I bought this book for a friends birthday and realised that I hadn’t even read it myself. Knowing I’m down on my classics for the year (personal challenge) it seemed the perfect time to give it a try.
I wasn’t sure how it get on with it but I’m glad I did read it. I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would, and seemed to enjoy it more and more the further I got through (yes I know it’s not long but still!)
On the surface it is a very simple narration but behind it all there is a very a poignant and still relevant message about ageing and the purpose of life.
Thought provoking if you want it to be, a simple nice story about a man and a boy if you don’t want it to be.
If you haven’t given this one a go, or don’t typically like ‘classics’ I’d recommend you give this one a go!
