THE TILT – Chris Hammer

Wow. @thehammernow is a master storyteller (and would probably be quite good at weaving) THE TILT is a generational tale, over three beautifully developed timelines, and a rich and rewarding read. Loved every minute of it. Great to hear Dorje Swallow narrate it (he has narrated all of Chris books) and @dorjporj does his usual superb job. No spoilers but Highly recommend. Also glad I am finally getting to catch up on some TBR – Go Summer!
