“If you read … you’ll like …”
When you’ve read a book, do you sometimes find yourself thinking “oh, that really reminds me of *insert name of another book*”?
Welcome to a new feature on Rosie Amber, in which my team and I will make reading suggestion for you, based on your favourites, be they classics, or newer best sellers. Our recommendations consider not just genre, but writing style, plot—and that ‘feel’ you can’t quite put your finger on!
First of all I’d like to tell you about a book I’ve read recently, which gave me the idea for this feature.
Feel Me Fall by James Morris.
A plane crash strands six students in the Amazon jungle, and the beliefs, friendship and trust between them is challenged. One character takes on a leadership and survival role, another is the voice of human reason and compassion. All six discover aspects of their personalities that they had not known existed until placed in this survival situation; it brought both the best and worst of their natures to the fore.
How do you think you might react if pushed to make decisions for the greater good? Would you base your decisions on survival of the fittest?
When I read Feel Me Fall, my immediate reaction was that it reminded me of Lord of the Flies, and I noticed that other readers had made similar comparisons. As for Animal Farm ~ the well-known phrase ‘all animals are equal but some are more equal than others’ flitted through my head all the time I was reading it! The Beach was itself compared with Lord of the Flies when it first came out.
