Blue Mondays (15): Prospero’s Children by Jan Siegel

Blue Mondays

Monday mornings are the toughest mornings. Knowing the weekend is over and you’ll have to go to school or work again… But here is my solution: Blue Mondays!  Every Monday I will pick an awesome book, which I hope will make the week almost bearable for you. Cause reading it will make you forget about everything else! And before you know it, weekend has started once again ^^

Prospero's Children by Jan Siegel

Fern and Will, the children of a feckless art dealer, find themselves sharing the remote farmhouse he has inherited with his current, and sinister, mistress. Something snuffles outside; a stone in the garden, which bears an odd resemblance to a passing tramp, moves in the night; a wolfish dog befriends them. Dreams and sleepwalking and the most remarkable videotape ever watched provide 16-year-old Fern with evidence that the world is not the controllable, rational place she thought it was–and that her own future is to be altogether more remarkable, and full of pain and wisdom, than she has expected.

This book has been around for some time now, and it’s still one of my most favorite books. It has everything I wanted: magic, romance, unicorns, a good story. At the same time it’s also one of the saddest books I’ve read. I really used a lot of tissues with this one. And the story wouldn’t let me go. Even now, I get tears in my eyes when thinking about it… (but this could also be because of my cold 😉 ). Anyways, this story is ideal to forget its Monday today!
