5.0 out of 5 stars A haunting tale, 19 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Theo: A Novella (Kindle Edition)
Having just read, and been mesmerized by, PaulTorday's novel 'The girl on the landing' I approached his novella 'Theo' with anticipation. I read it at one sitting and was gripped from the first page. Torday writes brilliantly and creates both unease and belief in his characters for his readers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth persevering with, 25 Oct. 2009
This book was a gift - one of the best as I would never have chosen it myself but am so pleased to have had it given to me and therefore to have read it. It's not an easy read and there were chapters which I skim read, but its hugely fascinating subject - the spread of humanity out of Africa and the rise of civilisations, agriculture and technologies at different rates and different locations - is riveting. The book is a work of serious scholarship and major importance: Nick Griffin please take note!

5.0 out of 5 stars Elegant and insightful, 25 Oct. 2009
I had had this book on my list to read for months but, despite the excellent reviews it had received on publication, had put off reading it, imagining that it would be depressing and that I would need to be feeling unusually positive to tackle it. In fact it was an insightful joy from beginning to end: funny, moving and candidly reflective. Diana Athill is clearly a woman whom it would be a privilege to know, and whose honest company would be a delight, whatever one's own age - or indeed hers.
