A melancholy but ultimately hopeful novel about 2 strangers who decide to free some sea turtles from the London zoo. Beautiful language and astute observations of life in a large city make this a book that you want to re-read again as soon as you have finished.

Turtle Diary is one of those rare books that exposes the sublime through the mundane. Blending wit with a profound melancholy in a delicate balance that leaves you wondering whether life has indeed "come to this." Despite being written decades ago, it feels contemporary. Sad and beautiful.
