Hardly a page-turner, but read it for the sheer joy of reading,
This review is from: A Box Of Matches (Paperback)
This is one of those books where nothing really happens, but that's not really a bad thing! It is the story of a man who get up every morning very early, while it's still dark, to light the fire with a box of matches.
The narrative takes us through the motions of each of these mornings, and the subsequent day, through his thoughts, and via a series of flashbacks, over some of the events of his life.
Will it keep you on the edge of your seat? No. Is it worth reading for sheer skill of the storytelling? I think so
