This review is from: East of Nowhere (Paperback)
This is an extraordinary book. It reminds me in some ways Mike Leigh's film Naked, where a character seems to freefall through a series of chance encounters. I am a fan of this kind of storytelling so was hooked from the outset. Once things start to happen, you never seem to know where the book will take you. As the book progresses, the events and characters all take on a slightly surreal tinge, which requires an element of suspension of disbelief but the author's skill in bringing characters to life means it all works superbly.
As the official Amazon synopsis hints at, there is a streak of black humour running throughout which had me laughing out loud at several points. I recommend this to anybody willing to try something a bit different.
