ESL Book Overview: Just Like a Motion picture

Just Like a Film is an absorbing novel for adults reading through at a commencing amount of English.

Sue Leather-based, writer of this e book and many some others, spoke at a conference I attended. She stated she experienced a inclination to create murder mysteries at times she tried out to create a romance, but a corpse always discovered its way into the story. That inclination is plainly at function right here.

I am a handyman, like I told you. I necessarily mean, I was a handyman. I labored on houses and workplace buildings in Toronto. Challenging operate and not a large amount of money. Well, one particular working day I did some function in Rosedale, the rich space of Toronto. Truly loaded. I was at a property. Carrie’s household. I satisfied her there . . .

Brad Black, the narrator, is self-centered and greedy — but he appreciates how to make ladies belief him. When he meets rich, lonely Carrie, he decides to marry her for her income. He figures he’ll go again to his real love, Gina, and reside fortunately at any time immediately after, once he arranges for Carrie to have an “accident”.

Brad’s seen too numerous motion pictures. He learns the tricky way that life is just not like a single. Though he’s not a likeable character, and absolutely not a hero, his tale is compelling suitable up to the close.

This is quite effortless looking at, but the themes of exploitation and murder make it a reserve for adults.
