In 1986, James collapses after a game of football at school. The cause is diagnosed as a tumour on the brain. Although treatment is successful, James will never be the footballer he was. The story of James continues on into his thirties as he falls in love, starts a family and becomes, in a modest way, a hero.
In From Ten Down to Three George Roberts examines fate as events happen in James's life that leave him questioning whether things are meant to be or are simply coincidence. A phone call made in error lead to him finding love. A bang on the head reveals the presence of the tumour. Saving a young woman's life leads to an unexpected encounter.
From Ten Down to Three is a delightful read full of wit and a dash of tragedy.
Just brilliant. I laughed, cried and felt completely immersed in James' life. written with a wonderful sprinkling of humour, this book is a must buy. I struggled to put it down.
I was kindly sent this book by the author George Roberts in exchange of an honest review.
This book is based on a true story and to me, helps to prove that everything really does happen for a reason!
It's brilliantly written and holds your attention from start to finish. It's thought provoking, humerous and at times upsetting.
I found it extremely difficult to put down.
The book asks a lot of questions about whether your life is predetermined or whether it's fate. However they're asked in a way that lets you as the reader decide the answers for yourself.
It's categorised as a book for young adults but I would recommend this book to mature adults as well. It's a great read and shows that there is light at the end of the tunnel!
