This review is from: This is Paradise (Hardcover)
I chose this book on a recommendation of someone at work.
It was not a straight-forward read but it was refreshing to be challenged by writing and i found the story developed gradually, much like the illness of the mother. Bit by bit the family are revealed as individuals. While some reviews complain about them, i liked them. They are like any other family, full of love, regret, anger and moments of infuriating behaviour.
The book is a good read, a family's story through moments both good and bad just as it is in the real world.
