The Fifie by Marco Collina is a literature book that is so amazing, full of emotions and suspense, which profoundly explains love and how it affects those who experience it. The novel has twenty-seven chapters that explore intimate relationships among young adults of opposite sexes, the consequences of the wrong choice of partner, and regrets for a lost intimacy. Though not clearly written in this book, the book has two parts: the beginning chapters talk about two young lovers, while the later chapters talk about different couples who chose the wrong partners early but later traced themselves after a couple of years of marriage.

The author begins the book with a hard-working young adult orphan, Marcas, the only child of the family, who works for his uncle, Thomas, an adept seaman, as a captain and ship repairer. One day Marcas was invited by Mr. Collen. Honoring the invitation, Marcas met Maureen, his daughter. After encountering Maureen, both fell in love, and their relationship grew and waxed stronger on a daily basis. The subsequent chapters of the novel, like the first few, tell the tale of Mark and Marla, two couples from different households who fell in love the moment they met. Yet as the novel came to a close, Mark lost his closeness to Marla, which hurt him. To get the full gist, please get a copy.

The positive aspects of this book, which are also what I love about it, include the well-arranged plot setting and the simplicity of the writing style. Each of the chapters does not have too many pages. It is a concise story that engages the reader, making the story real, full of humor and suspense, and written in English without ambiguity. Again, the book is free from vulgar and offending words in the sense that everyone can be comfortable reading it.

According to the author, "love" is something abstract that you cannot touch or hold. I learned to love, stay in love, and grow in love. I learned that whenever you meet a compatible partner, you will experience genuine and lasting love, especially when both of you have like minds. Again, from the book, I learned that sometimes we are the cause of our own grief, as when Mark allowed Marla to travel far away from him and was filled with agony after a lasting absence. Again, I also learned that once there is a bridge of communication for a long time, the love dies off.

There is nothing negative I found in this book. Also, I didn't dislike the book for any reason, as it is interesting and engaging with no vulgar words. The book does not have any profane words. There are no typos, grammatical, or spelling errors that I detected, which shows that the book is exceptionally well-edited. For this reason, I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars. I recommend this book to all young people so they can understand how to select a spouse, build love, maintain love, and grow in love after reading it. I also recommend it to young couples that will learn how to stay and grow in love and to those interested in love stories.
