I took time out now and again so that I could think about the content and understand the characters better.
Zoe’s childhood is catastrophic after the separation and eventual divorce of her parents. She always felt she had to strive to get her fathers attention and when he left the family home her inner turmoil turns into an obsession to get her parents back together.
On her 16th birthday she leaves home causing her long suffering mother untold anguish. Amanda’s relationship with hunky Scott is destroyed by Zoe so when Jude her son leaves for university she finds herself alone and forever wondering what happened to Zoe.
There are so many issues explored within this book and as their complicated lives unravel, the family come back together, a mothers love overcoming all else.
The road to Zoe is a brilliant observation of human emotion and mental anguish, touching on many issues that are relevant to society today.
This story is so well written that I did not want to put it down, yet I did not want to finish it because then I would have to say goodbye to my new friends.
Nick, as usual. showed his understanding of people and his ability to get right into their minds. Congratulations Nick Alexander on your best one yet! And that's saying something as you've written so many wonderful books.
The Road to Zoe was definitely one of my favourites. Reading it was like bathing in warm chocolate. The problem is the moment I started it I was already dreading the ending, knowing that, as with all his books, it would feel like losing a best friend.
Nick makes the ordinary extraordinary and magical, describing his characters so effortlessly, really bringing them to life and making you, as the reader, care deeply.
Pure genius from beginning to end. I'm already counting the days until his next book. Literally.
Yet again Nick tackles sensitive issues in a totally masterful yet empathetic way and his realistic characters interact so perfectly within the beautifully described environments that they must surely be drawn from his own experiences.
His technique of weaving two separate but connected story lines works so well that it makes it very hard to put the book down.
I'd give it ten stars if I could.
Having started the book, I couldn't put it down. Can't wait for the next one!
I love the way that Nick Alexander can write from the perspective of both male and female characters. I also appreciate the way that the chapters are broken up which makes for easier reading. I live in Derbyshire and originate from Dumfries and Galloway (2 areas visited in the story) which made it even more interesting from my point of view.
All in all a first class book.
