The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah
I read The Nightingale by @kristinhannahauthor many moons ago and I really, really enjoyed it. Some time later, I got my hands on this and I must say, for me, it was *even* better.
I firmly believe different books do different things. If you’ve had a hard time, you might turn to a book that offers advice. If life is feeling intense, you might want to read something light-hearted and funny.
Sometimes, though, you might just feel like you want to escape and when that happens, I think the sense of place that a book evokes is absolutely key. There is no book that has achieved this for me as successfully as this one. The Great Alone literally picked me up off my sofa and dropped me in the remotest part of Alaska. I stayed there firmly throughout the entire novel and I genuinely haven’t forgotten it since.
The Great Alone has deservedly received endless dazzling reviews. If you haven’t read it, I urge you to — given that we are still largely living in a world where we are mostly staying put, @kristinhannahauthor will transport you, through incredibly crafted characters and magical prose. READ IT.
