This review is from: The Fahrenheit Twins and Other Stories (Paperback)
Loved The Crimson Petal, loved Under the Skin, but this did nothing for me. I found the prose transparent and pedestrian in places, and the subject-matter often recalled creative writing groups. Some interesting ideas, but the prose lacked luminosity, lyricism or indeed, anything to make it memorable. I rather wished I hadn't read it; it's knocked the shine of Michel Faber for me!
