My best book of 2019.

Room 119 - T F Lince

I finished this book over a week ago but I didn't put pen to paper as I was still reeling. This really got to me and it went straight up into my Favourites - my 6* books. It had a kind of a Night Circus (Erin Morgenstern) feel, another one of my favourite books. For me, this hit just the right note between magical and realism, and I'm not easy to please.


It starts off pretty mundanely, so don't give up when you find yourself on the trading floor, juggling stocks. It soon veers off in a totally different direction, when Dean Harrison gets a serious wake-up call and he has to rethink his priorities.

The characters in this novel are great, but it's the circles that they swerve around in that awed me. Really, so many loops and surprises. Aided and abetted by an amazing narrator, Jade McLean, this could become the first audiobook that I re-listen to.


I won't say more as I don't want to spoil this for other readers, but I actually envy anyone starting this book for the first time.
