4.0 out of 5 stars Comedy and more, 23 Aug. 2011

This review is from: Alison Wonderland (Kindle Edition)
The genre is difficult to define - with elements of mystery, detective and a touch of farce, this is a book that's light in the sense of entertaining (as all books should be) but not so light as to be frothy and inconsequential. Helen Smith's writing is spare (which I prefer) but also full of sharp observations of character and of life. The various sub-plots keep everything rolling along nicely but my main interest was in the heroine Alison, curiously adrift in her own life, and in how her journey would unfold. I particularly liked Taron, a quirky side-kick who helps Alison to self-understanding. I was a little dissatisfied with potential romantic interest which did not seem to contribute much to anything - but perhaps that was the point. All in all a quirky and entertaining read with lots of comic moments. I'll be looking out for more books from this writer.
