I lost a day to this book and don't regret it at all. The title was intriguing and i thought why not? So glad i picked this up, the characters pulled me in at once but it was the gentle, thoughtful style of the writer that kept me reading. Her gentle but thorough exploration of this emotion was inspiring. We so rarely let ourselves explore this heart wrenching, tender emotion, that it felt precious to do so. Its not a self help book, but it is based on the lives of real people and feels like reading their stories validates our own a ittle too. Wonderful insight into the human condition.

I enjoyed the fact this was something different and it was Australian. I think this book will resonate with people in different ways depending on where they are in their life. It made me appreciate how debilitating depression is for people and how horrible it must be to have that negative dialogue going on inside your head. We have all experienced heartbreak in our lives so we can relate in some way.

I loved Heartsick. Such very different protagonists, yet relatable aspects in each of their experiences. Wonderfully written, easily absorbed. Whether you've survived heart break or not, you will be touched. Just read it.

This book is beautifully written. It’s about real people and their experiences with heartbreak. It’s not maudlin or mushy, it’s just very real. I’ll keep this author on my list of must read and eagerly await her next book.

As someone who wouldn't think of themselves as being able to relate to a book about heartbreak, I was caught off-guard by how quickly I was able to connect and relate to the subject matter. Jessie has tapped into something so universal and compelling and she's done an amazing job in telling these stories and exploring the subject.

Smart. True. Brilliant.Reviewed in Canada on 11 April 2021
"As time goes by, we tend to forget our lows and remember only the happy times to protect our beings from disaster." The author proved this quote wrong. On our planet, there is no such thing as "perpetual happiness." And I pity those believing that they will have it on the next life in Heaven; they are the saddest people of all. After reading Jessie's book, l confirmed what I believed all my life: our life is the sum of zero for most of us. The highest peaks are followed by the lowest of the low.
