This novel is full of moments of laughter and tears. I did enjoy the story behind it and the characters. My only complaint I think is it is written from a children’s view point but there are many times that view had to break to speak on more adult aspects and it felt clunky, like she was acting like a child but then moments of talking as an adult, interrupting the flow. Still a worthy read though.

Lion was an inspiration to me, as someone who was also adopted and searching for my family. Every time i watched this film I felt hope for my own search. The acting was perfect and the story beautiful in a way that anyone who knows about adoption and orphanages can relate to. It is not a fun thing to go through, it is ugly, it is painful. This film however shows hope, resilience and determination in the human spirit.

Just make sure it’s the extended version as it contains more scenes and knowledge to the world so the story makes sense. Timeless and classic, it was made before CGI became over prominent in movie industry and in my opinion delivered the scenes in a timeless way.

Growing up I enjoyed horror novels for children, then I grew apart from both horror and books themselves. This is my first horror novel in years and it’s admittedly my first King (though I am no stranger to his style..) I loved the way the world has been build up and the suspenseful questions. I find myself thinking about it when I’m not reading. The world perfectly woven, as I reach the part of the roller coaster before the stomach drop. Will update once finished.

Been a bit all over to be honest. I haven’t touched books in quite some time. Been reading a few Steven King. Revival isn’t too bad but not best either. Just started “later” yesterday. If you like Ove do try Backman’s other novel “my grandmother asked me to tell you she’s sorry.”
