My new BEST BOOK EVER

I’ve finally moved on from Gould’s Book of Fish, and this week I have a new BEST BOOK EVER: Rocks in the Belly by Jon Bauer. It was published in 2010 and I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to get around to reading it.

There’s a quote from Bookseller & Publisher on the back cover: ‘Rocks in the Belly is both a masterpiece and a very challenging piece of writing … With this beautiful novel, Bauer teaches us the meaning of “too little too late”, with an ending that is sure to bring a tear to even the most stoic reader’s eye.’

A tear? A tear! I bawled from about halfway through until the end. Powerful. Moving. Confronting. Beautiful. Original. Amazing writer. MUST read.
