THE HEART

The Gulf Today - Panorama - - Books - By Maylis de Keran­gal by Deb­bie Ma­comber by Jan Karon by O’reilly/du­gard by Ron Ch­er­now by Mclaugh­lin/neal

Beau­ti­fully trans­lated from its orig­i­nal French, The Heart re­counts in ex­quis­ite de­tail the story of 19-year-old Si­mon Lim­bres. The young man who loves surf­ing and his girl­friend, Juli­ette, dies on an icy road after an in­vig­o­rat­ing, wave-kiss­ing sun­rise ocean ven­ture with two friends.

We hardly know him while he’s liv­ing. He spends most of the book be­tween life and death, wait­ing for his grief-wrenched par­ents to de­cide whether to al­low his strong and per­fect or­gans to save the lives of other peo­ple. We also meet on per­sonal and pro­fes­sional lev­els every­one con­nected with such de­ci­sions. I checked this book out from the li­brary and ended up buy­ing my own copy … and mak­ing sure I checked the “or­gan donor” box on my driver’s li­cense. 9. 10.
