Review from
The title of the book, “The Spirit of Want” is truly justified. Throughout the book, you might hate Lucy for certain parts but in the end, you will always come back to feeling sorry for her as you understand her pain. One of the few sentences in this book that has gravely touched me is when Elizabeth (Lucy’s sister) is talking to Luke about Lucy having abandoned her family. She says, “and what might have happened if Lucy could have known she had real family, a sister, a father.” “That she was loved enough to know how to love others.” It shows us how important love is in a person’s life, and how it shapes our lives. And how Lucy had never known love, in order to be able to give it to someone else. And so, she undestood only the language of lust,needs and wants.
By the time you reach the end of this story, your heart might have skipped beats several times! But that is what I look for in a book, its ability to hook me to it and have me reading it till 3 am, eager to finish it and yet hold onto it at the same time.
