One thought on “Finding Sagrado

  1. Sami

    Finding Sagrado is a smart, honest, thoughtful story about a likable young man charting his own path toward self realization Carrier is a fine writer, but even importantly in this book is how the story causes the reader to re visit his or her own adolescence Certainly the circumstances don t match up, but the emotions and dreams of the young character resonate close to home ambition, loneliness, trepidation, hope I find myself still wondering about Shane as to what may have happened to him afte [...]

    I wasn t at all sure if I was going to like finding sagrado when I first cracked the cover on the book I honestly thought that it was going to be one of those nostalgic trips down memory lane View the world through rose colored glasses sort of books and I would not be able to establish a personal connection with the characters or have a reference point for the timeframe of their world I was soon proven very wrong within the first 20 pages I was hooked Mr Carrier, positively sucked me into his un [...]
