'The Ninth Life of Louis Drax' is the story of nine year old Louis Drax, a boy who is accident prone and believes he is living his ninth life after losing the previous eight (due to his accidents). Louis is very intelligent, precocious and deceitful (for reasons you will find out).
Following a tragic accident when Louis falls into a ravine, at the time he and his parents were enjoying a picnic when the accident occurred, now his father is missing, his mother is in shock and Louis is in a coma.
Louis is admitted to a clinic in Provence under the care of Dr Pascal, as time passes, Dr Pascal finds himself falling for Louis's mother and experiencing other strange occurrences, is Louis reaching out to Dr Pascal? Will Louis get to tell his side of his story?
'The Ninth Life of Louis Drax' is a interesting story about a extraordinary boy who is somewhat misunderstood and mature for his age. I found the story insightful about the power of mind and human nature which I enjoyed.
I liked Louis, he was a interesting character, I enjoyed reading his thoughts.
A great read.
