This review is from: The End of the Wasp Season (Hardcover)
mina is a very talented writer , wonderful with characters and i thought at the beginning this book was going to be perfect and break the sterotyped mould again . But it just falls apart; she gives thanks at the beginning to friends "for sorting out the second half of this book which was , ahem , a bit messy". It is still a mess and the chief reason , i think , is her failure with the Catholic public school boy whose father has hanged himself . i am not giving anything away : the problem is there is nothing to give away . you might enjoy it more if you don't assume it is a crime story

I agree with fred. Unfortunately I bought this book off the shelf it sounded quite good. I made a big mistake, I have struggled to get through a couple of chapters - the characters didn't come alive for me. Won't be buying another.
