best book I've read this year!,
This review is from: The Knot (Kindle Edition)
this is a stunning book - exquisitely lyrical and poetic, yet immensely readable. the descriptions of the natural world are such that we can smell the scent of crushed grass, feel the salt mud of the Somerset levels between our toes, and see the eerie blue cast of the comet light.
There is a sense of slow- burning foreboding tbroughout; death is always in season, yet it never comes in the ways we expect.
If you read nothing else this year, read this. It will linger in your mind for seasons to come.
