There are no words.....,
This review is from: We Need To Talk About Kevin (Five Star Paperback) (Paperback)
....to describe how gripping this book really is. Lionel Shriver had me gripped from the first page. Of all the books that have crossed my palms, to say that it is one of the best would be somewhat of an untruth: it is the best. This is by far the most haunting, harrowing and addictive book I have ever read and that is exactly what I look for in a book. The devastating twist towards the end shook me inexplicably and whilst this book is fiction, it echoes the real life stories from which this book is derived. I would recommend this book highly.... Since reading it, I've not been able to get into another book - no doubt I will, but believe me, it stays with you for a considerable time. You will not be disappointed, it's the book of the century.
