Gold by Chris Cleave

Award winning author Chris Cleave’s writing skill extends far beyond the plot line in his books. This is his third book and, like his other two novels, it has received really good reviews. The story revolves around a group of elite cyclists training for gold. It is more about the decisions they make rather than who does what. Gold is about what drives people to succeed and the sacrifices that are made to achieve that success. It’s a great book, which I really enjoyed... Posted by Shaz

Chris Cleave on the importance of libraries in his life: 
"’s thanks to my mother that I started writing. She always made sure that my brother and I had lots of good books to read – we visited the library every week. I loved reading as a child, and always wanted to see if I could write stories too. Sorry, this isn’t an exciting or dramatic account of how I started writing – but that’s how it happened.
