Quite simply, one of the most beautiful books ever written.
on 6 August 2002
I bought this book because of a recommendation from Oprah's book club, and it is her best yet.
This a gorgeous, intricate and truly thought-provoking story. The characters make your heart sad, sullen and soar by turns, and if you believe in 'love' at a very young age, this might challenge your ideas a bit. If you believe in the sanctity of the relationship and bond between a parent and a child, this is a crushing blow and eye opener to that belief. If you want to read a magnificently written, magnificent story, read Fall on your Knees. You'll read it again, and again.
