In the Skin of a Lion by Michael Ondaatje
In the Skin of a Lion

Melsie, September 2, 2011

Beautifully written, it was a coming-of-age book for me, and I felt as though I were part of the book as I read it (over and over and over again!). It's a book that grabs you and drags you in, not letting go as you move along the paths of the various characters and all that they create and endure. Set between the 1920's and 1930's, it tells a sensual, moving, and amazingly haunting tale of men and women during the new age of construction and immigration in Toronto. The feel, and the imagery of the book is exceptional - Michael Ondaatje depicts both the amazing, and horrific situations and settings his characters encounter, and he sweeps the reader up along with them. I discovered this book in a class in college, and I have been in love with it since.
