A haunting tale told by a mesmeric voice. A thought-provoking rather than an enjoyable read which it would be better to come to knowing nothing about.
What it’s about: I seem to be saying this a lot lately… but I honestly think your experience of this book will be improved if you come to it with no idea what it’s about. If you do want to read the blurb, I’ve put it down at the end of this review. I will say that, in my opinion, this is not a science fiction or dystopian novel, whatever you might hear or however you see it classified.
My take: I would give this book 4/5 stars rather than 5. The writing is excellent, the characters are interesting and you find yourself thinking about the issues it explores long after you finish reading. I can see why so many book clubs choose this!
