A great novel, both uplifting and heartbreaking,
This review is from: Astonishing Splashes Of Colour (Paperback)
I found Astonishing Splashes of Colour a compelling and if not heartbreaking account of love, loss and human identity.
The central character, Kitty is a deeply flawed individual who has endured personal tragedy on a series of levels and is struggling to cope and find purpose in her own life. Although her actions throughout the novel are unethical and deeply questionable, her state of despair is so consuming that as a reader you understand her motives rather than reject them.
This is a great novel about humanity and personal struggle, the characters are well formed and immediately identifiable and although the Kitty's narrative is sometimes unreliable this only adds to the characters fragile state of mind.
