Hooked from the first chapter,
This review is from: The Bird Room (Paperback)
The only thing I didn't like about this book was the title. But at the moment I can't think of a better one ... Perhaps Will and William.
To use the same name for the protagonist and the antagonist is key in this story. It keeps you confused until the very end ... and then all of sudden everything makes sense. It made me feel sad and disgusted and happy at the same time.
In short Will or William (who's just left his job and spends his days doing nothing) can't believe his luck when a girl called Alice wants to be his girlfriend. He just makes one big mistake: introducing him to his so-called best friend Will or William ...
In another part of town, Helen - a girl not unlike Alice - is making money from acting. But it's not exactly Shakespeare ... and her path crosses Will's or William's path in a way you'd not expected.
I was hooked from the first chapter and couldn't stop reading. I loved the Bird room because of the way it's written. It's simplistic yet complicated with a clever twist.
