A truly stunning story, 16 Nov 2013
It's hard to summarise this book. It's fantastic. I've never read a story before that has so much going on. There's about five major plotlines all running at the same time; you'll need your wits about you to follow it all. And so many emotions and moods within one story takes some skilful writing. Yes it's macabre, dark, atmospheric, grim, scary and gothic. But it's also hilarious in places with just the right amount of dry humour and comedy, and a wonderful relationship between the three main female characters that shows love and anger in equal measures. So much crammed into just one debut novel makes this a gripping and fascinating read. I will be recommending to my friends, and I urge anyone reading this review to take a chance and you won't be disappointed.
