5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant. In every possible sense of the word, 22 May 2012
This review is from: The Panopticon (Hardcover)
I have just finished reading this book and have to say it is pretty much as perfect a book as you can find. I finished it 2 days ago and in my idle moments I am still pondering over the characters. To me, it's incredible that somebody created this world for me to have a peep into. I feel like I've actually lived in this book. The characters are people I know, the scenes were something I witnessed. There are sad bits, there are horrendous bits, there are moments of pure love and hope. There are several moments where I bellowed with laughter and yes, I cried. I scoffed this book up in a few bites, couldn't put it down but unlike most 'scoffable' books - I am still thinking about it. Wondering about the different endings that there could have been. Worrying about the characters. Finding myself wishing better lives for them.

A book about hope, a book about friendship, a book about the world we live in, even if we don't necessarily live in THAT world. A book about sadness and the need for love. A book about adventure and dreams. A book about stark realities. A book to make you hold your loved ones even closer.

I hope this book does really well - it certainly deserves to - but mostly, I'm so delighted I read it and got to meet the fabulous, vulnerable, hilarious, creative, hard-as-nails, loyal and wonderful Anais Hendricks.

All of this and then you realise that this is Jenni Fagan's debut novel - it's pretty breathtaking.
