The title of the post, this doesn't mean it's the first book I've ever read. Don't be silly. That was Tolstoy's 'War and Peace'. I read a lot so I thought I would give my opinions on the books I read. This is the first book I'm giving my opinion on. Will contain spoilers, but I'll try not to ruin it too much.
I'm always a bit in awe of people who review books, the depth they go into the story and the whys and wherefores. I tend to read books and I love them or hate them. Don't expect any highbrow literary shenanigans from me. Put it this way, I would be out of place in a book club, unless "THIS? Was SHIT!" counts as an adequate critique. This is my opinion, not a review. Occasionally though, a book will leave a lasting impression on me, for several reasons, not always because it made me cry (Time Traveler's Wife - Audrey Niffenegger), or laugh until there was snot (The Tent, The Bucket and Me - Emma Kennedy) or Chick Lit that unexpectedly broke my heart and made me cry with snot (Let's Meet on Platform 8 - Carole Matthews). This, however, was a book that I lost a whole night's sleep over.
This is the book description from Amazon:
