ConsBook isn't for everyone

Admittedly, I probably wouldn't have nought this book had it not been the Ciao Product of the Week, but when I read the blurb, it did seem like a book that would hold my attention, so I decided to purchase it. I was unable to find much about this book on Amazon, it mainly had quotes from people...

ProAn interesting and easy absorbing read

ConsNone for me

I’m sure I’m not alone in having some experience of living with a family member with some kind of mental health issue.

ConsNot an easy read for everyone

“The Shock of the Fall” by Nathan Filer is one of those books that you see everywhere - on giant posters at tube stations, on the ‘bestseller’ shelves in bookstores and being read on the tube.

ProVery moving book, easy to read

ConsHeart-breaking

The Shock of The Fall I purchased The Shock of The Fall in paperback format from my local Asda store, for a reasonable cost of £4. It is the first (and so far only) novel written by Nathan Filer, and it was first published in 2013. Nathan Filer When I was reading this I thought that it might be a...

Prointeresting and insightful

Consmaybe nor for everyone

***The Shock Of The Fall by Nathan Filer*** When I started reading the book I had no idea what it was about, as the blurb on the back doesn’t really give it away. It had good vibes – Costa book of the year, “You’re going to love it” quotes the Daily Mail, plus a few others say its dark, moving...
