The debut novel from Australian film & TV pioneer Jim Shomos. Up Here is a unique love-triangle featuring two dynamic women and one ro-man-tic; it’s a feel-good exploration of a modern romantic dilemma that asks the age-old question: what if?
An eternal love-triangle, Up Here by Jim Shomos delves deep into what real love is with humorous results. It’s a beautiful, heartfelt and captivating romantic comedy.
Meet Peter, Jane and Christina, oh and mom of course! I loved this book. On one hand it’s airy and amusing; on the other it’s reflective and profound. It’s definitely movie worthy, and I kept imagining what it would look like on the big screen. The story starts when forty year old, jam-donut lover Peter, teeters on the verge of a new relationship with Jane. It’s true romance as the two acknowledge they’re in love. The trouble is, Christina has only been dead for five years and Peter is still mourning. Taking the decision that Christina would want them to be happy they take the plunge and get married. With guitars and a red convertible Mustang left to gather dust, Peter embarks on a new marriage full of love. They say lightning doesn’t strike twice, but sometimes it does, and Jane is taken by brain tumors. Peter is floored. He’s been lucky to have the love of two wonderful women, and unlucky enough to have lost them both. The crux of this tale hinges on my favorite line from the book: Who are you? Until you know this, you can’t connect with a soul mate. Heaven is meant to be wonderful, but when told he can only have one soul mate, who will Peter choose, Christina or Jane? There is another line very poignant to the story: Closure is the most elusive ghost, you can sometimes see it, but never grasp it. Life, death and love are all explored with skill and wit in this unique, imaginative romantic comedy.
Jim Shomos must have written this with a twinkle in his eyes. With wonderful characters, a splendid storyline and a fabulous light touch, Up Here is as moving, as it is funny. Up Here by Jim Shomos is a tender, thought-provoking, romantic comedy which comes highly recommended by Artisan Book Reviews
