Painting The Future by Louise Hay & Lynn Lauber

Jonathan Langley's life took a devastating turn when he lost his eyesight to a rare illness. Once a successful painter and printmaker, Jonathan now lives in complete darkness, rarely leaving his apartment and angry at the world. When he encounters his precocious 11-year-old neighbor, Lupe, the two form an unlikely friendship. Her cheerful presence shatters his hardened exterior, revealing a gentle man struck by tragedy. Lupe leads him to a fresh perspective by showing him the power of kindness, compassion, and love.

Release Date 6th February 2012

I found this story kind of strange, there didn't actually seem to be much of a story. There was stuff happening, but if you asked me right now to briefly describe the story, I really couldn't. Although, in all honesty, if you wanted it very brief? A man and a young girl become friends. That's pretty much it.

It was very strangely written. There were tiny little scenes with about 2 minutes worth of dialogue, so you were never really given any time to get into it before it switched again. Maybe this is why I find it difficult to pin down a story.

It was a decent enough read. If you're not too fussed on storyline or character development and just want a light read where you can switch off? Then I guess you might like this one.

Buy Painting the Future from Amazon.
