This review is from: The Brandy of the Damned (Kindle Edition)
What an unusual book. It's subtle yet gripping. - without driving any cliches. In fact I can't compare it to anything I've read before.
Towards the end of the story, I felt I had become quite wed to the road trip and I didn't want it to end. But this wasn't the greatest gift that the story delivered. It seemed to me that the author had squared up to 'reality' and given it a knowing wink. I was left thinking - what if the world being described here isn't an alternative - it's just the reality that we ignore every day.
I'm probably wide of the mark - but that's the selfish joy of reading a book and being left alone to draw your own conclusions.
