Lovereading view...

A small package, but one containing a forceful wallop of an impact. The short sharp chapters flit around in time; enabling you to catch up, tripping you so you fall behind again, teasing out the various stories that make up this tale. With fascinating characters and a dramatically colourful Brazil, this is a vividly punchy read, it almost feels at times as though you're watching a film with the scenes played out in front of you. The ending is not neat, certain threads are left deliberately and thought provokingly unexplored, which actually helps to make this a refreshingly satisfying and compelling little book.~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Happiness Is Easy by Edney Silvestre

Olavo Bettencourt is an important man, a man of spin. With Brazil adjusting to the new idea of democracy, his PR firm holds the balance of power in its hands. Which has also made Olavo very rich, if not very popular. Loathed by his trophy wife and mired in a web of political corruption that spreads from Sao Paolo to Switzerland, Israel and New York, Olavo is an obvious target for extortion. And what better leverage can there be but the kidnapping of his only son. Except that the child on his way home from school in Olavo's armour-plated car, deep into his colouring book as the gang closes in ...He's not Olavo's son.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
