The Smoke Jumper

by Nicholas Evans

I read this book over 5 years ago and I still think of it as the best book I have ever read. I got so absorbed that I read it in about 2 days.
It's a story of loyalty and guilt, honour, selfless love and the human cost of choices made. Brilliant.

This is the first time that I've contributed and and this is part of a reader development course that I'm doing for work. I searched the catagories desperate to find a book that I'd actually read that I could comment on so was relieved to find 'The Smoke Jumper' after trawling through pages of stuff that looked really interesting but which I've never read! Evans is accessible and gripping - loved 'The Loop' too. He can describe thoughts and feelings that are deep enough to amaze but also give you that 'ripping yarn' feeling.

A story of love and sacrifice with a happyending.

I couldn't agree more! It was a lovely, moving story that gripped me til the end.
