Opinion

From Library Staff

Publisher's Weekly describes this stream-of-consciousness story as a "spiritual biography". Christopher is the sensitive son of a distant father and a difficult mother; he ponders the state of the world through fragmentary musings.

An exquisitely lyrical book that shows as much as it tells that life is sad and confusing but also beautiful. -Christopher

This is not a "light" read, it is an entirely compelling one. Hill's use of language carried me through and left me wanting more. There are very few books that I want to read again right away. Sea of Hooks is one of those rarities. Highly recommended.
