Dark, descriptive, beautiful and subtle, 2 Oct 2013
Having thoroughly enjoyed McCarthy's first book, The Other Half of Me, I was excited to read The Outline of Love. Whilst The Outline of Love covers a very different subject matter (and painfully accurately so!), McCarthy's distinctive style is present - dark, descriptive, beautiful and subtle - and the characters, whilst not always likeable, are captivating. Like with the first book, I couldn't put this one down. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone who enjoys character-based, descriptive novels, and if you enjoy this book you should definitely read McCarthy's other work.
