Gripping, dark but incredibly engaging
on 16 April 2017
I originally picked this book up while traveling in India, it was the only one of a few English language books available and the only one I felt looked worth reading. I since bought another copy to pass to a friend.
I am an intermittent reader, sometimes dragging books out over a few months and occasionally reading them in around a week. This is one of the first books I have picked up and started and not put down until I finished. It isn't the longest, but also not a short story style book.
I read the entire thing until well into the night desperately following through the gripping story of Terrance Cave's personal struggles.
As a reader you don't need to go in to this book with any idea of the plot or story, just know that once started I am sure you will be engaged through to the end.
It is dark and occasionally difficult emotionally, but one of the most engaging and gripping looks at mental health and dealing with it, since reading this book I sought out more from Matt Haig, amongst his other work I would especially recommend the Humans released in 2013.
