Love Overflowing (Book Thoughts: Home, Matt Dunn)

25704414I read “Home,” by Matt Dunn when I was on vacation a couple of weeks ago, and it was one of those thoughtful reads that made me keep on reading and reading and reading until I finished the book. I instantly fell in love with the narrator of the story Josh peters, who had to move back to his childhood home in Denton, an oceanside city an hour and a half train ride away from London. He then has to deals with ghosts of the past – his ex-girlfriend, his high school bully – while dealing with forthcoming ghosts, like his father’s terminal cancer. This book is heartbreaking, but all told with very dark dry humour. I start laughing then realize I have to cry while doing this. If you ever had to deal with losing a parent, you cannot be helped but be touched. This book w ll speak directly to your heart nonethless. It will make you realize what is important in life, and I bet you will surprise yourself.
