Welcome to Sterling Road Reads, a new series where we feature book recommendations from our neighbours on Sterling Road! First up is Steve Himel from Henderson Brewing Co. Steve is a big reader and a great friend to us here at Anansi. He co-hosts our Beers and Books series and is always eager to share his thoughts on what he's reading now.
"This book is a masterpiece of storytelling, is a bucket of fun and a real page turner to boot."
I read a lot and have had the luxury of reading a number of Anansi books since they moved in beside us. I was going to write about another book altogether when I read Robert Hough’s man Who saved Henry Morgan. This book is a masterpiece of storytelling, is a bucket of fun and a real page turner to boot. I sat down on a Saturday morning this fall to start the book and before I knew it the weekend was over and so was the book. It’s a complete story with well developed characters. Hough’s use of language brings the environment to life and makes the book feel very cinematic. I can see myself picking this one up again, but not before I dive a bit deeper into his catalogue.
Thanks to Steve Himel for his recommendation! Check out our Beers and Books event on October 17th at Henderson Brewing Co, featuring Robert Hough!
