    1. This book is a short story about dealing with grief. It's such a sad story. As it was short I read it in one sitting. The author showed us all about raw pain in dealing with grief. She also showed us that time can heal & there is always light at the end of the tunnel. The length of that tunnel will depend on how strong we are.This was definetly a well written book which ill recommend to friends.Received from author in return for an honest review.

    2. "Fighting The Impossible" by Author Selina Bodur is a small glimpse into this author's creative and imaginative writing abilities. The story line rings true with the rare possibility that opposites really do attract to the point of love at first sight. There is definitely a romance in the making as Tara's sad tale unfolds.She is standing up for her long time and best friend Claire, at her weddingwhen she runs into Peter, best man to the groom. Their paths continue to cross as they plan and prepa [...]

    3. This is a story about coping with grief. Tara’s memories are triggered in the present day by a scent, by taste, etc yanking her back in the past when she experienced the same scent, etc. on multiple sensual levels while she was happy, in love etc. Then the story crashes back to the present where the same triggers grief for what has been lost yet cannot be given up. I enjoyed the back and forth. I thought it was a creative literary device.There is juxtaposition of how one reacts to the stimuli [...]

    4. Selina Bodur is a special author with a rare gift. She writes in a robust, colorful, dreamy, poetic style while always finding the perfect balance of visual and emotional storytelling. As I read this story, I found it easy to visualize the settings while feeling the roller coaster of emotions that the main character Tara Whyley experienced. Tara’s story is moving and emotional. We’ve all been there; reliving a past relationship that continually plays little videos in our mind. This is the wo [...]

    5. Tara’s best friend, Claire, is getting married to man of her dreams- Tom. There is just one problem, Tom’s best man, Peter. For whatever reason, he just seems to get under Tara’s skin. Until that moment just days before the wedding, when it all changes, and all they seem to want and crave is each other.

    6. I received a copy of Fighting the Impossible for an honest review and it was well worth the read! It had me intrigued from the first page. The movement of the story was what did it for me. Often times I have found myself skipping pages of books in order to get further along in the story. This was not the case with Fighting the Impossible. I could not stop reading until I finished the entire novel. Ms. Bodur’s writing is compelling, not only does the prose flow with in a natural pace, but the c [...]

    7. Book Review: Fighting The ImpossibleBy: Selina BodurWonderful story of true love. By the end, I was in tears. Selina keeps the reader in suspense during the story. Love the writing structure used. How Selina jumps from the present, past, and flashbacks. I enjoyed the creative use of the word, ”Flash” and ”Crack.” How the word,”Flash” prepares the reader to read a flashback. How the word, ”Crack” lets the reader know a heart is breaking more and more each time. Selina's writing is [...]

    8. This book was definitely an emotional ride. The author takes you on a journey of love and loss. How your whole life can change in the blink of an eye. Tara meets Peter at her best friends wedding. Angry at first, but then he works his way into her heart. Claire is worried about Tara because she thinks Peter is a player. Well that was not the case at all. It was love at first site. I definitely can feel the emotions coming from Tara and thats what, for me, is what makes a good book. I would defin [...]

    9. This short story is touching. Had me crying once I figured out what happened.Once I began reading I almost didn't want to continue because of basic grammar issues that never improved. I'm glad that I completed the story because I was amazed at the overwhelming chemistry of the main characters, how well the story played out & saddened by the ending.

    10. This is a very short story that goes from past to present tense. I wondered why for a very short time, then I could see this person was someone suffering from grief and trying to move on.We have all been there in our lives and this book has shown me the potential of this author.Although short, it was very well written.

    11. I was given this book from the author for an honest review andWow I was really sucked into this story from the first page. Bit confusing going from past to present but you get used to it. Would have love if this was longer and really found out if Tara really got over Peter in the months or years later.

    12. First let me preface this review by letting you know I am an editor by trade. This impacted my enjoyment of the story not because the story itself is not good, but because it would have benefited greatly from a solid edit before being released into the world. The meat of the story was moving and well done but as a reader I found myself distanced from the character by a consistent use of passive voice. In part this is due to the fact that I am used to marking such things in manuscripts I review p [...]

    13. Read along as Tara works fights the impossible and works through the all consuming grief of losing her one true love. A mostly decent story of love, loss and finding the joy in life again.I must admit that there were quite a few editing errors in the book, but if you can look past that, I think you will be entertained.

    14. Touching short about love , loss and life . I loved the way the author wrote alternating between past and present - just wish the editing had been better .
