The Best of Adam Sharp chronicles his life from early twenties to present day, twenty-odd years later. The story has Adam meeting Angelina in Australia (in their twenties) and life is never the same for either one. Many people can identify with Adam and the reflection of their “great love lost” thoughts. Many hold those thoughts in a tender place in their hearts that still groan from the remembered love and pain. So what happens when we get an “out of the blue”message from that lost love and all the old feelings begin to churn and sizzle in our minds? This story is almost cathartic for those of us who can identify with the main character, Adam Sharp. He fumbles and blusters with feelings while feeling the warmth of that lovely fantasy of what could have been! Oh, to do it all over again! I loved the first 3/4 of the book. The ending was a little odd for me so I lowered my rating to 4 stars. Three cheers to Graeme Simsion for nailing the raw emotion and characterization of Adam Sharp!
The Best of Adam Sharp will be available on May 2, 2017 by St. Martin’s Press. An egalley of this book was made available by the publisher in exchange for a honest review.
