A must read! This is the story of Leo, whose parents tragically die in a random (??) car accident when he is only 25. When he finally comes back to their house to start clearing it out, he finds a CD-Rom in his parents’ mailbox that is personally addressed to him. And surprise – when he puts it into his laptop to read it, this CD-rom was created for him by his father! The more answers he gets, the more questions he has and little by little he unravels the story of his parents’ lives before he was born.
An excellent début novel – great vacation read!
