Here’s my personal rendition of the cover of White Apples written by Jonathan Carroll.
This has got to be one of the most reassuring books I’ve ever read. It’s quirky, romantic without being too cheesy, enigmatic and also horrifying in some parts. I didn’t want it to end.
When I buy a book, even if it’s on sale, I rarely fold the corners because I often think of having to part with it in the future, of selling my precious books when I am starving in the future, or of giving them to special people who’d love them as much as I did. But I couldn’t resist with this book. The description of God and how our lives fit in the universal puzzle of life mystified and intrigued me. I read Glass Soup before I read this, and I have to say this book exceeded my expectations. I’m planning on rereading Glass Soup so I can further fall in love with Isabelle and get to know Vincent more.
This book made me: cherish animals, want to visit the zoo, cherish the idea of reincarnation, swoon, stalk Jonathan Carroll’s blog
