The Uncommon life of Alfred Warner in Six Days by Juliet Conlin


Review 3.5 stars out of 5

Update finished reading this!


What an interesting idea for a book.  Quite a unique angle to consider an elderly man who has been hearing benevolent voices the whole of his life.  What surprised me, until I read the authors Afterword, is that I never questioned whether the voices were real.  I automatically assumed they were supernatural as the book draws you in to Alfred’s inner world.  Alfred (the protagonist) is a really lovely character btw!  Very easy to warm to.

In all this book should have worked, and have been worthy of 4 stars, but I found myself sometimes trudging laboriously through parts of it, perhaps it was the sheer incredibility of the events that happened to Alfred, maybe it was just a tad too long; whatever it was it did not hit the wow factor for me.

That said do not let it put you off as a lot of reviewers loved this book.


Previous:  Had this one sitting on the shelf for ages.  Glad I set up a reading challenge of 10 books between June and November 2018.  This gives me the motivation to actually read some of the books I have purchased.  I am enjoying the challenge, I forgot how much I love reading for leisure.  Currently on number 8/10…so according to Goodreads on track lol.  Happy reading to you all.
