Brilliant and absorbing,
This review is from: Small Island (Paperback)
An absolutely brilliant read.
I don't quite know how to put it ...
The characters are all brilliantly individual, locked into their own ideals and values.
It made me ask myself questions: Would I have been friends with this person? Would I have done what this character did under the circumstances? What choices would I have made that were different? How can someone say that?!
Bascially, it got me involved! Days after and it still creeps into my thoughts - any book that does that I find fantastic! And the tone with which is written - direct and witty - makes it a very engaging read.
The subjects tackled were in a mix that I have not encountered before in fiction - so for me it was a unique, refreshing and absorbing read.
