I have just finished a very different book that you might want to try out. The book is called Click and the story details the life of a photojournalist and his grandchildren. Seems like a typical story right? Well it would be if it wasn’t a story written by ten different authors.
The idea all came about when publisher Arthur Levine posed the idea of a multi-author book to Ruth Ozeki. She, of course, thought he was mental but the project took off and soon nine other authors were on board to write one chapter each.
I picked this book up because I saw Roddy Doyle and Nick Hornby, both authors I have loved in the past.
The book is interesting, I really liked how the story started and my favorite story was called Lev. Nothing like a story about a horrible Russian prison to make a good children’s story.
In the end the story is a little hard to follow as you jump back in time and forward into the future, but I enjoyed reading how each author took the challenge of writing about this man and his family.
