The Other Hand by Chris Cleave

The Other Hand by Chris Cleave

This book moved me.

I read a lot and derive some form of pleasure from the vast majority of books.

But to be moved is unusual.

This book made me reconsider my views on an important contemporary issue.

This book made me laugh on several occasions.

Particularly the exchange early in the book between one of the two main characters and a taxi driver who looks like Brian May from Queen.

This book kept surprising me all the way through to the end.

An end which I didn’t see coming.

Which, like being moved, is unusual.

The blurb on the back cover says…

“We don’t want to tell you what happens in this book. It is a truly special story and we don’t want to spoil it.”

Having read the book, I now understand that this is not the marketing hyperbole that I assumed it to be.

Having read the book I feel the same way. Do as I have done and only read the reviews and the back stories after you’ve read the book itself.

But read this book.
