Customer Review

on 23 December 2012
I picked this up expecting perfectly crafted prose - given this is written by a well recognised novelist - but gained the impression it had been dashed off: written in ill-considered haste. It was full of - I think not deliberate - word repetitions and felt like it was in need of a good edit. Yes the story is a poignant one, but with a little more care it could have been a lot more powerful. I didn't get the impression her characters knew their local wildlife as well as they should have done. There were also a few plot points which didn't ring true. I don't want to give away the end, but the change in the father was - to me, a practising physician - not believable. All in all this was disappointing from this lauded author.
