A refreshingly un-patronising read,
This review is from: We Need To Talk About Kevin (Five Star Paperback) (Paperback)
Lent and recommended by a friend. Being a Raymond Carver devotee, twist-in-the-tale endings are a real bug-bear, but if you can forgive this all-too-common literary failing then the book is engrossing and unsettling in equal measures. Asking big questions about modern motherhood, responsibility and nature vs nurture, without spoon-feeding any answers or even reaching any conclusions. It is a refreshingly un-patronising read. In the canon of post-Columbine storytelling, like the print and screen offerings from Coupland, DBC Pierre and Van Sant, it is well worth making time for.
