Book Review — “The Heart’s Invisible Furies” by John Boyne

I absolutely loved this book. Follow Cyril Avery throughout his life from a young boy in the 1940’s in Ireland – to a young man in Amsterdam – to an adult in America – and back to Ireland as an old man in 2015. This is an epic story filled with sadness, loss and betrayal but all the while lifted up by love and laughter. You will laugh at/with Cyril, in his role as narrator, with his dry wit and sarcastic look at life — and you will surely cry with him as his life unfolds with the many small hurts and major tragedies that fill any life that’s worth celebrating. I’ve been told that the Audible version is wonderfully read as well, and as much as I’ve loved reading this — I’m thinking of giving that version a try too. This is a long book, but so worth it. By the end you will consider Cyril and old, dear friend and you will have experienced an amazing read. Highly recommended 🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩
