Format: Paperback
In the land of Ferdinand Marcos you quickly learn to be tough". These are the first words on the back cover of A Comfortable Death, a novel inspired by real life in the Philippines over Marcos' regime.
John Raynor, the author of the book, fell in love with the country and particularly with one of its inhabitants, who is now his wife. He then started collecting experiences to tell the story of a young girl turning into a woman, through many tough moments and hard decisions.
In a very simple prose, Raynor tells the story of Lisa, whose destiny seems to be decided since her birth. A blessed girl, whose beauty hits anyone who looks at her; over the course of events, she turns a militant, a housekeeper, a nurse. She never forgets values as honesty and love which she has been taught as a child. With a pending promise of avenging her grandmother in her hearth, she commits herself to keep her dignity of woman alive.
A comfortable death is a tough and absorbing novel, a proud and bright picture of the Philippines of the last century, made credible not only by research but also by the author's personal experiences.

A moving yet enthralling text. John Raynor definitely knows how to keep a reader turning the pages.

Format: Paperback
A very good read. It makes the reader view what life is actually like in other countries and you gain much empathy for the characters. The book was easy to read and I couldn't put it down! I also would like to read the follow-up.
