|TIS THE SEASON TO BE JOLLY
So you want to give that film or music buff something that he hasn’t heard off recently, or that book worm to try a new author for a change, why not give the latest DVD to complete any collector’s stash, here are the Season’s Best, Love it or Leave it!
Ian Mc Ewan
If you have read his prior work, Amsterdam, you probably are a fan already of McEwan. This heart-tugging masterpiece set in England prior to the break of the war, has the author pull out his best writing and candid wit to make the novel’s young heroine, Briony Tallis come out real for the readers.
This has been a personal childhood thought, whether our loved ones can “still see us from heaven?” Susie Salmon, the novel’s focal heroine, narrates from heaven as she sees her family evolve after her murder. Her unique heavenly transformation is undergone despite being denied a physical growing up by her murderers. Susie learns to let go of the world while the author provides readers a great study on family, loss and desire.
This is a debut novel and we hope that it doesn’t turn out to be a flash-in the pan.
Other great gifts:
Warrior of the Light by Paolo Coelho, Michael Crichton’s Prey, Scott Turow’s Reversible Errors, while these two maybe available in hardcover, there are also paperback new releases worthy of your moolah: Isabel Allende’s, Portrait in Sepia, while Sandra Cisneros’ Caramelo will give you a memory jog with her previous masterpiece The House on Mango Street. Take note of the opening of both books.
