In Matt Haig's two previous novels for adults, THE DEAD FATHERS CLUB and THE LABRADOR PACT, the author . Matt Haig's previous novels have hardly been light, sunny affairs, but in THE POSSESSION OF MR. CAVE, his writing turns darker than ever.
In Matt Haig's two previous novels for adults, THE DEAD FATHERS CLUB and THE LABRADOR PACT, the author skillfully utilized naïve narrators. In both cases, he successfully allowed the reader to use his or her more sophisticated knowledge to fill in the gaps in understanding left by those telling the stories -- in one case a child, in the other a dog. In THE POSSESSION OF MR. CAVE, his third book for adults, Haig does much the same thing. In this case, however, the narrator is far from innocent.
The Possession of Mr Cave: First Few Pages. Aged 24, Matt Haig’s world caved in. He could see no way to go on living. This is the true story of how he came through crisis, triumphed over an illness that almost destroyed him and learned to live again. A moving, funny and joyous exploration of how to live better, love better and feel more alive, Reasons to Stay Alive is more than a memoir. It is a book about making the most of your time on earth. I wrote this book because the oldest cliches remain the truest. The bottom of the valley never provides the clearest view.
Matt Haig's first novel for young readers, Shadow Forest, won the Blue Peter Book of the Year Award and the Gold Smarties Award. He is also the author of various adult novels, including the bestsellers The Last Family in England, The Radleys and The Humans.

Matt Haig has a great ability to immediately put a welcome (and sometimes unwelcome) image in your mind of what’s . Disturbing yet thought-provoking. This book steps into the obsessive, paranoid and unstable world of Mr Cave.
Matt Haig has a great ability to immediately put a welcome (and sometimes unwelcome) image in your mind of what’s going on here through his words, and that’s what made this book stand out for me. It’s one of my favourites because it really turned a cog in my imagination here. People can change into something unrecognisable from their former selves.
In all honesty I was sad to see it go, as it was by far the oldest item we had on sale. Is this an authentic Franz Bergman?' she asked me. 'Yes,' I told her, through her nods. An amazing period for the decorative arts in Austria. The detail is quite exceptional. Her pretty mouth twitched in a manner that reminded me of an inquisitive mouse. She raised the small bronze beauty to eye level. I have a Barrias from around the same period,' she said.
244pp, Jonathan Cape, £1. 9. To give away any more of the plot would be wrong. Ours seems to have become an over-protective culture, where every stranger glimpsed in a park is transformed by suspicion into a lurking child-molester, and everything our children eat, drink and see on the internet is a potential hazard to mind, body or soul. The Possession of Mr Cave is a compelling book; a page-turner in the best sense of the word, in that most of the suspense comes from character.
