Una storia dolorosa nel dolore e nell'amore di una moglie e di una figlia che inseguono cercano il padre che corre via senza mai un motivo, controvoglia. Una storia che ti mette a disagio ma continui a leggerla
The mystery of a life, of any life really, built with words and sentences into unforgetable imagery that will stay in your mind for days. Not unlike the main character in the book, one wants to stop the pull of the story and savor the detail. But motion on you must. The end is just breathtaking, and I found myself holding tears while hovering unseeing on the last 10 lines, unwilling -unable- to continue reading and have the book end.

Tim is a happy man. Married, child, successful attorney. And then it hits again. A mysterious illness that makes him walk. Immediately and far in a kind of daze until he falls asleep, calls home and his wife picks him up. This mysterioius illness is the one thing that Tim can't control. He refuses to believe the cause is psychological and the doctors can't figure it out. Just when he thinks he has it licked and life can be normal again, tt comes back and Tim has to disappear.

The story is compelling, the characters likeable but the author can't quite decide what kind of story this is and how to take it to the end. A story about a family and life's curve balls? A mystery about a murder (Tim is a criminal lawyer)? Life on the road? It is a shame that Ferris couldn't quite decide where to go with this but definitely worth the read. Characters stick to you....Continua
