The Sound of Violet by Allen Wolf
About The Book
Desperate to find a soulmate, Shawn goes on one awkward date after another until he encounters the alluring Violet. He starts dating her , but his autism keeps him from realizing that she’s actually a prostitute. Shawn thinks he’s found a potential wife while Violet thinks she’s found her ticket to a brand new life. This hilarious and dramatic award-winning story has been adapted into a major motion picture.
This book is a little bit difficult to categorize; it’s about love and life but with a high dose of reality. This is not the story of the perfect man who meets the perfect woman and they fall in love; because reality is not like that, we all have our problems and secrets and that’s why love is never easy.
This is the story of Shawn and Violet; Shawn is looking for her future wife, because he wants to love and to be loved. But, as you know finding love is not so easy and being autistic it doesn’t help. On the other side, there’s Violet, she doesn’t believe in love or destiny, she only wants to survive. They meet each other in a weird party and even if they didn’t have a first sight love, their chemistry together will be there since the beginning.
I liked how both characters are portrait, Shawn’s family scared that anyone could harm him or use him and on the other side, Violet’s dark vision of life and how she doesn’t know how to escape from her job being a prostitute.
I enjoyed this story, hoping that both characters will have a future together but not knowing how everything will continue for them.
I have to say that I didn’t enjoy much all the religious talk, I can understand that for Shawn and her grandmother it’s something important, but I would be happy without it too…
This is a story easy to read and to fall in love with; I can’t wait to watch the movie! Are you ready for “The Sound of Violet”?
