A Walk Across The Sun

A Walk Across The Sun

by Corban Addison

I picked this book up when i was in hospital and looking for something to read. I jumped into it without any idea of the content or context and not even having read the description on the back. I was shocked at first then with the subject matter and thought it might be a bit too much for me, but alas, i was already sucked in and so i continued.

The storyline is very good and it felt very realistic, at times I felt like i was reading a documentary rather than a work of fiction. The subject was never over-dramatised, the trafficking subject was handled with incredible sensitivity whilst not shying away from the horrors of what is involved.

Overall, a brilliant, but serious and ‘deep’ read that will leave you thinking for days afterward.

The Racketeer

The Racketeer

by John Grisham

 

Overall a great read, The Racketeer is very typically John Grisham so you know exactly what you are going to get with this one. Different elements of the story were woven together in perfect detail to a satisfying ending. I did get a little bored during the middle but definitely not enough to want to stop reading!
