Armchair BEA: Literary Blues
Fearless by Tim Lott- Best. Book. Ever. Simple as. End of. Seriously.
This is a kind of dystopic novel, even though I didn't realise it at the time. But it's wonderfully thought up and everything seems to be perfect and harmonious-much like The Other Side of the Island, but perhaps not as post-apocalyptic. Still, it's there: Corporations (as every good dystopia must have), who hide the truth from the public and spread fear and corruption.
It's truly a touching book. The first time I read it, I wept buckets at the end, but once I dried my eyes and blew my nose I smiled in that tragic sort of smile you smile when you read tragic books and something uplifting happens at the end.
