Told with very raw emotion
von Lisa F. aus Berlin am 07.02.2017

Seriously, how does Melina Marchetta do that? Every time I read a book of hers, it becomes my new favorite. I have loved Saving Francesca, I fell in love with all of the characters and I was very curious and excited to read Tom's story. And hell, it did not disappoint at all.

I have loved Saving Francesca, I fell in love with all of the characters and I was very curious and excited to read Tom's story. And hell, it did not disappoint at all. To be honest: I love The Piper's Son even more than Saving Francesca. This book is full of raw and honest emotion. It can get very sad and gutting and it pains you while reading. But the pain is truly worth it. This book, this story is beautiful and is also told very beautifully. Like always, Marchetta's writing is great. Especially her dialogues, they can be funny and sassy as hell, I've laughed out loud several times. We met Tom in Saving Francesca; I liked him. While reading TPS I came to love him. He's a dick at times. He deliberately says hurtful things to people and it's not okay or nice. But you also experience the pain and him feeling lost, his many layers and his change. I got teary-eyed near the end. It was AWESOME! There is also the story of Tom's aunt Georgie told who is experiencing her first pregnancy and who has her own set of problems. At first, I was surprised to see that the book is also told from Georgie's view as it didn't seem to be right in a YA book but soon after it became clear that it absolutely fit. The relationship between Georgie and Sam is portrayed very realistically and honestly, it's truly great. This novel takes place five years after SF and it was so good to see what all the characters have been up to. I've really missed them, even though I've read SF just a month ago. What am I going to do now?! I need another book. One about Jimmy Hailler, I'm curious to see what he's been up to after reading TPS.
