About The Book:
Isaac stands alone on a bridge and screams. Something screams back. And that, like everything which follows, is unforgettable. This is a book about a lot of things - grief, hope, friendship, love. It's also about what you'd do if you stumbled into the woods at dawn, found something extraordinary there, and decided to take it home. It's a tale that might seem familiar. But how it speaks to you will depend on how you've lived until now. Sometimes, to get out of the woods, you have to go into them. Isaac and the Egg is one of the most hopeful, honest and wildly imaginative novels you will ever read.
This book was everything. It is sort of a feel-good book, but not completely, it is also a very sad book but has many funny moments. It is definitely literary fiction but the plot is divine. This is undeniably a character-driven novel and Egg and Isaac are characters you'll fall in love with, I guarantee it.
The story kept me captivated the entire time and it seamlessly blended the completely heartbreaking story of losing someone you love with the humour of trying to live with and teach an "Egg". Don't be fooled though, the Egg teaches Isaac just as much as Isaac teaches the Egg.
This book made me cry and filled me with joy in equal measure. Even though it deals with grief it is also about hope, friends, family, and the little things in life that make us happy and matter most. I found it completely filled with love.
This was a truly unique take on an old premise and an extraordinary one at that, what a marvelous debut.
