Book Review: Spilling Clarence by Anne Ursu
Beautifully rendered with a light comic touch.
One word to describe this book: MAGICAL.
This is practically one of the most unbelievable yet truthfully acclaimed books I’ve read for a long time now. This is just a book I found on a thrift store, sold to me for 20PHP and never expected that this book is really good once you came to understand all the details that come up together to formulate a much beautiful connection between the characters.
There was this small town named Clarence that’s living peacefully ever since and almost all of the people are living normal lives….
What if one day you found out that something catastrophic would happen and it affect all of you, trapping you in an absurd world you never even knew would happen?
Just like losing your memories.
This book is mainly about a factory in a small town that has occurred and unfamiliar event in the nuclear reactor center, causing a major spill of chemicals that the result is airborne. The story follows different characters whose lives were affected, trying to find a way to get out of the delusions and unexpected experiences of losing a part of their memories that they once had.
A beautiful story of faith, love , compassion and hope.
