Tin Man by Sarah Winman

Into the Wild

Read Tin Man Online Free - The unforgettable and emotionally devastating new novel from Sarah Winman, author of the international bestseller WHEN GOD WAS A RABBIT and the Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller A YEAR OF MARVELLOUS WAYS.

This is almost a love story.

Ellis and Michael are twelve when they first become friends, and for a long time it is just the two of them, cycling the streets of Oxford, teaching themselves how to swim, discovering poetry, and dodging the fists of overbearing fathers. And then one day this closest of friendships grows into something more.

But then we fast forward a decade or so, to find that Ellis is married to Annie, and Michael is nowhere in sight. Which leads to the question, what happened in the years between?

This is almost a love story. But it's not as simple as that.

I didn't think a perfect book could exist, I was wrong. As Michael says within 'It was beautiful and, occasionally, it hurt.' Get ready for me to go on and on and on about Sarah Winman's incredible third novel Tin Man, it's stunning. One of the most beautiful portraits of love, friendship and und...

What a gentle, moving and beautiful story of life, love and friendship. And sunflowers, don't forget those. 🌻 The characters are brilliantly explored Ellis and Michael will get into your heart. I knew it was going to be a one sitting read for me and I was prepared to have my heart wrung out. Not m...

Ellis lives a solitary life, but it is a life peppered with memories of the past. I’ve been staring at a blank screen and wondering what I can say about Sarah Winman’s Tin Man that will be adequate enough to convey what a beautiful read it is. Sarah Winman has a unique style. Direct speech is prese...

I tend to avoid books that deal with love, loss, romance, grief and so on. I don't know why, I just don't like to read them. Lately though, I have been reading books that challenge my perceived notion of the genres I avoid, and Tin Man has been on my radar for a while now. I was lucky enough to g...

2.5 stars This book was such a letdown! Did I read a totally different book? Tin Man is so short that summarizing the plot would be a spoiler in itself, so all I can say is that this a convoluted novel about an almost-love story. The writing style was beautiful & fitting, giving an undertone of...

An achingly beautiful book about three people who love each other. It's about first love and small kindnesses. It's about how destructive toxic masculinity can be. And it's about love is love is love is love is love. Winman does a masterful job managing the elusive structure and slips of time.

"What's a complement? Ellis asked. Complementing colours are ones that make the others stand out. Like blue and orange, said his mother. Like me and Ellis, said Michael. Yes, she smiled. Like you two." Tin Man is about complements. Sarah Winman's characters complement each other completely and wh...

Darn, this didn't really work for me. The first half was quite subtle and powerful, as was the beginning of the second half, in diary form. But then that diarist-character started banging me over the head with his self-analysis, and there were a lot of jarring, bossy sentences about what everythi...

This novel is breathtaking. It tells the lives of two men that meet and fall in and out of love - one of them, Ellis, eventually marrying a woman while the other, Michael, lives a much different life. Through their relationship, Winman explores the line between friendship, love, and family exquis...

Review: You only have to look on Goodreads for 30 seconds to see the abundance of 5 star reviews for this book. I read Sarah Winman’s, ‘When God Was a Rabbit’ a couple f years ago and it quickly become one of my favourite ever books. Sarah has a beautiful way with words and a real unique storytel...
