I loved this book from the first to the last pageThe story of a father coming to terms with the death of his son told from the perspective of his dead son is both moving and uplifting at the same time Though it sounds a morbid story and it is sad there is a feeling of the celebration of life through out the story On occasions it does feel as if the translation misses something how good would it be if I could read it in the original FrenchI would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a positive story about how good we are as people at over coming tragedy and carrying on to live full lives despite what has happened

The Son by Michel RostaErsonal journey through grief but the twist that makes the journey truly remarkable and tips this true story into fiction is the fact that we see it all through Lion's eyesIn a stunningly original blurring of memoir and fiction THE SON tackle. The Son is the June selection from the Waterstones Eleven debut authors It is a highly emotional and moving read that blends memoir and fiction seamlessly exploring grief and loss through the son’s eyes after his death as he watches his parents specifically his father Michel come to terms with their loss Lion dies uite suddenly and unexpectedly after succumbing to the horror that is meningitis and the story is told by flipping backwards and forwards from just before his death to his actual death the funeral and the time afterwards which can only be described as heart breakingI read somewhere that there are no words to describe parents who have lost a child When we think of the word “orphan” we automatically picture a child who has lost their parents but do we use the same word to describe parents who have lost their child Especially since it is usually expected that parents will die before their children so to have the tables turned so as to speak must be a horror that is indescribable I found the section describing Lion’s illness especially when it worsened particularly hard to read and it must have been incredibly difficult to write The uote below was particularly poignant“We don’t yet know when we’ll die but the unknown is only ever two numerals away”Throughout it all despite the immense grief and suffering Michel comes across as a strong talented and admirable individual – the sub title of the book being This is not a book about death It’s a book about life” I respect the author for the strength it must have taken to write this book and enjoyed the moments of humour and the richness of the writing I highly recommend it as a truly thought provoking novel which offers hope and positivity for the future aheadPlease see my full review at
