The Snakes

“What role does money play in our lives? Family? Those two questions are at the heart of this amazing story by Sadie Jones. This book deserves to be read (or listened to) and examined and would be a great choice for a book club - there is a great deal here to be dissected and analyzed. Dan and Bea are newly married Londoners who are managing to do fine in the London economy. Dan has grown up in poverty, but Bea grew up in luxury. A key line in the story is when Dan realizes that to Bea "money is a cage," while to him, "money is freedom." That difference the two of them share is an underlying current throughout the story as they arrive at the abandoned hotel in Burgundy where Bea's brother Alex is living after rehab. When tragedy strikes the family Bea gets pulled back in to her family, even after she tried to divorce herself from them. As the story unfolds the reader learns that it's not just the nest of snakes in the hotel attic that are a presence - it's the snakes that are in human form that a person needs to be most careful around.”
