4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it, but it's not for everyone, 22 Jun. 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: The Little Friend (Paperback)
It took me a very very long time to read this - it starts a bit slowly and is probably the kind of novel that you should take on holiday rather than read in little snippets. But once I got into it (on holiday!), I was totally absorbed. The most striking aspect of it to begin with was the incredibly evocative writing style, which has something almost poetic about it. Then, I was really taken with the author's ability to get inside the heads of some many completely different characters so convincingly. The real drama of the plot doesn't develop until the latter half of the book, but I found it completely compelling. This is one the best books that I have read in recent years and would recommend it to readers who are looking for a beautifully crafted novel. However, my husband could not get into it as there was not enough of a plot at the beginning to get him to read on, so it is not for everyone.
