Even though I don’t work for in a library, my office is based in one so I get to walk past all the new arrivals every day and this book The Sunlight Pilgrims was one of them. I had heard of this book and it has been on my Goodreads list for a while now, so I snatched it up pretty quickly. I got through TSP in a week, and that was only because it was a pretty big book and didn’t want to carry it home so I read it on my lunch breaks and whenever I could.
For me TSP wasn’t JUST about the end of the world, for me it was about friendships, relationships, love and general life. The way Jenni Fagan constantly made me feel cold throughout the whole book really sold it for me. I have a perfect image in my head of what the caravan park looks like, and the scene of the iceberg as its approaching.
Stella is a very relatable character and the way she was perceived was brilliant, and I would definitely recommend this book to someone who is going through the same transition.
