The Brave

I have put this book on before, but I decided it was worth a second round. It is a great book. In fact, I love all of Nicholas Evans’ books. He is one of my two favorite authors. I am just sad that he only wrote five books. He, his wife and two friends ate some poison mushrooms. I don’t know the outcome of the other three but Nicholas had a kidney transplant.

As he has in all of his books, he weaved the story together jumping from Tommy’s past life to his current life, but does so in a way that the reader doesn’t get lost. Tommy’s childhood and adult life are filled with heartache, and  there was a sense of foreboding throughout the book which made it hard to put down. There were things that you will be able to figure out and others that will be a surprise. Most of you will find the book hard to put down.

I bought VTech toys for my little nephews last Christmas and for their birthdays. I was so pleased with them they are getting VTech this Christmas. The toys are durable and stand up to the roughness of toddlers. They are safe with no sharp edges and no small pieces to swallow. They are made for small children. With the Smart Wheels Tow and Go Garage you can add extra cars to the set that comes with the garage. Most important, the children love them.
