Some Kind of Brilliant
on 8 March 2017
I loved this book. I REALLY loved this book! I admit, I didn't tji k I would after reading the blurb on the back. I fact if it hadn't been my book group tome, I'd've put it aside. I'm so pleased I didn't; I REALLY LOVED THIS BOOK!
From the very first paragraph, I was drawn in. This bizarre tale told in a way that was at once ridiculous yet utterly believable. The descriptions of 'there' so intriguing, with its new colours and different sounds. Then we were back reality with family life and all the chaos that comes with that. In fact, some of my favourite parts of this book were in Peter and Gen's ramshakle forge with their boisterous kids. And not forgetting the acned boyfriend of Zoe.
I loved all of them, from Tara, to Heiro, to Jack to Dell and Mary. I felt like I was watching the tale unfold in front of my eyes. I almost could talk to the characters, if I was just brave enough. I will miss this book; I will miss the people in it. I just wish the unanswered questions would be resolved in a follow up novel
