This review is from: One Insular Tahiti (Kindle Edition)
I have done nothing but rave about this book to my friends since I finished it. Actually even before that, because I enjoyed it so much.
It is not a book that you can just skim read, you have to pay attention because it moves backwards and forwards in time and there are lots of characters that seem to be unrelated, but it ties up the threads of their lives slowly and thoroughly, until you realise that you are actually completely ensnared in their stories.
It is not a pretty book. The characters are not sweet fluffy bunny types who bake cupcakes for each other. They are real characters with real flaws, and one or two of them actually are not very nice! Even so, you care about how they feel and what happens to them.
I can't recommend this book highly enough.
