A good story from Iain, maybe a little melancholy, or maybe that was the mood I was in,
This review is from: The Quarry (Hardcover)
The Quarry by Iain Banks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have read all the books by Iain Banks, and actually took quite a long time to get round to reading the Quarry. I think of reading this last book, but I finished it in March 2014.
It was with a great deal of sadness that I finally read this book, and the book with its tale of a house destined to fall into a Quarry, was a sad tale which perfectly suited my mood.
It's the story of a reunion of friends who ten or so years after university meet up on the occasion of a funeral, but also to discuss a 'mistake' in this case a video tape they made at Uni, and which most of them now want to destroy.
I won't say much about the story is told from the point of view of Kit who is a teenager with some mild learning difficulty. But this is a good story from Iain, maybe a little melancholy, or maybe that was the mood i read it in.
