I just recently finished “Gold” by Chris Cleave and I loved this book! I discovered it because of a book review on Jasmines Blog. After reading “Little Bee” some time ago I knew I had to read “Gold” too.
Chris has a fantastic ability to build up tension and I love how I can slowly dwell into each character with his books. I love his style of writing and telling the story! Would I have started this book on an afternoon at home I would have read straight through it. And the beautiful cover is a plus too (because yes, I choose books because of their cover …).
I don’t want to ruin the experience for you, so no summary here. But it’s a beautiful story about life, love, death and all the struggles in between. It’s about important decisions, family, illness and success. And a bit about sports too, but don’t let that keep you from reading it.
I suggest you take this book on a lazy beach holiday or read it on a rainy weekend in bed. Enjoy!
