This review is from: Poppy Shakespeare (Paperback)
This book haunts me. I love the characters, the plot, everything about it. The narration is exactly right. If the language had a higher register it would not work at all. The collocqualisms employed here contribute to a highly evocative read.
Although the tone is humourous, there is something very dark at the heart of this novel, and that is N's disorder. Also, the description of N's ordeal with a firework is chilling as well as funny.
I can't recommend this book enough.
