The Loose Ends Became Knots is a memoir written by the author and focus of the story, Austin M. Hopkins. Austin since a young age has experienced sexual violence and abuse and this, in turn, led to him struggling with his mental health. Throughout the book Austin will poignantly share his story in a moving and informative way, his story at times is incredibly upsetting, but at other times it is inspiring because this is one man’s journey in recovery and along the way he helps and guides his readers which they can apply in their own life. The Loose Ends Became Knots is a collection of Austin’s journals, poems, and even short stories and all of this is weaved perfectly to form Austin’s story which is moving, profound and inspirational.

Austin M. Hopkin’s story is heart-breaking, and anybody will be able to feel for Austin and what he went through. The abuse he endured was the worst kind imaginable, but I do not believe the abuse defines Austin. Austin is a survivor, and he is surviving thanks to his exceptional ability to keep moving forward despite everything he has endured. What I love about Hopkin’s book is the reasons he has written it, it will be clear to readers that Hopkins has written his book to create awareness amongst readers and non-readers and to help those that have struggled or are struggling with abuse all while trying to prevent sexual violence within the gay community.

Austin M. Hopkins is an inspirational man, and I believe all readers should take note of his character and try to apply the same attributes to their everyday life. My review so far has focused on Austin himself but I would love to now discuss his writing ability. The writing throughout the book is sensational, I am incredibly impressed by how well written the memoir is and how it managed to capture my attention from the start and keep me hooked until the very end. The sensitive approach to the story combined with brutally honest moments was a breath of fresh air and ensured that I was hooked from the start.

Overall The Loose Ends Became Knots is a moving, inspirational and informative book that will inspire as well as move its readers with the poignant themes explored, I, of course, have to award the touching book five stars! So please book lovers, do have a read of The Loose Ends Became Knots because it is a moving book that should not be missed.
