I love it when I can’t put a book down. I read three books that were like that.
First, The Golden Child by Abigail Tarttelin. Max Walker was born a hermaphrodite and raised as a boy. His lawyer parents keep this knowledge from everyone, including Max’s younger brother. Something happens that throws off every appearance of normality, and brings into question the role and rights of parents to make decisions for their children.
Then, back- to -back without stopping, two of Jojo Moyes‘s romance novels.
The Last Letter from Your Lover celebrates that old-fashioned way of communicating. Often while reading I wished the characters had cell phones to contact each other! Me Before You addresses the right to die debate.
I also saw Jobs, the movie about Apple founder Steve Jobs. The story takes us up through the mid-1990’s. I wished it had gone further. Fascinating and well-acted. I borrowed Walter Isaacson’s biography from the library. It’s over 600 pages so I won’t be reading it as quickly.
So I need some suggestions! What books have you read that you couldn’t put down?
