The Son

The Son - Michel Rostain I loved this book from the first to the last page.

The story of a father coming to terms with the death of his son, told from the perspective of his dead son, is both moving and uplifting at the same time. Though it sounds a morbid story, and it is sad, there is a feeling of the celebration of life through out the story.

On occasions it does feel as if the translation misses something, how good would it be if I could read it in the original French?

I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a positive story about how good we are as people at over coming tragedy and carrying on to live full lives despite what has happened.
