Henry Hamlet's Heart by Rhiannon Wilde

Man. I was so instantly a fan of this one. I read it back in April (6 mo. ago) and then procrastinated writing a review, so I'm going to try and articulate this as best as I can:

I slowly fell in love with the author’s characters and felt like I knew them well throughout the entire book and then the last quarter of the book had me in a chokehold so tight I couldn’t put it down.

Henry’s compassion and intensity matched my own so effortlessly. I think of my own boyhood, of my sensitivity and my softness. I love how much of that henry embodies and also how much his dad does, too. “You think you’re the only one who feels things deeply?”

Henry's family in general. Ugh. The Rilke quotes. Hambam. All of it!!!

Also.....elderly queer representation!!!!!!

Every gay has an english teacher they LOVED.

Chapter 21 absolutely ruined me for multiple reasons, and i was an emotional mess by the end. IYKYK.

Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
