Book Review: The Comfort Book

TITLE: The Comfort Book

AUTHOR: Matt Haig

GENRE: Non-Fiction

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Matt Haig’s own battle with depression has helped him in constructing ideas for most of his books. The Comfort Book is not a story, rather written in the form of a journal containing words of consolation to be used in one’s bleakest of times.

Nothing is stronger than a small hope that doesn’t give up.

Matt Haig (The Comfort Book)

We live a chaotic life in a chaotic world and each one of us try to hold on to hope, however small it may be, to carry on. Matt Haig is offering us hope wrapped up in this comforting book.

We are going through a tough time. It never gets easy and there are days when our brain considers this a permanent state. It is lying. Life is uncertain which means as much as there is a possibility for it go bad, there is an equal possibility for it to get better. And no matter how hard we try, we cannot be certain about our future.

This journey of Matt Haig has made him realize this fault of ours to rely too much on our minds. Things get difficult and through this book, he asks us to hold on because it’s not the end yet.

Keep this book close to you and it will teach you something different in different phases of your life. Some passages are beautifully constructed while some may seem repeated. Hold on to the ones which resonate with you. Let these words give you hope.
