Silver Linings Playbook - Matthew Quick


Meet Pat. Pat has a theory: his life is a movie produced by God. And his God-given mission is to become physically fit and emotionally literate, whereupon God will ensure a happy ending for him -- the return of his estranged wife Nikki. (It might not come as a surprise to learn that Pat has spent time in a mental health facility.) The problem is, Pat's now home, and everything feels off. No one will talk to him about Nikki; his beloved Philadelphia Eagles keep losing; he's being pursued by the deeply odd Tiffany; his new therapist seems to recommend adultery as a form of therapy. Plus, he's being hunted by Kenny G!

In this enchanting novel, Matthew Quick takes us inside Pat's mind, showing us the world from his distorted yet endearing perspective. As the award-winning novelist Justin Cronin put it: "Tender, soulful, hilarious, and true, The Silver Linings Playbook is a wonderful debut."

Well, saya penasaran sama buku ini setelah filmnya yang diperanin Jennifer Lawrence menang Oscar.
Saya lebih suka bukunya daripada filmnya. Kenapa ya...mungkin karena di bukunya, Tiffany itu lebih nyata, lebih waras daripada di filmnya. Bukunya sendiri lebih center tentang Pat (karena emang ngambil sudut pandang Pat) sehingga Tiffany itu nggak terlalu ditonjolkan, terutama di beberapa halaman awal.
Yang saya suka adalah keterusterangan Pat dalam memandang hidup. Pat itu sosok yang unik, yang membuat saya lebih suka Pat dalam buku daripada Pat di dalam film.
