    One thought on “Shadow Life”

    1. I was completely gripped by this story. The tentativeness with which the MCs encounter each other, and each see a hope to be something together which is far greater than they are apart, found me compelled to keep reading into the early hours. The characters are sketched quite sparsely, but beautifully. This is essential, because once the scene is set the plot moves quickly. If it was written differently it would become melodrama, whereas that never seemed to be the case. All the characters seem [...]

    2. Nerve-wracking! I feel like I've been put through the wringerice. Picture a roller coaster ride, slow going up, building up the tension and anticipation, racing down through twists and turns leaving you gasping for air only to slow down and start all over again with the most exciting climax of the ride at the end. This is the story of Jonathan and Peter who are both hiding from their pasts for different reasons. After months living in the same motel they finally officially meet and connect thank [...]

    3. Some books you can't put down until you reach the end. Those are rare enough, but even more rare are the books you can never put down. Their stories stay with you for the rest of your life. You might say they live a sort of "shadow life" inside your head, becoming active when triggered alive by some scene or event. Shadow Life is such a book.Shadow Life started me thinking deeply about a number of serious issues in our modern society, such as,- The truly important things in a person's life are t [...]

    4. 3.5The romance was sweet without being explicit and overall this was a good read. For me, the climax of the book was the best part--Sparks has a way with increasing tension to a point where you become addicted to read on--you just have to in order to know that everything will be okay. I'd recommend this if you like a good splash of action/crime in your read and a tender romance.

    5. Oh dear lord — I started this book and next thing I knew it was 3 in the morning. So I put it aside and went to bed. I woke up and started reading again (luckily it was Christmas break) and then got irritated 'cause I had to stop and attend to real life. I could not stop reading—I had to know what was going to happen to the two of them, and how their pasts were going to converge and be resolved. And for a minute there, I wasn't sure they would! Kudos!
