My daughter was given this book for her birthday and spent so much time laughing out loud that I had to read it too. I absolutely loved it - the descriptions of the island, the islanders, and their beliefs and customs really drew me in. I want to go to Tuma when I die! William's experiences with his OCD give you a flavour of what sufferers go through, without it taking over the story. I'm not really a Shakespeare scholar, but I spotted a few bits of plot that looked familiar. I want my friend with an English degree to read the book next so that she can tell me all the references to Shakespeare plays that I missed. How nerdish is that?!
