Savvy Book – The Marble Collector

Everyone needs an ally during the dark times. And Fergus, the central character in Cecilia Ahern’s ‘The Marble Collector’, has a whole collection of them.

Shut up in a prison on a par with  Roald Dahl’s Chokey cupboard, by a malevolent schoolteacher, the young Fergus escapes reality by turning what might otherwise have been a passing interest, or sideline, into a lifelong passion.

This does, however, lead to some confusion in his adult life when his marbles become tainted by jealousy, suspicion and falsities, leading to their ostracisation from Fergus’ friends and family.

Whether your passion be for marbles, stamps, Pokemon cards, or books, books and more books, you will be able to relate to the Cecilia Ahern‘s Fergus.

“No, Hubby. No! YOU MAY NOT THROW MY BOOKS INTO A SKIP, OR INTO THE WOOD BURNER!

HANDS OFF!”

But, if like my collectables, yours are a little too large and a lot too many to hide – it might be worth switching!

Game of marbles, anybody?
