4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Discovery, 29 Sep 2007
This review is from: The Gift of Rain (Paperback)
Had a chance to hear the author speak at the book festival earlier this week in Ubud, in Bali! He made me - and quite a lot of the other visitors to the writers and readers' festival here this week - very keen to read this but the book only arrived in Ubud 2 days ago. I've since been reading it almost without stopping. It's an unbelievably dusturbing and stunning novel. From the very first page I was drawn into this world the author has so skilfully created. A wonderful, wonderful discovery!
