The Shock Of The Fall by Nathan Filer

The review for The Shock Of The Fall is brought to you by guest reviewer Samantha.

I'll tell you what happened because it will be a good way to introduce my brother. 

His name’s Simon. 

I think you’re going to like him. I really do. 

But in a couple of pages he’ll be dead. And he was never the same after that.

This book by Nathan Filer is a clever read. 

You are placed in the mind of Matthew who has mental health issues and you learn about how his life has changed since the tragic accident of his brother’s death. You immediately become gripped in this easy but clever read. 

Throughout the book you are left guessing what will happen next and as more and more is revealed about his brother’s death, Matt presents the troubles that he faces with his mental illness. 

This book shows really what it is like to live with this condition but at the same time how it can be dealt with and how people are still able to live an ordinary life.

I would really recommend this book if you are into stories which are similar to things that people face daily. It is a real eye opener to what life can be like for a lot of people. 

A great read and a quick but gripping book.
