Kurzbeschreibung

Sometimes in life, in order to move forward you must face the past…

#1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover held readers spellbound with her novel Hopeless, the story of what happened when a troubled girl named Sky encountered a long-lost childhood friend, Dean Holder. With Holder’s help, Sky uncovered shocking family secrets and came to terms with memories and emotions that had left deep scars.

Hopeless was Sky’s story. Now, in Losing Hope, we finally learn the truth about Dean Holder.

Haunted by the little girl he couldn’t save from imminent danger, Holder’s life has been overshadowed by feelings of guilt and remorse. He has never stopped searching for her, believing that finding her would bring him the peace he needs to move on. However, Holder could not have anticipated that he would be faced with even greater pain the moment they reconnect.

In Losing Hope, Holder reveals the way in which the events of Sky’s youth affected him and his family, leading him to seek his own redemption in the act of saving her. But it is only in loving Sky that he can finally begin to heal himself.

Ich würde gern 4,5 Sterne vergeben, aber leider geht das nicht.
Als großer Colleen Hoover Fan war ich sehr gespannt auf dieses Buch.
Ich habe schon ihre Bücher Slammed & Point of Retreat, This Girl: A Novel und Hopeless gelesen.
Slammed und Point of Retreat bekommen von mir 5 Sterne, This Girl und Hopeless "nur" 4.
Die 4,5 Sterne daher für dieses Buch, da es mir besser gefällt als Hopeless aber nicht so gut wie Slammed;-)
An Slammed kommt für mich fast nichts anderes heran.
Aber nun zum eigentlichen Buch Losing Hope.

Losing Hope ist die Geschichte von Hopeless aus der Sicht von Holder.
Hopeless wurde ja aus der Sicht von Sky geschrieben.
Ich rate also jedem, zuerst Hopeless zu lesen.
Dieses Buch bietet unglaublich mehr an Hintergrund Geschichte von Holder.
Diese ist wunderschön geschrieben, wie alle Bücher von Colleen Hoover.
Es fesselt einen beim Lesen und selbst wenn man Hopeless schon kennt, hängt man bis zletzt an jeder Seite des Buches.
Ich möchte nicht zu viel verraten und nicht auf inhaltliche Details eingehen.
Aber ich empfand das Buch zum Teil atemberaubend, herzzerreißend und ich war oft den Tränen nahe.
Es ist wirklich sehr gelungen und es lohnt sich!

I've listend to the first book on audiobook and couldn't get enough, so I decided to read losing hope this time and I absolutly love it. However the story is retold from another point of view its as suspicious as the first book.

Es ist nun knapp ein Jahr vergangen seit seine Zwillingsschwester Leslie sich unvermittelt das Leben genommen hat und Deans ganze Welt damit zum zweiten Mal völlig auf den Kopf gestellt wurde. Die vergangenen Monate hat er bei seinem Vater verbracht, was für die wildesten Spekulationen unter seinen Mitschülern gesorgt hat, doch es kümmert ihn nicht, was andere über ihn denken.

Das ändert sich als er Sky trifft, denn sie sieht seiner Kindheitsfreundin Hope, nach der er seit dem Tag ihrer Entführung vergeblich sucht, zum Verwechseln ähnlich. In diesem Punkt scheint sich Dean zwar zu irren - der Name auf ihrem Ausweis lautet tatsächlich Sky und sie erkennt ihn offenbar auch nicht wieder - dennoch stört es ihn sehr, dass ausgerechnet Sky den vielen Gerüchten Glauben schenkt, die inzwischen über ihn in Umlauf sind …

Bevor man zu Losing Hope greift, sollte man wissen, dass es sich dabei nicht um eine gewöhnliche Fortsetzung des Vorgängers handelt, sondern vielmehr um eine Nacherzählung des ersten Bandes aus der Sicht von Dean Holder. Deshalb sollte man diesen nur dann lesen, wenn man so etwas mag und nichts dagegen hat mehr oder weniger die gleiche Handlung noch einmal zu erleben, denn unerwartete Wendungen, insbesondere in Bezug auf die Beziehung von Sky und Holder, kann und wird es somit zwangsläufig nicht geben.

Die Handlung beginnt wenige Tage vor Leslies Selbstmord, dem zweiten einschneidenden Ereignis in Holders Leben. Durch die Schilderung des gesamten Geschehens aus seiner Perspektive kann man seinen Schmerz, seine Trauer sowie seine Wut sehr gut nachempfinden und leidet mit ihm.

It's not an meaningless, useless love story like so many other. It gets you to think and has many facets, love, friendship and death..

HASH(0x92e6633c) von 5 Sternen Stunning 8. Juli 2013
Von Danielle @ What Danielle Did Next - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
My review of Hopeless is a more balanced review dealing with both the emotion and the plot. This is more a treatise of the effects both Hopeless and Losing Hope had on me as a reader. The plot of Losing Hope is stellar, that is beyond question, the emotion is devastating, the characters unforgettable. The experience...read on -

There was one word that described my experience reading Hopeless and writing its review: Brutal. I didn't think anything could surpass that but Losing Hope has destroyed me. Every emotion that I drowned in whilst reading Sky's story came flooding back and swept me under until by the end I felt like I was gasping for breath and could go on no longer. Needless to say I've pretty much curled up in a ball, trying to think all the happy thoughts since then.

I actually broke down sobbing at the dinner table telling my family about the book and couldn't eat. I'm sobbing now writing this review. I knew it would be affecting after how I let Hopeless in but I honestly didn't think Holder's story would be as brutal and upsetting. To be honest for most of the book I was able to remain at a distance from the story, a curious observer. I knew what was coming so I felt prepared. I could cope with all the shocks, I had cried with Sky, I knew Holder couldn't possibly be worse, after all, he was almost an observer like me right? Wrong.

Holder's grief is palpable. A pulsing entity of pain and sadness from page one. Hoover with an unrelenting pace drags us along with Holder through his sister's suicide, his guilt at not being able to save her, his heart's momentarily leap of optimism when he first meets Sky and believes she is his childhood friend, the doubt that creeps in as he gets to know her and his joy at falling for Sky, his wish that Hope is at peace and that this exceptional young woman is someone he can forge a future with, a future with Sky filled with anticipation and belief in good and not a reminder of HopeLess - a life of regret.

There aren't enough adjectives to describe the roller-coaster of emotional turmoil, happiness, fleeting joy, crushing blows and eventual peace that one experiences reading this book.

The story is familiar but there are small moments, moments where Sky's perception of Holder's actions shaped her story only for us as the readers to discover they were something completely different. At all times his goal was to protect Sky from a pain so immense surely no-one could survive it. Her strength coupled with his love formed a bond stronger than titanium and together they were able to face the horrifying events that tainted their combined pasts. Holder's self-blame is heartbreaking to read and you can't help but sympathise and rejoice as he discovers his own personal form of therapy, writing in his sister's notebook, sharing his thoughts, paving his path to healing with moments of joy mingled with crushing pain. It's gut punching at its best.

The chemistry between Sky and Holder is almost overwhelming when combined with his colliding wishes that she is indeed the friend he has never forgiven himself for losing and his desire that she really is Sky so he can protect her from the inevitable pain of coming to terms with a stolen childhood. It is beyond upsetting as the memories from Hopeless come flooding back and the feeling of helplessness as you watch two people desperately try to survive a pain that cuts deeper than the sharpest knife edge and struggle to endure it and come out the other side with scars that hopefully will heal.

There are moments of light relief which are a welcome distraction but never quite ease the heavy ache in the pit of your stomach. As the book progresses my role as curious observer became a struggle to maintain and then Chapter Forty-seven-and-a-half happened...

Holder says that Devastation is something that should only be allowed to refer to mothers who have lost children - by the end of this chapter I can honestly say that it can be used by readers of this book too. The past that we think we have finally got a grip on, the story we think we know is ripped from our trusting souls and turned completely on its head.

There are no words that can really do this book justice and my paltry attempt above is unworthy but suffice to say the story is one that will never leave me. I ended my review of Hopeless with a sentence that I think is only fitting that it be included as an edited version here too as it truly encapsulates all the FEELS -

This story of Sky and Holder captivated me from the stunning prologue of Hopeless through reveal after reveal after reveal until the ending of Losing Hope when I thought I finally had it all figured out and no way could I be bested again when my knees were taken out from under me and I was once again left me breathless, speechless but thankfully - not hopeless.

HASH(0x92e66390) von 5 Sternen Laugh out loud. 8. Juli 2013
Von Aubrey Reads - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
It took me a few days to finish Losing Hope because life kept getting all up in my damn way. And then I had to take a few more days to reflect. It's one of those books that need reflection, because you just have to find one thing that isn't beautifully perfect.

Which I couldn't do, by the way.

This was definitely a Hoover book. Not only does it completely suck you in, but the words are absolute magic. Somehow, once again, Colleen takes these simple letters and rearranges, bends, and fits them into something that is nothing less than a piece of art.

I'm sort of a self-proclaimed Will lover, or just Slammed in general. I know, you're probably wondering what the hell Will has to do with this. Well, when I read Hopeless I definitely liked it. It was well written, I liked the story, and I could see a few rereads in the future. Losing Hope?

Holy crap.

Sorry Will, you've been moved. Holder has pushed Will out, sat his ass down, and taken camp in that spot. As Holder cracks open his beer and gets comfortable, he's giving Will the "Better luck next time, buddy." look.

I can't wait to finish these next few books I have to read just so I can get back to Holder for another read.

Losing Hope begins with us meeting Holder pre-Sky. It's actually Les who we initially learn about, and Colleen does not waste any time in taking us down a notch. Oh no, this book does not begin on a high note at all. We knew it was going to happen, but damn, woman. Go big or go home, right?

We watch the fallout, and why Holder becomes the person he is. How he was forced to handle the situation, and choices he made, which all lead up to meeting Sky. This isn't short, Colleen takes her time giving us the base to Holder. And those letters? I could not think of a better way to express what needed to be said to the reader. It was heartbreaking, the pain and different stages of coping were evident, and we got the information we needed.

I adored Daniel, Holder's BFF. The way he supported Holder upon returning to school was the best. The students and teachers were unpleasant and Daniel made me laugh. A lot.

So did Holder.

"Every single shelf is stuffed with Les's jeans. They're all folded neatly on the shelves of the refrigerator and it pisses me off because this is where the food should be and I'm ducking hungry."

Okay, so Holder finally meets Sky. I think seeing it all from his perspective actually made the story better. The way he so thoroughly loves her. Takes care of her. Even while dealing with his own steamy pile of crap, he makes hers better.

There are important parts throughout Hopeless that I was dying to see from Holder's POV. Dramatic moments that I can't really put out there without spoiling, but seeing them through Holder? Ohmigod, emotions. Normally, I'd say that is a bad thing, but I couldn't stop reading.

Even the parts that weren't so vital or climatic were better through Holder.

"Right now. She said right now. That's nice because I conveniently don't have any prior engagements right now. I can do right now."

I loved seeing Sky through Holder's eyes. The way he adored and accepted her. Accepted her crazy lifestyle, and no-pregnancy requests by Sky's mom. I think Sky was even funnier from Holder's side,

"Laugh out loud.
She actually typed laugh out loud.
I really do lol, then I put my phone in my pocket and head to my car."

The ending to Losing Hope far exceeds Hopeless, but for a reason. This is Holder's ending, not Sky's. We needed more for Holder to be settled because his story was more deeply tangled. It was brought together beautifully, and ended in the most perfect way.

I wanted to go more in-depth with the story, but I can't without spoiling either Hopeless or Losing Hope. So you'll have to trust me when I say this book is the best yet from Colleen-ducking-Hoover.

Oh, and Colleen? Nice product placement.

Laugh out loud.

Von Momma Romance - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

So excuse me while I fangirl just a bit on this because this book was AMAZING!\

I'll be honest, when I first heard that Colleen Hoover was going to do an alternate POV for Hopeless I thought it was a horrible idea. Hopeless was such an amazing book (see my review here) I was really worried that it would be like other POV books that were almost literally the same book rewritten with little tidbits thrown in for the sake of calling in an alternate POV.

But holy wow was I proved wrong! Colleen Hoover found a way to write Dean Holders story without it sounding anything like a copycat of the original book, there is so much in the book that was unexpected. And the way she did it was just genius (you'll see what I mean...but I don't want to give it away!) It was like a brand new book! I was in tears by the 3rd chapter and was immediately reminded why I loved Hopeless so much. Now don't get me wrong, it's an alternate POV so there are plenty of times where the book will coincide with Hopeless but it was written so well that I actually had to double take a few times! The best part was that we finally get answers to some of the questions about Holders life from the first book!

And the ending......OMFG, I totally ugly cried (and I was in the freaking drive-thru!!) but it was the most perfect ending. I easily give Losing Hope 5 stars because I wouldn't change a single thing!

*Note: I received this ARC via NetGalley in return for an honest review*

How disappointing! A waste of money. This book is almost a duplicate of the first book but told from "Holders" point of view. Never have I been so disappointed in a book!!! An entire duplicate except for the last few pages. Don't waste your time or money!!!!!

HASH(0x92e66450) von 5 Sternen How can I not love this? 8. Juli 2013
Von Eleanor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
4-4.5 stars.

I've been waiting for Holder's take on Hopeless for months.
Colleen Hoover did such a fantastic job with Hopeless that I hoped Holder's book will be half as good. Naturally, we all love and adore Holder. His faith and infinite love for this little girl he feels that as a young boy he disappointed and still feels responsible for her fate, and the heart wrenching story of Sky told from a Holder's point of view... There was little chance of the readers to be disappointed.

The book opens a year prior to where Hopeless started, we learn of Leslie's death and Holder's coping with her death, and we learn how and why he was absent for the past year that preceded his meeting Sky.

I. Felt. Such. Heartache. Reading the beginning of this book, and I love that Hoover included it, as it sets Losing Hope aside from Hopeless. It sets the tone to Holder's profound devastation, and it explains much about his actions and decisions regarding Sky in Hopeless and here in Losing Hope.

When the slow burning torture of the first kiss to end all kisses began, I had rush of all the emotions that flooded me during the first read of Hopeless.
I'm pretty sure it's too soon to love her, but shit. She's got to stop doing and saying these unexpected things that make me want to fast-forward whatever's going on between us. Because I want to kiss her and make love to her and marry her and make her have my babies and I want it all to happen tonight.

This book felt sweet, swoony and achy, but was very rewarding. Granted, knowing the whole story (almost?) I didn't feel the earth-shattering reveal of the tragedy they experienced, all in his own way, but I did very much enjoy the part where Holder learns the truth on Sky, on Leslie and on what their mother knew. And that little extra at the end.

I very much recommend Losing Hope to anyone who enjoyed Hopeless, who enjoys Colleen Hoover's words, and appreciate making lemonade out of very sour lemons.

Thank you NetGalley and Simon & Schuster for this advanced reading copy, in exchange for an honest review.
