Format: Paperback
"Quiddity" is a perfect choice for holiday reading with its easy to read style, meticulously detailed descriptions and glossy, brightly coloured, attention grabbing cover. The story focuses primarily on Jaz (Jasmine), who runs an organic food shop and has a stall at a New Age Festival and her partner Wade. There is a great deal of dramatic interaction between these two and between the other characters in the book, and the pace is almost hectic at times. I was curious from the first page as to where the story was leading me although I did find the abruptness and extremity of some of the changes - endings and beginnings - that occur in different people's lives rather disconcerting at times.

The juxtaposition of the brash, noisy setting of the New Age Festival and the verdant tranquillity of the adjoining forest created an ideal backdrop to the many emotional conflicts in the book.

Krish, a hopeful young artist, was earning money drawing caricatures of festival revellers, and I felt that Mr. Page too was drawing caricatures of his characters - emphasising certain aspects of their personality, but only hinting at the more deeply hidden traits. This has the effect of peopling the novel with fairy tale like characters; Natasha, a young reveller camping with her best friend is portrayed as powerfully manipulative, almost evil. Yet maybe there is a desperately insecure, and interesting, person hidden beneath the Wicked Queen performance. On the other hand Jaz's personable, attractive qualities are frequently emphasised, and I found that after a while I would have liked to see her acting and thinking a little more imperfectly!

I love to read and don't usually read books like this, but i found that i couldn't put it down. It drew me in from the very beginning and all i wanted to do was to read more but life got in the way. I loved the way it flowed and interlinked with different characters. It definitely is a must read! The way the author describes the surroundings and the atmosphere you feel you are actually in the book. I can't wait for another.

I really enjoyed this book. It repeatedly surprised me in a positive way as the story went on. I could so picture myself in it too. 176 pages that I could not and did not put down.
