Luminous and atmospheric,
This review is from: Rook (Paperback)
This is a stunning book - spare, tender, beautiful prose, telling a multi-layered story which delivers no easy answers. The characters are minutely drawn, and the setting is evoked with luminous and atmospheric language. As a 'local' - I happen to live in the village where the book is set - I'm very impressed by how exactly Rusbridge has caught not just the look and landscape of the area, but the feel of the place too.
I loved this book, and my only regret is that I finished it too quickly.
