James is a young man with a terminal illness and a family that is falling apart because of it. Apart from trying to deal with his own mortality, James also has to cope with a father who is running away from reality by withdrawing from his son, a mother who is constantly fearful, and a sister who sees more than she should. When James meets Marcham, a mystical beast who takes him on a series of powerful spiritual journeys, James begins to understand the meaning of life, death, and family.
A magically eloquent story that will open hearts to the power of love and forgiveness.
The Point of Me is a poignant read that made me feel a host of different emotions; it is a hard-hitting read which at times can be very emotional. It may be hard-hitting, but at the same time, it is an essential read. The themes explored within this book makes this read a necessary read for anybody, and that is why I would implore all of you lovely readers to read it! It is a triumphant, exceptional book and you will not regret reading it.
The synopsis of The Point of Me is both enlightening and emotive. This book explores themes such as life, death, acceptance and love. It follows the protagonist of this novel, James; James is a young man, and sadly he has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. To make matters worse, his family are falling apart, this, of course, does not help his situation so already you feel for James and his sad situation. However, things start to look up soon as James meets a mystical beast named Marcham, Marcham is an enlightening being who takes James on a series of mystical, spiritual journeys that help James understand the meaning of family, death, and life. It makes for a poignant, moving read and I adored it so much.
The story of the Point of Me is extraordinary and very unique. I have not actually come across a story like this one before, so that is one of the many reasons why I was so engrossed in this story. This novel, in general, is incredibly engrossing, every moment I felt engaged in and what was more, was that I did not want this brilliant book to end! As I was nearing the end, I was getting sad because I did not want the book to finish but at the same time I wanted to know the ending, so I was in inner turmoil! This is all thanks to the excellent author of this novel, Rachel Davidson.
Davidson is a talented, exceptional writer who knows how to write brilliantly and how to write in such a way that makes the reader feel a host of different emotions. Her words were eloquent as well as beautifully descriptive, her descriptions floored me and instilled a real sense of wonder in me. In particular, the scenes were James meets the magical beast was especially poignant, her descriptions of this creature and the magical, spiritual aspects which were to happen were stunning, and for that, I am in real awe of Davidson. Her talent is brilliant, and I would not be surprised if this book is widely known one day, it certainly deserves to be! I can actually envision this book being read in high schools, or even younger. It does have a fantasy aspect which some adults may not like but the themes are poignant, and my children will definitely be reading this book when they are older enough. I may actually start reading some chapters to my oldest child. My point is, is that this book is an essential read that explores some hard-hitting, crucial themes in an important and easy to read way that is accessible to all ages.
To summarise my thoughts on this charming, brilliant, inspiring novel, I would say, if you are looking for an emotive read that will stay with you for a long time then this book is undoubtedly for you. This stunning piece of literature gets Five Stars from me!
