Share on:. It was unfortunate for Sandy Shorrt that she had black hair and was over six feet tall. People could never resist the temptation to comment. The other misfortune was having her classmate and neighbour, Jenny-May Butler, disappear without trace when she was ten years old.

The theme of the book looks good, but I couldn't digest the science behind the fact that there is a place called 'Here' where all of the things and people turn up when they are lost. That's something not very satisfactory as an answer to what happens to the lost. But the review was good and provided with what a reader would need to know.
Very well written Ms Ashna. I can't add more words to your infamous flow of writing than I already have, right now. God bless you. S: The cover's beautiful. The point was, there's a place, kind of a parallel world, where all the lost things go when they vanish. When people stumbled upon the place, they couldn't find a way out and eventually they came to know that it's a place for lost things.
Since they were very much alive, they made a life in that place, a proper civilization, so they could live 'normally'. Since it's fiction, I don't think any kind of science is needed. Anything can happen. Though I have to say I was disappointed with the ending. That was unsatisfactory. Usama; they never fail to actually thrill me! This is the third book I have read by Cecilia Ahern and I am in awe that such depth, creativity, and mature insight can come from someone so young.
It appears to me that several of the previous reviewers have missed much of the point of this book. I guess you're right The author's so young and I actually like the topics she picks up though I've read just two books by her , they're rare and it's something 'unique', something that hasn't been talked about earlier and I think that gives them an edge.
And I love the WAY she writes.. It's brilliant! I appreciate it :. I just love Cecelia Ahern's books. Her concepts are extra-ordinary with an underlying message!
I have read all her books! Oh that's really nice! I've just read two of her books and have liked them both. I agree on the extra-ordinariness of her books. I like the movie P. Cecelia Ahern is one of my favourite authors and ive read many of her books. They are so unique and each story has an amazing background and they are so different to each other which makes Ahern so special and her writing so special too.
I would really recommend reading 'The Marble Collector'. Thanks for the review!! Post a Comment. May 17, Cecelia Ahern Author: Cecelia Ahern.
Price: Rs. A Place Called Here is one unique book. Ever wondered where the lost things go? We all have experienced the agony of trying to find that missing sock from our favourite pair! What about the pen we kept here just a few minutes ago? What about all the people who mysteriously go missing without a trace! We can find out the misplaced things by searching for them, but missing things cannot be found. Sandy Shortt had been intrigued by the mystery of Jenny May Butler gone missing when both were ten.
She demanded a house-search whenever any one of her things went missing, which frustrated her parents who tried not to show it and made her see a counsellor when she turned fourteen. The counsellor-turned-friend came as someone who would listen to her questions and kept in touch with her till later years. Now Sandy is in her thirties and not being satisfied with her job with the Gardai, she runs her own missing persons agency. They had been talking over the phone and he was somehow sure that she would be able to find his brother.
That morning while jogging in another city, Sandy finds an unused path in the woods and takes it. After two days of running around in the forest, she finds out a group of people camping, now in their fifties. However, she recognizes them as a group who went missing on their school trip many many years ago! Many people who had gone missing, tired from trying to find a way out, have developed villages and did work to pass their time.
Many have married, had children, sent them to school and tried to live as normal a life as possible. Her watch first goes missing from Here, which became an issue of great unrest! Where would the things from Here go? Soon enough, when Sandy had a heart-warming meeting with Jenny May read the book to know how! And oh! Again, I won't spill the beans on that mystery.
My thoughts. The story is unlike any I have ever read. Wonderful and characteristic portrayal of the desperation one goes through in the quest to find out the missing things, multiplied by a hundred! The descriptions were fantastic, the basic story interesting and the author succeeded in getting readers hooked into the story.
Anyway, that was the way it was meant to be. Full stop. The plus point though, was the many quotable quotes the book had! My favourites are:. When we learn what it is our soul needs to learn, the path presents itself. Sometimes we see the way out but wander further and deeper despite ourselves; sometimes we prefer to be lost and wandering, sometimes we find our way out.
But regardless, always, we are found. Dreamer May 19, at AM. Ashna May 19, at AM. Espana May 26, at AM. Ashna May 26, at PM.
