Yes, it’s that time again. I’m sure you all look forward to it as much as I do! It’s time to delve into my pile of books and decide which one gets the spotlight this month.
Since last month my bookcase has welcomed a good few books, because I made the fateful discovery that car boot sales are a really good place to get really cheap books. *Cough* 14 books for under £5 *cough*.
It’s called Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin, and it follows Liz Hall, who is on the cusp of 16, as she lives her afterlife. You see, Liz was the victim of a road accident and at one moment was meeting up with a friend and the next she was waking up on the S.S Nile.
From what I can gather from the blurb (and the little bit I’ve already read) Elsewhere is a place where anything can happen but it’s not all that it’s cracked up to be. it’s a place where people age backwards before they return to Earth.
I’m not going to go into much detail about it (mainly because I’m tired and I fear I may not do the premise justice), but needless to say it sounds like it’ll be a good read!
As always you are welcome to read along and discuss the novel once we’ve finished it!
