This is a choose your own adventure novel, which means that you are the character. This is different from most reading, where you read about characters. Because of this, it is even more important in reading this book to get into character and suspend yoru disbelief of "that's not how it works" if you are to get out of the novel what the author intends:
"When you've reached the end of your journey, go back to the beginning and start over again, because everybody deserves a second chance- and everybody could always be somebody else."
From that, I think it is clear this book is about building empathy and learning that life is more complicated and difficult. And each path that you take in the book leaves you wondering and thinking about "your life".
The first path I took led me to being a saleswoman, and I chose to have morals, which cost me my job. This is where playing yoru character becomes important. Since I knew what having morals got me, I ended up deciding that I will do anythign for my daughter, even being a meth lord. I tried to still do good, improve the community with the money I got from the meth business, but when I died, I was left wondering if the means really did justify the ends. Did they? I helped people, but how many people did i get addicted, and what happened to them?
the second path I took led me to getting a doctorate, and since I was so determined, when it came to takign care of the clinic I was assigned to or myself, the choice was obvious. I couldn't give up take care of myself, and I ended up helping the entire community. Though I died quietly at night, and I think I did feel happy, that it was worthwhile to help others more than myself.
So far, I also like teh way she ends each path in the novel: it's nto always clear that you died or how you felt about your life in the end. On the first path, I was like, wait, there's no choices to make- oh, I really did die. I just died!
So, I've read several more paths in the book, and I think it is quite enlightening. There are many tough choices that we get to make in reading the book, like staying with a man that you were once in love with as the passion dies down or fall in love with a new man that you can get into fun banters with, staying with someone you love or chasing your dream, beign with someone for the money or being with someone becuase of love, etc etc. These are actual choices that people have to make in their lives, and when you read the book and play the character, these choices are so much more difficult to make.
I do think this book isn't for everyone, because it does require a certain level of roleplaying, which can be uncomfortable, especially given some of the decisions you have to make in the book. But I enjoy this book, so, I'll leave it at that.
