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.

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
