Just when I thought that there were no books around where the writter used words beautifully and I had the feeling that the stories I was reading all seemed the same, I was given a book by my sister that has just blown me away. Day's Without End is a story about the wild west in North America.
It is so intensely beautiful and terrible that I can only read one chapter a day. The beautiful words describe terrible things in such a way that you know the situations and characters are often horrific but also beautiful and you are able to read the words and feel both the beauty and the horror whilst being engrossed in the story.
This is my first book by Sebastian Barry. I have looked up all his other books and intend to try and read every other one. These are the ones I want to start with.
But I know there are more. Including some movies. I think these will keep me busy for most of 2022.
