The Shadow Doctor

(1 review) Write a Review

'I'm sorry, are you saying that you think I should kill myself?'

He tucked his elbows in against his ribs, and raised and lowered his hands in parallel with each other, as though he was balancing an argument.

'Of the two options you mentioned, that's definitely the one I would go for. Living the rest of your life in misery, or taking one simple step to make it all go away - well, there's no contest, is there? That's what I think.'

We sat there without speaking for a few moments after that. i felt as if something had ended badly. Coldly. Just one comfortable platitude, surely? Doc broke the silence.

'There is one other alternative that you may not have considered.'

Back on track, I breathed in through my nose with relief, preparing myself to be kind but dismissive.

'And what is that?'

Pause.

'Scrabble.'

    Posted by Ken on 14th Jul 2017

    Didn't know what to expect when I bought this book as I didn't read the write up as buy most books by Adrian Plass.
    This is one of the best books he has written, it goes really deep into the gospel and gets you thinking while still making you laugh every now and then.
    Adrian has done it again, go on and treat yourself to this great book..
