Book Review: Out of Heart By Irfan Master

Summary: Donating your heart is the most precious gift of all.

Adam is a teenage boy who lives with his mum and younger sister. His dad has left them although lives close by. His sister no longer speaks. His mum works two jobs. Adam feels the weight of the world upon his shoulders.

Then his grandfather dies and in doing so he donates a very precious gift – his heart.

William is the recipient of Adam’s grandfather’s heart. He has no family and feels rootless and alone. In fact, he feels no particular reason to live. And then he meets Adam’s family.

William has received much, but it appears that he has much to offer Adam and his family too.

Rating: ❤︎❤︎❤︎


Out of Heart is a very poignant and strong story about grief, friendship and family. This book is a little hard for me to rate as I wasn’t able to finish it despite wanting to really like it. I felt that most of the characters needed more fleshing out.

Adam was an interesting main character as he loves to draw and write words that inspire him in his sketches. Despite the unlikely friendship between Adam and William, I liked how they actually grew to like each other as the book progressed and finally open up to one another about their personal struggles and family lives.

The supporting characters such as Adam’s family was one that I found myself feeling for as they had just lost an important family member-the Grandpa to illness. However, I feel that this is a great book for those dealing with relationship and grief as it really brings new perspective into life and death.

Thank you to Pansing Books for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
