I saw this book reviewed in a magazine a few weeks ago. It sounded interesting so I bought it. What a great read! I couldn't put it down, the experiences of Paul and Louisas youth were so different, yet in their own way played the central part in bringing them together.
At first the way that the book jumps from one time to another could have been distracting, however it was very clever in the way that it was achieved, because you got the back ground as the story progressed.
Definitely recommend this book, I have now bought "The Poison Tree", and look forward to reading it! Would be a great holiday read.
