Review : CLICK by Multiple Authors

Click is written by ten authors : Linda Sue Park, David Almond, Eoin Colfer, Ruth Ozeki, Nick Hornby, Tim Wynne-Jones, Gregory Maguire, Deborah Ellis, Margo Lanagan and Roddy Doyle. Ten award-winning authors collaborate to write a novel about Maggie Henschler and her dead grandpa. Maggie's grandpa, George "Gee" Keane was a world known photojournalist. He took picture of war, diseases and nature. when he died, he left a wooden box with seven compartments, each compartment filled with seashells from the seven continents. Maggie's job is to throw the seashells back to where they belong. meanwhile, Jason, Maggie's older brother found out that he was adopted by the family. He's going to find his genetic father by selling the signed photographs Gee left him. Read on and expect to be moved by the tale of a man who changed people' s lives with a camera.

I love the story. It is the kind that hooked you from the first page, the kind that will make you cry. I simply adored the idea of a man going through all the continents, the places he went and the stories he'd listened to. But all the while he was thinking of his little grand children back home. The authors transported me to many places, hearing tales of a child born from the sea, a man in the war, a boy who met Muhammad Ali, a jailmate in Russia and many more. The stories reminded you to look, to see the world around you. To be amazed.

My cover is different, white base with colorful stripes with the names of authors printed on it. This cover is a little boring. Simple. Both covers doesn't tell much of the story though.

Ratings : 4 stars
