Product Description

Review

'A gripping read ... Glaister is particularly brilliant at describing varieties of insanity that can afflict apparently normal woman' -- Sunday Telegraph

'A successful thriller ... the suspense level rises irresisibly, and you really want to turn the pages' -- Daily Telegraph

'Beguiling ... intimate ... Glaister is having a good time and knows exactly what she is up to' -- Observer

'Glaister has the uncomfortable knack of putting her finger on things we most fear, of exposing the darkness within' -- Independent on Sunday

'Sensuous and lyrical ... a stream of consciousness thriller, well worth reading twice' -- Literary Review

Format: Paperback
If you're a woman in your 30s (like me!), you like something a little out of the ordinary and you haven't tried Lesley Glaister, I highly recommend you give her a read.
This book is dark and eerie, a satisfying mixture of the everyday and the bizarre, a study of the subtle and not so subtle madnesses hidden behind the apparently "normal" facades of seemingly "ordinary" women. The plot unfolds slowly, but relentlessly, keeping the reader entranced as it moves along, offering glimpses of what's to come - it's both disturbing and compulsive.
If you enjoy this, I would also recommend Glaister's Honour Thy Father (although if you enjoy this, you'll most likely enjoy all her books).

Glaister has a formidable talent but like Ruth Rendell/Barbara Vine, whose style hers strongly resembles, she enjoys taking on some highly challenging topics. I didn't finish Nina Todd because I found the plot - no spoilers - too grim, and I had to fast forward on this one. The two protagonists are both complex and very disturbed persons, and there is no letting up. But her characterisation and plot building are exceptional and she writes like a dream. She really ought to be better known. That said, I wish she would lighten up a bit, because she can also do comedy really well.

You don't have to be any specific age to appreciate this and all of Glaister's work. Whether you're 20 or 120, if you want books written with intelligence, honesty, passion and depth, Glaister is always a best bet. I've read all of her books. The great thing about Glaister is that she doesn't use a "cookie cutter" to write. All of her books contain love, passion, humor, the dark side of life and people...and lots of mood - and all of of her plots, characters and stories are unique and "one-of-a-kind." Her characters are nothing short of genious - and she has a brilliant ability to weave her characters and story plots to a more than satisfying finish. I am a writer/editor and a voracious reader. I've read some great authors, but she remains my all time favorite. No writer, dead or alive, can begin to live up to her unique, masterful style. If you like GREAT writing, GREAT multi-dimensional characters, and captivating plot(s), I highly recommend reading ALL of her books, starting with Digging to Australia, Honour Thy Father, Trick or Treat, etc. Definitely the perfect author for those readers who like to sink their brains, heart and soul into books by an amazing talent.

I didn't like it. It was, undoubtedly very well-written,character insight superb and Inis believable, someone I could empathise with, but the rest? No. Not my sort of thing at all. Sorry. And I won't hesitate to read another Lesley Glaister.
