A Must Read ... Even If You've Seen The Film
on 16 March 2017
I loved the Tom Hanks film. It immediately draws you in with its atmospheric backdrop to a princely delivering by Mr Hanks as the deadly assassin, Michael "Angel" O'Sullivan, at the top of his game. The beauty of Mr Hank's craft adds delightful layers of colour as we come to know our assassin as a family man, through the eyes of a child, his older son, Michael O'Sullivan, Jnr. His dilemma strikes at us all in the same place, our hearts. Whether you are a parent or not. It's questionable morality notwithstanding, who would argue with Mr O'Sullivan about his choices?
This, however, is something special: the added narration of adult Michael Jnr to each chapter. In italics, and somewhat in retrospect, this additional voice feels right at home. It is poignant, urgent and welcomed. An enduring and compelling tale of love conquering all. Buy it. It will be one of your favourites.
