Mandafofanda Reads Lots

The world isn't just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no?

And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no?
Doesn't that make life a story?

- Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Full Circle - Michael Thomas Ford I read this because I was curious about Ford's other work after being introduced to him through his young adult novel, [b:Suicide Notes|3097601|Suicide Notes|Michael Thomas Ford|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1342833053s/3097601.jpg|3128756]. It says a lot about an author that, though I don't think I (female, early 20's) am in the bracket that would most relate to this book, I was still interested and compelled enough to finish it and see where the characters ended up. Being born in the late 80's, I don't know much about the decades that this book described, so I was fascinated by the descriptions of historical events from an everyman's perspective.
