This is the third book by King that I have read and it was even better than the first two. There was a bit of magical realism mixed in with some serious realism. The story follows five teen agers and their very difficult lives and we discover the root (see the book cover for the pun) of all of their problems. This book addresses poverty, racism, and family. I highly recommend this thought provoking and pulls at your heart strings book.
If you have seen the movie, it is almost the same. If you haven’t seen the movie, I highly recommend the book.
Poe has vowed to annihilate the river raiders who robbed her of everything two years ago. But as she navigates the treacherous waters of the Serpentine and realizes there might be a traitor among her crew, she must also reckon with who she has become, who she wants to be, and the ways love can change and shape you. Even—and especially—when you think all is lost.
Paulo Coelho’s masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago’s journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life’s path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.
