To Liv from Ruin is a thinking kind of book. You don't just read it, you absorb it. I hadn't expected the book to be this way, actually I had no expectations. I have to admit I was slightly overwhelmed by the subject matter but when you finally delve into what the book is really about, you will begin to see the book for what it really is. I'm still not quite sure about some of what happened in the book but I still managed to appreciate and enjoy all that I read.

About more than halfway through the book there were some religious undertones that became more obvious at the end (at least for me) but it was easy to understand and didn't hinder my reading. The world building is well done and the characters themselves are easily to love. I liked something about every single character and I think readers will find them very likable and relatable. 

During the last half of the book the story takes on a more supernatural feel but I think it helps add to the story instead of taking away from it. I'm also pleased with the writing and writing style even though at times I felt lost.My final thoughts on the novel are that its a great read for a thinker and a believer. You will walk away feeling differently in a good way. You'll have met an eccentric loveable cast of characters with intriguing names and even more incredible stories.
