Top critical review
Nicely written but not a cheerful book
on 18 March 2014
I read this book for my book group and didn't much enjoy it. Two reasons, firstly the subject was fairly grim and secondly I found there was too much description which went on and on a bit too much for me... I don't wish to shy away from difficult reads but I didn't feel this book found the right balance and wouldn't much recommend it.
