The Ninth Life of Louis Drax

by Liz Jensen

Told partly by coma specialist Dr Pascal Dannachet as he fights an attraction to Louis's mother, Natalie, and partly by nine-year-old Louis himself from the depths of his coma, this really is a nail-biting suspense story with a very unexpected ending.


God only knows what Natalie was going through at that point. Maybe just surviving. I can picture how she might simply shut something off inside her, suffocating any urge to introspection. When I imagine her eyes - as I do, in those times when a tidal wave of memory washes through me, stripping my thoughts to the bone - I feel myself crumbling.
