Book Review: The Absolute Value of Mike,,

Trust me, even though the cover of this book looks cute and funny, i ended up crying after reading it. The words used in this book seem so simple, but the story is very deep. The characters are unique and i laugh most of the time reading the way they behave.

The story of Mike, the main character, finding his own true passion and the courage to talk to his father about it is quite inspiring because most of us, i think, sometimes trapped in a negative or not-so-good label given by other people, or even by ourselves. However, we do have power to change that label and make the most of our lives.

Another thing is about parents. Since we were kids, we look up to our parents. They were always there, took care of us and we unconciusly think that they are superhumans. And we began to expect things from them. However, as we grow older, we begin to see that sometimes they failed to meet those expectations and we started to let those misunderstandings grow inside our minds. But hey, remember this, they are NOT superhumans! They are normal human, with limitation, just like us. And since they’re always tried their whole life to understand us and accept us, i think it’s the time for us to do the same,,
