A gripping tale by one of our greatest novelists
on 6 May 2000
I'd never read any CC before I read the Mallen Trilogy - books I came across by chance whilst stranded in a rainy backpackers on the other side of the world. They kept me enthralled for days on end, until I'd read the last word and the rain had finally stopped. Totally gripping, and full of both the wit and realism she is famed for. Since experiencing the Mallens, I've gone back to CC many times for a really good, old-fashioned read, but this trilogy will always be my favourite. If you're a lover of sagas, yarns and generally good plots and tales, give it a go. It will reward you.
