'The Cure,' entertains the ageless question 'why am I here, and what is my purpose?' A question many ask themselves, and very few are ever able to answer. The story is one of self discovery..of fleeing your everyday world for someplace new, in an attempt to put your own life into some sort of perspective. The plot is simple: Robert, the main character, is disappointed in what his university filled life has to offer him, so he leaves. Cutting all ties with those people and things who no longer bring any sort of fulfillment, he finds himself in a spa town in Germany. From here we follow Robert on his somewhat painful, often mysterious voyage towards self discovery. Anthony Marais has produced a brilliant novel here..its something anyone can relate to. The characters are entertaining and have witty dialogues, and Marais has intelligent views on life and human nature. I'm not sure what else to write here..I don't want to tell all about the story, as it really is one that everyone needs to read and appreciate for themselves. If you know anything about personal journeys, or just want to read about one, this is your book.
