Not believable. "Creative writing" it may be but unreadable, really (managed to browse it until the end but even this was too much). One example among too many - middle-aged men do not touch their hair and do not spend their time wondering whether others are doing it more often than themselves. A good warning to blurb writers - try not to overdo it, it may actually come back to hurt the author.
Katharine Kilalea's writing gets inside your head. Years after reading her One Eye'd Leigh, I can still picture some of the incidents her poems portray. I've been waiting for her next work.
I'm delighted that we now have a novel. OK, Mr Field is the same, but on a more ambitious canvas. I'm not sure it's a quick read - each sentence is full of meaning and I find myself going back to reconsider. But it nevertheless has a good flow.
Not many books transport the reader into a different world so effectively. My KK fan status is hereby renewed!
I read this book as somebody who it was recommended to. At first I was reluctant as i had so much on my "to read list" but now i am totally pleased. Some of the language is too transcending for words; descriptions and observations which are unique. A worthy brand new author andnovel for all to read.
