5.0 out of 5 stars A perfectly good read, 4 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Perfectly Good Man (Kindle Edition)
Another beautifully written masterpiece from Patrick Gale. The dramatic countryside of Cornwall is the backdrop for this tale of good and not so good. Father Barnaby is present at the suicide of Lenny, a young parishioner paralysed in a rugby accident.
Each chapter is written from the perspective of a different character, from different times in their lives. Gale is a master storyteller who cleverly keeps his audience guessing and reveals snippits of information so as a reader you are constantly re-evaluating what you know of the characters. A fantastic read, and a definite contender for my book of the year already. I would love to say so much more, but don't want to ruin your enjoyment of this book by spoiling any of the treats and surprises that are in store for you, read it for yourself and enjoy!
