5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 29 May 2006
By 
This review is from: The Stranger House (Paperback)
This is the story of two completely contrasting characters whose pasts both lead them to a small English village in search of information, but the local villagers are reluctant to have the past brought back up. I'm not going to mention much more about the plot, as I do not want to ruin the storyline.

This was the first book I had read from Hill, and I must say I was immensely impressed.

The novels good points are numerous: there is the amazing descriptive prose that Hill uses which really brings everything to life, there is also the awesome characterisation of the all the people in the book, and I still haven't mentioned the fantastic plot, which interweaves throughout the book, slowly revealing all in an excellent finale. The book, although long, remains interesting throughout.

At the moment I can think of no bad points - this is how much I enjoyed this book.

I highly recommend this book, it is one of the best I have read this year and is well deserving of 5 stars.
