Omtale fra forlaget
Julian Jessop er lei av å skjule den dype ensomheten han kjenner på. Han bestemmer seg for å skrive sannheten om livet sitt i en liten grønn notatbok som han legger han igjen på den lokale kafeen. Han hadde ikke sett for seg at kaféeieren, Monica, skulle ta kontakt etter å ha lest historien hans. Heller ikke at hun skulle bli inspirert til å skrive sin egen historie. Lite visste Julian og Monica at ærlighetsprosjektet deres skulle få store konsekvenser for andre mennesker, og føre til både vennskap og kjærlighet.

"There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.
“Everyone lies about their lives.
What would happen if you shared the truth instead?
The one thing that defines you, makes everything
else about you fall into place?
Not on the internet, but with those real people around you?"
"a reminder that you have only one life,
and to live it plainly."
This was a breath of fresh air. A unique premise and some characters
that you couldn't help but root for.
So The Authenticity Project, what is it?
Well, Julian is an elderly man who has kept to himself for a very long time.
He thinks people aren't honest with one another so he decides
to write the truth about himself in a green notebook
and he leaves it in a local cafe for someone to find.
The owner of the cafe, Monica, comes across the notebook and decides
to write about some of the things she is most vulnerable about
in her life and then she leaves the notebook in a bar
so another person can have their chance to spill their guts.
And eventually some of the people who have written in the notebook
get a chance to meet, and you'll just have to read the book
to find out what happens next.
The plot might seem a bit far-fetched but it does work for the most part
in the story.
You just kinda have to go with the idea that some people aren't concerned
about their privacy and make it fairly easy for the next reader
of the notebook to figure out their identity.
And sometimes in life it is good to take chances because it can lead you
in a more positive direction.
I think most of us at the core are decent human beings who enjoy helping
others and I loved seeing that play out in this book
with all of these strangers coming together and looking out for one another.
recommend it to anyone looking to read something that has heart
and also restores your faith in humanity just a tad.
