Hand Me Down World
By Lloyd Jones
Enraptured from the first page. This author will be on my must read list as his style paints word pictures that are clear and yet the tale is opaque enough to add a little mystery.
Story telling by the third person we expect but this is just the second remove and the development of the main character is superb.
Just a touch from each of the influencers in this remarkable journey through life has painted a personality rather than just a physical being. The reader still has no idea what this attractive woman looks like or what her given name is and yet she lives and breathes and is real.
The author paints each of the participants clearly as personalities rather than people and the story hold together extremely well
I hesitate between an all-time high of 8 and 7.5 so take your pick
Page reference Chapter 8 Page 59 is one of many
Par B ‘In this park” to the end of that paragraph.
