – like 600 Hours of Edward and The 10PM Question – which are hard to categorise but joys to read.At 14, Joe is struggling to make sense of the world. His erratic mother and ineffective father constantly frustrate him, his friend Podge is becoming increasingly irritating, and girls are a mystery. He isn’t int [...]


    7. ((Freebie on /Kindle))I admit it, I’ve had ‘stuff’ happen in my life – I still don’t want a book written about my life though, because you know what? My life is not that interesting, and I would feel bad for the people who, one day, got the book about my life as a freebie on /Kindle and then had to read about my life where, yes stuff happened, but it still wasn’t interesting. If you can even understand that last part then that is how I feel about this bookFor the life of me I don’t [...]


    8. Wanted to give this 3.5 stars, really. Perhaps it was intentional because of the nature of Joe's personality disorders, but I found it very, very difficult to identify with or feel much for him, or care much about what happened. I did love Nel! And I found the story to be intriguing, although at the same time, the main story point was kind of obvious to me from the start, and I just read waiting for the reveal (and maybe to learn if there was anything more to it, a bigger secret). I felt like I [...]


    9. A beautiful, moving and uplifting book that covers puberty, dysfunctional relationships (both familial and sexual), friendship, first love, depression and loss. There are very few characters, so I came to feel like I knew Joe and Nel very well. Joe aged 14 is solemn, moody, socially awkward, obsessive in his interests and utterly compelling. Nel, the aunt he goes to stay with in Amsterdam that summer, is an artist with a love-life as colourful and chaotic as her small flat. And she's just what h [...]


    10. This was definitely "The most surprising thing". The book was nothing at all what I expected, even though I didn't delve into it with a lot of expectations to being with. We follow Joe, a fourteen year old boy, troubled by his family and by what I think is supposed to be a light degree of autism or asperger, as he visits his aunt Nel in Amsterdam.It's a book with a small person gallery, which means that we get to know the main characters, Joe and Nel, rather well. I loved that. Both were really [...]


    11. I was drawn into this book when I started to read it - I liked 'The Letters' very much and really enjoy Fiona's postings and ideas. I was reading it on a train journey and just got to the second part. When I went back to it a couple of weeks later I just couldn't get back into it. Nel was really the only character I liked, and once she was gone, rather too conveniently I thought, I was just waiting to get to the end - for our reading group at the end of the week. I liked the Amsterdam setting, a [...]


    12. This was the first book that I read of Fiona Robyn's and what an introduction to a writer. Joe's story had me enthralled from the start and it's been a while since I cared about a character so much. The writing seems effortless and the characters very real in all their confusion, pain and happiness. Sadly I finished it while travelling on the tube so couldn't have the proper cry that this book made me want to have. But I will read it again and now I know about the emotional punch it packs, will [...]


    13. Not at all my usual kind of read, I only embarked upon this because I follow the author's Writing Our Way Home blog and she was kindly offering it as a free download when it was first published. I honestly didn't think I was going to enjoy it, but despite all my reservations by the time I reached the end I realised I had been completely drawn in without realising it. The subject matter is still not my cup of coffee, but the thoughtful and descriptive story-telling won me over. In conclusion, it [...]


    14. One of those books that you just can't put down. This is so beautifully written. I find it difficult to conjure the right words for the emotions this story evokes. At no point does the story ever feel contrived. It feels like it could have been written about you, or your cousin, it feels that realistic. As I said, I find it difficult to describe why I have found this book so touching, but when I have ad the time to gather my thoughts about I will come back to this review.In the meantime I recomm [...]


    15. There are many books about depression. The words in this book are beautifully put together and describes that absolute inertia that slows the world and your breath when you're in the middle of depression. How nothing stops it until the head and heart are ready. The descriptions of Amsterdam are so exact I feel like I'm back on the Dam sipping coffee and walking towards the flower market. Beautiful.


    16. Joe is different. I don't know if it aspergers syndrome. Or maybe some kind of emotional immaturity, because he did seem, at the end, to be capable of emotional insight and growth. A cast of memorable, all-to-human characters and a muddled plot, untangle into a vignette of a life. We each have that spark of the holy--the most beautiful thing--in us. We just need to be reminded of it and honor it.


    17. I loved most of this book- mainly because the characters were so original and the main male character's "voice ' was flawlessly executed. That said, this book- with such a strong beginning - fizzled out for me at the end. Everything was so beautifully complex and intricately written,, then suddenly over and wrapped a little too neatly in the end.


    18. I really liked the first section. Part II was harder to take. Seriously, I almost gave up on it in the middle. But I k pet at it and I'm glad that I did. It was worth it. I especially liked the image at the very end. I've seen that before, and it makes perfect sense to me.


    19. A very good written book that makes you think. I got it for free when there was a promotion on it but after finishing it, I think it is worth buying. Also, I see that it is cheap too! It is definitely worth the money.


    20. Wow! Just finished your wonderful novel "The Most Beautful Thing!" Full of rich and quirky characters, intense family drama, multicultural influences, and the exploration of a deep and very important subject matter. Very well done, Fiona Robyn! I highly recommend this fabulous book! Thank you


    21. Fiona Robyn never fails to create a world that draws you in. This is a gentle yet shrewdly constructed and vivid story, written with wisdom and compassion, tinged with sadness and humour. There is something so real about everything she does, that gets right to the heart.



    22. Lovely, vivid, capturing. I didn't want to stop reading this once I started. What a wonderful job of capturing the beauty and agony of family!




    23. Overall I enjoyed this book. It was definately a book about the characters and the unfolding of their lives and emotions, rather than a really interesting story with plot twists and turns etc. For me it was an easy read, a book for a rainy day as opposed to something you might want for - e.g. a holiday - that would grip you the whole way through. However, I enjoyed getting to know Joe and could relate to his feelings more in the latter part of the book when he was an adult. I thought the portray [...]


    24. What a wonderful book. Mixed up teenager visits his aunt for a summer. He is treated as an equal rather than a teen which sometimes leads to his own confused state. His own parents are absent in both mind, body and spirit. The book is divided into two parts. The first being his visit as a teen; the second he returns as a depressed adult. There is a plot twist towards the end of the second part which will leave you happy/sad all at the same time. I really loved this book. It kept me interested fr [...]


    25. A thoroughly enjoyable and at times, intense read.I thought the author did a great job showing a side of mental illness in such a truthful yet compassionate way. I felt right there with Joeyru all of it.



    26. It's difficult for me to review the book The Most Beautiful Thing, as for the majority of the time I was reading it, I was actually reading a completely different book. I've done this before once or twice, for example when one of my favourite Scifi authors branched out into a different genre and I missed that announcement - I kept waiting for the robots and aliens to show up. I stumbled across Satya Robyn as the curator of small stones: little bursts of happiness and observations of wonder. Rumm [...]
