This quotation from the final pages of this novel (and I’m not giving the story away here) says it all, "like a postmodern canvas. If you end your story, it’s a static work of art, a finite circle. But if you don’t, it belongs to anyone’s imagination. It stays alive forever.". I can honestly say this is a story which will stay with me forever. I take my hat off to you Jodi and salute you. I have studied literature at third level and post-modernism has always left me a little baffled, but now I get it! The final outcome did not surprise me, I had suspected it in advance. Regardless, this is a story of multiple, complex layers yet simplistic in its depiction of humanity and the basic decency which we all hope will always overcome evil. A potent and timely reminder in view of the recent resurgence of nationalism and anti-immigration policies worldwide.
