I just finished reading a fantastic book HOW TO BE GOOD by Nick Hornby. A friend of mine recommended this book to me so I stopped by my local library to borrow a copy.
This book is set in England, a married couple is having problems, and the wife decides she wants a divorce.
As she admits this to her husband, she then changes her mind. Her husband says he will notgrant her this wish, despite the fact she is as unhappy as he is.
The husband encounters a healer who cures him of his back aches. He returns to see GOODNEWS, the healer and before they know it, GOODNEWS has cured him of all of his anger. The husband is magically transformed into a good person.
This does save their marriage, but as with all things there is a cost at hand. All of the effort to be a good person takes its own toll on the lives of the characters of this book.
I laughed a little, I marveled a little, I was entertained and I thought while reading this book.
I must say HOW TO BE GOOD is one excellent read. It is one of the best books I have come across in a while. I would be happy to recommend this book to others.
Nick Hornby, the author has also written a few other books such as HIGH FIDELITY and ABOUT A BOY.
