Things that Fall from the Sky
Things that Fall from the Sky | Selja Ahava
4 posts | 3 read | 1 to read
One quirk of fate can send life spiralling in the most unexpected direction... Things that Fall from the Sky is a stunning narrative that explores the unexpected and inexplicable nature of reality. Three lives are changed forever by a series of random events: a young girl loses her mother when a block of ice falls from the sky; a woman wins the jackpot twice; and a man is struck by lightning four times. Selja Ahava weaves together these unique stories in a charming, one-of-a-kind tale about just how far people will go to force life into a logical pattern they can make sense of. Things that Fall from the Sky is a story of everyday life. But it is also a meditation on the passing of time, the endurance of love and the pain of loss. This prize-winning novel by one of Finlands best-loved writers is now touching readers hearts all over the world, painting an unforgettable picture of the unforeseen twists and turns that can define a lifetime.

Physically I'm here, mentally I'm far, far away.🤪😴
It's time to go sleep and preparing for another adventure. Tomorrow I'm going to the swimming pool with my girls (my baby and my sister).
What's your plan for tomorrow?
Wish you a sweet dreams.😚

I got this book from our publisher to write honest review. I have so mixed feelings about it. It's good book. Characters thinks about stuff that happend to them. Is this coincidence or fate?
3.5 stars

It's supposed to be mild, but...
