SACRED HUNGER..By BARRY UNSWORTH,
This review is from: Sacred Hunger (Paperback)
I read this book within days of its publication.
Then, stupidly, I did the ONE thing I have always vowed not to do.
Lent my personal copy!!
BUT, I lent it to a dear friend.
And the man expressed his great excitement as he read it.
However, one sad day, my dear friend, suddenly after a bad fall, passed away.
The book, my copy, passed away with him.
I found a used one in a charity shop, and will NEVER lend it...
BUT, another dear friend , in conversation told me she heard what a fine piece of writing it was...
And so I bought for her, a pristine copy of her own..from Amazonnnn!
You see what you've done ?
You succeeded in making 3 people happy.
Unsworth has a gift, of what I call,"silence" in his method of writing.
Silence is a very special instrument of communicating..
and I remember my Father telling me, as I was growing up..
" If you can't say anything more important than silence, say nothing !"
This book holds a lot of 'life' within its covers. I recommend it highly.
