Today I am very excited to by closing the Blog Tour for James Ellis’ book The Wrong Story. The book was published by Unbound 17th March 2017.
About the Book
After falling from a car park roof, cartoonist Tom Hannah is left with
partial amnesia and the feeling that something important is missing from his
life. His journey to recovery is hampered by a growing inability to distinguish
between real and imaginary events. The characters from his cartoon strip
assume a grimy reality, while the lives of his family and friends appear ever
more unreal. The Wrong Story is about the borderlands between memory,
imagination and the real world. It is about the desire for self-determination
and the obligations on a responsible creator. But mostly it’s about a man who
falls off a roof and wants to know why – was it an accident, did he jump, or
was he pushed?
This is James’ debut novel but really doesn’t read like one.
Th story follows a cartoonist, Tom, as he tries to work out what happened to him after an accident, along with working out what is real and imaginary. It is a very unique story as it mixes reality with his cartoon characters in a brilliant way.
It is a very funny story, with bits of sadness in it to stop it from being to cheerful, and is a very easy book to read.
Even after I had finished the story I couldn’t stop thinking about it and how people’s reality can be affected by a bump. The story was really well written and kept me hooked throughout
