"Tell me, what do you plan to do with your one wild and precious life."
This is what the book is about. Realizing you have one life. Will you look back at it with regret?
Yea, this may be something young adults will read and think what a great book, I need to take more chances! But for an adult it could be depressing. Would you want to read about how taking chances and living with no regret could turn into great things, after you've grown and made half your choices already?
I also thought the mystery part of this was on the weak side.
“Nothing could be left to chance, because chance, after all, can be dangerous. But what I didn't realize all that time, what I missed all along, is that chance is everywhere. It's also what life is made of. It's all around us, but most of the time we never see it working.”
