November Bridge of Clay By Marcus Zusak

Here is a story told inside out and back to front.
Five Dunbar brothers are living – fighting, loving, grieving – in the perfect chaos of a house without grown-ups. Today, the father who left them has just walked right back in. He has a surprising request: Who will build a bridge with him?

Book Review By
Louw Potgieter Senior Book Buyer

Since the hugely successful international hit The Book Thief it’s been a long wait for Markus Zusak fans – thirteen years to be exact. Worth the wait it has certainly been, as Bridge of Clay is an exquisite and unforgettable experience that will stay with you for years to come. It’s the kind of book you want to own in it’s beautiful hardcover packaging rather than in e-format, for you will want to have it on your bookshelf so you can return to it over and over again. You will want to reread many of the heart-wrenching passages and laugh out loud lines, and you will want to revisit the somewhat scarred but so very resilient and endearing Dunbar boys and the eccentric cast of supporting characters, including a mule, a dog, a fish and an overweight cat. You will be reminded of the power of a great story; the vulnerability yet tenacity of the human spirit.
