"A VERY GOOD BUY…"
Alan Gibbons novel Hate is inspired by a true story. Hate is a fiction story. The attack on the character Rosie, is based on a real attack. Alan Gibbons came to write this story of Hate after meeting Sylvia Lancaster at a teachers conference. Sylvia told the audience how her daughter, Sophie and her partner Rob both died after a savage attack in Stubbylee Park, Bacup, Lancashire 24th August 2007.Hate is a heartbreaking good story. Eve's sister, died after an unprovoked attack on her. With a dark gripping twist Anthony is the new boy who has moved from his previous home town to start a new life with his mum near Manchester road where Eve and her best friend live. A storm is brewing as Anthony is the new boy in Eves class. But Anthony is no stranger to Eve she knows he was there the night her sister Rosie was attacked. There is no escape for Anthony from Eve, she has suffered heartbreak and her family have had a lot to cope with their pain and anger that their daughter Rosie was taken away from them through a savage attack. Eve has a crazy plan in store for Anthony. Although attacks are rare it does send chills down you when you hear about People of all ages and from all walks of life who are viciously attacked. You think times have changed, but some people are still so full of hate. The novel Hate is a solid page turner. I recommend Hate by Alan Gibbons to all readers and book groups as there are some questions at the back of the book that can be discussed. The book Hate is a story about love, loss, hate and we see a family sharing their experience of loss. There is forgiveness and standing up against prejudice and believing in who we are. A great novel not to be missed.
