Description

How he went on a road trip with his father, Francis, a journey that had a really rather shocking end and one that has haunted him into his present.

Lockdown and being furloughed from work has meant that I have more spare time than ever and therefore more time to read! Without spoiling anything, the book trudges along until it explodes halfway and brings you upon a scene of devastation and the aftermath can only be lived on through the mind. The gentle, steady incline up the tension stakes was tempered with vulnerability and behind this is the allure of those earlier words.

A Station on the Path to Somewhere Better is a deeply psychological story with creative twists that shock and captivate. It was at the end of the chapter, where Wood takes a huge risk in the writing and breaks a well-known rule…never tell the reader what is going to happen at the start of the story… I read the words that end chapter one; As we drove off, [Mum] was smiling at herself, a limp hand spread across her heart. She’s sure Albert is from her planet, because normally people can’t see or hear her, and Albert can do both.

Still, when I think about that August week and what transpired, I know it is the fault line under every step forward I try to make.As his story unfolds, you don't really find the suspense that is promised on the cover, but more of a sadness for him. For the characters a nightmare, for the reader an exciting thriller, now slow, then accelerating, then again fading into a dreary hopeless irreversibility.

Travelling well beyond his earlier fiction, Wood has produced a tour de force that marks his creative arrival. Tony and Susan: путешествие с папой, которое так неплохо начиналось и сулило двенадцатилетнему герою множество радостных событий, превращается в золотую жилу для психотерапевтов.Full of drama and emotion, and a lot of bad behaviour, Daniel soon begins to realise that the end of the journey will not be what was promised but he is powerless to stop the wheels once they have been set in motion.
