📙 A Ship Made of Paper: A Novel by Scott Spencer — pdf free


I have read this book at least ten times and I still find something in it that I did not see before. This book is so well written that the images automatically popped in my head. Spencer has a way of making words flow directly from the page into the readers imagination. I thought Spencer laid the predicate for Iris and Daniel's relationship very well. He portrayed Iris and Daniel as two bored people with too much idle time on their hands. Both had insulated themselves from having to deal with the demands of the real world by attaching themselves to people who were more like parent figures than lovers. Iris and Daniel's lifestyles were solely provided by Hampton and Kate respectively. So rebellion against the stern, judging, and humorless Kate and Hampton seemed inevitable. Adultery is never pretty, people get hurt and lives are destroyed. And in this instance, the affair between Iris and Daniel does its amount of damage to the lives of the people close to them also. Writing a book about adultery is not endorsing it. The race issue seems really secondary to the love story, and Iris and Daniel are in love. Their chemistry and passion for one another can not be denied. And that is why I loved this book so much. After all is said and done, there is no doubt that these people love each other.
