This review is from: The Kashmir Shawl (Paperback)
This is vintage Rosie Thomas and her best book since 'The Sun at Midnight'! In fact, it piqued my interest so much that I was even moved to google Kashmir to find out more about the area and to see pictures of the things and places that were described in the novel. A really cracking story about characters who became so real to me by the end of the book, that I almost want to keep in touch with them when I'd finished reading it - as is so often the case with Rosie Thomas's writing. I was torn between wanting to gobble this book up as quickly as possible and wanting to ration my reading in order to savour it for as long as possible, but, in actual fact, once I'd started it, I simply couldn't put it down. A really fantastic read and bonus points for enabling me to become much better informed about Kashmir, an area that is now on my travel wishlist!
