Read full description of the books Που κρυβόταν η αλήθεια:Some books grab you the moment you read the first page, but others, like this one, burn slowly but constantly until you don't even know how or where it grabbed you.
This isn't a book that races, it is a book that meanders and flows. At first, it might just seem about a simple family drama, a family splintering and breaking apart. But it is so much more then that. It's about humans, about people and human nature and their deep, confused but complex emotions.
I can't quite put my finger on what I liked about this book. The story was not so much driven by plot, but by the characters that inhabited the pages, and soon came to live like real people in my mind.
Evans makes you feel a range of emotions - and I think one of the key points I found within this novel really is - truth. Evans as an author does not just write a story, he somehow writes the truth. Something pure and beautiful.
I didn't think I would like it. Many times I thought I would not. Sometimes I wondered what I liked so much about this book, but something did seem to grab me from the first page, only I didn't realise it until later. I couldn't put it down and by about half way through there wasn't a chance of me putting it down.
To me, it wasn't a book you necessarily race through, hungry to get to the end - it is a book you live through.
Thanks to Jeane and Atishay for making me want to read Nicholas Evans. I'll be going onto read all his others now. :)

Nicholas Evans was born and grew up in Worcestershire, England. He studied law at Oxford University, graduating with first class honors, then worked as a journalist for three years on the Evening Chronicle in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. He then moved into televsion, producing films about US politics and the Middle-East for a weekly current affairs programme called Weekend World. It was during this time that he traveled a lot and got to know the United States.
In 1982 he started to produce arts documentaries - about famous writers, painters and film-makers, several of which won international awards (films about David Hockney, Francis Bacon, Patricia Highsmith). In 1983 he made a film about the great British director David Lean (Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago, etc). Lean became a friend and mentor and persuaded Evans to switch from fact to fiction.
For the next ten years, Evans wrote and produced a number of films for television and the cinema. In 1993 he met a blacksmith in the far South-West of England who told him about horse whisperers - people who have the gift of healing traumatized horses. Evans started work on what was to be his first novel.
Published in the fall of 1995, The Horse Whisperer has now sold about fifteen million copies across the world. It has been the number one bestseller in about 20 countries and has been translated into 36 languages. It was also made into a movie, starring, produced and directed by Robert Redford.
The Loop and The Smoke Jumper, Evans's second and third novels, were again an international bestsellers, topping the bestseller lists in many countries. The Smoke Jumper was published in a paperback edition on July 30, 2003. Evans lives in London and Devon, England.
