Really more of a 3.5. Despite immense tragedy, the characters of this story learned how to move on with their lives. They learned how to wake up every day and keep going. Was the root of this story romance? Sure. Is it a little bit annoying? Sure. But does it work for it? It absolutely does. It wasn’t even only about romance either. It was about them supporting each other and figuring out how to find themselves again; how to pull themselves out of the darkness. It’s sort of beautiful if you think about it that way.
It’s ridiculously sad how in tune the tragedy of this story is with today’s society. This is supposed to be a work of fiction, but this could be someone’s reality. It is a lot of people’s reality and that, for lack of a better phrase, really really sucks.
