Customer Review

on 2 June 2013
Araminta's Hall second novel is just as good as her first, if entirely different. I loved 'Everything and Nothing' for its sharply observed detail about a marriage on the verge of imploding. 'Dot' has that same detail and the same lightness of touch in the writing, but is a family saga about three generations of women trying to make their family, with all its quirks, work as best they can. As well as being the name of our heroine - and I think she is, which is saying something for a 17 year old doing her A levels in Druith, the name Dot reflects the structure of the novel. Like a 3D dot to dot puzzle, the narrative moves across time and perspectives with each character's personal chapters. I really enjoyed dipping into their point of view separately, in detail, as events moved along, and understanding what they misunderstood and why! If you like reading about relationships, family dynamics and women trying to make the best of the hand they're dealt, then I'd recommend this as a great read.
