The Best of Adam Sharp

Reprise. Many people find themselves reflective around age fifty, and wistful about what might have been had alternative paths been chosen. Graeme Simsion mines that topic in his novel titled, The Best of Adam Sharp. Protagonist Adam Sharp works as a computer consultant and has been in a long-term relationship with Claire, the sale of whose business might entail a move from the UK to the US. Having learned piano from his father, Adam has enjoyed music and piano playing for decades. While working in Australia in his youth, he was playing piano when he met and entered a passionate relationship with an actress, Angelina Brown. Out of the blue, Angelina makes contact, and Adam is drawn into all the possibilities of what might have been and what might still be. As in Simsion’s Rosie novels, the tone is sweet and the characters often endearing. Readers looking for light reading entertainment should consider this novel. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Best of Adam Sharp from amazon.com.
