And finally we couldn’t leave without telling you some of the excellent books that we have been reading.
First up The Hypnotist by Laurence Anholt. What a fabulously brilliant teen read. Set in American 1963; Pip (a young boy) is sold to a southern American Farmer who befriends Jack Marrow a university professor/ hypnotist, but racial tension is brewing and Pip is in immediate danger. This gripping book gives a suburb voice to Southern America, deals with disturbing racial issues and cleverly combines fact of the period. Don’t miss this one!!!
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, by Gail Honeyman
We can highly recommend this book! It tells Eleanor’s story, from a boring, routine everyday existence, shattered when she gets involved in helping someone, and her small life grows and she becomes a real person, able to relate to other people. She slowly reveals and acknowledges her troubled past. At times funny, other times moving, but always an interesting and enjoyable read!
