I've read, The Shock of the Fall

by Nathan Filer


This is another book I just picked up based on the cover (as I guess most books are). It didn't turn out to be anything like what I had expected. In this book you get to know Matt. When Matt is a child, about seven I think, his older brother Simon dies. We get to follor Matt as he grow older, with him telling the story about his life, his brothers death and how that influences him. As I write it, it sounds like any other story about grief, but it is not.


It is in many ways a very sad story. An unusually touching story. And in my opinion extremely well written one. Not at all like what I usually read, but strange and in a way lovely. It left an impression.


You should read it too.
