Best book I have read in ages...
on 4 January 2017
One of the best books I have ever read. Great narrative of a well constructed world - the world of herring fishing in the far North of Scotland. The physical journey it takes you on and the journey of the characters who one comes to love. I visited Wick in the summer and Dalbieth where Gunn comes from and came across a statue of a character from one of his other books. So I asked which his best book was and this was it. I was enthralled.
