A heartfelt novel about the connections that bring people together.
Soho 1984: Two people meet and their worlds are changed forever. An unexpected meeting – a look that means their lives will never be the same again.
In There Is Always More To Say Lynda Spiro chronicles the lives of the couple through friendships, marriage, fleeting moments and snatched time. It is a passionate account about a connection between two people that never dies even when tested by distance and when life throws the unexpected at their feet.
“The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances. If there is any reaction both are transformed.” C G Jung
There Is Always More To Say is not my typical sort of read. It is a fairly quick read with short chapters and it only being 159 pages long in the paperback version.
At the beginning and end of each chapter there are short quotes from a whole array of iconic people which breeds a little positivity through out the book and I very much enjoyed reading ones that I know very well, as well as discovering plenty of new ones.
The story is told in first person by a fifty two year old lady who we don’t know the name of. It felt like someone writing into their diary as each chapter is a different time scale or date. It also felt like she could be writing a letter as each chapter is pretty much aimed at the man she first met twenty years ago who she has since carried a torch for.
This whole novel is very much about meeting your first love and how no matter how many years have gone by, you never truly forget them. I’m sure we all will be able to relate to parts of this novel as well as the woman whose story is being told. In parts it certainly proved to be quite thought provoking.
There Is always More To Say like I said isn’t my usual read. Whilst I wouldn’t go as far as saying I loved it, it is still a good read and which I felt that I got something out of it that I can take away with me if that makes sense.
My thanks to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Goodreads rating 3/5 stars.
