There were a few lurching momentum moments: supernatural mystery to almost Tom Sawyer-esque boy adventure to haunted house horror montage to supernatural mystery again, all interspersed with brief philosophical ruminations on the nature of time. North shone at his best during the "boys' adventure" segments, drawing the 70s environs and youthful interactions with clarity and deep connection. The final climax of Hugh going forward to meet his penultimate destiny was also especially poingant.
When I finished, I had a pleasant lingering savor of both the ending and subject. I may not have particularly enjoyed the presentation, but neither did the manner that North chose to tell his story hinder it. And in the end, if a book can get us to think, reconsider, even perhaps to dream about our lives well after the final page has passed, it is worthy enough.
Once he started seeing ghosts, it got a little off kilter, but that story was more interesting. The ending was weird and didn't make any sense. The last several chapters were also riddled with spelling errors and omitted words, as if the author spent a lot of time on the beginning, but once he sped up the movement of time, had to rush to finish.
A book that makes the reader sit up and think, to realise that all is not as it seems and neither are people. I will definitely be on the look-out for more Geoff North books.
Best main character written ideas to come along in a while. A
Quick read filled with many tender moments. Good plot development
With many surprises along the way. Strongly recommended.
Would you live the same life or would you try to correct any mistakes you may have made? What if you tried to correct the mistakes and worse mistakes occurred?
This is what happens to Hugh. I cared about Hugh and how he tried to live his second life; how he tried to be kinder and wiser, and that he was still human, even with a second chance.
I'm glad to have found a new author to enjoy.
