Fantastic and gripping!,
This review is from: Family Portrait (Paperback)
I used to read an awful lot of books when I was much younger, (two to three per week!), but over the last decade I guess that had fallen to no more than one per year if I was lucky, so when I picked up this book in a charity shop I wasn't expecting to read it in much less than a year. Right from the first chapter, though, I was gripped. Gruesome though the descriptions of the flesh strippings are, for me those just added to my enjoyment of the book! It totally captured my imagination to the extent I was putting off doing jobs that needed doing just to see what happened next. I read the book in one month, which as you've read is 12 times faster than my usual consumption! What I would love now is for someone to make a film of the book. I'm sure it would be a smash. It really is right up there with 'A Picture of Dorian Gray'. Do yourself a favour and get a copy today! Thanks Mr. Masterton for a super read...
