The Cone Gatherers,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Cone-Gatherers: A Haunting Story of Violence and Love (Canongate Classics) (Kindle Edition)
After reading The Changling by Robin Jenkins, which I loved, I had to read another book by him as soon as possible.The Cone Gatherers is so well written,a dark, compelling story of the cone gathering brothers on an estate in Scotland during the second world war.The estates' gamekeeper, Duror, becomes obsessed with one of the brothers who is a hunchbacked, simple minded but happy and pleasant character.As time goes on Duror becomes to hate and want to kill Calum.An unpleasant but interesting story which I couldn't put down, can't wait to read more by this author and throughly recommend anyone to read The Cone Gatheres, you won't be disappointed.
