LIFE IN A FISHBOWL By Len Vlahos

Posted by Ideja B. on March 18, 2018 at 9:50 AM
Life In A Fishbowl was one of the most unrealistic yet realistic novels *if that makes sense* I have ever read. This book broke the boundaries for what I thought was legal enough to occur! Naming the brain tumour 'Glio' was one genius idea, but selling a life on eBay to the highest bidder opened up another whole world of new possibilities. Despite the sombre nature, Vlahos still finds a way to incorporate some sort of feel-good humour, that allows the reader to connect with each character on a deeper level. The idea that even a nun could bid for a life over-stepped the idea of normality, for us as humans, but portrays a futuristic element; anything could happen. The description of every relevant detail in the book made it easy to picture what each person looked like, but also what they were going through. However, the unpredictability of the storyline was my favourite component. I found myself unable to guess what was going to happen next, and whatever I thought would happen, the quite opposite occurred! I also enjoyed the steady development of each of the characters, and how relatable they were, all in their own ways. I rate this book FOUR AND A HALF STARS (Check out the 'Four Star Books' Books page for the image, blurb and where to buy - click the image!)
