A Mysterious Book.........,
This review is from: Mr Toppit (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I don't know really what I expected this book to be - but it was quite different to anything I had imagined.
It tells the story of the Hayman family, Arthur and Martha, and their two children, Rachel and Luke. Arthur wrote five children's books - the Hayseed Chronicles - before being killed by a concrete truck in London. Through a series of events involving an American tourist, Laurie, the books receive attention in the States and become best sellers. This creates a sort of theme park in which the family are trapped. As thew tale unfolds it travels from humour to a far darker place. None of the characters come threough unscathed.
I recommend this book.
