Great sense of place and character,
This review is from: God's Own Country (Paperback)
Sam Marsdyke is a 19 year old farmer's son who lives an isolated life, and who becomes interested in the daughter of the middle class family that move into the next farm.
Sam is awkward and unattractive, painfully shy and deeply unlikeable. His character, as an unreliable narrator, is well drawn and wholly believable.
In fact this is a cracking book, well written, with an amazing sense of place and good tension. My one criticism is the ending, which slightly petered out. But it is a small quibble.
