Guest Reviewer: Tatiana de Rosnay on "Still with Me"
This is a love story, but not your typical love story.
Jeremy, a teenager, is madly in love with Victoria. Alas, he suspects his love for her merely goes one way. In despair, he decides to put an end to his life on May 8, 2001.
Somehow, incredibly, Jeremy wakes up exactly one year later, snug in Victoria's tender arms. What happened? Jeremy has no memory of what occurred in the past 12 months. And now he's being confronted with his past—and his future—in a strange and haunting manner.
Thierry Cohen, with fluidity and poignancy, offers his readers an original viewpoint on life's fragilities, on the tough decisions we sometimes need to make, and on the never-ending mystery of how and why we inhabit this earth.
This novel, Cohen's first, took the publishing world by storm in 2007. Since then it has been published in 15 countries and has enthralled 200,000 readers worldwide. Young readers were the first to devour it, and then they got their parents to read it. People of all ages enjoy a book that artfully mingles spiritual elements and philosophy and suspense.
And now Still with Me comes, at last, to the USA. I'm sure—no, wait!—I'm convinced you will enjoy this powerful, emotional read, which will keep you up all night turning pages.
