5.0 out of 5 stars A remarkable novel, 11 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Original Bliss (Paperback)
In 'Original Bliss', A.L. Kennedy skilfully tells the story of how a loving relationship develops, and ultimately saves, two damaged people: an abused housewife who has lost touch with her spirituality, and an expert in cybernetics addicted to violent pornography. Hardly the most attractive of topics, one might think! However, don't let the subject matter deter you from experiencing this truly remarkable novel.
The story is superbly told, generating both understanding and sympathy for the central characters. It is beautifully conveyed, absorbing, and powerful, leaving no doubt that Ms Kennedy has a wonderful gift for prose. If you appreciate talent, you will appreciate 'Original Bliss'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short stories, 25 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Original Bliss (Paperback)
This isn't a review proper, because I've only read the first three stories (well written with clean prose, but a bit unsatisfying when I was hoping for a novel), but I thought someone should point on somewhere on this page, that 'Original Bliss' is a collection of short stories, with a long novella (Original Bliss) at the end.
