This is not a simple story. The drama is complicated, the story is revealed subtly. The dimensions of Robert's past and present, the intricacies of his relationships, were revealed in an ever-deepening cascade of naked truths until I, the reader, felt so deeply entrenched in all that made up the layers of Robert's life that I simply had to finish reading. I rushed headlong and with utter abandon towards the ending, with an aching need to know that this beautiful person would be OK in the end. You'll have to read it yourself to find out. Read the first chapter and you'll be hooked. You too will need to know that Robert and Monique will be OK.
If you read one book this year, one book that you will think over and mull over and allow to seep slowly and deeply into the marrow of your soul, let this book be it. And then, when you've finished reading it, spend some time to find the "Robert" in your own life. There's a little bit of “Because” in all of us, I believe, and I owe Mr. Langedijk a debt of gratitude for the gift this book has brought to my own life.
The story tells of the life of a smart, dedicated and, at times, mightily confused man--Robert Sanchez. He inspires others to overcome their doubts and aspire to a happy life. But when a disaster hits him, Robert didn't know how to deal with it. That's when I started to get sick of his incessant self pity. A totally unexpected and very creative ending brought me back to liking the character and the book.
A novel where we believe it was written for us, and at the perfect time in our lives.
I believe this book needs to be in schools, through a story to teach our children lessons and values.
Through Roberts journey we realize we have all traveled through the same journeys, learning the lessons of life. The lessons become like "Oprah's light bulb moments". We learn we are all human, we all have pain,failures and triumph's. Not only are we transported to Robert and Monique's world, we are also transported back to our own. The AH HA moment...
The book captivated me, I couldn't put it down.
I learned a lot about myself, through Roberts life.
I wondered through the book how it would end, and it wasn't disappointing.
BRAVO JACK A LANGEDIJK
I can't wait for another book.
