Today the book I’m going to show off is :
Three Hours by Rosamund Lupton
The extraordinary new novel everyone is talking about from the Sunday Times best-selling author of Sister
Three hours is 180 minutes or 10,800 seconds.
It is a morning’s lessons, a dress rehearsal of Macbeth, a snowy trek through the woods.
It is an eternity waiting for news. Or a countdown to something terrible.
It is 180 minutes to discover who you will die for and what men will kill for.
In rural Somerset in the middle of a blizzard, the unthinkable happens: a school is under siege. Told from the point of view of the people at the heart of it, from the wounded headmaster in the library, unable to help his trapped pupils and staff, to teenage Hannah in love for the first time, to the parents gathering desperate for news, to the 16 year old Syrian refugee trying to rescue his little brother, to the police psychologist who must identify the gunmen, to the students taking refuge in the school theater, all experience the most intense hours of their lives, where evil and terror are met by courage, love and redemption.
I’ve enjoyed this author’s previous novels and have been looking forward to reading this for quite some time. I’ve only read a few pages of this book so far and I’m already gripped. I can tell it’s going to be an emotional read. I can’t wait to read more!
Have you read this novel yet? Do you plan on reading it?
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Have a great week!!
