5.0 out of 5 stars A small place in a small world, 3 Nov 2006
This review is from: Small Island (Paperback)
Small Island is very cleverly written and takes the reader carefully through the lives of its characters in immediate post war England and how they got there. Andrea Levy pulls no punches when she deals with racism but handles the issue very intelligently. Each character is built so that they become very real sadly though there is not enough about Bernard's early life to complete the picture. This book would a useful addition to any 'A' English Literature reading list. A book that can be read at different levels but as good as any history book for a picture of post war England and much more interesting.
