5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful tapistry of a tale., 28 Oct. 2010
This review is from: The Book of Human Skin (Paperback)
I really really loved this book. Once I had got to grips with who was who in terms of the different narrators (which didn't take long),I loved the interlacing of everyone's narration. I loved the charaters even though one of them was the incarnation of evil itself,they all made the book so enjoyable. One of the narrators is a servant at the great house and is partly literate so his narration was told with all the spelling errors you'd expect which I thougt would make it harder to read, which it did in a way but not to detract from the tale. In fact it added to it as struggling a bit made it more realistic and sometimes his mistakes were pretty funny. The book keeps you guessing right to the end and lures you back to it when there are more urgent things to be done. The story is clever, horrifying, funny, and very touching and keeps you in suspense throughout. One of the more enjoyable books I have read in a while. Added to that the feel of the cover and the black edge to the pages make you feel that there is something different to this book.
