One of those books I was sad to finish
on 4 March 2015
Having bought this a while ago and then somehow losing it in my Kindle- this book was a really lovely and unexpected find - a bit like pulling a chocolate wrapper out from the back of the sofa and discovering it's actually a twenty pound note (although obviously discovering it was a wrapper that still had chocolate in it would be even better). It is hardly news that this award-winning novel is a brilliant read, and it's difficult to add anything useful to the millions of existing reviews but let me just say; I was hooked from the first. I especially loved how it opened with the secondary characters. In so many books the other characters are a bit of an afterthought - or just identikit caricatures - but here the entire cast was strong and engaging. I loved Rosie and Jason nearly as much as Jemima and Ben. Maybe an idea for a future book? Just a thought...
