4.0 out of 5 stars Love it or hate it, 20 Mar. 2009
This review is from: The Behaviour Of Moths (Hardcover)
My book group read this book, and it split the group into camps - one person hated it, two loved it (one even loved it so much she read the whole book in one day) a couple liked it pretty much, and the others didn't get very far into reading it. I was in the 'liked it pretty much' camp. It certainly generated lots of discussion. It has a perfect example of an unreliable narrator, and a lot of the discussion was about how much of Ginny's story we could believe, with opinions varying from pretty much none of it, to most of it. I thought it was a compelling read (and even the girl who hated it said she wanted to keep reading, and she hated it because she didn't like Ginny's character, and she didn't like all the detail about moth catching and killing). I do like books that tell you about stuff like the moth detail in this book, so that didn't put me off. The book felt pretty claustrophobic, and none of us (apart from the girl who hated it) saw the end coming, so most of us were suitably shocked.
