5.0 out of 5 stars A Moving Novel and a Great Read, 13 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Crimson China (Hardcover)
Crimson China is a novel that opens up like the rose it takes it's name from. It's an emotionally intelligent story with wonderful characters and reads like a thriller. The novel transports you into new worlds that are both unfamiliar and totally recognizable. It gives you an insight into what it must be like to struggle with being a Chinese immigrant in the UK. It moved me deeply, and I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A window into a wonderful world, 23 Feb. 2008
This review is from: Ice Land (Paperback)
Ice Land is contemporary faerie tale (without the faeries) where the landscape is as much a driving force in the novel and its community of characters. Tobin's style is tight. Her language is plain, and the narrative is driven by a certain amount of lust and longin and a deep sense of place. It was a treat to be taken by this author's safe pair of hands into this kind of Iceland.

It is a wonderful read.
