    1 thought on “Grace”

    1. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest (non-reciprocal) review.(Spoilers within)PROS:- I liked the two main characters, Luke and Anya, and they had some good lines. I particularly liked Anya's thought:"Maybe she could throw the couch at him, all she'd need would be a forklift."At the end I was genuinely interested in what would happen with Luke and Anya.- The plot was quite good and I was interested in what was going on with the reaper and the graces.- The world was constr [...]

    2. “Grace” is based on a simple, but brilliant, magical concept: people who foresee impending death can forestall it for 24 hours, granting themselves the opportunity to wrap up their wordly affairs and even to choose a more instantaneous, less painful way of dying. It’s a wonderful premise that has all sorts of spiritual and practical implications, and the author upped the ante by creating a hero who lacks this special ability and a villain who not only savagely murders others, but deprives [...]

    3. FANTASTIC!I’d like to start this review by saying that Grace by Marilia Bonelli is one of the most polished and well written books I’ve read in a long time. Ms. Bonelia is a master wordsmith with the ability to pull you into her world and make you feel as though you’re really there with the characters. Grace is a strange phenomenon that happens right before someone dies. It’s a grace period, another twenty-four hours to live, to say and do the things you never did before you depart.Luke, [...]

    4. Grace is the story of Luke, who as a young boy was confronted with the fact that he had no grace, a special gift that allowed someone who was dying or seriously injured to summon an ethereal power that would allow them twenty-four hours to live. Because of this, his mother thought he was cursed and brought him to a temple where he was enslaved and tortured for years.Years later, he was chosen by the elders in the temple as the most likely candidate to go back into the real world and hunt for a m [...]

    5. The first 100 pages showed good premise, the middle 100 were a bit like "hurry it along", and the last 100 pages were UNPUTDOWNABLE. I read it on buses, trains, while walking along the street, while cooking dinner. I was dying to find out what would happen in the end.Honestly, this was a novel and fascinating premise, and while the text overall could use a bit of editing (there were a few English fails, and some material could have afforded being cut) it was absolutely worth reading, and I'm gla [...]

    6. This is quite a long novel, but it easily kept my interest to the very end. I won't recap the plot, as it's been done in the other reviews here, but I'll just say that this is a book about a journey, and the journey is more important than the destination. If you'd like to take a trip to another culture, then this book is for you.
