The Time Traveller’s Wifi

Have I got your attention? Then I’ll begin.

Seeing as I’m now acquainted with more than one published novelist, Patsy Collins being one, I couldn’t let World Book Night slip by without mentioning the book I picked up: The Time Traveller’s Wife, a first novel by Audrey Niffenegger. It was the Evening Standard’s recommendation on the front cover, “Here’s the next The Lovely Bones… A rare book”, which caught my attention! You see, I read the Lovely Bones only a few weeks ago and was swept into the eyes of a child who told her tragic tale from a world beyond the physical. I read it from “My Name was Salmon, like the fish; first name, Susie” right through to “I wish you all a long and happy life.”

It was a real treat to attend a literary event, on both Shakespeare’s birthday and  St George's Day, and it set me a pondering as to what books those two boys would have picked up! Me finks George would have been lured by I Capture The Castle, by Dodie Smith, and there’s much a do with Roald Dahl’s Someone Like You, for William to peruse.

What book did you, or would you, choose?
