This review is from: The Return (Paperback)
After reading The Island, I had hoped The Return would be of a similar quality but I was sadly disappointed.
Pedestrian storytelling, annoying characters, way too much description of every day events (which is a a sign of very poor writing technique) and a downright unbelievable and extremely contrived ending make this one you should avoid. I skim read from about half-way through and was desperate to finish and get onto something better.
If you want to read something moving and well written on the Spanish Civil War, go for Guernica by Dave Boling or, failing that, buy a history book.
