Just finished “Touch” by Claire North… you know I love books. Books are a huge part of my life and I can not imagine living without reading. I mean really. Huge part of my life is reading or thinking about books, or writing or even creating weird stories in my own head, but this book…
Well if you know it, you know what it is about, if not, read the description and ask yourself: could you steal somebody’s life? Few days, a week, months, years, whole life? Imagine jumping into nice body, and letting that soul born into it, to sleep, and living… growing up, having family, kids, maybe a company… growing old, and then just getting bored and jumping into another body.
And living that body with a woken up soul who though it only had a nap… and in fact years passed by. From a teenager into an older, sick gentlemen. Sucks! Right? But what if you can live only this way?
Maybe just different form of living?
This book is really cool if you think more about it. Of course it could be better, deeper and much more interesting, but… in these days of reading only headlines instead of a whole article, I know this is the only option to make people read, still… It made me to think about my own body. It has wrinkles, is too fat and in fact could have better hair and genes at all. But… I somehow love it. My tiny hands and feet. My eyes and my smile. My ability to jump into imagination and just… be myself. Of course I am fat and ugly, but still, this is my body. That huge scarf reminds me of dying and being up here again…
Could I live in another body?
And touching… well, this is the biggest problem ever, I hate being touch! You should see me in a crowd – there is a reason why I live on an Island – I look so suspicious with my hands in sleeves and of course my head down, hoodie if I can, running like a thief or something worst even… and in fact being ONLY scared.
PS. Read this book, it is a great way to have cool conversations. Maybe nothing really new, but still not bad at all.
