“brings the theoretical complexities surrounding the idea of fate to life” – review of The Lost Men on The View from Here

The Lost Men CoverOn The View From Here website, Grace Read has written her review of David Colón’s novel The Lost Men.  In her witty introduction, she says she read the book while suffering from morning sickness so it may have affected her clarity of mind!  Nonetheless she says that she found it thought-provoking, placing concepts popular with philosophers into a family life setting and presenting “complex ideas about destiny in a digestible form”.

Her favourite elements of the book were the dialogue and she says she found the last part of the book “gripping”. Although she concludes by saying that The Lost Men would be “a perfect read for a philosophy student” she doesn’t suggest that it wouldn’t appeal to non-philosophers.
